Happy New Year

Happy New Year

I don’t know about all of you, but January is a crazy busy month for me. Loads of deadlines and things to do! After a few calm, relaxing weeks at Christmas, it feels like my life has gone from zero to one hundred. I’m not […]

Post Christmas Catch-up

Post Christmas Catch-up

I thought I’d take this blog post to catch you all up with what I’m up to now Christmas is over. I say Christmas is over, it wasn’t really over until New Year for me! Having divorced parents means Christmas is always prolonged for me. […]

Winter Essentials

Winter Essentials

Today is officially the last day of astronomical autumn, although I feel like it’s been winter for a while already. I don’t know about you but I’m the kind of person who gets every single cold that’s around, so in this blog I’m going to […]

Sea moss and fake advertisements

Sea moss and fake advertisements

At the BBC Good Food Show and even at the Allergy & Free-from Show, I have found a stand where people were selling sea moss. I don’t remember which brand, and anyway, it’s not important because many brands claim the same thing. In its advertisement, […]

Missing my land, Sardinia

I am Italian, from a beautiful island whose name is Sardinia, and for one or another reason, I haven’t been able to go home for two years. Today I have been looking for a particular song in Sardinian. This piece gives me goosebumps, and I […]

Some words of advice

Some words of advice

Do you get fed up and roll your eyes when an older relative or family friend spouts some saying or well-meaning words of wisdom in an effort to give you some advice? Have you heard it all before? Well perhaps you shouldn’t be so quick […]

What’s in a name?

What’s in a name?

As you will have probably noticed, my name, Killoran, is quite unusual. It is the name of a town in Ireland and Scotland and has Gaelic connotations. I was also told by someone who knows these things that the “Kil” bit means church and therefore […]

14 November, World diabetes day

14 November, World diabetes day

100 years ago, an important discovery was made, and it continues to save millions of people in the world: insulin. I am type 1 diabetic, and without it, I wouldn’t be writing this post. But my purpose is not to make you sad, but to […]
