The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #4

Photo by Heather Ford on Unsplash I posted a few days ago about the importance of routine and how I was just starting to feel a little settled with my new routine of writing and working in the wine bar. Well Bozza swooped right in and put a stop to that one, didn't he? Up… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #4

Photo by Clay Banks on Unsplash I missed another week of posting last week - I know, but I've been cutting myself a bit of slack lately after an especially crazy few weeks. And I feel better for it! But somebody recently said to me "don't you blog anymore?" and it made me feel really… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #3

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #1

Photo by Mike Kenneally on Unsplash Before I start this post, I wanted to say that I've been humbled recently by the fact that people have actually messaged me to check in because they've noticed that I haven't posted a 5 Minute Coffee Corner or any other form of blog post in recent weeks. I… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #1

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #3

Photo by Liana Mikah on Unsplash If you read with me weekly, you'll know that a) I'm super late posting this week - oops! And b) that I finished my full-time job last Friday (11th September), to work towards a new career as a Freelance Copywriter (more on that journey in this post here).

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #2

Photo by Devin Avery on Unsplash Oh my god this week is chaos. It's my last week at work which has coincided with the start of term next week and a plethora of technical and logistical issues that I'm frantically trying to sort. My work for my writing job has ramped up this week too… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #2

Photo by Nolan Issac on Unsplash We are officially in September! I don't know about you, but the minute the 1st September arrived a few days ago, I suddenly felt Autumnal. For me, September symbolises the end of Summer, the start of Autumn and Winter and it is the beginning of the darker nights. Usually,… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #1

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!

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: August #3

Happy Wednesday - and welcome back to the 5 minute coffee corner. I am officially 30! I have had the best 30th birthday ever. I spent my actual birthday in the most beautiful place, a campsite at the bottom of a valley in Snowdonia National Park, on a lake surrounded by hills. Miraculously, the storms that were… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: August #3

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: August #2

I don't know about you but I'm surprised I'm even in one piece writing this and haven't melted. I feel horrific. I am somebody who loves heat - craves it in fact. I love the sun, love heatwaves, love when it's too hot to function, and I usually relish the fact that the climate is… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: August #2

August already - wow. We're coming to the end of 2020, a year I think many will be glad to see the back of. Things have been a little crazy around here. 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
