2019 goals toolkit [+ giveaway]

I loved Sophie Cliff's post on setting goals about feeling rather than doing, and so this year I'm not going to strive for more followers, write out a list of places to visit, or aim to finally lose the baby weight (is it still considered baby weight after three years?!). Instead I'm going to focus… Continue reading 2019 goals toolkit [+ giveaway]

What I’ve been reading lately #12

Now that I've finished with the ol' commute for the year, it's time for my final 'what I've been reading lately' of the year. Cos we all know the real reason I work a 90-minute bus ride away is so I actually have time to read! ;) 'scuse the lack of photos for most of… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #12

Getting my shit together [part 2]

Last weekend I set myself some goals and actions with my new Get Your Shit Together Journal*. So how did I do? Monday #1 This is an ongoing process.

2018 goals update (six months in)

I have a tendency to set goals for the year and only revisit them 12 months later when it's time to write some new ones. This year, I've been taking some time to reflect at the end of each month and thought I'd do a little halfway post to give myself a kick up the… Continue reading 2018 goals update (six months in)

Getting my shit together, Will & Grace and actual me time #LittleLoves

Taking nearly three weeks off work over Christmas made Monday morning such a shock to the system. My alarm went off at 6.30am and I so wasn't ready. And I didn't half miss Jenson. I hate only seeing him for an hour before bed but it made yesterday even more special - even when he… Continue reading Getting my shit together, Will & Grace and actual me time #LittleLoves

A post-Christmas book haul

You can never have too many books, although I do need to spend some time reorganising my bookshelves before I go back to work next week. Y'see, I had some pennies and vouchers left under my Christmas tree and so it would have been rude not to buy seven new books, right? Feast your eyes… Continue reading A post-Christmas book haul

My goals for 2018

A couple of weeks ago I reflected on the goals I set for 2017 and, while I had a good stab at some of them, there are some I want to carry forward into the new year. I realised that these are the things I want to consistently do more of: 1. Make more time… Continue reading My goals for 2018
