WHO AM I ?

Hello,  I'm Belinda. BellasCollectanea is a random collection of my thoughts, feelings and current obsessions.

March 28, 2019

I had some bad news yesterday. Not about me, or any of my immediate family, but a close friend from work lost her much-wanted baby at 39 weeks. There was no immediately obvious reason, she just...died. SIDS in the womb. I didn't know that was a thing, but, now I do.

It'...

I’ve never been a sporty person. I’ve had a complicated relationship with sport, never seen myself as the kind of person that could do sport and always just assumed I’d be bad at it and out of fit forever. I had a scary gym teacher growing up, and he really reinforced...

Last week marked the 19th anniversary of when my father dropped dead in front of me. I was 14. Well he wasn’t quite dead when he dropped, but he was certainly unconscious and he never did regain consciousness. 

I found out this week that a friend of 25 years, almost, (h...

I mentioned in my last post that I've taken up bullet journaling. Again. I must say, it's working better for me this time. Last time I kept it basic. I went with the original style started by Ryder Carrol. I'm no artist, so I didn't attempt to make it pretty. It worked...

Wow. Ok so it's been more than a little while since I posted in here. I'm still alive, it turns out, just lazy or lacking in things I wanted to say. 

Things are good, though. I'm happy. I'm seeing a lovely man, and happy with him. Living alone and loving that. Being cre...

I don't believe in new years resolutions. I'm not interested in losing weight - though I am interested in becoming healthier. I'm not interested in dieting. I have goals that I'm working towards, but I'm ok with it being a work in progress and not something I beat myse...

The more that I have been making things from scratch, the more satisfying that I am finding it. I created a complicated food plan for this week, and based my shopping list off that. I've been doing well by eating off it, mostly, although I have swapped a few things aro...

I just finished putting up my christmas tree. My second tree of my own ever. I bought it years ago, then moved into houses with other people who either didn't do Christmas trees, or I was overseas so putting up my own didn't make much sense.

 

I'm listening to Christmas...

 It's been a long time since I've felt particularly Christmassy. I loved Christmas as a child, but once Santa stopped visiting, age 12, Christmas was less and less exciting. After my dad passed away, Christmas dwindled even further. 

 

We used to have big family Chr...

I finished the muslin for my Cascade Duffle Coat last night. I'm really happy with it! I made a raincoat about a year and a half ago and the difference in the finish between the two is a little bit insane. I did a much neater job with this coat, It's not perfect, but...
