October {Loves}

October.

It really felt like just as we were settling into our groove with the new school year, along came half term to shake it all up again!

Not that I'm complaining, mind.

I think we were all ready for a break and it was so good not to have the mammoth school treks twice daily. We found a good balance between relaxing at home and being outdoors and I purposefully made sure to spend some extra quality time with Reuben.

So you think you can't run?

You can.

You absolutely can.

I spent 34 years believing I wasn't ableto run and here I am training for a marathon.

If I can do it, anybody can.

Because after all, the body achieves what the mind believes.

And if you tell yourself you CAN do it, then trust me you WILL.

Autumn {Style}

Ah, Autumn.  My most favourite season of them all.

Controversial, but I'm not the greatest fan of summer.  I get hot, bothered and I just never know what to wear.  Autumn is definitely my jam and from mid-September onwards you will find me tapping my feet impatiently waiting for the temperatures to drop a little (not too much, mind!) so I can finally pack away the vest tops and sandals and embrace tights, light knits and long sleeves instead.

To blog, or not to blog?

That is indeed the question.

For a long time starting my own blog seemed quite like a self-indulgent vanity project. Who would read it? Would I be consistent with it? Why would anybody care what I have to say?

I really am my own worst enemy.
