Welcome to 2018! Here is hoping it is good to us all! I've been thinking about what I would personally like to achieve in 2018, so here is a list (basically for my own referral and public shaming if I don't manage it) of what I want from 2018: Buy a house/flat Complete a reading… Continue reading Happy New Year!
Yay for time off! Finally its the holiday season, where I plan to eat a horrific amount of food, play video games and enjoy being with friends and family. When I was younger, I really hated Christmas, because it was always a messy situation in my family home. So naturally I wasn't much of a… Continue reading Christmaaaaaassssss!
Today's post comes from my good wee pal, Paperblank Prompts: Cosy blankets and copious amounts of tea! Admittedly, I am not a fan of winter. I am happy in my cosy house but when I have to go outside, that's just criminal. But I get the slow cooker on, shove loads of tasty food in… Continue reading Creature Comforts
Not LITERALLY, but more for an enjoyable reason! The purpose of this blog was to encourage me to try enjoy writing again and so far its been a slow process. I don't do this for any personal gain nor do I expect it to ever flourish into anything more than a hobby for me, but… Continue reading Learning to write again
Not going to lie, this post comes straight from my bed. The bed I have been dreaming about crawling back into since 9am this morning (it's now 11:48pm on Sunday night) and one of the places I love being the most.

Since starting my new job, I really have come to realise just how precious my weekends are. The oppertunity to relax and see my friends and family means so much more to me now than it ever has done in the past! Even when I am just sitting on the couch with a book, now… Continue reading Living for the weekend
My wonderful parents-in-law bought me a Kindle Paperwhite for my Christmas and since then I have been HOOKED! I loved reading when I was younger but I have hardly read since University, where I managed to burn myself out reading for my degree (thanks, English Language & Literature!) and reading lost all enjoyment. It no… Continue reading Regaining the joy of reading
The last few weeks I have been a little Croydon bird, living in a hotel and attending training for my new job. I'm currently in week 4 of 5 and I feel like the training is starting to settle into my brain, I'm putting it into practice so it's making sense at last! I have… Continue reading Training in Croydon
An evening with my laptop!? Inconceivable! What I REALLY should be doing is studying for my Japanese mid-term, but I am currently taking a break from the books to catch up a little on life. So much has happened since my last update! Tomorrow is my final day at my current job - I recently… Continue reading An update!
