Anxiety Pieces

Anxiety – It’s not just me!

**DISCLAIMER** I’m not looking to diminish anxiety for those that do suffer from it, especially as I myself suffer from it in many of its various forms, I’m just wondering if we shouldn’t all take a little comfort from the thought of anxiety being much more common than we think. Anxiety and depression is the most common mental disorder in Britain (source), and every day […]

Just My Luck

Firstly…it has snowed! It has actually bloody well snowed! Side note: I love snow, always have and always will, but snow does not love me and therefore I’m usually just trapped inside hoping that I don’t break my neck when the time comes to put my bins out. Yesterday was miserable, so I’m extra glad that it has snowed overnight as it’s almost (just about) […]

Dating Tales: The Time I Dated The Devil

I know you’re all thinking it – It’s about time for another disastrous dating tale! (OK, yes I do know that literally none of you were thinking that, but I’m gonna go ahead and write it anyway!) This is actually a story that I don’t think I have told anyone before, but it is nevertheless true. Back in my sad and lonely uni days, when […]

What’s In My (Nappy) Bag?

I seem to be clearing out my bag every two or three days and yet somehow its always full and I’m always left looking like an idiot searching for my purse or bus ticket whilst a queue forms behind me. I cannot fathom how it always gets to full, when I merely carry the essentials! My purse: With fifteen pence in pennies, two five pence […]

Reasons I’m Jealous of My 1yr Old

For some ungodly reason, my little Mini-Me has started whinging when in her pram. She’s only just started walking, and because of this has not yet been set free to ransack the bottom shelves of Asda or Boots, so why she insists that sitting in the pram for longer than 20 minutes is unacceptable, I have no idea! This always tends to happen in the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
