It’s been a while since my last bookshop post, but never fear because I visited an absolute beauty of a bookshop last week that I can’t wait to tell you about.

Good morning! I’m writing this week’s Sunday Stories whilst munching on my breakfast and feeling content. Yesterday we met some friends for a BBQ in a local park and it was so lovely to be out in the sun, feeling somewhat normal! Today’s plan is to catch up on some reading so let’s crack on …

I thought I’d change up my Sunday Stories this week a little bit to share the things that I’ve been enjoying this week. I normally get these out in the morning however today has been very productive.

Sunday Stories #9

Hi friends and happy Sunday. In classic Welsh style, It’s been a wet weekend after a scorching week so I am cosied up under a blanket listening to the wind howl around outside. Is there anything better than having nowhere to go in weather like this? Today I’m going to have a Sunday roast, make …

Sunday Stories #8

Hello friends and welcome to this week’s Sunday Stories. I hope you’ve all had a great week. Wales has been a bit wet and work has been busy but we’ve also managed to nail homemade chai lattes. Swings and roundabouts, no? Let’s get right into what I’ve been up to over the last 7 seven …

Hello friends! Another week slides past and here in Wales in terms of lockdown, it feels like nothing much is changing at all. Yet change is in the air as we see protests across the world – we must keep doing the work. Here is this week’s Sunday Stories and what I have been up …
