Find out what I've been up to, what I'm thinking, reviewing and generally how I'm failing at life and getting through those fails.

Mad Rush

I spend most of my days rushing from place to place, trying to respond to emails and texts and keeping up with social media. This would be acceptable if I wasn’t a single mum with no family close by to help working in a stressful job that should be a 9 to 5, but invariably …

Walk or Run

This week is National Walk to Work Week, but having got out of bed far too late to accomplish this I am feeling a bit guilty. Having typed up my bucket list on yesterday’s blog, I wrote that I wanted to run/walk a marathon before I kick the bucket. Everything is telling me to get …

Shoes for you?!

A friend of mine Elaine from Canvas Pretty asked me to take her place at the recent #shoesietuesday event held by Hotter Shoes. I must admit, whilst I am a shoe fanatic, I took a look at their website, and thought “I am not going to like these shoes” the first word I see plastered …

Am I destined to be alone and do I care?!

I have had a lot of boyfriends in my life, some that came and went quicker than I was able to change my pants! Others hang around long enough to hurt me and a few I even hurt myself. Most people go through breakups in their lives and they get over them. Some people are …
