Adult friendships and finding your tribe

I’ve spoken previously about friendships, introversion and about how I sometimes struggle with finding the confidence to approach people and start friendships. The post in question I wrote back in 2016 when I was really struggling with not feeling like I belonged. Fast forward two years and I’m in a much better much happier place. So what’s changed? I think overall I’ve just become happier in myself. I’ve struggled over the past few years with issues with, self-confidence and generally not feeling comfortable with my body. This can have a huge effect on lots of different things. In the past, I’ve…

How to make a rented house feel like a home [AD]

If you’ve been reading along for a while you might know we moved into our own rented flat in February 2016. If you’ve ever lived in a rented place you’ll know how difficult it can be to really make it feel like your own space. Both Lee and I have previously rented mouldy student digs,  so we were both excited to move into a flat that was in a much better condition.

Goodbye 2017: The Year Ahead

We’ve now said goodbye to 2017, and what a year it’s been.

Aside from all the horrible occurrences, we’ve suffered from over the year, on a more personal level 2017 has been a year I’ve enjoyed quite a lot.

FINDING THE BALANCE: HOW I’VE STRUGGLED WITH A NEW ROUTINE

Hey, it’s me again. Firstly I must apologise for how quiet I’ve been on here the past few weeks. So much for a big productive blog launch eh? I’ve been a little absence of late, both on here and over on my social media. To be honest I’ve really been struggling with finding the balance.The fact winter is well and truly here hasn’t helped much with that either. It’s dark by 4.30pm, its grey and wet outside and after a day at work all I want to do is curl up under a blanket with a cup of tea. For…
