Getting back on track 

Throughout lockdown, I’ve not been great with my sugar consumption. In the past, I would have beaten myself up about it, felt guilty for having a ‘treat’, for eating ‘bad’ food. But the reality is, food is food. It is made to be enjoyed and in times like this, it is important to be kind…

What a day!

Trouble maker  Noun: a person who habitually causes difficulty or problems, especially by inciting others to defy those in authority. I started my day with a message saying “you are my queen and I worship the ground you walk on” for getting stuck into a project. I spent the middle of the day feeling like…

Seeing life from a different perspective
