The earthy smell and pitter patter of rain makes me feel nostalgic. I had to pop to the post office earlier, and my walk involved cutting through the tree lined short cut to the main road. Although today's rainstorm had pretty much finished, droplets had collected in the trees and were slowly making their way… Continue reading Rainy Summer Days and Nostalgia / Writing Challenge Day 15
I'm a city gal at heart. I've known this for years, but it was brought home to me when Tom and I went for a walk on Saturday. We get the best of both worlds where we live, because we're only half an hour away from Manchester city centre, but also just a fifteen minute… Continue reading You can take the girl out of the city but… / Writing Challenge Day 14
The doorbell terrifies me. It's not that I have a phobia of doorbells themselves, but when the flat buzzer rings, it always gives me a fright. Ninety nine percent of the time it's just the postman... or the Asos person... or the Amazon guy... so when I'm not expecting a delivery and the buzzer lets… Continue reading Being scared of the doorbell & feeling like a pretend grown up / Writing Challenge Day 10

On the other hand, my mom's hair is fair and fine and she constantly compliments my hair… Continue reading Hat Hair / Writing Challenge Day 7
I was stuck on what to write about today for my writing challenge... I had a look on Pinterest for journalling prompts but nothing grabbed me, so of course I wrote a little something about my cats instead! I could gush about them for hours.
Yesterday, Tom and I visited Lyme Park. We don't have a car, and there aren't many National Trust properties that you can get to easily on public transport, but luckily, Lyme is only about an hour away on the train (with one or two changes) and is close to the train station at Disley. It… Continue reading A Sunny Saturday at Lyme Park / Writing Challenge Day 5
Emojis are the language of today. This thought struck me the other day and made me realise just how much the way we use and perceive language has changed since the birth of the social media and mobile phones. To cut a long story short, the power of emojis was brought home to me when… Continue reading The Power of Emojis / Writing Challenge Day 3
