Yearly Wrap-Up 2017

Yearly Wrap-Up 2017

I can’t quite believe that we are already in 2018. Last year flew by for me, probably because I was very busy working, rebranding my business and taking care of my two-year-old. As a result, I didn’t have much time for reading or writing, so I’m afraid my poor blog was neglected. I plan to invest more time and energy in it this year as I do miss taking part in the blogging community and making time for myself to be creative.   Blogging and Reading Stats Books read: 11 (nowhere near my goal of 24 but at least an improvement on […]


My Top Ten Moments of 2017

My Top Ten Moments of 2017

I always love looking back on the year that’s gone and reflecting on all the positive things that have happened. 2017 wasn’t my best from a creative point of view, but I had some fantastic times with family and friends and those are the things that matter most to me. Time spent with loved ones is never wasted! Here are ten of my favourite moments from 2017: 1) Our holiday to Devon Our first holiday with just me, my husband and our little girl. We stayed in a great hotel with indoor and outdoor pools and had lots of fun […]

I’m Back! What Happened on Hiatus?

I’m Back! What Happened on Hiatus?

After a super long hiatus, I’m finally returning to blogging! My absence has largely been due to my maternity leave ending in September last year and finding it hard to juggle hobbies like blogging and reading alongside the demands of full-time work and looking after my daughter. I have really missed sharing my book reviews and artwork on Creative Therapy and engaging with my book blogging family. The time now feels right to get back into regular posting again, so stay tuned for the announcement of a new blogging schedule! So, what have I been up to all these months? […]

My Little Girl is Here!

My Little Girl is Here!

I’m afraid my blogging is going to be a bit sporadic for a while as I adjust to life with my newborn. Leona May was born on 29th December at 12:18pm, weighing 7lb 3oz. She is very demanding and I am struggling with sleep deprivation but she is totally worth it. We are all completely in love with her and excited about our new life together. As I get into a better routine I hope to be able to post regularly again, but it’s not so easy typing one-handed! I’d just like to thank all my readers for their support […]

Preparing for a special Christmas or New Year delivery

Preparing for a special Christmas or New Year delivery

Sorry I’ve been away for so long. November seemed to fly by in a whirl of parties, meals and appointments, and so far December is going just as quickly. My main excuse is that I’ve been busy preparing for our new arrival-our little one is due on December 23rd, so as I write this we only have a week to go (although I suspect he or she will carry on the family tradition of being nearly two weeks late).  My nesting instinct has definitely kicked in and I’ve been stockpiling supplies, washing clothes, packing my hospital bag and preparing the […]
