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 there are new celebrities, bloggers and YouTubers opening up about their own struggles – Why is it then, that as soon as these niggling little […]

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) half made up for the awfully freezing weather we had yesterday. Almost the entirety of the last two months have been spent held up in […]

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 I really should have been using my free time to do my assignments, I was on dating websites and chatting to boys. (This was to […]

Things To Do With A Child When It’s Hot

If your child is anything like mine, then as soon as it’s even a little warm outside they start to whinge. Here are a few things that I have used to combat the grumbling – – Ice lollies that inevitably end up in a puddle of sticky mess on of the following surfaces; carpet, patio, grass, pram, baby, Mummy. (Ice creams are similar. I feel for any parent whose child is old enough to understand the pied piper call of the ice cream van.) – The park, so that you […]

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 pieces and an abundance of receipts for milk from Iceland, most of which are from months ago. (Why do I never seem to keep the […]

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 busiest of shops too – and I’m sure she’s trying to show off to everyone just how little control I actually have her – so […]

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.
