A quick weekend back in the normal world

A quick weekend back in the normal world

After a few days sleeping and relaxing in Brighton, I feel like I can finally take the time to write something up. As I logged on I realised that almost one month has gone by since I last published something. So much for thinking I would be able to keep writing whilst volunteering! Since it’s […]

The guilt of a day off

The guilt of a day off

You are travelling so you should be out and making the best of it. Or it’s your day off, so you should go out and do something on your endless to-do list.  I don’t know about you, but I’m quite often guilty of not allowing myself to take an easy day or an actual day […]

Seasoned Chickpeas

Seasoned Chickpeas

This Seasoned Chickpeas recipe is by far one of my favourite when I’m in a rush, when I don’t know what to cook or when I need snacks for hiking. I took the original recipe from Deborah Gray’s book 500 Vegan Dishes. You can easily change the spices to mix it a bit. When looking […]

We all have our complexes

P1210502

Complexed about my skin issues Every so often someone well intended will come to me and mention something I should try to clear up my skin. Having literally tried everything, I tend to get quite defensive, ready to tell anyone daring to comment that of course I did not decide to have bad skin that […]

It only takes one person to make a difference

Improving my mechanic skills

With all my reading lately thanks to my mom’s library card, I feel like I get a better understanding of how I think. I don’t really know what to do with that information quite yet but I do find it very interesting. So even though I feel like nothing is happening in my life right […]
