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 […]

Things That Make Me Feel Like I’m Still A Child

I don’t think I can pretend any longer, it’s finally time to admit that I am officially an adult. I held out for 26 years, but now that I live alone and have to pay bills, do chores and make my own meals, I think I have to give it up. That’s not to say that there aren’t still a few things that make me feel like I am still a child, and make me question my ability to “adult”. One of which is understanding taxes, rebates and pensions. (Why […]

Here’s To You (Part 5)

– The girls who get hooked on a Netflix series and HAVE to watch it all in one day. – The girls who are upset that a series on Netflix doesn’t fit all in one day and we have to go to bed at some point. -The girls who dream about being a part of the Netflix series because we watched too much of it before bed. – The girls who have to Google what is going to happen next on the Netflix series, because we just can’t handle it.

Pros & Cons of Living Alone – THE PROS

Okay, a little disclaimer, I don’t technically live alone. Of course, there is a little Mini Me running around this household, however having lived with flatmates, boyfriends and parents I can tell you it pretty much is still very much like living alone (apart from all the great Mini cuddles I get.) Living alone can be great, but it can also be super lonely and sometimes scary – mostly when I am lay in bed at night and hear a funny noise! Sometimes, when I’m washing up for the fourth […]

Birth: Why Women Forget The Pain

The downright gorgeous Holly Willoughby has recently been quoted saying that she loves giving birth. She said that although birth was painful, it was a different kind of pain and it made her feel more alive that ever before – a feeling she has not gotten from anything else. WHATTT! This b*tch is crazy!I can practically hear you scream at your screens from here, but actually…I agree.When my sister was pregnant at the start of the year, we were shopping for baby clothes and I asked her if she was […]

5 Ways My Kid Is Trying To Get A New Dad

This post was supposed to be about travelling on a train with a one year old, after our 5 hour (almost) train journey to Edinburgh for our holiday last week, but as luck would have it Mini-Me was as good as a child possibly could be with very minimal effort from me. I had nothing funny to write about and absolutely no advice to give. My next idea was to write a post about her behaviour in general on the holiday, but again…very little to report. I did notice that […]

Here’s to You (Part 4)

– The girls who ALWAYS put their toe, or entire leg, through the holes in ripped jeans. – The girls who own 50 pairs of shoes and wear the same pair every day. – The girls who binge watch Ru Paul’s Drag Race.– The girls who can’t do their make-up as good as the b*tches on Ru Paul’s Drag Race. – The girls who leave it to the very last minute to pack for a holiday. – The girls who leave it to the very last minute to buy a […]

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 […]
