I turned 30 in August, and so am a little - OK, very - late in publishing this post. But as you'll know if you're a regular reader of my blog, these last few months have been nothing short of crazy! I've been meaning to reflect on the last year, and just how much of… Continue reading 30 by 30: How Did I Do?
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. I mean, really, it's not all that difficult to take that title given that not much has happened this year thanks to Corona, but it's still… Continue reading Why I Quit my Job in Lockdown

My baby sister started university this week, she moved away from Liverpool to Leeds. I've been even more reflective than usual as I contemplate her taking this huge step into adulthood, reminiscing about my own time at university and how it changed my life. She's the baby of the family - almost 11 years younger… Continue reading The Baby Grows Up

Many people have asked me whether I'll be blogging about my hen do, which unless you've been living in another galaxy, you'll know was at the start of May. I've only been banging on about it for 12 months, and can now confirm that it absolutely exceeded any expectations I could ever have held. I… Continue reading Hen Do Reflection
