After last week was heavily focused on my experience with Blogging - this week I wanted to have more fun with Blogtober: Starting with the Mystery Blogger Award. As far as I am aware, this is the first time I have been tagged for anything! I was nominated by the lovely Eve / iaminbologna (web: https://unedited365.wordpress.com/). …
I’m having a little bit of a nightmare tonight, and unfortunately the blog post I was preparing isn’t quite ready… *sigh*. But although it’s a little bit of a cheat, I thought I would share this blog post I made recently instead. I’m still pretty busy sorting the things I was back in July. Curse my excellent procrastination! I’ll be back tomorrow with a shiny new blog post. Until then, take care everyone x
As I’m uploading this, I have been really awful at blogging this week and I’m sorry for missing TWO uploads! Procrastination has been my worst enemy which isn’t so great when you are preparing to leave the country… Anyway, here I am and as I’ve been sorting through things I have found lots of little things with big meanings around my room. It has inspired me to share them with you.

It was the first year I discovered YouTubers and I was absolutely enamoured by the idea of vlogging life so that everything could be remembered.

Tonight I simply wanted to reblog this post. It was the second post I ever wrote and I’m still standing by this philosophy today! I’m proud of this post and am happy I can share it now for more people to see.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this blast from the past, and I will see you again tomorrow 😶🍂
Just popping in to share this post, as it follows so nicely from ‘The Forgiving Woman’. This is a very thoughtful way of bringing the blogging community together, and it’s such a beautiful piece of writing – how could I resist? I’m sure Rowena would appreciate you leaving your comments on her blog and sharing this with your own communities too. Enjoy everyone ❤
PS. I left my answers in the comments on Rowena’s blog if you’d like to see mine!
Lately, I’ve been feeling quite overwhelmed by the latest terror attacks in the UK, which as we all know too well, are simply the latest chapters in a much longer story. Despite believing in the power of the pen to overcome the sword and in the power of the individual to change the world, or at least influence the world around them, I am starting to doubt. These attacks are so random and unpredictable and the victims ordinary people…it’s all becoming quite impossible to fathom.
For those of you who have been following my blog for some time, you’ll know that I’ve been part of a global blogging group 1000 Voices for Compassion, which started up after the attacks on Paris. However, I’d already been speaking out against terrorism following the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 in the Ukraine and the Lindt Cafe Siege in Sydney. Journalists covering…
