Day in the Life

I love my job. Whilst it’s a whirlwind of meetings, calls, emails, plans and travel, the days when I feel fed up about work are very rare indeed. The most frequent question my friends and family ask me is “so what is it you actually do…?”, so what better way to explain than a day…

26

Ahh another year has passed and I’m another year older. As with the past few birthdays, I like to use this time to reflect, so here’s 26 changes and lessons from this last year… Family I made the move to Manchester with the mister which meant no more long distance. We turned Little O’s new…

Pizza & Prosecco Fest

So I have a little addiction that I need to tell you about… I’m obsessed with pizza. Most of the time I like to keep this dough-y, cheesy affliction to myself, but last weekend I managed to convince H from work that an afternoon of prosecco drinking and pizza munching was exactly what she needed!…

A Love Letter to Leeds

Oh Leeds, you little beauty. The move to Leeds city centre was always going to be an emotional one. My life had been turned upside down pretty much overnight, and after an emotional Christmas and New Year (think Bridget Jones 1), I was ready for my new start and you were raring to go, palms…

In Defence of Kids Getting Older

2015 Year of Re-Discovery

2015. Even just attempting to sum up the year in one post is proving incredibly difficult but it’s probably best started in this way: 2015 was a topsy turvy, insidey outy type of year. After coming to the end of my long term relationship, I was faced with lots of change. A new place to…

Possibilitarian

Life is a challenge. On a daily basis I’m faced with some many factors that challenge my positivity, some days its my own mind that I struggle to stay chipper with. However, the other day I came across the quote above. It hit a nerve. So many people comment on my general mood; friends, work…

See Ya Summer

Summer’s a goner. I, for one, am pretty pleased to hear this. Whilst the summer sun definitely perks up a bad day, the cool Autumn breeze is my absolute favourite. Crisp weather, walks wrapped up in jumpers, and cosy evenings on the sofa with hot mugs of tea. Yes please, all of the above. However,…
