I’m putting off loads of stuff, in my work and personal lives. Some of it just because it isn’t urgent, it would just be nice to do. I often have too many ideas and then overwhelm myself with possibilities and find myself unable to make a decision. But there are […]


I’m finding the idea of an afterlife quite comforting at the moment. I haven’t believed in it for a very long time – certainly since primary school – and haven’t felt the need for it. When Dad died and lots of people said “he’s in a better place now” or […]


I wish I could go back in time 5 years. There are so many things that I wish I could have a second chance with. So many things I could’ve done better or prevented. Helping Dad more while he was ill. Spending more time with him. Making sure things were […]

5 years

I’ve been in my new job for just over 4 months and I feel like I’m not doing anything. I don’t think I even know what my job is. I’m trying to put together a work plan which will hopefully help, but in the meantime my self-esteem is in the […]


Blogger’s block. Work block. Dog walking block. Getting out of bed block. Farm work block. Cleaning block. Basically, I’m getting very little done.


A few days ago I was looking through online January sales for DVDs, and I wondered about how much more happy and fulfilled I feel when I add more material things to my life. Not much, if at all. And this reminded me of Robert Llewellyn buying nothing for a […]

Buy Nothing New for a Year

I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since I last did a post about resolutions. And FYI, the last lot didn’t go that well, apart from getting a Distinction in my Masters. So this year’s resolutions are: Clear the fields: I’m getting really fed up of all the mess taking […]

Resolutions 2016

168 hours in a week. 56 hours sleeping. 10 hours commuting. 43 hours in work. 14 hours walking dogs. 10 hours bathing, showering, doing hair, make up. 12 hours eating. 3 hours checking horses. Leaving 20 hours. I’ll admit, I thought I had more time left. But still, what do I do […]

Ok, so I’ve missed a few weeks… But to be honest, I’ve probably listened to the same guilty pleasures over and over in that time. I can’t wait until I get a new job: I’ll spend so much money on new music, it’ll be like the HMV sale on student […]

Playlist of the Week #5: Coachella – The Music

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “In the Summertime.” If it’s autumn or winter where you live, what are you most looking forward to doing next summer? If it’s spring or summer where you are, what has been the highlight of the season so far for you? Summer officially started 9 days […]

In the British Summertime

This week: a Glastonbury inspired playlist. I still have plenty to watch on the BBC website, but these are some of my favourites so far. I haven’t uploaded videos from the festival, but full sets can all be watched via the BBC link. Catfish & The Bottlemen – Kathleen I […]

Playlist of the Week #4: Inspired by Glastonbury

I haven’t listened to a whole lot of music this week, something I really should make a point of doing since I decided to start this regular post series! With that in mind, this week’s playlist is a rather diverse mix… Annie (Official Soundtrack) – It’s a Hard Knock Life […]

Playlist of the Week #3: As Seen on TV (and a Guilty Pleasure)

I’ve just rushed through the final series of Buffy and some of the episodes in the final series of Angel, because they leave Amazon Prime in a few days. I’m reminded about how much I liked the final series of Buffy, despite popular opinion. Yes the potential slayers were mostly […]

Angel and Buffy

I found something I actually wanted to watch on BBC4 this week! A documentary that wasn’t about religion or art: Punk Britannia. OK, so the programme is 3 years old, but I missed it first time around, so it was like it was new. Anyway, it was the second of […]

Playlist of the Week #2: Punk History (and a bit of Rock & Roll)

After looking back on an old post about music, I’ve decided to start a regular weekly post: my Playlist of the Week. I’ll post videos of 3 songs that have been in my head in the last week for one reason or another. Coolio – Rolling with the Homies Clueless […]
