Starting The Journey // 24-7 Ibiza


I'm sat in Belfast International Airport,
and my flight has been delayed by like, 2 hours.
To the point where, I don't even know what Gate I'm supposed to be at,
and that isn't being announced for another 1hr45mins!

So I figured, what better time to start recording my journey with 24-7 Ibiza.
I have a solid wifi signal, a hot coffee, my laptop is all charged up and I'm settled at a table with a clear view of one of those Flight Update screens that everyone seems to flock around at the airport!

Looking Forward



I have a question for you...
Do you think it's important to have something to look forward to?
 To have something to fix your eyes on, to strive towards, 
to make working long, hard days worth it?

David & I talk about it pretty often, the need to have something there 
that we're looking forward to, to make everyday life worth it,
to make working opposite shifts to each other worth it.

Recipe: Sweet Banana Bread


I'm doing something a little different & random on my blog today...
I'm sharing a recipe!
It's nothing difficult, by any stretch of the imagination,
but it was an experiment for me & it turned out really well, so I thought I would share it with you!
 

Why I Quit My Job To Travel


At this moment in time, as I'm putting pen to paper, 
I'm sitting in a froyo cafe (my current place of work) on my break, 
looking out the window at the torrent of snow that's probably blanketing my poor wee car,
(side note - later on it took me a solid 15 mins to de-ice my car...)
and all I can think of is roughly this time last year when I officially "handed my notice in" 
and let my old job know that I was leaving to go travelling. 

That was quite the day.
There were so many different feelings, all these different kinds of emotions
all tied up in that one act of voluntarily leaving a stable place of employment, 
all for 3 months of the unknown.

December 2016 Reads



December is always a super busy month,
what with anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas, catch-ups & carol services,
so I actually didn't get as much reading done last month as I had planned!

What I did read, however, was all absolutely amazing! 
I'm still very much on a fantasy/dystopian/YA kick 
and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

These genres have so many fantastic authors with so much to offer
and I plan to devour every amazing book I can find!

Warning: Spoilers Ahead!
The first book below is the conclusion to a series, so if you haven't read the first 2 books yet,
the blurb might give some things away! 


One Little Word 2017


Happy New Year, friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a fab New Year, however you chose to spend it!
I really hope it was more exciting than mine...
I was wrapped up in bed, struck down by a horrible chest/cough/cold thing...not the way
I had hoped to spend the last night of 2016 if I'm honest! 
Thankfully, it happened a day or two after Christmas day, 
so I was able to enjoy all the amazing food and drink that Christmas has to offer 
before I was confined to bed with only toast & water!

Anyway, now we're in 2017!
How weird is that? How long does it take you to get used to saying/writing the new year?
It usually takes me a good few weeks!
A brand new year, 365 days full of opportunities & experiences 
waiting to be grasped with both hands.
As this new year begins I want to carry over something that I did last year,
in place of creating New Years Resolutions or goals.
I'm sure you've heard of it before; the One Little Word project.
