Chocolate Memories

I haven’t made chocolate brownies for a long time. They fill me with mixed emotions these days. For those of you who are new to my blog, my best friend decided she’d had enough of this life when we were 28 years old, and left us. Her parting gift to her friends and family was…

Trust, Honesty & Lessons Learnt

Earlier this year, I shared some information with someone whom at the time, I thought I could trust. Someone I classed as a good friend. It turns out I was wrong on both accounts. As with so many things in life, I learnt the hard way. Not only did this make me question who I…

Is self care easier if you’re single?

A few weeks ago, I attended a friends hen party. The hen party was fun. But something was troubling me. I was staying in a hotel that night with another friend. While we were busy getting ready for the hen party, she started pouring her heart out to me. It appeared that her marriage was…

Wedding Season

It’s been a good few years since I last went to a wedding. They can be a bit like buses. You wait ages for one and then two come along at once! This spring, two of my closest friends are getting married to their respective partners. Whilst I have been looking forward to their weddings…

Change (Part 2)

In Change (Part 1), I wrote about the importance of living life. How life was too precious and too short to plod along, and how sometimes it takes a life changing event to give us the wake up call we so badly need. In Change (Part 2), I want to share with you, my readers,…

Friendship

I have been thinking a lot lately about friendship and what it means to me. I don’t have a large circle of friends. More pockets of friends whom I have met at different times in my life. There are those I have known and still meet up with from as far back as nursery, infant…

Change (Part 1)

If nothing else, the last 6 years have taught me how important it is to live for today. This doesn’t always seem possible of course, particularly when we are wrapped up in the mundane Mon-Fri regime of work, eat, sleep, repeat. There are also moments, when we become so consumed in the day to day…
