A Little of Everything...


So, this is the first week where I am trying out posting on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It definitely seems to be positive in some respects. I have more time to do the other things for my blog -  replying to comments, having more presence on social media and generally improving and moving  it forward!

Today, however, there seems to be a negative - I thought having a little creative breathing space would be good... turns out, it isn't necessarily such a good thing. I think I am actually suffering from a sort of writers block... I have plenty to say but forming the post is just not happening! I'm going to let myself off the hook a little with creating a masterpiece and just share a little of everything:

Life:
I seem to be beginning a trend in my 2015: starting each month at the beach! On Sunday, we introduced the puppy to sand, sea and being allowed to roam free. It was definitely successful although, she was nearly chased off the beach by 3 large Pomeranian looking dogs in a 'new kid on the block fashion'... To that dog owner I would like to shake my fist at them and say "Where the hell were you!!!" A spec on the horizon, that's where they were!


I am excited to tell you that I will be starting a copy editing and proof reading course soon! I weirdly enjoy proof reading essays etc and I read relatively quickly. We will see if I can turn whatever this is into a potential job of sorts. I am not certain where it will realistically take me but I am aiming to do it freelance one day so I guess that's the top in this situation! With any luck my mistakes on here will start to leap out at me too!!

Stuff:
I spent alot of time playing with our new camera this weekend... I'm getting my head around it now I think... I did have a total fail moment where I wanted to focus on the background and not the foreground and ended up with a beautifully focused branch and a blurry Zoubi.

I treated myself to a bit of a haul yesterday... I am feeling VERY summery now that the sun has come out! A little ahead of the weather I know, the frosts have not yet gone  and I'm ready to swap my winter woollies for shorts and summer dresses! To feed the summery feel without getting hypothermia, I majorly binged on nail varnish! I went for the new Barry M Speedy quick dry nail varnish. I'm not sure how many I actually bought but the £3.99 price tag was too much of a lure to stop at one or two!

I also loved the idea of the ring on Ally's blog in her post Once In a While so I've got one of them on the way to me with my personalised quote! I didn't know Jewel Street  existed but now that I do, it may leave a substantial hole in my purse!

Oh dear... spend, spend, spend!

Again with the spending, I purchased Kelly Clarkson's new album 'Piece by Piece', and I am loving it!

Blog:
This post 'What would it take to make your life happier' on Hannah's blog really hits the spot for me today. Since the sun has begun to shine (as well as wanting to replace my winter woollies) I have become waaaaay more positive, I am trying to be happy with what I have and I am making a concerted effort to worry less! I am a great one for worrying and then worrying about worrying. I agree with her opinion on money and happiness - I am a firm believer that the pursuit of more and more money does not result in happiness. Nor that if it is actually achieved, it will have ANY impact on happiness at all!

Finally and on a much lighter note (sorry)... please check out my new 'About Me' page and let me know what you think! Thank you for bearing with the entirely random post in my hour(s)/day(s) of writers block!!

  2. Your puppy is SO SO SO cute! Hope summer reaches you soon! I'm hoping for winter down here in Cape Town (a fire has been raging in our area 5 days now and it's been above 40 degrees celsius)!
