Letting it be

Letting it be

Do you ever worry that we spend too much time wishing away time?

January-February has its challenges sure, there’s the post-Christmas blues, wintery weather and lack of daylight to contend with. It can be quite the testing start to the year so it's no shocker that people are constantly talking about how fed up they are with the weather and how they can't wait for Spring/Summer to arrive.

Looking forward to things isn’t a bad thing, I am the first to welcome spring blossom, sandals and iced lattes but by wishing the present away, however dark and dull it may see, are we once again failing to live in the moment?

Whose Top 9 Is It Anyway?

We're almost two weeks into the new year and those sluggish days between Christmas and New Year are sadly a distant memory. As well as allowing us to repeatedly reach for the Quality Street guilt-free, that end of year in-between time was perfect for a bit of reflection. It's no surprise then that various Top 9 posts popped into our Instagram feeds during those days.  

In case you haven't heard of it, Top 9 generates a collage of your nine most liked posts shared on Instagram. Almost a year old, I was curious to see how my 'blogger' Instagram account fared and what my top 9 would look like. Before generating, I went through my feed selecting my own favourites - either where I liked the finished image or remembered the story behind the post, also wondering how many, if any, featured in the collated Top 9. Any guesses on how many made the cut?

The 2018 Review

Gone blogging 2018 review

Righto, we're about to see 2018 off so I'm hurriedly jumping on the end of year bandwagon for a bit of reflection. Serious reflection may be a bit tough since the festive season (and all the food, drink and merriment that comes with it) has taken hold and I'm struggling to remember what day it is, but let's give it a go! Also making no excuses for why my monthly roundup stopped in October, I wanted to at least wrap up the year with a 2018 review.
