ABC and Me

It has been a challenging 2 weeks in my world. My health has faltered, my adorable Archie (my 5 month old Black Lab pup for those who don’t already know!) has been in hospital, and there have been so many goings on at work that I really wish were not going [...]

Moments with Mum

Disclaimer: To my mum who will be reading this, I promise that this blog includes genuine sentiment and is not a brand new bribing tactic as I’m sure you’re currently suspecting. Throughout my life I’ve often heard the saying ‘hindsight’s a beautiful thing’ and there’s no denying that it certainly is. [...]

Stress, Society and Self-Care

Happy Mental Health Awareness Week, Hubbers! To be honest, there was a huge amount I could have written about this week. I found out there had been three suicides in two weeks at my university and, having only graduated last year, as well as personally knowing students who have been struggling [...]

Being Kind for a Happier World

Last Friday I attended the Happier World Conference at the Museum of Happiness in Camden. Aside from a talk or two, this was my first proper happiness event and whilst there were lots of different aspects to the day, there was one message that stood out for me…BE KIND. Kindness is [...]

Travel: Going it Alone

I’ve been feeling a little bit down if I’m honest. I arrived home from India on Saturday morning and it has actually been a lot harder than I expected. The culture shock of coming straight back into London after six and a half weeks in India was pretty intense. Going from [...]

Colour me Happy

It’s Wednesday night and I’m sat at home looking around the room thinking maybe, after 4 years, it’s time for a fresh lick of paint. You see, when I renovated my house I decided to do the simple thing and paint everything the same colour – Natural Hessian. Ever since I’ve [...]

Help is at Hand

As I lay in the recovery room, oxygen, cannulas, medical staff a blur – after the initial surge of pain, lovely dose of morphine and then a rather snazzy inflatable hot blanket to stop the shivering, my initial reaction to all of this was – please can I see my mum, [...]

A Letter from India

I’m writing to you on a bus from Amritsar to Dharamsala. It’ll take about 6 hours, which believe it or not, is pretty short compared to some of the other journeys I have made here in India. So I thought I would take the opportunity to write a little something for [...]

For the Love of Food

I love food, and I love people… there is nothing better for me than sharing a meal with some friends, family and loved ones (often helped by a log fire and an exceptionally good cheese board!). So I was interested to read this week in one of my favourite publications, Positive [...]
