Today I have been embroiled in self pity & woe – and it’s only midday. I know I am extremely fortunate & have no life altering issues. I just feel down. //giphy.com/embed/5cV8AHlDtNo64 I have been working a lot. 19 days in a row in fact. Long days, one of those days was 8am-1am without a break. ...

My sinuses are driving me crazy. Since I took 2 flights last Monday I have been suffering flu like symptoms: heavy face, stuffed ears, runny nose, sore throat, muscle aches & 100% resting bitch face. http://i.giphy.com/iHaDbbesKYT6M.gif I’ve also got my period for the first time in 6 months.

Spring clean… for my colon

20. May 2015 health, Travel 0
It’s that time of the year when people clear out their homes & do a thorough clean for the summer. As a nomad I have no home to spring clean. I don’t have enough belongings on me to do a big clear out. I still want that cleansed, revived feeling. Feeling like a snail carrying ...

Homeland, homeland! Here I come!

I have made the transition from seasonal nanny to full time, live in, nanny. I’m unconvinced whether this was my smartest move. http://i.giphy.com/3hSypvcGxzXR6.gif I’m not really a nanny.

I have a wee dog. He is beautiful & the absolute love of my life. Yes, send your pity my way! It breaks my heart when I can’t hold him close & bury my face into his fur. My medical condition – the itchy feet – ensures that there is always a lot of distance ...

The consumer in me awakens….

08. April 2015 home, Travel 0
Switzerland is pretty expensive for my budget & peace of mind – especially when one lives in an exclusive ski resort. Hence, during the ski season I totally curb my spending on anything which is not booze or other essentials. 5 months later & you can imagine how absolutely bored & fed up I am ...

Time to pack up my life

The upheaval is on the horizon. In the next week I shall be moving to Lausanne. Time to have high hopes of reinventing myself, my lifestyle & my future. This will all fade, of course, when daily life & work happens – but I live in hope. With every move I endeavour to find improvements ...
