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

30 by 30: How Did I Do?

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?

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: October #3

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).

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.

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #1

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!

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. 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

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
