On Smiling

Smiling is something that comes naturally to a human being. It’s a reflex that is within us from a very early age. When we were young most of us will have laughed and smiled for the majority of the day. Yet as we get older, we start to feel more and more self conscious of […]

On Babies (or my lack of)

For the last few weeks I haven’t been 100% if I was going to post this blog. I’ve re-written it twice already and still don’t know what the point of it is or what I want from posting this. I have just been feeling more and more like I need to get this off my […]

On Siblings

I recently had a discussion with husband about what it was like to have siblings. To be honest I had never really thought about it much before because I have never not had a sibling. Husband is an only child but I have a sister and four brothers. Not all from the same parents though […]

On Growing Up

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are” – E.E. Cummings   Well I really don’t know how many times over the past few months, yes months, I have written and re-written this post. Usually when writing a blog post I will have an idea in mind, take out one of my […]

On Borgue

This weekend I went to Borgue in Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway. It is my mother in laws birthday soon so her and I and a bunch of friends, 13 of us in total, went on a girls weekend away. I had never heard of Borgue before, despite the fact that it is only about an […]

On My Husky

Three years ago today my friend came home from work and told me and husband (who was my fiancé at the time) that a mutual friend of ours was looking to re-home her puppy. Now we had been discussing getting a dog in the previous few weeks but had decided that right at that point […]

On Being Grateful

On the Edge of Bedford

So I’m at the airport on route home from my annual trip back to Englandshire. Bedford to be precise. Sitting on the floor outside smiths, stuffing my face with various chicken sandwiches and trying to avoid the almost infuriating amount of different emotions welling up inside me. Otherwise I will be a nearly 24 year […]

On the Little Things

So just finished a nightshift and feel really crappy, tired, overly emotional and very short tempered, so to try and aid myself to feel better I’ve been trying to think of all the little things in life that make me happy. Especially after an awfully long 12 and a half hour shift. People always say […]

On Sunshine

  Well, where to start, other than, I love sunshine. When the weather is bright and sunny ( it doesn’t even have to be warm necessarily) the world just seems to be a better place. I woke up this morning with the worry of today being just the same a yesterday. A typical rainy dreary day in […]
