Confessions of an accumulator

24. August 2015 home, house, lifestyle, Travel 0
I have been listening to The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. It has been positively refreshing & is a new perspective for me on possessions & style of living. I feel like this book was written with me in mind. My room is jam packed with items of clothing, books, make up, accessories, etc, ...

Learning French

With less than 5 weeks to go in Switzerland I thought: ‘Hey, you should learn to speak French!’ I’m kidding, I hoped to sooner but with inconsistent work hours & trips away it was difficult to organise. Finally I seized my opportunity & booked a trial class for a level A1 course. I got the little one to ...

5 weeks left in Switzerland

19. August 2015 Travel 2
Switzerland, you beauty! Incredible landscapes, high quality of life rating, med climate. If only I loved Swiss wine & fondue didn’t make me feel ill – I think this could be the place for me. That & a year round ski season social life. I am missing my apres ski life during the summer. So, ...

Hello again, hello

Sorry for the unintentional hiatus folks. I guess life got in the way. My previous post was around 7 weeks ago & rather depressing – I can assure you that I have not been in the throes of a breakdown since then! Honest. I have just been working, breathing, making poor choices, laughing, sleeping & surviving. Same as ...

Sugar free me!

I have been reading up about sugar, food processing, chemicals included in processed food & the harsh reality that we have no idea what we are consuming. It has been a rude awakening for me as I have always trusted food labels claiming their contents are ‘good’ for me. I feel like this industry has ...

I was feeling shit. I was planning to turn to retail therapy to seek solace. I did. Flights to Barcelona booked! What better pick me up than to run from your problems?? Fleeing the country for freedom brings me great inner peace. It was only a brief trip, 3 nights, but it was all I ...

New Zealand, I’m looking at you

I’m looking at you & I’m coming to get you! Since I was 15 & my friends were all talking about how they wanted to go to Australia (none of them have been & they have all spent their lives in our home county), I have always pulled away from the crowd & vowed to ...
