Episode Summary

It's super to have Sophie back on the podcast today, especially as we're celebrating the 6 month anniversary of Tea & Tattle! We're having a general catch-up on the podcast today, and Sophie explains why she's been so busy lately. We're also reflecting on our theme words that we set at the start of the year in Episode 10. Sophie chose 'openness' as a word to frame what she wanted to achieve in 2017, and I chose 'consistency.' As we said in January, we want to regularly check in with each other (and with our listeners!) to see how we're getting on with our goals, and so this episode is devoted to reflecting on our progress through the year so far. 

Listen to hear our reflections on the year so far and how much we've managed to keep to our theme words of 'consistency' and 'openness.'

Your Thoughts

Thank you so much for listening and being a part of Tea & Tattle podcast. As always, we love to hear your thoughts, so please let us know:

What are your reflections on the year so far? Are you happy with your progress in 2017? Is there anything that's working particularly well for you in helping you to attain goals, or is there something you need to change?

Next Time...

I'm in conversation with one of my favourite writers, Samantha Ellis, about her books How to be a Heroine and Take Courage: Anne Brontë and the Art of Life. We had such a fascinating chat about female literary heroines that particularly inspired Samantha, as well as her fascination with Anne Brontë and what learning more about Anne's life taught Samantha about herself. 

Happy Listening!
