30 Day BC – Day 21 : The Book That Made You Look At Life In A Different Way

Tuesdays With Morrie helped me to be more tolerant, I think. The Diving Bell & The Butterflymade me more grateful for the little things we take for granted. (Cliché, but true!).  The Raw Shark Texts, The Unbearable Lightness of Being  and The End Of Mr. Y opened my mind more to science and philosophy, always welcome […]

It’s My Birthday

I’m in Portugal right now so I’ve scheduled this to run whilst we’re away. Hopefully we’re enjoying it and I’m not too sunburnt. It’s my birthday today, huzzah! I always feel odd about my birthday, it’s not something I really look forward to. When I was a kid it was a reason for my mum to […]

Introducing…

A few of my friend have started up some new blogs recently and I’ve discovered some new-to-me blogs that have been around for a while so I thought I’d give you a heads up in case you fancied something new to read. These all, obviously, come highly recommended 😉 First up, Ellie (or Patchworkbunny as she’s more usually […]

30 Day BC – Day 20 : The Saddest Or Most Emotive Book You Have Read

The Time Traveller’s Wife definitely comes under this category. I’m pretty sure I’ve cried every time I’ve read it, because it’s full of emotion and I’m a complete sucker for a love story. (A lot of my favourite books are coming under so many of these categories that I feel like I’m repeating myself. Clearly I need […]

The Life List

I love to live my life via lists. Paper lists, to do lists, notebooks with scribbled instructions. I have post it notes covered in bullet pointed items and enough apps on my phone to organise my entire life. I like lists. So it’s no big surprise, really, that I jumped into the Life List idea […]

Grace In Big Things

I’m all for the Grace In Small Things – those little moments that keep you going. A beautifully sunny morning, a letter in the post or a perfectly ripe banana. It’s good to acknowledge those little things that make you happy, good to look for them in the fog of 9-5, Monday to Friday living. […]
