Everyone has a happy place. A place that they can visit in their minds eye when the world seems bleak, when there is no light in the darkness, when all they want is for the sky to collapse on top of them. Sometimes, we visit our happy place when we ourselves are indeed happy. This… Continue reading Visiting my Happy Place
I realised yesterday, as I struggled to find a moment for myself, that I hadn't written a blog documenting my mental heath recently. And it's purely because there have been no spectacular highs and no crippling lows. I've been powering through. Which in it's own way, is a wonderful thing, I have not had to… Continue reading Powering Through
It's been a while, hasn't it? Well, actually, it isn't. I only missed one upload but it feels like I have not written to you, my lovely small community of readers, for quite some time. As I mentioned in Wednesday's blog (all that time ago) over the weekend I headed to the place I call… Continue reading Going Home
I don't totally know what to write a blog on today. I've had many ideas, and I've been reunited with my work colleagues and students over the past few days but I still don't know what to say. But I can tell you this, I am very glad to be back at school. I'm glad… Continue reading Chipper Dipper
Over the past few days, I've found myself thinking a lot about family. My biological family, my church family, my uni family - just family. I don't know why my brain has decided for this to be at the forefront of my mind but as I was eating dinner just now, I felt compelled to… Continue reading Blood Doesn’t Make You Family
I spend a lot of my time on buses. It's not because I spend my life travelling or because I particularly like buses: I don't drive. I just haven't got round to it yet. I wrote this on the notes section of my phone (and then typed up on my computer), because on this particular… Continue reading Kipping on the Floor
He right, and He is true. He is a faithful God. It might not seem it at times but He does not wish us harm. He loves us so much that He sent His only Son, our Brother to die for us. Having faith and trust in God is the most amazing thing because He doesn’t let you down.
Thursday 6th August Nothing much has happened today. I walked the dog, watched TV, stalked my social media when I was connected to the internet. Not much happened. I'm still quite sad and today I know why. It's because I miss people. I miss my friends who are in Aber, only half an hour away,… Continue reading The Ramblings of a Bored Dog Sitter | Day Six
Saturday 1st August 2015 This morning started early for me, early being I was up and dressed and feeding myself by 9am. On a Saturday, who does that? Anyway, I watched some TV and about 10am I decided it was time to take the dog for a walk, so I got on my coat and… Continue reading The Ramblings of an Anxious Dog Sitter | Day One
I’ve had a lot of spare time since the university term finished. Time to binge watch TV series on Netflix, edit the student mission videos, and to think. I have spent a lot of time thinking. I think at other times in the year but when you have no commitments, no obligations, you think more.
