#Blogtober16 Day 4: A secret about me

October 4, 2016

This was a really tricky challenge for me today, as I feel I’m so open on my blog that I don’t really have any secrets from you lot! Apart from the obvious, like Little M’s name, but that is something that I have consciously decided to keep private. Not because it’s a big secret, but for her. I doubt many people actually read my blog…

#Blogtober2016 Day 3: If I won the lottery…

October 3, 2016

So, for day three of Blogtober I have been tasked with writing about what I’d do if I won the lottery. For arguments sake, let’s assume this is a whopping great big life changing amount of several million, rather than just a few hundred thousand (although that would be nice too; but it would change how I spent it). I’d start by paying off the…

#Blogtober2016 Day 2: An old photo of me

October 2, 2016

I don’t really have any old photographs of myself, especially in digital form. My brother kindly put this one on Facebook a few years ago to ‘celebrate’ my birthday. I’ve cropped him out (to protect his privacy, you understand!) so it’s just little old me. I’m not entirely sure when this was taken, but looking at the size of me it was probably at some…

Blogtober 2016

September 30, 2016

So, I talked earlier in the week about how I hadn’t blogged for a while and felt I’d lost my blogging mojo. Well, I think I’ve found something to help me to get back into it!

Another year older…

September 26, 2016

It’s my birthday today. I’ve used that as an excuse for that fact that I haven’t blogged today. But what’s my excuse for the past week?! I’ve lost my blogging mojo recently and I think it’s because I’ve generally been feeling a bit down. I’ve had a couple of topics I’ve wanted to blog about but I’ve felt afraid to write as I think I’d…
