‘Twas the night before her 30’s….

It’s the night before my 30th birthday and I feel crap.   I’ve been simultaneously dreading and looking forward to tomorrow for a while.  I’ve been dreading it because I will actually be 30. When I was young and naive I thought I’d be much more prepared for this day. I’m not! A lot of… Continue reading ‘Twas the night before her 30’s….

New Year, New Me?

A new year brings resolutions for many people, and I’m no different. This year though, as I’m entering my 30th year, I’ve given it more thought than I normally would. I didn’t just want to make the same knee-jerk resolution to lose weight. That’s why this post is a week later than you’d expect it.Below… Continue reading New Year, New Me?

Christmas 2016 – Santa vs Scrooge

I LOVE Christmas. Normally by the big day I’d have watched several dozen or so Christmas films, had the Christmas CD on repeat and made the house look like a tinsel factory had exploded.

I just don’t know what to right about.  Part of me blames Dans friend for blabbermouthing – not that there was anything to blabbermouth… Continue reading Losing my Blogging Mojo

Bath Christmas Markets

This past weekend Dan and I traveled to Bath for the Christmas Market. We were staying with his parents in North Cadbury, so the four of us visited Bath for the day, did some Christmas shopping and had dinner together.  I’ve never visited Bath before but I’d heard good things, and I love Christmas so… Continue reading Bath Christmas Markets

Looking for the Rainbow

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” I was lucky enough to see two rainbows today in work. At nearly 30 years old I still think there’s something magical about Rainbows. Seeing their happy colours peeking out from grumpy grey clouds never fails to make… Continue reading Looking for the Rainbow
