Exploring Dissident Lines

This afternoon, I dropped eldest at pre-school, put youngest down to bed for his nap and headed into town. (Attention Social Services: Daddy works from home, obviously I don't leave my 2-year-old alone). I didn't manage to sort either of the jobs I'd intended to, so decided today wasn't my day and paid a visit... Continue Reading →

Review: The WellBeing Space

GIFTED | As you may remember if you read my very first couple of blog posts, 2019 is a new chapter for me. It’s all about making changes, being brave, forging a new path. And a focus on self, wellness and goals for the future have been a huge part of that. With that in... Continue Reading →
