Are you a sleep screw-up or ..?

June 11, 2021

Very often, I wake in the night. I’m not sure if it’s because of my age, my brain, my hormones or a heady mix of all of the above, but wake in the night I do. Once upon a time, I’d worry about the waking. I had read (and written about) the importance of a good night’s sleep. I’d lie there, way too comfy and cosy to be awake, and wonder what I was doing wrong, why I couldn’t succeed…

Friday Night Lights: What to watch, make, read, eat, buy + do this weekend

May 14, 2021

It’s been soooooo long since I wrote a Friday Night Lights, hasn’t it? Today seemed like a brilliant day to bring it back. Things have been such a lovely muddle since I moved but I am finally starting to feel a bit more settled and (hopefully) things are slowing down. You KNOW how much I like the slow life, perhaps? That’s the place I thrive in, write in, make in, potter in and generally feel the best in. Please send…

My favourite podcast is a delightful newbie!

April 14, 2021

Dear gosh. Thank you, dear reader, for not forgetting all about me. Life has been so busy with the move and various peaky days and then Easter and then my new book coming out. I have hardly had a moment to write here. This week, however, things are looking quieter. Only three interviews (!) and all my uni assessments are done (for now!) So let’s get on with it and talk … podcasts! (I accidentally wrote podcat there at first…

The one about advice during sad times …

March 29, 2021

A little note for people who are enduring a rough patch: The advice. Land sakes. It will roll in like some freakishly giant wave, with you a tiny person clinging to a life preserver, ill equipped for the conversation that lies ahead and even more ill equipped for the sneaky whiplash this chat will give you. When someone is in trouble, people get distressed and they want to help. It’s brilliant. What’s not brilliant is that difficult life situations are…
