What made the October favourites list?

There was, however, a few noteworthy favs making the list which I'm … Continue reading October Favourites | What I’m Diggin’ This Month
Admittedly, there were a few extra journal posts this week. One, because they are an easy way to share an update and document my life for myself, and two, they also fill in the spaces between the absolute grand, yet wonderful chaos that has been this week of October, and, blogtober! There was humility in … Continue reading What an incredible week, in life and the blog.
Sitting beside my new Himalayan rock salt lamp, my little girl Hazel in my lap, nearing 11pm at night, I was about to write a daily journal post. It then struck me, we are nearly 4 weeks into October and there are only a few days left. So I switched gears, back to you, in … Continue reading Thank you, for no reason, but you.
Dear Journal (and blogtober readers), Sleep, yeah, about that. A little out as expected. A special little someones birthday today; happy birthday 'Batman'. BBQ for dinner awaits.

Whatever is your fancy. Let's even throw in there having a baby, … Continue reading A friendly nudge for you #blogtober peeps

On Monday, 22nd October 2018, just shy of noon, little 'Everly Primrose' entered this big world. Shes is an absolute delight, beautiful, with … Continue reading I have someone for you to meet…
Dear Journal (and blogtober readers), Yesterday was a wonderful wrap up of week three of this month's challenge. I feel blessed. Today topped the cake above almost everything else. I'm exhausted. My head is pounding and I can't seem to shake the hiccups. But I couldn't go to sleep without dropping you a quick pen. … Continue reading Monday, 22nd October 2018
Life in general is throwing around all kinds of mixed emotions. Hang in there, some wonderful news coming soon for the true fans in our tribe. Despite a rollercoaster of a week (and the best hasn't even started yet), I managed to knock out a post each day. I won't let a day slip, I … Continue reading Holy moly, week three of #blogtober down! Here’s the Goss…
It's probably one of the only times I've ever lied, and really stuck to my story. Inspite of being questioned over and over, and the plausibility of my story being so far fetched, I still didn't waver. If I could make a guess, I'd say there were around 5 - 6 cubicals in that toilet, … Continue reading The broken toilet teaching writers a lesson.
