How To Write A Book In A Year: Chapter Three.

Tip five: Don’t tell people about your story! I can’t remember where I read this one, but it made me stop and think, and go ‘oh.’ The reason it did this, is that it makes so much sense to me, it actually helped with my motivation tenfold. The theory behind this is, that if you…

Eggy Peggy Soldiers

Oh I’m so ashamed to admit it but I’m doing the whole ‘New Year new me’ thing, bugger it I do it every year, yes, yes maybe it is a bit sad and daft. Honestly I totally get the whole philosophy behind it being a crock of poo, but if it motivates me to do…

How to write a book in a year: chapter two

So here I am again, I have never been so tired in all my life! I think I’ve been unwell with something over the past few weeks because all I have been able to do is sleep. This obviously isn’t helping me with my goal of writing a book in year. I’ll leave in here,…

How to write a book in a year – chapter one

Tip one I’m going straight in to this one plan but don’t plan, I really need to do this and I will let you know how it pans out. I have found I get so bogged down with the planning stage that I never start actually writing a book, when I started to write this…

Parenthood – being successful with baby led weaning.

When I first heard the expression baby led weaning, I didn’t think too much of it. I’m not big on parenting fads, and I have never really taken parenting models and books very seriously; baby led weaning seemed to me something people took a bit too far. I still think that people do go a…

Oops a daisy

I’ve done it again! I’ve taken a hiatus. This really does not make me look too good does it! So over the past half a month I have an excuse… I went to Edinburgh for the weekend. Which has spun me out of creativity and motivation, going away just makes you feel so chilled out…

My daughter was leaning forward, drooling over the trolley handle (is that what the thing you hold on to when pushing your trolley…

Oh hi there!

So, again for the millionth plan Iv’e made with this blog, slowly its turning into something I feel like I want it to be. I have (if you haven’t noticed) had a small hiatus again, mainly because my anxiety is awful at the moment and we went on holiday to Crete (which would have been…

Motivate the goblin lady!

I have very poor excuses, I feel like the weather is taking its toll on me already and its only the very end of September! That and I also have started a new job, which although is nowhere near as physically demanding as my previous job, it is still quite different and is therefore taking…
