2020 Goals Update

The first few months of the year started off well for me and I was feeling pretty positive about the year ahead. I was luckily enough to see one of my favourite bands – Slipknot – in concert at the end of January. And enjoyed a bunch of day trips in February and March too, including Crocodiles of the World and a ride on the Cheltenham ferris wheel – which I’d highly recommend! But then the pandemic hit and things went from positive to uncertain pretty rapidly. To be honest, I almost decided not to post my 2020 goals update, […]

Travel Experiences You Can Have at Home

I miss travelling. Not only travel to far off places but also being able to explore my local area. Whether that’s popping to the lakes for some archery or visiting one of our many museums. And I imagine a lot of you are in the same boat at the moment (no pun intended). But while you’re busy dreaming about all the places you could be visiting. Like the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the beautiful bridges of Prague. You might be missing what’s right in front of you and all the travel experiences you can have at home. From reliving […]

Small Acts of Kindness You Can Try at Home

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. An annual event hosted by the Mental Health Foundation whose aim is to raise awareness of mental health issues by promoting conversation and breaking down the stigma. And this year is all about kindness, which seems fitting given the current world we’re living in. But while you may not be able to visit your friends and family at the moment, there are still so many small acts of kindness you can try at home to show them you care. Because I think it’s safe to say, the coronavirus has affected us all in […]

My Birthday Celebrations in Lockdown

My “lockdown birthday” was last week – May 7th to be exact – and as I’m writing this I’m certainly feeling the post-birthday blues. And I’m quite sad it’s over for another year. Usually, we go out for the day, or to one of my favourite restaurants, but it was nice to have a relaxing day at home instead. There were also some unexpected surprises (all from a safe distance, of course) from a few of my loved ones. Celebrating my birthday in lockdown wasn’t something I was expecting but it turned out to be one of the best. Aaron […]

Have You Ever? – Gaming Edition

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the party game ‘Never Have I Ever?’, right? If not, it’s a drinking game, in which the first person says something they have never done, and anyone who has done that thing takes a drink. Well, Michelle at GeekGirl has created a video game twist on this classic drinking game. Where all the questions are related to gaming. Since Aaron and I often game together  – even more so recently – I thought it would be fun to hear his answers as well, like we did for ‘The Gamer Tag‘ and ‘The Pokemon Tag‘. […]
