Like most, I spent last December engrossed in all things Christmas, while setting new shiny goals for 2020. I had high hopes for this year – big lofty goals that I honestly had no idea how I was going to make happen – just the unequivocal knowledge that I would. In the last hours of […]

35 Lessons In 35 Years

Chapter 35. A brand new page, in a brand new chapter. I can’t say that I’m happy to see 34 end; she was good to me – as was 33. In all honesty, so far the thirties are turning out to be my favourite. Not because they’ve necessarily been the easiest, but they have left […]
