Whilst honeymooning in beautiful Koh Samui some time ago, I read a bit about blogging, and it seems there is a lot to gain from this virtual diary, a bit of an upgrade on the diary I kept in the 1990’s – “dear diary I haven’t seen my crush in 6 weeks, I wonder if ill see him on Saturday… Blah blah”. Only this one isn’t scented.

During my nursing degree we were brainwashed with the idea of ‘reflection’ in order to improve our practice… It’s safe to say my colleagues and I at the barnyard have perfected this over a glass of Chardonnay or a girly big brunch.

Here are some of my favourite blogs:
