Pros & Cons of Living Alone – THE CONS

**Disclaimer: I obviously don’t technically live alone, however having lived with flatmates, boyfriends and parents I can tell you  that living with Mini is pretty much like living alone (apart from all the great Mini cuddles I get.)** Living alone is great, don’t get me wrong (If you don’t believe me, go and check out my last post about it), but there are nights when I lay in bed and wish that I didn’t leave alone at all – mostly after hearing knocking from next door. I love not having […]

It’s All Fluff – What’s Wrong With Being Commercial?

  **WARNING: LONG POST** “It’s all fluff!”  In year 10, as part of our GCSE coursework, I was required to write a short story. “The title of the piece must be “Monday”, but it can be about anything you want, anything at all.” Excitement fluttered through my stomach, and I spent the rest of the school day obsessing over which idea I was going to pick. We had been told to write down 5 openers to different stories, and my head was almost audibly buzzing as I thought of all […]

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.) […]

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 […]

(NOT) How To: Use Coconut Oil For Your Skin

Lots of people rave about the many uses of coconut oil, and since I already had it in the house (for my hair) I thought I would try it out on my face. (Mostly because I wasn’t too sure about how I would feel about it in my mouth…that’s what she said.) ** I am not an expert** You should use coconut oil for your skin if: – You already have it in the house. (If I already have it in the house for some other reason I basically class […]

Here’s to You! (Part 1)

Here’s to you/me/us: – The girls who pop a spot as soon as it dare make an appearance. We know we shouldn’t, we tell other people they shouldn’t, but as soon as it raises its ugly yellow head we have to get rid of it – and fast! – The girls who started a diet a week ago and the cucumber you brought for “salad” is still half eaten in the fridge. And will probably stay there for another week. – The girls that decide not to do the washing […]

10 Gross Things My Kid Has Done

To me M is perfect, but she is just a baby and that means she does some things us mums would rather not talk about…well not me. Nearly every day M does something that amazes and astounds me, but 6/10 times those things are pretty gross. Here is a run down of the 10 best (or weirdest) ones.  1. She licked my foot. Actually she does this quite a lot. She really likes feet and slippers.  2. Played with her boogie. I think a lot of children do this, but […]

P.lease M.ore S.weets

Today I was really suffering with our good old pal, Aunt Flow. I had a gas man come round to my house to fit a smart meter (only took 8 months to sort), and though he was only here for an hour at the most, I noticed myself become more and more unnecessarily angry at how long he was taking and how many questions he was asking me, when all I wanted to do was go and buy a shop worth of cake, sweets and maybe some chips. (He was ACTUALLY […]
