Hello Day indeed!

If you've been following my Instagram at all, firstly, thank you! I'm very new to it, but it's getting there I hope. Secondly, you might have already established that my new book, Fiona and the Whale, has a bit of a theme going on. I don't want to bore you with it too much, but let's just say I'm pretty passionate about doing what we can to reduce plastic waste. With that in mind, I needed to get a new planner to start the next academic year.

I am the type of person who is so much more efficient with a paper planner. Don't ask me why but I am. Physically putting a line through item after item on my to do list seems to motivate me infinitely more than doing it electronically. For the last few weeks I have been using a different brand of planner, we'll call it the Cheeriness Planner. (That's not its real name) What I liked about this was the way it made you reflect on you day and week, good points and bad, and make sure you had a clear focus on your day ahead. It was also loaded with motivational quotes which, while in public I will probably poopoo and talk about how cheesy they are, secretly, I rather like. I can honestly say that using it really helped change my attitude towards the day. I was keen to upgrade to a full year planner. Until on their website I saw how it was wrapped in bubble wrap.

Not deterred I emailed them and asked if they could send one without. I didn't mind if it got a bit bumped and battered along the way, it was the inside I wanted it for, not the outside. Yet disappointingly they said this wouldn't be possible. I tried another similar planner company and had the same result. And another. All insisted it was simply not possible to send their item without plastic.

Then I received this response below. To be honest, I think it says it all. I will admit, I have never paid this much for a diary or planner of any type before, but I am completely okay with that. If I am going to spend my money, I would much rather it went to a company like this, with such an amazing attitude.

Anyway, that's my time up for now.

Much love,

The Week of the Whales

If you follow me on any aspect of social Media, you will know that this week has been a pretty crazy one for me. After months of research, writing and editing, on Sunday I released my latest novel, Fi

So much for fifteen minutes a day!

Well that didn't last long did it? I thought 15 minutes a day was going to be easy. I was wrong. But just so you understand, I have been doing a lot of work too, despite it being my official “holiday”

Another day, Another draft

Happy Tuesday Everyone. For me this really is a happy Tuesday, as I finished the first draft of Fiona and the Whale. I’m not going to lie, it is not a tidy first draft. I have a long way to go before
