    adulting things I suck at

    The title of this post is so juvenile but also so suitable for what I’m about to say. Sometimes, when the dishes are piled up in the sink, the washing basket is full and it’s the last week of the month and the cupboards are looking bare, I feel like stomping my feet and going to sulk in my room because adulting is hard. I learnt about Close Corporations and who did what in 1802 at school but I never did learn how to get it right as an adult. How to manage my time so that I have enough to do everything that needs to be done and pay…

    March in Review

    This is a bit late considering we are already past the first week of April but I feel like I can’t let the team down by not doing my month in review so here goes. The year has sort of run away with me and even though I feel like I have achieved a lot so far, there is still so much more I want to do. KERRY TAKES HONG KONG You know this already but there is so much more to be said about it. It was exhausting and the most stressful trip I have been on for work reasons, but it was a good trip for personal reasons.…

    February in review

    I don’t even know where to start this post because I had such a positive start to the year and I thought the tone had been set but that was ignorant wasn’t it? Because realistically life is never smooth sailing. February was by far one of the worst months I have ever had and I am glad to see the end of it, I am also hoping by some chance that I will be seeing the end of all February’s problems (still ignorant?) Anyway, let’s review February shall we – spoiler alert, out of five stars it gets minus zero. In February 2018… MY DADS HEALTH TOOK A DIVE I…

    Just be kind, dammit

    As I write this I have so much going on in my mind that it feels like I can’t even think straight. The last two weeks have been so tough on me mentally. At the end of each day I have felt like I just couldn’t carry on. I have been overwhelmed, sick with worry and stress and overloaded with tasks that have seemed impossible. The point of this is not to seek sympathy and it is not to tell you that my life is worse than yours, because I don’t know, I don’t know if my struggles are bigger or smaller than yours, I don’t know what you are…

    Screen shopping – Feb finds at Donna

    I spend so, so, SO much time browsing online clothing stores that if you asked me where to get something I would be able to tell you straight away and even be able to tell you how much it is. You could say I’m a shopping expert if there is such a thing. So, I thought I would turn it into something useful – screen shopping (it’s like window shopping but online). I will share my findings with you, give you ideas on how to wear them and where to get what bargains. It might inspire you to experiment with your style, help you find what you have been looking for…
