Ed Sheeran on his stutter




Earlier today I came across this video on one of my social media sites.

I felt the need to share. This is a brilliant message.

Bullet journal update


Some of you may be aware that in December last year I began a bullet journal. It is not an official one just a general notebook. I thought today I would write and let you know how I was getting on with it.

This month is the sixth month I have been using this system. I have definitely not perfected it yet.  When I originally set it up I decided there was no need for an index but am now regretting this as with so many pages it takes a while to find what is needed.

I am not sure about all the collections being all over the notebook. This may grow on me.

The general key is great although I did adapt it and make some changes to incorporate some mental health symbols.

It is a great way to write down all the things I need to do although sometimes I still forget what I need.

I like to be able to be creative but don’t always want to do something elaborate.

One great thing is making me sit and think of something good that happens each day and reflect.

What tips do you have? What makes it easier for you?

Leave me a comment below of how youbullet journal.

Hello again


I am really sorry that I haven’t posted much at all this year its all been a bit chaos.

I am still volunteering one day a week at Citizen’s advice as Information Assistant. Each week I get a little more confident with the phone.

This year I have already done at least three day/overnight guiding events and have managed to sign of a few clauses of my Leadership Qualification. Maybe I could finish that this year? Hmm What do you think?

Medically, everything still seems to be really good which I am very happy about as it means one less worry. Mentally, has been a little all over the place but I am getting back on track with support from some great people.

I have decided against driving for now as I have lost interest, I can always pick it up again later.

I plan to be writing much more regularly (fingers crossed.)

How are you? what exciting adventures have you been on? Let me know in the comments below.

Take care,

All it takes is 20 seconds


I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get really nervous before I do something.

One way to help you to achieve is  20 seconds of courage.

Hope this helps.

Out and about 


Today I went out and saw some lovely plants. I took a picture of a couple of unusual ones.

What unusual flowers or plants have you seen?

Am I right in believing today is the first day of spring?

All Time Low Concert

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well.

Last night I went to my first concert. I was amazing.

All Time Low has been my favourite band for the last three years.

The last UK tour was four years ago so I was really lucky to be able to get tickets.

There were songs from many of their albums including my top three, Weightless, Missing You and therepy. As well as a sneak peak at their new album which is being released this summer.

It was such a great experience and I immersed myself in the music and enjoyed every second.


I did not record much of it as I wanted to live in the moment.

If you listen to All Time Low what is your favourite song/s? Or your favourite album?

I apologise for the poor photo quality.

Take care,

Prompt doubt


Whilst looking through a few websites I came across this.

It takes maximum of a minute to sign.

As my regular readers will be aware, mental health/illness is something important to me.

I hope to work within this field eventually.

I doubt those who have been through or are going through mental illness would deny how difficult it is and how just a small amount of support can make such a huge difference.

Please click on and sign to help to end the stigma and support people who really need it.


Thank you in advanced.

Take care,

Dolphin xx
