Being you sounds so much better, but it’s hard…

Writing an e mail or jotting down the weekly shopping list. No problem! But writing something meaningful can be an absolute nightmare. It’s easy to go all formal when writing about something which can end up sounding really boring. In my earlier blog posts I used the word thus here and there. I mean, thus?!

I’ve been practicing and I found a couple of tips that really helped me out.

I must stop wine-ing…

Last night I made a mushroom bourguignon, which according to Jamie Oliver’s recipe, requires half a bottle of red wine. I love a bit of vin rouge on a cold dark night so I happily sloshed that wine into the pan. I served the bourguignon with mashed potato and the whole thing tasted great. This morning I woke up with a hangover though so perhaps I should have left it until tonight! And before you ask I didn’t drink the other half bottle to myself ; )

Blogging from bed needs to be done sometimes…

Roughly two years ago I started blogging and so much has happened in that time. It’s been a real period of growth where I’ve faced (and blogged about) certain issues such as confidence.

I have more confidence in myself and a better idea about who I am as a person. With all these personal changes the stuff I use to blog has stayed pretty much the same.
