We are getting ready to jingle with #Blogmas 2018

  You may have already seen that I failed miserably with taking part in #Blogtober18 the other month. It was my first go and whilst the excitement of getting involved had me on a complete bloggy high… for the first week at least.

7 strong quotes for when you need to be brave

    Sometimes, when the unexpected happens you realise that you have to put a significant amount of effort into being that much braver.   It’s hard.   Little tasks that you wouldn’t have thought twice about before suddenly feel like a big deal.
