As I sit here and mull over September as a month, there have been some definite highs and lows, both financial and personal. As my day job begins to get more pressured, I’m learning the hard way how to keep myself organised and get tasks done before they become overwhelming.   September marks the fourth …
How can it be nearly the end of September already?! Before we know it, it’ll be Christmas, then the new year and a whole new set of aims to work out! As some of you know, if you’ve read my previous post, I’ve been feeling a little bit down this week. Lots of pressure at …
I probably shouldn’t be telling you this, but as this is my blog, I’m going to write this anyway. This probably is not the most positive post in the world, but it’s the truth and if I can’t write it here, where can I?   I’ll be honest, I’m a bit overwhelmed by life right now. …

Oh my goodness me, this week has been insane. In a good way insane, but seriously, where does the time go?! The days have gone by so fast, in a blur of work and home, and I’m hoping the rest of the year does not go by this fast. We’ve seen family and friends this …
Following on from my previous post about 5 things that make me stressed, I thought I would do a post about how I combat stress and hopefully this might help other people as well.   5 easy ways to reduce stress: 1) Work out what does need completing and what can wait. When my to-do …
