LIFE, LOSS AND STAYING GRATEFUL

Hello and welcome to the second of my new regular Monday blog spots. If you are a follower of my blogging friend Toni, a.k.a This Mama Blogs, you may have seen that I wrote a guest post for her blog a while back. This, of course, I would recommend reading. The title of the post was ‘staying grateful in a busy world’. It reflected a personal journey of my own, very relevant to what I have to say today.

Hello and welcome to Blogmas Day 20! So, who agrees that Christmas is about loungewear? Anyone? We all like to look nice and spruce ourselves up for our Christmas celebrations but for those cosy evenings in with your hot chocolate and tub of Roses (or Quality Street! Or Heroes, or Celebrations, the list is now endless…) what could possibly feel better than soft and snuggly clothes that stretch as you scoff.

Happiness is… Relaxing. 10 Ways to Relax

Hello everyone and welcome to another instalment of my Happiness is… series. Stress is such a big part of our lives these days, with so many priorities and responsibilities and so relaxation can take a back seat. Even when people try to relax, they can feel lazy, guilty and/or selfish for taking time for themselves. If you are anything like me, you need a measure of both pressure and chill time, and with stress also being such a widespread health concern, we need to forget the negative thoughts about relaxing and accept that we need to achieve some balance.
