Lesson Learnt: How To Resolve Issues Effectively

Newsflash: being a grown up isn't always peachy! We all have those times when things don't quite go to plan, or we feel out of control of what's happening around us - but good news is, you will always come out the other side. Although it may not feel like it at the time, these experiences actually make us much more resilient as a person and as long as you learn from them - you are going to be OK!

Birthday Treat At Bob Bob Ricard

This year, to break from tradition we celebrated my mums birthday in London. Usually we do BBQ's back home, but this year dad and I decided to surprise her with a trip to a nice restaurant in London. Knowing my mum, and how much she loves Champagne - it had to be Bob Bob Ricard.

A discovered beauty: Montjoi, France

One of my favourite things to do when I'm away, is to go exploring. Especially when we come down to see Dan's parents in the south of France. His mum is always suggesting new places we haven't been before and I love it. Especially when you find somewhere that is so cute and quaint that you just know the 'real world' hasn't had its chance to spoil it yet.

A Cultural Performance In France

A trip to France was just what the doctor ordered recently and rather than just spend our time soaking up the sun (although we did do a lot of that) we managed to explore a lot of the local Gasques area and take in a couple of theatre performances too.

So, what you waiting for, hop in, there's a lot to see....

Over thinking - Ain't Nobody Got Time For That!

Over thinking a situation or feeling is never good. Regardless of what it is, what you think is so important that you can't help but spend at least 60% of your time thinking about it and working out every possible outcome or cause of a situation, you will just work yourself up into a tizz and likely make the whole situation so much worse (in your own mind anyway) than it needed to ever be.
