They say time flies when you’re having fun, and it has! 4 years has gone so quick! From saying our Welsh goodbyes back in November 2018, to setting up our new life, to schools, to work and a global pandemic. It’s been a rollercoaster! But what is enough?
I’m 42 now (26 if anyone asks), and I’m in a point in my life where I’m happy. Just started a new job, which is challenging but which I’m enjoying. Kids are happy, hubby is happy, life is good, but I am always experiencing wanderlust.

Life is a fairy tale, right? Castles, rich men on horseback, free shoes, beautiful dresses and birds to do your cleaning. Ok, maybe not so much but dreams really do come true and happy ever after is totally achievable. And as for romance, well Australia stole my heart.
While I sit here tonight glass in hand in Tasmania, in a beautiful hotel overlooking the amazing city of Hobart, one of the world’s most southern cities on what is the last few hours of my thirties, I’m thinking thoughts of old. The age thing doesn’t bother me. I do wonder where the years have […]
When I was a teenager, I thought 40 was old, like really old! It’s apparently the big one, but is it really? I mean, what makes it big? Is it because we’re maybe half-way through the game? Because we’re supposed to be mature at this point with semi-grown up kids? Is it now that life […]
We all see and interpret things differently, it’s all about perspective. The lens through which we view the world shapes how we interpret it, so it can alter our reality from the truth and limit our living.
Other than the obvious variation of the weather from Oz to the UK and the carefree, laidback beach living lifestyle, there’s one thing that’s altered more than any amount of sun, sand or bikini time. Me.
Dear Life, I’d kinda hope by now I’m playing it right, that I know the rules of your game. There seems to be a lot of challenges and I’m not entirely sure I fully understand it yet; I couldn’t find the manual.
As human beings, we’re faced with choices every day, multiple times a day and it’s how we choose that can define us as a person. We may choose wrong, we may make mistakes, we may be unhappy but we have to own it and we have to take responsibility for our choices, like I have […]
We all have hopes and dreams in life, things we want to achieve, things we want to reach high for, but more often than not there’s always that one thing stopping us from achieving it, that one thing that stands in the way of us arriving at that place, that thing that holds us back, […]
Storytelling has been around for century’s, since cave men drew on the walls before the English language was a thing. We all love a good story and no matter what our life’s tale, we can all relate to a story, we all have emotions in common and can all remember once upon a time.
Loneliness is defined by the Collins English Dictionary as “the unhappiness that is felt by someone because they do not have any friends or do not have anyone to talk to”. Whilst I do feel there’s a bit more to it than that, you can be lonely in a crowd of friends, this is something that shouldn’t be […]
Some mornings are awesome! You’re awake early, get your run done in record time, no traffic on your route into the office, coffee is super hot and you’re ready to seize the day and rule the world. Other days, not so much.
