An Update on 2017’s Resolutions

Back in January I (along with many others) set some New Year’s Resolutions. We’re well into the last quarter of 2017 and I thought it’s be a good time to look back, see if there were any achievements and if there’s any extra work I need to do to succeed

I started the year by saying the following:

To look forward, I see the three words that will underpin and define 2017 for me:

-FAMILY – HEALTH – ADVENTURES –

BlogCampOnBoard with MSC Preziosa

On the 4th October myself and 120 other bloggers had an amazing opportunity to visit MSC Preziosa. I grew up in Hampshire and with Southampton being the biggest cruise city in the region I’m a little ashamed to say I’ve never been on a cruise ship before Continue reading “BlogCampOnBoard with MSC Preziosa”

Podcasting {Blogtober #5}

I’m pretty new to the world of podcasts, I used to think they were really geeky and would be of absolutely no interest to me, but after listening to several audiobooks this summer I decided to try podcasts for my commute and they’ve revolutionised my journies to and from work. They make me laugh, make me think, and quite often I arrive at the office without really thinking about the traffic I’ve sat in for what always feels like forever

A Month of Adventures {September 2017} {Blogtober #4}

We’ve now completed three quarters of 2017 and into my favourite season. It seems that everyone loves autumn too and I totally understand why although I am unsure how we’ve managed to complete 3 quarters of 2017 already

My Weekly List {29/09/17}

This week has been a real whirlwind and while I’m glad it’s Friday and the weekend is nearly upon us I’m not quite sure where it went! It’s been a hard week with J, she is struggling with the full time school hours and is so tired. She asked if she also gets paid because she goes to school the same days I go to work which made me laugh but also made her realise just how full on life is now she’s a school girl. And so here is my list for this week:

This Little Cookie Went to BlogOn Xmas

This week I went to my first ever blogging conference and I was pretty nervous beforehand. The morning arrived faster than I expected and off I went sporting a Christmas Elf top and with butterflies in my stomach

There are a few things people advised me of before, some I genuinely thought they were joking about (why would I need to take a large suitcase with me?) and some I was quietly hoping was true (nice people, good laughs and a great day). I’m now counting down the days to the next one and here are some of the things I have told people about my time at BlogOn

My Weekly List {15/9/17}

I used to do a weekly list on here to review what I’d loved that week, or what we found hard but I stopped and I can’t quite remember why

There’s been a lot of change here in recent weeks and there’s been some areas that I’d like to change. With everything going on I’ve felt those grey skies try to break through again – those very grey skies that I’ve tried my best to avoid for the past year or so

BlogOn Xmas Jumper Linky – Life at Cooks Cabin

I’m going to my first ever conference in a few short weeks and I’m a little bit nervous having never met anyone that’s going before. I’m really looking forward to it, even if people may look at me weird with a Christmas jumper on when at the train! The team did a linky for us to get to know each other which is fab so here goes – I’m Sherry, and here are my answers to the linky Q’s
