Taking A Break From Blogging

It has been less than a month since I last blogged. Although, it feels like longer. I’ve also missed opportunities when I would have normally blogged – World Mental Health Day and Baby Loss Awareness Week. I didn’t intend to take a break from blogging. It just happened. Yet, I’m not surprised it occurred. Taking A Break From Blogging Disillusioned With Blogging I’ve been blogging for over five years and during those years I’ve had many highs and lows. There…

I’ve been a blogger for over five years now. During that time, I’ve read some amazing blogs written by people I now consider friends, and I guess, colleagues.

Goodbye 2015

Happy New Year, dear readers. I hope you all celebrated New Year's Eve in style. We had a very quiet night in.

It is now 2nd January 2016 and it is about time that I did a little review of 2015. 2015 was an odd year. It wasn't…

Happy birthday, dearest friend

blogging

Believe it or not, my blog is three years old. I wrote my first blog post on 23rd March 2012. In March 2012, I had just returned to work after 3 months off sick with depression. During my time off work, I began to see a Cognitive Behavioural therapist. She suggested that I start writing a blog as a form of therapy. When I am low, I struggle to remember the things in my life that bring me happiness.  I…

Santa blog hop

I am lucky enough to have some amazing blogger friends. Katie, from Life on Vista Street, is one of these fantastic women. Towards the end of October she asked a number of us if we wanted to be involved in a Santa blog hop or 'not-so-secret' Santa. We had a pretty rough time in October and the idea of some festive fun and frivolity sounded perfect.…
