Step back to move forward

I watched a new episode of my favourite TV series.  I was disappointed, so I watched one of the old episodes to console myself, cross that I’d recommended it to a handful of new friends who might now question my taste. I read a book review and thought, ‘This is it! This book will solve …

Going round in circles

One of my WhatsApp chats this week: ‘Do you feel like you’re going round and round in circles?’ ‘It’s as if I’m permanently forgetting something.’ Can you relate?

A Timely Reminder

The other day, I planted some daffodils (slightly late I know). I was in the shed and found them in a box. I’d bought them in the summer with the full intention of planting them in the garden… but I forgot.  The bag of daffodil bulbs was mangled, messy, and damp but they had started to …
