Time is always a funny of thing, we always seem to be running out of it, making the most of it, wasting it or wishing it away. Very rarely are we left with a sense of ‘perfect time’ or a perfect amount of it. Time has always been an enigma, but 2020 seems to have played havoc with it in a way that I’ve never experienced before. (more…)
I think a lot of us have had a love hate relationship with Instagram for a long time now. I know that my own relationship with it has been through many different phases.

That way I’m even more likely to work towards them and hopefully in a years time I will be sitting here writing that I have checked them off.

I want 2019 to be the year that I can say that I am proud of all areas of my life. However, I think it’s important to be specific with goals and resolutions so I have split them down into categories and smaller aspirations which I will share with you now. (more…)
Wow! Where to begin with 2018? It has been quite the year and I feel like a lot has happened for me and my family, which I am going to attempt to summarise in this post. I’m almost daunted by writing this post, as I know I will miss bits and fail to do other bits justice. But I have to try, so here we are! My best bits from 2018.
