Do We Put *Unnecessary Pressure On Ourselves?

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” – Confucius. Perhaps the best cure to all of our deepest worries in life isn’t in the chapters of the latest self help book, but in the caves of our ancestors. Wouldn’t life be a whole lot less stressful if we just ran barefootContinue reading “Do We Put *Unnecessary Pressure On Ourselves?”

Fun & Easy Ways To Treat Yourself

Fun & Easy Ways To Treat Yourself Let’s face it, we can be too hard on ourselves sometimes.  Whether it’s through our work, relationships or simply our daily lives, it’s safe to say that we can all be a little too impatient and a little too demanding of ourselves from time to time.

The Simple Way To Feel Better

Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. A stroll in the park, a sunbathe in the garden, a trip to the seaside. Yet, we as a society can easily overlook these little pleasures in life at times as we set our sights on the newest phone, the bigger house or the better car.Continue reading “The Simple Way To Feel Better”

Boredom-Busting Ideas

I’ve been trying to find new ways to keep myself occupied, especially since ‘winter is coming; and we all know what that entails. Stomach ulcers from too much hot tea drinking and cold sores from too much mistletoe snogging (well perhaps not this year mind you). Anyway the fact is I’m finding that boredom isContinue reading “Boredom-Busting Ideas”

The Great Indoors

As you down your vitamin D tablets like the sun-loving junkie that you are, perhaps with the other hand you could do something  a little bit more pleasurable (not like that), during these unprecedented times we find ourselves in. Below, from the fluffy fun depths of my mind, I share with you just some ofContinue reading “The Great Indoors”

The Arrival…..

From the Coronavirus to Storm Ciara, it feels like judgement day has well and truly arrived. I helped an old lady cross the road last week, so for that alone I’m sure Jesus will bless me with the golden ticket straight up the squeaky escalator to Heaven and by doing so ensure that the fieryContinue reading “The Arrival…..”

Poem: Winter

  Cheeks flushed crimson, Embers crackle, As the smoke billows beyond the seams of the Oak smoked door.   A faint glow from within the forest, The little cottage. Offering temporary relief, From a permanent frost.   Brave the wind, the rain and the snow. A feat too difficult for now. Yet a necessity forContinue reading “Poem: Winter”

Animal Instincts

If you could choose to be any animal in the world, which would you choose to be?   This thought sprung to mind as I watched my sister’s cat lick her wounds in a state of a pure delusion. The 5 year old tabby was shell shocked moments after being bitten in the spine byContinue reading “Animal Instincts”

Is Talent Subpar To Appearance?

“As a woman you are constantly fighting against only being valued for your looks, because it becomes a very tenuous thing, to be defined by the gaze of others. And beauty is, by definition, ephemeral: it’s a thing you can’t trap in time. It’s a butterfly: it lives for a second. So to make aContinue reading “Is Talent Subpar To Appearance?”

When Will This Nightmare End?!

I feel like the whole world and its dog has chewed me up, sh*t me out and then sh*t on me that little bit more this last month. Yes, I  don’t just want you to cue the violins, I want you to cue the whole damn orchestra.   I think we all have times inContinue reading “When Will This Nightmare End?!”

Day Trip – Woburn Safari park

Zoos are pretty dichotomous places. Good for their conservation of an endangered breed yet bad  by preventing an animal from living in its natural habitat. Many more pros and cons come into play when determining whether there is a need for a zoo or not. But I’ll keep that discussion in the pipeline, for todayContinue reading “Day Trip – Woburn Safari park”
