My Word of the Year 2019: Present

Last year was somewhat of a disaster for me personally. Family members and friends became sick and I lost others that I wasn’t planning on losing. People are supposed to live forever! It came as a great shock to me to find out that they don’t. My own health deteriorated last year to the point that in December 2018, I felt the need to contact the DVLA about surrendering my driving license. A difficult decision you’ll understand. Especially as I can’t just jump in the car when I want 5 minutes peace or if I want to go somewhere!

Waste Not Want Not…

This weekend, the berries on the elder tree in the garden were finally ready to pick! I wasted no time collecting as many as my small stature (5’2″) allowed! Unfortunately, my meagre height didn’t allow for enough collection so I sneaked off to the tree on the green next to our house to get more from there.

The last month or so has been quite busy. We’ve been organising our living room and I’ve been organising my yarn stash. I’m cataloguing it all so I know what I have so I can plan my projects better.

Podcast Episode 10 – Where I’ve Been & What I’ve Been Up To!

OK OK! I really should have done a podcast before now! You will understand how ill I’ve been. I’ve also been really stressed with everything over the last few months. Getting up in the morning and putting one foot in front of the other has been really difficult enough without thinking about anything else. Now I’m settled and I’m thinking more about other things, I feel like I’m ready to move on and start podcasting again! So what have I been up to?!?!?

Mood Blanket 2018

A lot of people do blankets every year based on the temperature or the colour of the sky or weather. I’ve been wanting to do something similar but different because let’s face it, I like to be awkward! So after much thought and lots of brain storming, I had a brainwave! I have this thing… Continue reading Mood Blanket 2018

Self Care CAL – Men Need Self Care Too…

I was reminded this week that men need self care too so I wanted to write a post about this. In my opinion, there’s not a lot that men can do that women can’t and vice versa but I thought I’d share some blokey things you could do. Build a man cave. – If you… Continue reading Self Care CAL – Men Need Self Care Too…
