Podcasts are mentioned a lot these days and you can find one on pretty much any topic. I started listening to podcasts, well one, about two years ago but instantly became hooked… It wasn’t until towards the end of last year that I began to get more into podcasts as opposed to just the one… Continue reading PODCASTS: MY FAVOURITES
A topic everyone is talking about right now. Understandably so, and I feel like putting my two cents in. I have been working from home for 5 weeks now and have had 2 weeks Easter holidays thrown in and it has been weird. As a primary school teacher, my days are usually filled with 20+… Continue reading PRODUCTIVITY DURING LOCKDOWN?
Waaah. Aaaargh. Oh God. Just keep going. And various other random sounds were expressed during my first run in 3 years. I have never actually completed a 5k until this run. 45 minutes… So let’s face it, I need to shave 5 minutes off each mile. And work on just slowing my pace instead of… Continue reading FIRST RUN IN 3 YEARS
Well hello there… Again. I’ve been MIA for a few weeks now. I was loving blogging again, writing and posting regularly. And then, as it tends to do, life got in the way. A lot was going on for 6/7 weeks and it completely threw me out of my routine. But, like I always do… Continue reading HELLO… AGAIN!
This post is well overdue and posts like this will always be a bit controversial. Everyone looks for different things when they’re at a theme park so by no means is this a definite list, this is just my, five favourite rides from Universal Studios Orlando. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure This ride had only… Continue reading UNIVERSAL: TOP 5
Let’s talk books. I have a whole category on the blog related to books, I’m an avid reader, and scroll through the goodreads app far too often. For me, reading is a form of self-care, it’s ‘me’ time and I love nothing more than getting lost in a good book. I’ve recently read a few… Continue reading 20 BOOKS FOR 2020
This post is looong overdue so, apologies! Well well well… We all knew it wouldn’t be long before I started writing about books again. This was a post I had to think about for a while and luckily, my friend had a great idea, thanks Beth! I wanted to write about my top Summer reads… Continue reading BOOKS OF THE SUMMER
Buongiorno! Ciao! I have recently returned from a trip to Rome, Italy. A city I discovered, and fell in love with, in 2016. It’s somewhere I had always wanted to visit (I mean, who didn’t after watching the Lizzie McGuire Movie?!) In 2016, I realised it was even more than I ever could have imagined.… Continue reading I LEFT MY HEART IN ROME (AGAIN)!
July of this year saw me having an incredible two weeks in Orlando, Florida with Ian. This trip had been a long time coming. I had been to Orlando twice previously, once in 2003 and once in 2007, and for our (almost) six-year relationship, I had been bugging Ian about going together. When we booked,… Continue reading A FORTNIGHT IN THE SUNSHINE STATE
If this post makes it online, it means one very important thing: I have survived my first term as a primary school teacher. That certainly calls for celebration. These past 8 weeks I have experienced so many different emotions but most importantly, I’m happy and love my job… Even if I am shattered. I’ve felt… Continue reading TERM 1 – COMPLETE.
