The last day of May has arrived and here in Aberdeen it is feeling particularly summery. It's been a funny old month for me personally, professionally and in my blogging life. I feel like I've packed a year's worth of ups and downs into one month and I will be glad to see the back … Continue reading Goodbye May, Hello Summer
I'm writing this post as a reminder to everyone who is struggling at the moment - It's ok give up. It's ok to fail. It's ok to admit that you are overwhelmed and need a break. The irony that I'm posting this so I don't fail in the challenge I set myself to blog every … Continue reading It’s OK To Need A Break
I've been meaning to write a post about this for ages and a conversation this morning was the kick up the butt I needed to make it happen.

Yesterday was the day of the scary doctor's appointment. I wasn't sure if I was going to go and … Continue reading Why is this so hard to write?
Today I did a scary thing, tomorrow's blog post will be all about it, but having that hanging over me for a while among other things has made this month a bit of a write-off. I know what you're thinking, I've blogged every day, held down my job, looked after my crazy elderly kitty and … Continue reading Progress Not Perfection – Self Care Goals
Blogging every day this month has been tough at times. It's not easy to come up with meaningful content everyday while working full time and trying to carry on as normal. For example I went out to meet a friend tonight and I'm now writing this at 11pm hoping that I will be finished before … Continue reading The Realities of Daily Blogging
Today it would be so easy to focus on the worst of humanity. The bombing in Manchester rocked the UK to its core meanwhile in other parts of the world there are atrocoties being commited every day. Yet, despite all this, today we have been surrounded by outpourings of love; for the missing, the wounded … Continue reading Love Trumps Hate
So the original post that was here was 35 words because I was not in a good place on Monday so today I'm re-writing this and turning it in to the post I wanted to write in the first place.
