Well, there we go. A second lockdown. Always fun. I accidentally rewrote most of the lyrics to "Hard-Knock Life" from Annie The Musical this morning, because I started singing 'it's the lockdown life for us' whilst messaging TTR, and then before I knew where I was...I'd come up with a few more lyrics: It's the … Continue reading Lockdown 2: The Sequel
Ironically, when I decided to 'revamp the lamp' in my living room, I imagined a fun little Saturday afternoon project that would take me an hour or two to complete. My entire week's holiday has been spent on this chuffing lamp. I could have just chucked the old lamp in the bin at the tip … Continue reading Living Lagom – Revamp The Lamp
Thrilled to be starting on my Lagom journey, I drafted my list of items and sent them off to my Lagom Leaders. They have now approved my list (yay!) and I'll be able to pick it up some time this week, so I thought I'd share with you all the fun things I decided to … Continue reading Swedish Sustainability Cults – Part 2
Back in September, I got an email from IKEA. It was inviting me to apply for their Live LAGOM (pronounced 'lar-goh-mm') project - a sustainability initiative designed, through workshops and working together, to help people find their way to a more sustainable life. I read through the information and thought, "Well that sounds fun!" and … Continue reading Swedish Sustainability Cults – Part 1
Well, it's been a week. A long, tiring, difficult week, that has culminated in my taking a mental health day from work, because. So...Fri-yay!!! I mean, I love my Dream Team, and I love my actual job, but there are some real buggers I interact with, and I ran out of patience on Tuesday afternoon … Continue reading Friday? Fri-yay!
Hello Gentle Readers. Apologies for the long silence and lack of posting. I have been moving house, contributing to bid-writing at work and dealing with some personal stuff. In all of that, the ability to post just slipped off my radar. But I woke up this morning and I thought, "Better get back on it, … Continue reading Whoops…I lost track of time.
The most exciting news of this week is that the incidents of new coronavirus cases in the UK has been falling, steadily, for the last two weeks. This is brilliant news, as, despite everyone's worst fears, it does look like the lockdown worked and the social distancing slowed infection rates. Hurray for lying on the … Continue reading Friday? Fri-yay!
I received a text from BigBro the other day. In capitals, it read “RESCUERS DOWN UNDER IS ON DISNEY+, WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!”. Now, taken out of context during the Black Lives Matter protests and coronavirus still being a huge threat, this seems in poor taste. However, my response was equally as excited: … Continue reading ‘The Rescuers Down Under’ is an overlooked Disney classic…… well, at least to my family, it is.
When I remember, I try to make Fridays my 'gratitude' posts. The things that have happened that, despite a global pandemic and our life upheaval, have brought me joy and made it pleasant to be around this week. But this week doesn't feel very much like a positive post is appropriate. It seems wrong to … Continue reading Friday? Fri-yeah whatever.
I've had three conversations today about weight gain during the RoRo lockdown. That's three more conversations than I'd want to have about weight gain, and two more than were helpful. Well, I say three conversations; I mean two conversations and a BBC article about weight gain. Plus Girl Housemate went on Slimming World last week … Continue reading Biscuit-based anaesthesia
