Monday was a huge day for personal reasons. I could finally put a chapter in my life that I didn't really like away.

Well yes, I'm nearly 35, but that's not the point. When I was a kid I thought my mum was the font of all knowledge, the woman who knew everything and the one person who had all the answers.

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
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
