Hello! I’m Pip….

…a single mother of two children from the Midlands in the UK, who decided to write a blog for fun and in the search for self-improvement.

I’ve had experiences in my life that I’ve had to overcome, and now finally I’m able to say that life looks much better! I feel it might be beneficial (at least to me, and perhaps you) to share some of my experiences and show you, dear reader, how I got through; and perhaps even offer a helping hand.

This has turned out to be quite a personal blog, with some proper articles, as much common sense as I can muster, a growing collection of things that make me smile, and real-world tips for an easier life. In a way, I started writing for a younger version of myself, but the posts have evolved over the past few months as I’ve become more confident..I do wonder if anyone can see the differences…

I only started this website at Christmas (2016), so please come back and see what I’ve been up to – I’m trying to add something every few days to make this relevant and fun, as well as personal; and I can always use some encouragement.

It’s free to join in, (just register with an email address), and I’ll read all comments and try to reply – I doubt I’m going to be inundated with joyful messages, but it would be nice…

I hope you find some of these things useful, or at least interesting…Let me know in the comments!
