On a New Diagnosis and Trying Not To Go Entirely Mad

On a New Diagnosis and Trying Not To Go Entirely Mad

Hello my blog friends, and any folks who may have landed here via other routes or sources *waving* I want to have a little chat about something that’s plopped onto my radar recently in a most unwelcome fashion. It’s something I’ve been reluctant to have a blog about (which is rather unusual for me) because … Read More

A Very Well Illustrated Moan

A Very Well Illustrated Moan

Hello lovely blog chums! I sure hope you’ve all enjoyed a tremendous weekend? We celebrated one week in our new place by being super lazy. I might have been the most lazy, I’m not sure.

I’ve felt a strange mismatch between my mood and the blazing sunshine; I’ve … Read More

Teatime Collective, Manchester (and some sewing)

Both living in East Manchester and an exceptional level of personal laziness have contributed to me never having visited Teatime Collective before now, even though it opened back in late 2013. Teatime Collective is a now (I think!) 100% vegan cafe and ice cream parlour also offering custom-made bakes, and event catering. I was dead … Read More
