31/12/20 – New Year’s Eve!

Happy New Year everyone! It’s half past midnight here so we’re now in our jammies after seeing the new year in whilst on the phone to my mum which was lovely. It’s been a difficult year for everyone to say the least but there were many highs in my world still to be had, notContinue reading “31/12/20 – New Year’s Eve!”

25/12/20 – Merry Christmas everyone!

We have had such a lovely Christmas! It definitely wasn’t the norm as it was mine and Nic’s first Christmas spent together and my first Christmas away from Cardiff.

21/12/20 – Christmas prep!

I’ve got my Christmas nails ready to go! We managed to tidy all the house, I wrapped all my presents, and then had time for a little me time.

08/12/20 – Get ya baubles out

30/11/20 – Reading is wonderful

I’ve finished Harry Potter! I’m now spending the remainder of 2020 finishing off some of my heavier non-fiction books, then it’ll be a smattering of Christmas fictions to see me through to the new year. Reading is something that brings me so much joy. The sharing of ideas, stories and inspirations is a wonderful thingContinue reading “30/11/20 – Reading is wonderful”

16/11/20 – Forgotten self care

I’ve been letting things slip recently with looking after myself. So last night I took some time to file down and paint my nails in a fun pattern, then after dinner tonight I had a lush soak in the bath reading more Harry Potter. I feel so much better from it and I can’t recommendContinue reading “16/11/20 – Forgotten self care”
