Plate Juggling & Prioritising

Life is hectic at present; I don’t often get the chance to sit and to write much of anything these days, apologies therefore if you may have found my blog to be a little bland of late. If I’m not busy working (which I’ve never been happier to do) then I’m either running around getting the kids or the house into shape, either that or chauffeuring one or the other child to or from their various after-school activities.

Don’t get me wrong, I much prefer being busy to feeling at a loose end; I am far happier when my mind is occupied than at rest.…

Who Knows What The Future Holds

It’s so unlike me to be away from the blog for so long, I cannot express how busy I have been over the past week, I simply haven’t had the time to do anything other than work, chores and to take care of the kids. Other than a thirty-minute window in which I chose to chill out with some tunes whilst mixing at my decks, I’ve literally not stopped.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving life at present and am very much enjoying my new role and the challenges which it presents, but due to the fact that my time is limited blogging has taken a back seat for the time being.…

Life Isn’t All Peaches And Cream

Life isn’t all peaches and cream, I’m pretty sure from the outside my life looks pretty perfect but let me assure you that under the surface there’s far more to it than meets the eye.

For a start I’d like to make it really clear that there aren’t many people who actually know me as in really know me. I may come across all bubbly and brash but in actual fact I’m super sensitive and am very easily wounded.

I wear my heart on my sleeve and despite banter behind the bar, whilst out and about or across the playground I am easily offended, easily upset and super sensitive to comments thrown in my general direction.…

Losing Track & Finding Myself

Do you ever stop and wonder who exactly you’ve become over the years? Life is a funny thing, just as nature would have it we are forever changing. This is all very well but there comes a time when I find myself stopping and wondering ‘who am I?’.

Who Am I?

I am the girl who stands out from the crowd as my head of bright red locks makes it near impossible to go unnoticed. I once tried dying my hair blond in the hope that I may be able to go about life without standing out like a sore thumb.…

What’s It All About?

I’ve ticked some serious boxes this weekend, I’ve managed to read and reply to the majority of my inbox, caught up with at least three hours of soaps, made a start on a job application, got through four washing loads, cleaned the fridge, made dinner, washed up, completed my tax returns, cleaned shoes, done a shopping run and put all the groceries away yet somehow there’s still jobs waiting to be done!

I’ve said sod it for now and sat down with a drink and the laptop whilst Paul has a shower following six hours of heavy-duty gardening and the kids go goggle eyed glued to their IPads.…
