Dating Tales: The Time I Was The Worst Date Ever

I have written in my bio that I am a dating failure, and that is no lie.   I am a dating failure. Not to say that I am an awful date (please date me..I’m pretty average looking, have an adorable pre-made child, and can be funny, sometimes…), it just so happens that A LOT of the dates that I have been on have been pretty big failures. (Who am I kidding? It is probably something to do with me…and you will probably all think so after reading this post.) […]

20 Ways My Kid Has Woke Me Up

As an expectant parent one of the most common phrases you will hear is – “Get all your sleep in now, because you won’t get any when the baby comes!” And unfortunately, it is kind of true. (Although, the idea that you can somehow save up sleeping hours is nonsensical and annoying. I will sleep now, not because you told me too Belinda who works on the checkout at Asda, but because I’m 7 months pregnant and I’m frickin’ tired now!) Even over a year later, I am still (luckily […]

26 for 26

Today is my birthday! I probably wrote that with much more enthusiasm than I actually feel.

Here’s to You! (Part 3)

– The girls that obsess over Eurovision each year, and cheer at the top of our lungs every time the UK gets a point, even though we know we won’t win. – The girls who are trying to diet and the ice cream man has started to taunt you with his merry tune – The girls who love being outside in the sun until they are chased for 5 minutes by a bee, can’t enjoy a sandwich without being bombarded by 3 flies, and walk into  6 cobwebs when trying […]

The Unexpected Perks of Having a Small Child

Not to say that there aren’t any perks of having a small child, of course there are, but these are the ones that all perspective parents might not think of. 1- A reason not to go out. Don’t wanna go to that family friend’s Christmas party? Scared of the unwarranted sloppy kiss from your “favourite Auntie”? And not forgetting the awkward conversations about the non-existent (or even worse…existent) sex lives of those family friends who now deem you old enough to be privy to those conversations? Turns out “Little Joey […]

Here’s To You! (Part 2)

-The girls who know that cooking a frozen pizza is a fine art. (One minute it is still frozen, the next minute it is burnt!) – The girls who cannot meal plan to save their lives.– The girls who have thread veins before the age of thirty. (What is that about?) – The girls who sit in the bath thirty minutes longer than they planned because you know it will be a lot of effort to get out. – The girls who don’t shower every day because it’s a lot […]
