How I’ve Changed in 10 Years

Admittedly, this is probably something I should have posted a little bit earlier in 2020, but I struggled to get out the content I’d already planned, so anything extra was definitely a bit unrealistic. Anyway, towards the end of 2019, there were loads of people doing the Ten Year Challenge. I had a go at… Continue reading How I’ve Changed in 10 Years

Attempting to Be Eco Friendly When You Have OCD

I won’t lie, I feel as though my OCD is the sole reason why I don’t engage in as many environmentally friendly behaviours.

This week is a very special week. As of Valentine’s Day this week, Liam and I will have been together for 12 years. I know of a few people who absolutely HATE Valentine’s Day, and I kind of agree that it’s a massive marketing ploy to sell extra flowers, booze and chocolates after the post… Continue reading 14.02.2009

January 2020 Wrap Up

Hey friends. As promised, today is going to be my first monthly wrap up of 2020. I initially set myself the goal so that I could do more things (so that I’d actually have stuff to talk about), and so I could reflect back on my goals at the end of each month to keep… Continue reading January 2020 Wrap Up
