{reading} the Loneliest Girl in the universe (affiliate) Which is so good! Full review in a few days when I’ve finished reading it. (The reviews on Amazon talk about a twist. I haven’t got to a twist. Will keep you posted.) {doing} one thing. My todo list is in a state of terminal overwhelm, so today I […]

The eyes have it

Sorry. I’ve had one of those days when there were too many words and ideas to be able to get focus on any of them. Which leaves me feeling kind of worn out and pathetic. So instead of chasing myself in circles, I’m going to go to bed and hope I wake up less cluttered […]

My top 5 movies

Post comtains affiliate links As part of the Blogtember challenge, today Katie, Hannah and I are talking movies. The suggestion was top 5 Disney titles, but I honestly couldn’t think of 5 films that I knew were Disney and I loved, so I’ve just gone for a generic top 5. Until the middle of last […]

Prisoner of Ice and Snow by Ruth Lauren

When 13-year-old Valor is sent to jail, she couldn’t be happier. Demidova’s prison for criminal children is exactly where she wants to be. Valor’s twin sister, Sasha, is serving a life sentence for stealing from the royal family, and Valor is going to help her escape…from the inside. Never mind that no one has escaped […]

Deschooling – a continual process

I can parrot off the law regarding education – something like a parent of a child of school age shall cause the child to receive a full time education, suitable to age, ability and aptitude. I can go further and say that a suitable education is one that fits a child for a life in […]

Slow Sunday

I woke up this morning stiff and full of pain. I should have done week 6 day 3 of couch to 5 k – there was no way that was happening. Instead it took me nearly two hours to stagger about hanging out two loads of washing with frequent rests, and by the time I’d […]

Saturday snippets 9 September 2017

{Practising} habits. Water, exercise, creativity. If I manage to cement these in for another week I’ll add something else – maybe that I clear the kitchen before internet? (This might mean I mainly clear it before bed, but that works too.) {Reading} actually I’ve stalled. I’ve been reading Lynda LaPlante Good Friday (amazon affiliate link […]

C25K take three?

I’m not sure how many times I’ve started and restarted running now. The first couple of times I devised my own routines and built up over time until I was regularly running 3 miles or occasionally further. But I’ve suffered a bunch of odd injuries and found it really hard to get going again. So […]

Art inspiration at The Works

This post contains affiliate links. New code today 18th September: TREAT20 up to 20% off orders over £10! I love The Works for educational resources for me and the kids. I buy Big’s refill pads here – my tip is to go for a pack of 6 for £4.99. I also buy the 30 page […]

September goals – blog/business, family, me.

As part of blogtember, today Hannah, Katie and I are all doing our September goals post. In the future, I hope that my monthly post will also be a recap of how I’ve gone on with the month before, but I’ve promised that sort of thing in the past and failed dismally, so no promises. If I do, they’ll be modelled after this on BetterNotStop, not least as that’s where I got the idea of doing a monthly goals post. I’ve also downloaded the free planning spreadsheet but haven’t got it filled in yet.
