Why you should try gratitude journalling
February 14, 2022
Have you heard of the Baader–Meinhof phenomenon? Or perhaps you’ve heard it called ‘Frequency bias’? Have you ever looked around for your new car; chosen a make and model you’re interested in, and then all of a sudden you see it everywhere? It’s the car in front of you in the traffic jam, and then you walk past two more as you walk across the car park to the Tescos entrance.

A slow January
January 31, 2022
I just made it to the New Year, and then I got very ill indeed. It was nothing more serious than a fluey cold, but oh my god, I don’t remember the last time I felt that ill!

The road to Stonehenge ~ A massive craft & art supplies haul ~ Visiting Wookey Hole Caves
November 30, 2022
Hi! Here's an acrylic and mixed media painting inspired by Stonehenge. I always film it when we pass along the A303 to visit family! I have a massive craft and art supplies haul to show you - I bought a big bundle of paint, crayons and all sorts from ebay and I can't wait to try everything! Also, my sister and her family came to stay and we had lots of fun visiting Wookey Hole Caves - a tourist attraction near us in Somerset. Lastly, I have a few clips of sewing a fairy dress as I wanted to make some alterations. I'm not very well at the moment - I have a horrible sore throat and feel rubbish, so I hope you don't mind the intro and outtro being voiceover - no amount of make-up would've helped the situation!
