2023 *No* Year’s Resolutions | Setting Goals for the New Year | Rosie Abigail

I’m talking crash diets, immense workout schedules, unreachable…

Ooof September has been a wild month and not just in terms of British history and politics.  I’ve been in and out of doctor’s surgeries and hospitals, working on the start of a new academic year at my IRL job, and dealing with a leaking roof, a hole in the ceiling, and an out-of-bounds DIY…

The Books That Made Me | National Book Lover’s Day 2022 | Rosie Abigail

Does anyone else struggle to read in everyday life? For months now, I’ve been struggling to pick up a book, despite having a TBR list the length of the UK. However, as soon as I had a week off for my mini-moon, I found myself raiding my bookshelves like it was nobody’s business.  During the…

Change is a very good thing… | Rosie Abigail

To quote Obi-Wan Kenobi, “hello there”. To quote myself, “long time, no see, eh?” It’s been a little while since I’ve been in the blogging sphere, a few months in fact. I’m sorry for not heading off with an interim “I’m off!” post or a “see ya in August!” message. You see, I hadn’t planned…

May Favourites 2022 | Books, Style, and … COVID?

Well, this post is a little late. I guess that’s what happens when you get COVID... I’m on the road to recovery now, but at the very end of May, COVID hit me for the second time. And this time was bad. We had the paramedics out for my asthma, oxygen monitoring for a week,…

“Welcome to Spring!”, she says looking at the snow falling outside her window. We love a bit of global warming to start the season. That’s a lie, we don’t love any bit of global warming. Anyway, enough of focusing on the crippling state of the world and how it consumes my every thought, and let’s…

By the time the last week of January rolls around, I am so ready for a new month to start. Surprise, surprise, 2022 is no different. January was just so loooong. Payday is ages away, expectations for a new year are always high, and the weather is bloody freezing. I was at least hoping for…
