29 Lessons

This post is becoming somewhat of a birthday tradition. I started this coming up to my 27th birthday, and I’ve updated the post each year after. It’s interesting looking back on last year’s post - as my naïve little self had been hoping lockdown would have been over by the time my birthday on the… Continue reading 29 Lessons

Reaching Out to Loved Ones During Lockdown | Brew Monday 2021

The third January of every month is classed as Blue Monday - statistically, the most depressing day of the year. General reasons for that could be because we’re all a bit down following the Christmas festivities, no one has any money following Christmas and the long run up to payday, and the weather is a… Continue reading Reaching Out to Loved Ones During Lockdown | Brew Monday 2021

December 2020 Wrap Up

So here it is, my final wrap up of the absolute piece of crap that was 2020. I’ll be honest, again, not much happened given the restrictions that we were under (thankfully we were only tier 2, now tier 3), so I feel this will be a rather short wrap up. I’m honestly so done… Continue reading December 2020 Wrap Up

September 2020 Wrap Up

It finally feels like I’m getting back into some sort of routine with my blog - it’s only taken me two months, but I’m very slowly getting there! I’m still not quite up to date with my monthly wrap ups, but again, I’m getting there. September has certainly been a much better month, and a… Continue reading September 2020 Wrap Up

June 2020 Wrap Up

I can’t actually believe we’re over halfway through the year now. It’s been an interesting one. I for one am looking forward to how utterly shitfaced I’m going to get on new year’s eve this year, as I’m sure the rest of the UK - and indeed, the world - will. Out of all the… Continue reading June 2020 Wrap Up

Summer Throwbacks

I originally wrote this post back in Summer 2020, when Covid-19 had fucked up pretty much all of our summers. Some of us managed to get away and enjoy a staycation or two, while others were lucky enough to get a cheeky trip abroad before they brought in quarantine rules - however, we did none… Continue reading Summer Throwbacks

Lockdown Silver Linings

I’ve seen a few of these posts over the last couple of weeks so I’ve decided to create my own. While the COVID-19 pandemic has well and truly fucked EVERYTHING up, a good way to keep our sanity can be to have a look at the silver linings of what lockdown has meant for us.… Continue reading Lockdown Silver Linings

Send a Smile with Personalised Gifts From PrintsField | GIFTED

Lockdown has certainly seen an increase in us all sending little bits and pieces to our loved ones as a way of cheering them up. Whether it's care packages, letterbox gifts, or homemade treats, it’s a lovely way to spread a little kindness. But what if you want to go with something a little more… Continue reading Send a Smile with Personalised Gifts From PrintsField | GIFTED

28 | Quarantine Edition

The 4th of May was my 28th birthday. As I write this I’m feeling that post-birthday comedown and feeling quite sad that it’s over for another year. Spending my birthday in quarantine wasn’t particularly the celebration I expected, but overall, I had the best day. In spite of everything, it was one of the best… Continue reading 28 | Quarantine Edition

2019 in Review

I can’t believe we’re officially coming to the end of 2019. It only feels like yesterday I was writing my 2018 in Review post, which just so happened to be my first ever post on Sassy Cat Lady. It’s so cliche to say that the time has flown by, but it really has done this… Continue reading 2019 in Review
