Money Talk – How I Make Money Without A Fixed Address.

The one thing that I get asked time and time again, is how I make money if I live on the road. “That’s all very nice for you, BUT I HAVE BILLS TO PAY” has been said to me more times than I can count. “Don’t you feel bad about sponging off society?” (Another favourite.)Continue reading “Money Talk – How I Make Money Without A Fixed Address.”

Saving The Earth One Worm At A Time. The Little Things Matter!

For a long time, I believed that meaningful change had to come from the top. I though we had to see changes in legislation on an unimaginable scale to have any hope at saving the planet, and this obsession with ‘refusing the straw’ was entirely missing the point.  But… I’ve changed my mind.  Because, likeContinue reading “Saving The Earth One Worm At A Time.

Setting Healthy Boundaries With Social Media

It’s far too easy to get addicted to social media. That’s why I haven’t posted anything on the blog for the past couple of weeks.

Have you ever seen the film called Yes Man? It’s about a man who decides to say Yes to absolutely everything, just to see where it takes him.

And that is how I, a girl from sleepy Northamptonshire, ended upContinue reading “What Dating An Opioid Addict Taught Me About Drugs”

How to Know if You Are Being Abused in a Relationship

Four years ago, I  lay in bed and googled: ‘am I being abused?’ The first article that I stumbled upon said this: ‘If you are googling this question, then the answer is probably yes.’  I wouldn’t be able to find that same article again now. I have no idea who wrote it or on whatContinue reading “How to Know if You Are Being Abused in a Relationship”

Wild Camping Saved My Life (How It Might Save British Nature Too.)

I used to be a very unhappy person.  After graduating from University with a degree in International Development, I felt completely lost.
