The Weekly


I wanted to start a new style of post that was a little less structured and a little more chatty. Yes I’m being chatty to my keyboard and computer screen but I hope you join in and get commenting below! I was inspired by the blog tartanbrunette to set it out like this so head on over to her blog for more of the same!

So grab a coffee, sit back and let me tell you about life lately…


I felt quite overwhelmed by all of your responses about the conundrum I’ve found myself in when it comes to my future career. Although the post and my responses to your comments sound like I’ve made my mind up I still feel a little lost on the matter. I’ve started to not look forward to coming into work and worrying about what the new week will hold for me and wishing it was a year or two down the line. It’s never good to wish your life away. I’m 90% sure I’m going to go for it. I need to sit down, weigh up my options and quite rightly put a plan in place for the eventuality of a possible career change in the future. Thank you to all of you who took the time to read the post, comment, offer advice and most importantly shared their own experience and inspired me!

On another note I’m finding this sunnier warmer weather is doing wonders for my mood and I’m going to make it a priority to get outside more during the day and at weekends. Who doesn’t love the onset of spring!? It seems the blogging world is chockfull of celebrations for the arrival of the next season!


I’m now two and a half months into regular blogging and I’m enjoying it so much. Sometimes there are days where I have writers block or I struggle to come up with something I want to write about but so far I think I’ve only missed a couple of days.

I began this blog to share my journey into minimalism but like most new blogs it is slowly developing into other areas of my life too. I love joining in with #wonderfulwednesday and I’m enjoying getting more personal on here and connecting with such lovely people. The social side of blogging just isn’t celebrated enough in my opinion! I don’t quite understand why some bloggers have their comments section switched on but never reply to anyone’s comments but each to their own I suppose. For me personally reading and replying to comments is one of my favourite parts of blogging 🙂

I’m planning on doing more posts on money/spending habits, minimalism and taking and uploading more photos. I’m more than open to requests if there is anything you’d like me to blog about or share more of. Just comment your request below.

    Yeah. You hit it on the head. I think it is really tough to stay in one topic area for any length of time. You simply run out of material. I personally enjoy the variety of writing a blog affords me. Sometimes I’ll pursue a topic for a few postings like my four dimensions of life, but after that, who knows. Anyways, good to see you are spreading your wings a bit. This is your blog. Write about anything that excites or interests you. Your readership will feel it.
