I have managed to move in with strangers four times (once was unplanned thanks to the bathroom ceiling falling in, thank you landlord for that solid foundation) so these are things I have done in order to make the whole process… Continue reading How to survive living with strangers
I'll be honest, this post is inspired by quite a few things. Recently, I read 'The Year of Living Danishly' by Helen Russell, which basically explores Danish culture and what makes them the happiest nation. One thing that seemed to contribute was having a strong work-life balance. That you don't need to put pressure on… Continue reading You’re doing enough
