The Year of Fun #35: Visit a Medium

Oh boy am I hesitant about sharing THIS one: the one in which I visit a medium. As in, someone who channels spirits. Especially after last week’s yoga one, or any of my other more New Age adventures… because this really takes the biscuit. And at the same time, I’m certainly not judging anyone who […]

The Year of Fun #34: Yoga Teacher Training

Oh yes, I will not deny this one is a bit left field. I mean, how often have I mentioned yoga on this blog or podcast, ever? When I told some friends that I was going to be taking a YTT 200 – or a yoga teacher training course that leaves me minimally qualified to […]

The Year of Fun #33: Botanical Illustration Workshop

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a 3 hour workshop on Botanical Illustration with the Yurt Academy. Honestly I was a bit nervous before I went, partly because I’ve never attempted a formal illustration class, though I’ve done a fair amount of life drawing. Also, botanical illustration is no joke! If you can […]

The Year of Fun #32: Host a Creative Meetup

I’ve been in two minds trying to decide what fun I could share with you this week – you might have noticed I missed last week’s fun update, and that was because I was away in Menorca (a small Balearic island) and had a pretty impossible wifi connection. So my debate was whether or not […]

The Year of Fun #31: Take a Pottery Class

Oh boy was I excited for this one – and it came at just the right time. September has kind of kicked my ass back into action, after a summer where I really couldn’t do much more than be a sweaty, unproductive mess. Honestly I probably would have bailed on the day that the pottery […]

The Year of Fun #30: Brighton Royal Pavilion

Brighton Pavilion is arguably the most stunning landmark in Brighton, and honestly quite underrated. I remember visiting Brighton a lot as a kid, long before I moved here, and never once went inside the exotic palace, I only ever wandered through the gardens. I admit I did finally go last year, but I’ve always meant […]

The Year of Fun #26: Swim in the Sea

I really did hope I’d stop moaning about the heatwave long before recording this podcast. I now can’t remember a time when I wasn’t uncomfortably warm. And I resent the fact that I’m now doing the stereotypical Brit thing of talking about the weather, but there IS a reason for it: because, it was the […]

The Year of Fun #17: Audience Participation

Last weekend was opening weekend and I surprised myself: I got stuck in to Brighton Festival for the first time.   On Saturday I went with a friend to a comedy gig. I didn’t have much in terms of expectations, I just knew it was at the right time of day (early evening – I’m […]

The Year of Fun #16: Book Club

Reading is one of the best solitary activities there is, and I for one have always been – since I could read I guess – a big old book worm.   But one thing that you can’t do alone, is discuss the book afterwards – and this is something I love to do. It’s like […]

The Year of Fun #15: BrightonSEO Conference

What what – an introvert at a conference!? I know – but remember I do like a challenge… This was an unexpectedly fun part of my week, and my conclusion for why this was is… FOCUS. My funk last week, I believe, is down to a lack of focus. A feeling that is definitely disturbing […]
