Doughnut to Dynamite

View this post on Instagram This week’s #happiness has come from decent coffee; uplifting chats; a car wash-themed kiddo’s birthday party (we love a bit of child labour round here); a dance class; some run-plod-jog-type action and, finally, a brief but beautiful spell of rain yesterday. I also paid a visit to a friend who’s going through a rotten time at the moment, and I think the silliness that ensued helped, a bit. I continued plugging away at the ol' #endloneliness chat – I know it might seem a bit gloomy to some, but since the studies (and, ya know,…

Chewing the cud

View this post on Instagram I'm no florist and really don't have the foggiest when it comes to specifying what kind of flowers 💐🌷🌼🌻these might be, but what I do know is that they are bright, they are colourful, and looking at them brings cheer to my world. And who knows, maybe #floralfriday is a thing, these days? Either way, here's wishing you all a suitably upbeat, happy-go-lucky weekend surrounded by your nearest and dearest – and if the dearest happen to be anything but the nearest, in geographical terms, then hopefully they’re at least a phone call away☎️. Nattering,…

Wonderful Wobert

View this post on Instagram Highlight of my day yesterday? A lovely long chat with this funny fella on the left. Siblings often don’t get much attention in the relationships convos we see online, but for me, this handsome beast is the absolute bee’s knees, and since the loss of our lovely Mum last year, I really don’t think I would have made it through the messy quagmire of #grief if it wasn’t for him. Whilst there’s no way I can ever hope to adequately pay tribute to his big brotherly brilliance here in a measly-portioned IG caption, let it…

Ratatouille rebels

View this post on Instagram After yesterday’s waffley words about wobbles, weaknesses (a.k.a #procrastination) and #womenempowerment, today I’ll try to step back, slow down and break down le stuff into bite-sized, manageable pieces. Ya know, channeling my inner river by harnessing that inherent calm and flow, and all that jazz. In fact, the lovely Kim Palmer of @clementineappuk was kind enough to give me some tangible, actionable advice as to how to go about this (see last post for more info). As such, I really have no excuses left when it comes to putting off those all-important tasks & errands…

Lolloping to the finish line

View this post on Instagram Monday IG caption: “Whoop whoop, Monday lovers! Are we ready to go and kick some Monday-shaped booty and show the world who’s boss?” Cue, Tues IG caption: “Tuesday, you say? Only TUESDAY? As in, not even Hump Day? As in, still 3.5 days ‘til the weekend, Tuesday? Oh, right you are then…” (*shuffles back down to kitchen for umpteenth cup of overloaded coffee*). Today, I am tired. Plumb tuckered out, in fact. Having inadvertently burned the midnight oil last night by plotting, planning, and fretting – though mainly fretting, if I’m honest, about some potential…
