Shiny Happy People

Shiny Happy People

It is stifling in London. So hot that the heat seems to shimmer off the buildings and bounce back onto you.  Zero breeze. Even the pigeons have gone quiet. Taking the train into Waterloo is an oppressive experience. As if you are slowly being sealed in one of those airtight bags you put your winter [...]

Slow Sundays…

Slow Sundays…

I really struggle to sit still and relax. I'm constantly on the move, planning, scheming, tidying (I tidy a lot, it's so annoying) and generally faffing. I've been brought up to make the most of everyday so the idea of sitting and doing nothing is actually quite hard to deal with. Even now I'm blogging [...]

You could say I stepped into a little bit of a black hole during which time I didn't engage with social media, accept invitations or phone calls and just generally [...]

And Breathe…

And Breathe…

Some days the world is just too much. Especially when you live in a crazy busy city like London. Your mind is constantly bombarded with new information - trains coming and going, people pushing past you, new languages (I actually think English is the least spoken language in London), smells, signs, advertising, the sound of [...]
