The End of the Decade! My Round-Up of 2019

WOW. What a year… I know things have turned a bit rubbish recently but you know, I’ve had a fantastic year! I’ve enjoyed about 90% of it which I’d say is pretty fantastic. This post is mostly here as I just wanted to write down all I’ve done this year and reflect on how many things have progressed. So often I feel like I’m going nowhere fast so…. time to prove myself wrong!

AD – Breaking the “Too Busy” Barriers – Reconnecting with Good friends and Great games*

Adult life is so hard, huh? Often when you want to reconnect with your friends, you compare calendars and there’s that all too familiar scenario… “How does the 5th sound?” “I’m out that day what about the 7th?” “Oh, I can’t do that… 9th?” “Busy then… Erm…”

That’s why when the fantastic team over at giffgaff gifted me a games night kit and challenged me to host a games night, I thought it’d be a fantastic way to reconnect my friends as a group. We’d not spent any time together for so long and it seemed like the perfect excuse!

I planned to write a ton of Halloween themed posts this October, but I’ve been so busy making those Halloween plans that I’ve not managed to write a single one! Instead, I thought I’d share the ways I’ve been getting into the spirit of Halloween and managed to make it last all throughout October.

A Vegan Egg?! Having a Gudetama at Wagamama*

Has anyone been to Wagamama since the new vegan menu launch? I had the fantastic opportunity of checking out their new menu with a fab bunch of locals – and this is what I found out! I even solved the mystery of the vegan egg!
