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.
Tomorrow isn’t promised, we know that. We’ve read enough quotes and fridge magnets to remind us that we have to live like it’s our last day. The days go quick, the weeks are long and the years short, and it’s true what they say, life really does go by in the blink of an eye. […]
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.
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.
Followers of this blog will know that there’s been some big changes over the last few months. I moaned and groaned about my job for so long on here (apologies!) that last March we decided to do something about it and applied for the Australian Visa. Fast forward 10 months and life is great, we’re […]
Always being a career girl, then making the decision to quit the day job back in August, I’ve really enjoyed officially setting myself up as a ‘Freelance Marketing Specialist’ (love a good title!), having done it on the side of the paid job for a long time, but now that it’s my only source of […]
Moving to the other side of the world is something we always spoke of doing, something that was always on the living bucket list, that we’d wanted to do for quite some time, and 2018 saw that dream come true. Blue sky, sandy beaches, ocean waves but also, more opportunity to live and dream.
So it’s here. My last day of employment and the start of the exciting laptop-living freelance life. But as I sit here alone at 8.30am on my last day in the office, I can’t help to think what I’m leaving behind.
There are so many life clichés – Life is short | Live for today, not for tomorrow | Live every day like it’s your last | Dream like you’ll live forever, live like you’ll die today… But they are cliché for a reason, because they are true.
So work has been a little pants of late, no change to the status quo there, and Friday, I decided enough is enough. I do my job, and I do it very well, but could I do more if the shackles came off and the company allowed me to work my magic and make them […]
You know when that one ‘spam’ email lands in your inbox, that hasn’t been caught by the filter? The one that comes from a person’s full name which you don’t recognise and fear it’s either a stalker, or more likely, a virus? Well that happened to me over the weekend, but the subject line connected […]
Reminiscing back to 2012, finding my own little piece of the internet with a brand new Facebook page, it was great to re-connect with school friends and old colleagues alike, ones I’d not seen or spoke to for quite some time. Getting friend requests off people I could just about remember, posting up the best […]
