Well, this is not something I ever thought I’d be writing about. If you’d asked me 18 months ago about my adult swimming journey you would’ve received a very short answer: I can’t swim.

My goals for 2019
Why is it that a new year always makes us hopeful that things will be different, better, this year? The older I get the more 1 January just feels like any other day, but there’s still something about the calendar ticking over another year that makes just a small part of me feel that maybe something new is coming.
Things I’ve learnt in my first 30 years on earth (and things I’m still learning)
Today marks 30 years exactly since I came into the world. That’s 30 years of generally making my way in the world, and I don’t want to go all Kylie Jenner on you, but in that time I’ve realised some things. And I’m still realising some things.
Books I’ve read in 2018
Growing up I was such a bookworm. Reading is something that’s stayed with me, except that now I’m an adult I don’t have a lot of time for reading anymore.
Podcasts I’m loving right now
I’m going through a real podcasts phase at the moment. I find podcasts to be a really accessible format to digest content, and there are so many around on pretty much every topic. When a new episode of one of my favourites drops, putting in my headphones and hitting play really feels like sitting down for a chat with some old friends.
Why things are looking a little different around here
For anyone who’s visited my blog before, you’ll probably have noticed that it looks quite different. The changes to my blog go a lot deeper than just the visuals, though.
Camping survival guide for unhappy campers
Marriage is all about compromise. Which in my case means ‘going camping with your husband’s family at Easter’. Did I hate it as much as I expected to?
Flimsy excuses for a nine-month absence
I’m not going to pretend that anyone really cares about this blog enough to have missed its semi-regular updates (insert obligatory and unconvincing “oh but we have…definitely…so much…cry ourselves to sleep every night” from the audience), but I still feel the need to justify my nine-month absence.
Canada: my assessment of an entire nation
As you will know if your stalker diary is up to date, I have been in Canada for just over a week now and this experience more than qualifies me to make a complete and final assessment of this nation as a whole.
Oh, Canada, eh
I don’t know if you guys have heard of Canada, but it’s this country kinda near the USA but like a little bit more north. It’s famous for maple syrup, ice hockey and having a fox for a Prime Minister. His name is Justin Trudeau and he is just one of the reasons I am very excited to be travelling to Canada at the end of the year.
