Some realisations

Hello…It’s been a while as I have been desperately trying to get my final project completed for university but have really missed writing for pleasure.

I am working on a piece for my portfolio on the topic of Instagram v reality and thought I would blog about it too from my cheese induced coma, it’s been a while! This time of year is reflective, full of hope for a new year (and decade!) but equally full of sadness over those […]

Mum on campus

Thankfully not yet old enough to be my peer’s mothers, though I often feel it, I am approaching this journalism master’s from a completely different angle ten years on from my undergraduate degree. Donning a different hat for two days a week I am not a mum to my two boys but actually me again. […]
