2018: First Quarter Review

Was it only three months ago that I wrote down my 2018 intentions? Where has the time gone? I feel like I’ve blinked and missed the first three months of 2018, so much has happened and lots of it has been good. At the start of the year, like the year before, I split my […]

10 Signs Your Relationship Is Dead

Recently, I celebrated two years of being officially divorced. It made me smile but it also made me think about all the reasons why relationships fail, and exactly when I saw the warning signs because let’s be honest, they’re always there. In an ideal world, relationships would never end and everyone would fall in love […]

International Women’s Day 2018

I have written before about being a feminist because it’s something that is really important to me, and has been for a long time. As a woman, even though there has been huge changes in the lives of women, I think women’s rights have to still be at the top of our agenda. We have to […]

My 2018 Intentions

Happy New Year!! Slightly belated I know, but I have to admit, I wasn’t quite feeling myself at the very start of 2018. The thought of reflecting on the year gone by and setting goals for 2018 seemed like an impossible task. Now, I’ve done A LOT of self-care, including almost using up Lush Christmas […]

Kikki K Planner Review

Anyone who knows me in real-life has probably been waiting for this post, I probably talk about this planner more than my daughters. I have been obsessed with planners for the last 6 months and it has taken me that long and going through another two planners (one broke, one was too small) before becoming […]

How I Celebrated My Birthday

So, I’m now 34. Most definitely in my mid-thirties and I now can’t get away with ambiguously saying I’m early-thirties and rounding my age down to 30. If I’m honest, I was dreading my birthday as it was the first one without my mum. Fortunately family and friends rallied around, and although it wasn’t exactly […]

How to Have The Perfect Date Night

Yesterday was date night! Yes, on a week night. It felt like I was 18 again. Drinking a gin cocktail on a Tuesday evening seemed ridiculously indulgent for a full-time working mum of two. The fact I’m no longer a student meant that it was sadly only the one.  But it was a special occasion. […]

Summer Holiday Bucket List

One of the good things about being being a teacher is the holidays, although they aren’t quite what they seem. I will inevitable have to go to into work to do bits and bobs, plus lesson planning doesn’t do itself.  However, I will have 6 whole weeks without an alarm clock and 6 whole weeks […]
