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 [...]

My Happy Diary

I haven’t written a blog in quite some time now. Upon reflection, I think it’s because I haven’t felt ‘happy enough’ to write one. I’ve often thought that if I’m not zinging with happiness, I’d be doing an injustice to all you Hubbers. It’s only now, following the new year - [...]

Finding Your Flow

January has landed…in full force! It’s cold outside, seemingly permanently dark, and summer seems oh so far away. Many of us at this time of year are exhausted from the Christmas period, and it becomes difficult to see ourselves escaping from the repetitive cycle of work, eat and sleep…summer holidays are [...]

The Importance of Being Alone

A few weeks ago, I read an article in Lena Denham and Jenni Konner’s online magazine Lenny. The article was titled ‘Women Are Supposed to Give Until They Die’ (read here) and discussed how important alone time is for women as well as men. This got me thinking… I have gone [...]

Cellular Positivity

This week I learned some science! Elizabeth Blackburn, the Nobel laureate was my teacher and she taught me all about the part of our chromosomes named telomeres. Now, I must put a little disclaimer in here – unfortunately, my science lesson was not in person, and was actually learned through Elizabeth’s [...]
