What is Meditation About Anyway?

Glad you asked!

Meditation is about connecting with your inner self. Think about it, how often do you just sit down and simply breathe?

How often do you clear your mind of all intrusive thoughts and focus on your surroundings? 

If you’re like most people, your answer will be: rarely.

Summer Holiday To Do List

The summer holidays officially started last Friday for me and Charlie. Just six weeks to go before he starts primary school! He is currently on holiday with his Dad for his fourth birthday - which I am absolutely devastated about - so I have a whole week to myself. I feel sick just thinking about it.

Diary Entry #21 | House-sitting & Volunteering

Last week Josh, Charlie and I moved into Josh's sisters house for a full seven days! Herself and her boyfriend were off on holiday for the week, but couldn't take their puppy with them, so asked us to dog/house sit for the week.

Budgeting to Zero | My First Attempt

Budgeting to zero is something I've been hearing about for a few months now, and I've never been completely convinced by it or fully understood how it works. However, when I was filling in my Budget Planner for June, I actually managed to budget to zero this time! I feel like it helped that I was listening to Tanya Michele's Cash Envelope system video at the time.

21 Books of 2021

I did it! I have already read 21 books this year and I'm so pleased with myself! I have actually read more Kindle books than physical books this year, and it's been a nice change. I have also been reading more genres! I tend to live on detective novels but it's been really nice to read other things.

Small Business Haul

Lately I have been trying really hard to support small businesses! It's always so tempting to go onto ASOS or Boohoo for their deals, but sometimes it's nice to shop small. I always send Josh links to some of my favourite small businesses when it's time to buy each other gifts.
