Sticking to your new years resolutions

February 3, 2016

  We are already a month in to 2016 and by now many of us will have made new years resolutions and failed them. Why are some new years resolutions so hard to keep? I’ve made a lot of new years resolutions over the years, some I have kept and some I have broken. Like most people my resolutions are around changes I want to make like getting fit, finding…

As you know a while ago I began writing about depression and how I am dealing with it and the strategies that I have been using to help myself when I begin feeling depressed. If you haven’t yet then you can find some of the articles under the category one in four. In many ways writing about it here and sharing my experiences is a cathartic experience. It helps to…


Liverpool day two.

January 27, 2016

We awoke on the second day in Liverpool to a very different scene to the day before. The sun was shining and even though the temperature was still in the single digits just seeing my old friend made the day vastly more enjoyable. The amount of available sunlight and my mood are both very closely linked. After a breakfast of local ham, eggs and stale hash browns in the hotel…


Liverpool Day 1.

January 26, 2016

Last week I took a couple of days away to visit Liverpool with a friend. It was a short trip away to break the boredom while I wait for work to start again. It was nice to get out of London but as soon as we arrived in Liverpool it started raining and given that most of what we planned to do was on foot my patience wore pretty thin….

Australia Day warm-up

January 25, 2016

Yesterday I joined a group of Aussies for an early Australia day BBQ and drinks. There is a lot about my country that I am and am not proud of and this time of year the talk kicks up about our treatment of Indigenous Australians, detention centres and other things that are not great about Australia. But when you’re travelling and away from home days like this take on a…


Photobomb. Get out of your bubble

January 16, 2016

I’ve been wanting to share more photos for a while so I figure why not start dropping more photobombs on the blog. If you’re no following me on Instagram yet then you should. I was stuck in the house all morning and I decided I needed to get out of the house. This shot felt perfect for how I was feeling. I had to get off my couch and out…


Twelve months later and London still feels new. The stages you go through when moving to a new city.

January 16, 2016

 I’ve spent twelve months in London so far. Six months last year and another six months this year. You might think that it was starting to feel familiar to me but it’s still a long way from feeling like home. It’s well known that I’m missing the weather, beaches and food back home but there are somethings about London that I do love. It’s taken me a while to warm…
