Another Stepping Stone is back, what’s new?

Back and ready to roll! It’s been a long time since I sat down to write anything apart from essays and revision notes, but today marks a new month and three days since I finished university. I started this space about two years ago now because I wanted somewhere to share my experiences as a…

Canterbury on a crisp Sunday morning

This morning I was up bright and early, not quite fresh as a daisy but awake, the sun was shining and the time had come to walk to the train station and say goodbye to my best friend,  as it was such a beautiful morning I decided to wander back through the park and take a…

The power of words – 100 days of happiness

Sometimes words can do more than anything else in the world, they can wound, they can cure. Words bring smiles and tears. But sometimes words aren’t necessary.
