Current Status: On A Sunday Afternoon

Still keeping a low profile, and feeling emotional this week however I’ve had a good weekend so I’m grateful for that! Thought I would share happenings / current life status below, Listening to The Life of Pablo on repeat. There aren’t any “love” songs on there, so you don’t have to worry about any Adele induced emotions or inspired actions, which generally means no crying (YAY). Favourite song: Fade. Feeling proud of myself for going to the Gym. Twice this week (baby steps my friend). After wanting to achieve the perfect “summer body” since I was 16, figured why not get ahead of next year by starting now! Ask me next week if I’m still this excited by it because my non abs still hurt from a class I did about 3 days ago. Thinking about what my morning routine could be, but looking for one that won’t feel like one because once it does, it’s easy give up. So far mine resembles: wake up, get ready for work, walk dog, cuddles dog, feed dog, feel …

Life Update (With A Side of Jet Lag)

Hello! Hello! Today I wanted to share what’s kept me away from here, beginning with the news that I am no longer in Japan and finally back home in London. HURRAH but first lets go back to my last days in Japan and the ridiculousness that took place. Forgive my ramblings I wrote this SUPER jet lagged. Goodbye (for now) My Loves … During my last week and a half I became part owner of these two. How did this happen? I went to get my dog his vet certificate for travel and bumped into a distressed lady and three kittens in a box, by the way this is the second time I have met a lady with a box of stray kittens at the vets. She stroke up a conversation with me as the only other English speaker and we bonded over animals.I found out later that she was a flight attendant and due to leave that very same day, so she desperately wanted someone i.e the vets to look after them. After a …

Reflection: May

Hello! Whereas April was all about becoming a better listener, this month was about working on my to do list. The plus side, it’s allowed me time to sort out some important things, but on the downside I’ve been feeling uninspired to do much else. This is the first post I’ve done in 9 days! That’s the longest I’ve gone without saying a word or sharing photos on here. Despite the silence bugging me after just a few days, I couldn’t bring myself to post anything as part of me knew that if I had, I would’ve instantly regretted it and you would be able to smell the desperation. So why the silence? As I’ve written before I am currently in the middle of tying up loose ends in Japan // getting my dog ready for travel // setting up a place to live in London // setting up work in London and generally trying not to collapse under the stress of it all. I knew the whole process would be difficult BUT I underestimated …

Contemplation, Week 10

Hello! Welcome to week 10 of Contemplation, where Desley from musings of a frequent flying scientist, chooses a prompt from her Kikki.K A Sentence a Day Journal and invites us to share our response. * my post from Week 9, here * Today’s prompt: How has a pet impacted your life? I would say my dog has had a huge impact on my life. His taught me many things in such a short space of time! Some of which include patience, unconditional love, and to stop to enjoy the simple things. Before I got him I wasn’t known for my patience, and I know it’s still a work in progress BUT my dog has definitely been a constant reminder for me to continue to practice being patient. His also taught me what unconditional love really means. He shows me this every day, even if I’m miserable where I feel like everything sucks, he still shows me love and doesn’t judge me for having one of those days. Something else he has taught me from day one, has …

Heart Day! …

Oh sweet Valentine’s day, you have no idea what kind of trouble you can cause! Half of us spend this time of year rolling our eyes so far back its a surprise we don’t fall over, at the just the mention of the day. The other half, are busy trying to guess what xx got them or how they can’t wait to see xx face when they show them what they’ve brought/made. Although I’m not a big advocate for v-day, I am a huge sucker for LOVE and anything that encourages to remember and be grateful for those we hold dear to us. BUT as with everything else, I haven’t made any concrete plans and I’m aware that the day is fast approaching. SO if you’re in the same boat, grab your beverage of choice and have a look at the list below! I wanted to feature links with ideas that cater to everyone in your life (yes even pets) whom you’d like to shower with extra love and appreciation. Lovley links: Cards! Cards! Cards! …
