Aims Accomplished – Aims Not Resolutions 2020

January may not have started off well, flu really is evil. I’ve ended the month on a high though and as D-Ream sang ‘things can only get better’.

Winter Warmers

The older I get, the less a fan of winter I become. It’s 4.30pm right now, and it’s dark outside. I feel like hibernating, I mostly do.

34 Things I’ve Learned In 34 Years

It’s my birthday today, I’m 34. As a teen I dreaded getting old, I grew out of that though. I now think of it as a privilege to age. Many people don’t get that chance. I thought getting old meant drinking tea all day, not knowing what song is number one, struggling with technology and… Continue reading 34 Things I’ve Learned In 34 Years
