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! I don't know what it is but why does life feel like it's on double speed since lockdown?! This… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: August #4

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.

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: July #4

I don't know what's going on lately but life feels as though it's going faster than I can keep up with. I even chose this week's artwork based on how I feel right now - like my brain is splattering out of my head like coffee overflowing from a cup (never one to be dramatic,… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: July #4

I am LATE! This week is the first time in this entire series that I haven't managed to post on time! Things have been feeling pretty chaotic this week and I've had my darling niece with me during the days whilst working from home. It's been wonderful spending time with her, but it's been full-on… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: July #3

A Year of Mindfulness – 13 – Red Lights

The task this week was based around travelling in public, and required me to pay attention to the occurrences where I was stopped at a red light - either in a car, bus, bike or on foot. I was to use this enforced pause to focus on my breathing, my surroundings and be in the… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 13 – Red Lights

Review

Review: Ricky Gervais’s ‘After Life’

It’s fairly well known just how much I love Ricky Gervais. Not only is he hilarious, caring, intelligent and authentic, but I have always admired his contribution to humanity in general. I wrote a blog post a few years back about ‘Derek’, after being so touched by the series as well as the character specifically.… Continue reading Review: Ricky Gervais’s ‘After Life’
