The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: August #4

Photo by BRUNO EMMANUELLE on Unsplash You know, when I title these 5 Minute Coffee Corner Series posts I recoil in horror at just how quick time is going. We're on week 4 of August already!

Why I Quit my Job in Lockdown

I figured that given that I like to label my blog as a 'life blog', I should record the most important thing to happen in my life this year.

Happy Wednesday - and welcome back to the 5 minute coffee corner. I am officially 30! I have had the best 30th birthday ever.

Lockdown measures were gradually easing before Bozza decided to give everybody 20 minutes' notice again on Thursday to stop seeing their family and… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: August #1

A Year of Mindfulness – 26 – Nature

Nature is kind of my jam (bonus points if you get the reference!), so I physically rejoiced when I picked this week's card out of the jar. I love nature and being outside in it, so I knew this I'd love this week's challenge. This week, I was supposed to go outside every day and pick… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 26 – Nature
