NoBloPoMo – failing to fulfill what I’d hoped

If you clicked on my NaBloPoMo link at the top of the page, you’d have probably been pretty disappointed to find what is residing there. 15 posts wasn’t what I’d hoped for, and, on day 28, I’m feeling less than positive about my failings. Turns out, it’s kinda hard to write a blog post every […]

Day 15 & 16 – the wedding weekend

Ok, so I’m cheating on my NaBloPoMo by combining what should have been two separate blog posts into one weekend feature. But to be fair, I’ve just spent the weekend celebrating my brother’s wedding to his beautiful new wife, so I hope I’ll be forgiven! The weekend was wonderful, filled with family, friends, laughter and […]

Day 14 – practise practise practise

It’s nearly my brother’s wedding and oh my gawddd I have to do a reading!! Luckily I had a presentation course earlier this week, but a reading at a wedding isn’t really the same as giving a client presentation. It’s a lot more close, a lot more meaningful… A lot more emotional. I’m so honoured […]

Day 13 – lazy nights in

The best hot chocolate? When your boyfriend makes it! Gotta love lazy nights in.

Day 12 – thoughts, all the thinking

Thought of the day: Making a personalised wedding present is much simpler in theory than in practise. Pictures after the wedding! XxxX

Day 11 – my day in a to do list:

Day 10 – what keeps me motivated

It’s bliss doing absolutely nothing. Just sitting in front of the tele with a cuppa watching a millionth episode of friends. Except when you’re ill, and can’t enjoy it at all. The past three days I’ve been wrapped in a blanket coughing and sniffling my way through boxes of tissues whilst gulping down cough syrup. […]

Day 9 – wedding gifts are a head scratcher

With less than a week until my dear brother gets hitched, I’ve been making last minute prep: practising my reading, trying out different ‘weddingy’ hairstyles, and preparing the wedding gift for the happy couple. Wedding gifts can be a head scratcher. Some couples have a wedding list, with presents for people to choose from to […]

Day 8 – this evil cold is my nemesis…

My nose has been red raw all day and it’s not even Red Nose Day. Been through 2 rolls of toilet paper blowing my snoz and my head feels like it’s full of cotton wool. And bees. Bees wrapped in cotton wool. Actually that sounds rather cute in a weird way…. Either way I’ve been […]

Day 7 – what the flip is a ‘hobby’?

I’m a very open person. Ask me a question, and I’ll answer it as honestly as I can. Yes, I can sometimes be evasive and yes, I can keep secrets, but in the main if there is no particular reason not to share, I will share. I suppose that’s why blogging is such a great […]
