The big clear out.

There was very nearly not going to be a post this week. I couldn’t seem to formulate anything. I have a list of half ideas and a block of half started posts that haven’t gone any where. And that is ok, I know it is, just like I know it’s ok if I give myself…

Rediscovery

During this period of lock-down, it is more important than ever to look after our mental health; and of course this is different for each person.

What a month!

The longest month of the year has officially ended YAY! Officially we know there are 31 days but, oh my word, do they feel longer. Especially when you are crawling towards payday. And if I am honest, this January has felt more like the world has gone “it’s 2020! let’s get this year really started.”…
