If you’re going through hell…

  ‘If you’re going through hell my dear, just keep going’.* Do not stop to dwell on your surroundings. Your current hell is not where you belong, a beautiful paradise is waiting for you. And although the perfection that awaits will ultimately fade and your hell will rear its ugly head once more, just remember

Zzzzzz…

How are you sleeping? Do you pay much attention to your sleep? Do you have a routine? I am very much open to suggestions, please give me your ‘sleep advice’. I have a very strange relationship with sleep. It’s actually very much a love/hate relationship. IĀ  hate having to go to sleep but I also

When life hands you a wobble, just crack on.

  We’ve all been there, life is going along swimmingly, you’re juggling all of your eggs, they’re all lined up in their baskets, then suddenly there’s a tiny little shift and an egg starts to wobble, maybe it rolls to the edge of the table… Of course, you start to panic, you focus all of

It’s not a f**king headache!

    Right. I want to get one thing straight. A migraine is NOT a headache. I know, I sound like a broken record but I won’t shut up until this is common knowledge. A migraine is a neurological disorder and a headache is just one of the many symptoms which may occur during a

Will the robots destroy the books?

  Is reading really becoming a thing of the past? I highly doubt it. But it is becoming less popular and this makes me sad. When I look at my teenager I want to weep with frustration, for many, many, reasons, one of which is that he has zero interest in reading. Zero. When I

How to Disney…

  I’m a planner, I like to plan. I like to have order and I like to be organised. It’s not military precision, I can cope with being a few minutes late here and there, although that does entirely depend on what it is I’m doing at the time. If you’re going out for a

Do you WANT goals?

Or do you just want to live your life?   Everywhere I look these days it’s all, #goals what are your goals? Set your goals! Achieve your goals! Live your dreams! Dreams! Goals! Dreams! Goals! Argh!   Now, while I love how positive this is and I think it is important to have goals, to

‘So, what do you do?’

Well… I hate being asked what I do for a living, not because I have a problem telling people I’m a cleaner but because that’s not the only thing I do and telling people all my other stuff is a great way to get it seen, read, watched etc. But it’s a whole boring, garbled

The lone wolf…

    I just don’t do well in groups. I’m not saying I don’t work well in groups, I can work efficiently in a group, I just don’t thrive in that environment. On my own I am the idea lady, I can plan, strategise and organise until the cows come home but stick me in
