Planning My New Office Space – In Anticipation!

I’m super excited to share with you all that we’re now seriously looking at moving. After all the work we’ve done to make our current home perfect, we thought it was really clever to leave and go somewhere else that is not perfect. *rolls eyes* Why do we do it to ourselves?! Well, in our case there is method to our madness, though I sometimes  ...

How Can We Achieve a Positive Attitude to Body Image?

A few nights ago I was flicking through the TV channels. I was looking for something easy-watching, which wouldn’t take too much focus or investment, because my evenings are punctuated by my baby requiring a feed. (I’m sure she shouldn’t still be waking so frequently, but there it is.) I landed on a show about body image and decided it fit the  ...

My Positivity Project – March

It’s March now and we *should* be nudging Spring – yet the country has come to a grinding halt as we’re in the grip of a nationwide whiteout! Despite being pretty, the reality is that for many of us with families it’s actually a huge inconvenience: it can keep us away from work – if not because travel is impossible,  ...

My Positivity Project – February

It’s February – how did that happen?! I feel like I blinked, the holidays were gone – and so was an entire month. Usually January drags but this year it’s flown by for me, and it feels like the start of a new chapter: my tiny baby is not so tiny; in fact she’s crawling and very close to cruising, already pulling herself  ...

Positivity and The Power of Forgiveness

New year, new beginnings, right? I dare say you’ll be seeing lots of posts this week about resolutions and such, and perhaps pledging some of you own. Well, I won’t be doing that, at least not in the traditional sense. I’m not making SMART resolutions that I know I won’t stick to, and I urge you not to either –  ...

Stuck in a Cycle of Negativity? How to Be More Positive

This is an apology of sorts, for if I’ve been a whinge bag of late! It’s not been my intention and hopefully that’s not what’s come across; suffice to say my husband told me I’d had a run of moany posts, (cringe) which I’d really not realised till he pointed it out! Especially since in the past couple of  ...

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday #88

It’s that time again already – almost the weekend! Which for the majority of my readers means it’s very nearly time to not have a day off, and not have a lay in. *Smiles wryly* It’s also the time of the week I take a moment to muse on my fortuity and count my blessings (here’s why if you missed week #1). Here are a few more reasons I have been  ...
