Is it me or is there not a glossy magazine that is marketed for my age group. I just stood in my local supermarket thinking I would treat myself to a magazine. I stood there for quite some time dismissing every magazine I picked up. In the past I have loved reading Glamour magazine but… Continue reading What’s with today’s glossy magazines?
I remember saying to my parents as a teenager... I'm bored. Scroll on nearly 20 years and thanks to the digital age I doubt I will never hear my daughter say that. Everything is easy to access these days. 24/7 information at a tap of a finger. The phrase "Don't worry I will google it"… Continue reading Time will tell
I grew up swimming, to be fair my nan was a swimming teacher so I didn't really have a choice! Today was a huge day. We did it, we went swimming! Normally that wouldn't be a huge deal as swimming is a pretty normal activity but since my accident I've been dreading it. Lifting a… Continue reading We did it!
And doing to anyway. Next week I plan to take Ruby swimming. To 99% of people that is a pretty normal thing to do, but for me it fills me with dread. As a kid I loved swimming. My nan was the local swimming teacher so I was often thrown in at the deep end… Continue reading Fighting the fear
Yesterday I was ready to jack all this in. Writing that is! Wailing to the tune of not enough time to do it all. Then today thanks to rain, and a two hour delay on the a14 resulting in me turning around for a work from home day I had a good think. Plus my… Continue reading Had a wobble

This week is all about paying for building regulations, organising a BBQ, working out if our new house actually has cavity wall… Continue reading A holiday that isn’t a holiday.
Doesn't mean I'm not writing. My head is full of ideas but lack of time is my nemesis. Other things get in the way. Life. I'm not moaning. Far from it. I love being busy spending time with the family, sorting the house out and other bits and pieces. I went to the library and… Continue reading Lack of writing
Dreaming what you want to be when you grow up is meant to happen when you are small right? Choices made at the early age. To do the right exams and get the right grades to land that dream job. I did that. And I got a law degree. It's been over 10 years since… Continue reading Realisation of a dream.
Ha! Self doubt. I know all about that in bucket loads. It's true no one is perfect, because perfect isn't real. This week has been full of ups and downs: Ups Finally succeeded in a target at work We had wees in the potty Got to my first target of writing 20,000 words in my… Continue reading How to banish self doubt.
