Life Lately #17

So, this is actually the second time I’ve written this post! I had an absolute panic on Sunday night when I had a massive problem with my blog. I updated some plugins, which totally messed up the site, but when I tried to restore a back up it then appeared that I had somehow lost every single blog post I’d written… Read more »

Is it me, or does Christmas already feel like ages ago? I always find January to be such a weird month, with the excitement (and stress!) of Christmas quickly fading, as everything seems to go from being busy, busy, busy to just…blah. I did have a really nice Christmas though, and I actually got three days off work over the… Read more »

My New Year’s Resolutions 2018

Happy New Year everyone! So here we are: 2018! I always find the start of a new year a strange combination of slightly depressing, yet wonderfully hopeful. Yes, the festive season is over, and everything is going back to normal, but at the same time the year is stretching out ahead, and it feels as if anything could happen. Maybe… Read more »

I don’t want to start out this post by yelling, BUT HOW THE HELL IS IT LESS THAN THREE WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS ALREADY!? WHERE HAS ALL THE TIME GONE!? Christmas just always feels like one of those things that sneaks up on me: one minute it seems to be ages away, and then suddenly it’s a matter of weeks and… Read more »

Time literally seems to be flying by these days. I mean, how is it November already? October seems to have passed in a bit of a blur, but thankfully I’ve actually got some things to report this month! I started the month with a week off work, which was great, and I managed to do a few things: I met… Read more »

So the days are getting shorter, and there’s starting to be a faint chill in the air as Autumn creeps in. And as much as I love Autumn, I think it can make you feel a little gloomy when it’s pretty much pitch black outside by 6 o’clock at night, and you wake up in the morning to find it’s… Read more »

These days I genuinely seem to be struggling to think of things to write about in these updates, which is probably a sign I need to get out more… I say it every month, that hopefully next month I’ll get out and do more things, and then life happens and I find myself day after day getting home from work… Read more »

5 Signs That You’re A Stationery Addict

5 Signs That You’re A Stationery Addict

The other day I was looking for a note I had made in a notebook about the novel I’m currently writing. Should be easy enough, I thought. How wrong I was! Simply opening my desk drawer was quite a task, it was so rammed full of notebooks and diaries, and pens and random pads of sticky notes…and then when I… Read more »

August seemed like one of those months where literally all I did was go to work and come home, which kind of sucks. Especially as the weather has been so beautiful, and it really doesn’t feel like I’ve made the most of it. I haven’t done a single summery thing: not one trip to the beach or barbecue!
