Decompress

Walking In Woods

April Monthly Catch up!

Magazines stack

I was sitting here having a think, realising I’d not done my monthly catch up!  About time really.  I honestly thought April was a quiet month, with not much happening…turns out I was wrong.  Lots went on, I just simply forgot!  I doubt I’m alone on this front, this is why I quite like doing these […]

Bullet Journal Plan With Me

Bujo Weekly Close Up

I’ve talked about my Bullet Journal before.  It’s very much all about function above form, I use my bullet journal for work, life and blog/youtube.  Also, I’m not particularly wonderful at making it pretty, or maybe I just don’t spend the time practising? Who knows?  Either way, I need a very functional bullet journal.

Moving to the Countryside?

Looking Right Red Wall

It’s been a few months now since we moved to the wilds of Suffolk after 10 years in Brighton.  I was born and bred in the countryside, so this felt like coming home.  I’m aware that there is a fairytale like thought about what life is like when you move to the countryside, so I […]

It feels like it happened months ago, but on the 17th January 2018, Simon and I flew out of Gatwick airport on an evening flight and arrived three hours later in Keflavík airport, Iceland.  I’d organised this as a wee birthday trip for Simon.  Once we’d gathered our things we boarded a bus to take us […]

Being Authentically Me

Deep breath.  OK.  So, something a bit different today, I fancied a chat about what has been going on, what I’m up to and all that jazz.  2018 is the year I’m going to focus more on the fraudy feelings, or impostor syndrome as it’s most commonly known!  I attended a conference at the end […]

Where Have The Vlogs Gone?

So you might have noticed that I’ve stopped posting the vlogs on my blog – mostly because they were just video focused with minimal writing.  I did try the option of sharing photos I’d been taking throughout my week and what I’d gotten up to, but there was no taste for it, so for my […]

Bedroom Makeover

Well it’s about time! I’ve finally finished (for now) our bedroom makeover.  We’re currently staying at Simon’s home-place since we got back from Bali, saving for the next step.  That means we’re sleeping in Simon’s childhood bedroom and it hadn’t been touched since he was a teenager!  So it was a proper boys bedroom, there […]
