Blogmas Day 10. Sorry – 11. You see, what had happened was… I will not list excuses. I will not list excuses. I will not list excuses. Ok, it’s out there. I missed a day. I set myself a writing challenge to blog every day of advent – 24 days – and I missed aContinue reading “Growth Mindset.”

It’s all gone a bit “woo”…
Blogmas Day 9. What a day! You know those days when you’re super busy and literally every second is accounted for but you feel satisfied at the end that it was a good, productive day? For me, they don’t come around often enough but when they do, they’re sweet. That said, it’s very close toContinue reading “It’s all gone a bit “woo”…”
Self-Help vs Help-Help
Blogmas Day 8 Self-help is all the rage. Heck, I showed you my reading list for 2021 and a large proportion of that could be categorised as ‘Self-Help’. But is it really helpful though? I won’t be with you long today but one of the lessons that has emerged from this year is the necessityContinue reading “Self-Help vs Help-Help”
Trust The Timing of Your Life.
Blogmas Day 7. First off, let me update you on my tea advent calendar. Today’s offering is delicious. I’m very much enjoying my evening ritual of an obnoxiously large mug of advent tea and writing this daily blog. This is not something I would have imagined even 2 weeks ago. Funny how things work out.Continue reading “Trust The Timing of Your Life.”
The Power of Vision
Blogmas Day 6. I have a deadline to meet. It’s this Wednesday and I could possibly have met the deadline tonight but I am a natural procrastinator*. When I was at Secondary school, I first came across the quote “If it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing would get done” and at the time nothingContinue reading “The Power of Vision”
1 Year Show Anniversary!
Day 5 Welcome to Sunday! That’s how I start most of my Sunday Breakfast shows. Today’s show was particularly special as it marks one whole year! When I think back and compare how I felt coming in for the show last December (on the 6th) and today, it’s night and day. Who needs sleep anyway?Continue reading “1 Year Show Anniversary!”
Lazy Book Club
Blogmas Day 4 Lazy Book Club was the intended title of my regular feature on my weekly Sunday Breakfast show on BBC Radio WM. I don’t know how the ‘lazy’ part dropped from the title but the intention of calling it that was because the majority of people don’t read a lot, despite motivational speakersContinue reading “Lazy Book Club”
Day 3 tea – Yeah, baby!
On my way to work this morning, I switched on the car radio to hear Jona Lewie’s “Stop The Cavalry” blaring out at at me. “What??!?” I thought. “It’s way too ear- ” Oh, actually no. It’s not too early for this. It’s the 3rd of December. This is a perfectly respectable time to hearContinue reading “Day 3 tea – Yeah, baby!”
“It’s your birthday, B****…”
Day 2 Before you ask, no, that’s not my usual birthday greeting (you can lower your eyebrows now). This specific greeting is for non other than the Princess of Pop*, Miss Britney Spears, who is 40 today. (Side note – how can she be 40 when I remember her bursting onto the scene as aContinue reading ““It’s your birthday, B****…””
Day 1 You’d be forgiven for forgetting who I am because, Woo!, it’s been a sweet minute since I was last on here, but let’s not dwell on that right now. I’m here and It’s good to be back. Don’t think that I was carefree, skipping through meadows or sipping Mai Tai’s during this longContinue reading “Blogmas 2021!”
