Hello there! Nice to meet you! I’m Claire and welcome my little corner of the internet!
I created this blog back in August of 2020. I set it up to allow myself some space to create. I’m a mama-to be, an avid bookworm, a photography lover, and have a bit of a creative head on my shoulders. I am a lover of getting my thoughts down on paper, and am a grade-A certified over-thinker! I work as a teacher and hope that some day in my future there’ll be a novel or children’s book with my name on it.
I live in Co. Cork, Ireland. My Other Half and I bought and moved into our first home in May of 2020. We’ve spent the last few months making our house a home and it is soon to be joined by a third human being in May 2021 – what a roller coaster of a year it’s been! I wouldn’t change anything for the world – except perhaps the global pandemic that we’re living through!
The blog is a place for me to write about anything and everything that comes to mind. I tend to love writing about the books I read, anything that I need to get off my chest, and often my greatest insecurities about life.
I’m looking to expand my relationships within the blogging community so if you’d like to get in touch be sure to say hello in the comments section!
Much love, Cx
Get to Know Me
Things I Love:
The colour blue (although yellow is my happy colour)
Being in nature
Trying new things
My lovely little doggo
Walks on the beach
Reading with a nice cuppa (or glass of vino!)
Laughing until I cry
Crunchy leaves in Autumn
Baths with salts, scented candles, relaxing music, and a good book
Things I Don’t Love:
Waking up early on weekends
The way that social media consumes our world these days
When people don’t use their indicators
People who are rude to shop assistants
Finding spelling and grammar mistakes in a book I’m reading – surely an editor was paid to spot these things!
When people spend more time paying attention to their phones than to the people they are with
People who wear lingerie as clothes
Would You Rather?
- Would you rather lose the ability to read or lose the ability to speak?
Speak – I’m a total bookworm. I can always write if I can’t speak!
- Would you rather be the first person to explore a planet or be the inventor of a drug that cures a deadly disease?
The inventor of the drug – no questions asked on this one!
- Would you rather live in a cave or live in a tree house?
Definitely a tree house!
- Would you rather be forced to eat only spicy food or only incredibly bland food?
Spicy food! I can not cope with bland foods!
- Would you rather take amazing selfies, but all of your other pictures are horrible or take breathtaking photographs of anything but yourself?
Breathtaking photos of anything but me! I definitely prefer to be behind the camera!
