Islander, A Shopping Trip, Parkrun and Autumn Everything – September’s Little Loves

It seems like forever since I shared my last little loves update on here. September was such a busy month, with lots of Autumnal adventure, and also plenty going on at home. I’ve been beavering away on the second draft of my novel and trying to stick to my weekday target of 500 words daily. Over…

A Little Revamp, Goals and How I Get Anything Done in the School Holidays

Over the last week or so I’ve been making a few changes to my website. If you’ve visited over the last couple of days hopefully you’ve noticed that it’s all looking a bit shiny and new!  After two years, I thought it was time to up my blogging game and go for something that looked a bit more…

The Four Pillars, A Musical Celebration, SuperSoul Conversations and The First Draft of a Book – #LittleLoves

June is very nearly at an end, and here in the North of Scotland we’re hurtling towards the school holidays. Well, when I say hurtling….dragging ourselves to the finish line at lunchtime on Friday may be a little closer to the mark 🙂 . The end of the summer term is always such a busy…

The Balance Plan, Barbecues, Once Upon a Time and The Royal Wedding – #LittleLoves

Ah, Little Loves I’ve missed you. It seems such a long time since I’ve shared some of my favourites on here. That said, I’ve rather enjoyed having more time to write about other things since the link up changed to monthly. Over the last few weeks I’ve had a chance to write about travel, opportunities and this…

On Opportunities and Comfort Zones

At the start of 2018, I set myself a word for the year ahead – that word was ‘balance’. After a year of poor health in 2017 I was determined to learn lessons about self-care, saying no to perfect and the balance between family life, ‘productivity’ and taking time to relax, recharge and rest. Making…

Daffodils, Reveal, Abba Fever and a Few Changes – #LittleLoves

It’s been a lovely week here in wellies and for most of the last few days the sun has been shining brightly. Aside from the odd downpour (and that moment of April madness – hailstones?!), the weather has been really very good. We had a lovely morning on Saturday exploring the daffodil gardens at Thrumster…

What Autoimmune Illness Really Feels Like

As March is Autoimmune Disease Awareness Month, I wanted to share my own experience of living with an autoimmune condition. As autoimmune conditions – an immune response which causes the body to attack itself – are by their nature often invisible, they can lead to misunderstanding, misconception, and sometimes disbelief. Many sufferers are confronted with the notion that their health complaints are somehow…

Birthday Celebrations, Mother’s Day, La La Land and Too Many Writing Projects #LittleLoves

It’s been a busy week here in the wellies household, and the last seven days have seen my eldest son’s birthday, postponed World Book Day celebrations, two parties and of course Mother’s Day. Add to the mix my writer’s group, the kids’ after school activities and the 101 other things all Mamas are familiar with and it’s fair…

Life Within Four Corners – February 2018

Don’t adjust your screens folks, that’s right, I’m still on February time here at Wellies on the School Run. Between writing posts on my latest Little Loves, a Sunday well spent at the beach and World Book Day last week I just didn’t get around to posting my favourite photos of the month. In future…

More Snow Days, How to Stop Time and Designated Survivor #LittleLoves

It’s been a snowy old week here in the North of Scotland, and like most of the rest of the country life here has been dominated by all things white. The kids had another two days off school last week and a schoolfriend here to keep them company. They were rather peeved to be going back to normal on Friday –…
