‘Veganuary’

OK so before I start I should clear something up – the title may be slightly misleading! I am now just over half way through my complete meat-free month, which admittedly started out as ‘Veganuary’ but was ruined on January 1st, when I ate some eggs.

New Year’s Eve

New Year’s eve is my absolute favourite day of the year. I love having the chance to reflect on another year gone by. I love the prospect of a fresh start, a chance to set new intentions and the opportunity to make a real go of them. Most of all I love the new chance […]

‘Tis the Season to be Jolly

Regardless of the fact that I seem to find myself uncharacteristically un-festive this year, I do love Christmas. I love the season of giving and gratitude, love and reflection. I love spending time with loved ones and being grateful for our health and happiness, and the ability to spend time all together. But this year, […]

Is it difficult to be kind?

Another throwback post, included in this blog because a more recent blog (soon to follow!) will debate the same thing again, 4 years on! Twice recently, I have wanted to do something kind for somebody but have stopped myself for fear of something that I can’t quite place. The first occasion was a few days […]

Does this sort of thing happen to everyone?

Original post on my old blog was 12 January 2014! An informal blog post that described an odd week I had. This week has been pretty interesting. So interesting that I have to share it as I genuinely feel like this sort of thing only happens to me and I’d like some reassurance! Firstly, those […]
