Little Stories From Lockdown Life

A small collection of rambling thoughts, a few notes about feelings and a selection of little stories from the last nine weeks of lockdown life which, for some reason, I feel compelled to share.  Perhaps simply to document them as a memento of these strange times and maybe also partly so that they exist outside…

Little Loves: April 2020

April has quite possibly been one of the strangest, loveliest and most frustrating (in equal measures) months that I’ve ever experienced.

2019: My Year In Numbers

In 2017 I took a leaf out of Suzanne from Inside Outside and Beyond’s blog pages and started tracking my year in numbers, measuring the year according to all the things that are important to me and which I value the most: family time; love and connection; travel; creativity; helping others and personal challenges/growth.  I…
