“Come to this wedding with me,” she said. “It’ll be fun.” she said. “You’ll be able to work most of the time and help us out with organising things when we need you.” She was wrong. I found myself perched on the windowsill on Monday afternoon, craning myself around at an impossible angle, trying to… Continue reading Out In The Wild
What? It's January already? Well where did 2017 go? I guess I spent lots of it drinking coffee or binge-watching The Crown and 13 Reasons Why on Netflix... But, you know how people always say, "time flies when you're having fun"? Turns out, they're not wrong. It's been a year of new friends and new… Continue reading 2017: A Year In Review
Oh, hi there! It's been a while since my last blog post! It's been a while since my last Instagram post too, but that's by the by. I've had a frantic few weeks, and in the run up to Christmas things are hardly likely to let up! My Etsy store has had a little flurry… Continue reading It’s Time…
Last week I went all romantic and whisked Lee away for a night in Paris as a half-birthday present. I was poorly for his actual birthday back in January so it was nice to get to celebrate properly with him! So yeah, 24 hours in Paris. Technically, it was 20 hours and 45 minutes, but… Continue reading 24 Hours in Paris
At the end of my last post I said I'd be posting next from the Austrian mountains. You won't have failed to notice that that did not happen. However, I'm very pleased to report that the Ski Trip 2017 was an all round success! I ended up not posting because I was so into the actual skiing that… Continue reading Silence is golden
Friday morning, 6.30am. Why am I awake? I don't know. Lee's awake too, doing some prep work before a meeting in a couple of hours time. We've got lots to do this afternoon: drop the cat off at my father-in-law's (it's still fun to say that), shop for super exciting things like gloves and socks,… Continue reading Making Space
Hi again! What's new? We've had another lovely week in the Maughan household, despite Storm Doris' best efforts yesterday. I hope all of you are safe and not too windswept... I've been thinking about writing this sort of post for a couple of months, but the last two weeks I've realised I probably should just… Continue reading Being selfish is okay!
Overall, this week has been pretty much amazing. Do you ever have those weeks? Where everything ticks past smoothly, and nothing frazzles you? This week, I passed my Level Six pole fitness exam (something I took for the first time over a year ago, so that was quite an achievement). I also billed another client (which… Continue reading Am I slow?
It's Friday morning and Lee's shot off to London bright and early. I've got an amazing day ahead of me. A nice, slow wake up, a walk in the snow to my favourite café, a small casual meeting for my Virtual Assistant business, an afternoon of blogging and knitting, and then a night out at… Continue reading Slow & Simple, Conscious & Intentional
Somehow it's February already, so lets recap. Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States and in my opinion - lol joke. Don't worry, this is not one of those blog posts. I saw a really well worded post on the Instagram page of a fellow Etsy seller a few days ago - Claireabellemakes… Continue reading Decluttering and Decompressing
