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). My… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: September #3

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

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

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!

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

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: August #1

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
