What I Learnt From a 7yr Old’s Birthday Party

My niece had her birthday party recently and as I sat stuffing my face with party rings dressed unwillingly in a cheap Belle costume dress, I realised a few things. 1. Princess dresses are itchy. They might look good, but they are definitely itchy and I came away from that party with red marks on my arms. 2. Wigs also are very itchy. I have […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]
