I’m a firm believer in trying new things, from food to music to books and travel. Whilst I am always looking for that new experience or skill to learn, I do have my trusty “can do” list. We aim to visit a new place regularly whether it is near or far – you know where love a road trip here at Lady from a Tramp! Professionally, I push myself to learn or develop a new skill every 3 months at work so I can put it to use for the rest of the year.
What’s the most fun you can have on a Saturday evening? Oh, only driving Trams around an empty Beamish Museum.
In today’s digital age, the practise of mindfulness has become less and less prominent in people’s lives. More-often-than-not, and especially at work, we ‘zone-out’ or switch onto auto pilot.
My go to relaxation is reading, I read for at least 30 minutes a day, without fail and I know that no matter how hectic my day is, I have a block of time where I focus on nothing but the story.
Failing reading, I put on some loud music and dance around like Andrew W.K until all my cares have gone!
I am guilty for buying crap I don’t need. I know this, I work on this. I am a sucker for a sale spend but this year I have been very restrained and cut down on those impulse purchases and needless junk from the sales just because it’s a “bargain”. I’ve stuck to only buying things I need!
This year, the company I work for decided to stop the corporate spending on cards to clients that rarely get looked at and instead donated the same value to a local Food Bank. With well over 150 items provided, we swapped spending for helping.
