Since when did ‘work’ become so god-damn serious?! A place where ‘fun’ isn’t allowed, where you have to be super-mature and grown-up to partake? And you have to adhere to loads of rules, especially unwritten ones like; staying at work until 8pm, or until you’re the last one standing (so you look good to your […]

I’m as high as a kite right now, I’m literally flying, and I’m gurning as if I’ve been out all night, and it’s the next day. And no, I’m not on drugs (although it does feel like it). Ok, ok, I’m slightly exaggerating – I’m not actually gurning, but I do feel wired. I’ve been […]

Only 2 days to go until the big day….woohoo. You’ll feast, you’ll binge, Ferrero Rocher for breakfast and Netflix back-to-back. What’s not to love?! And of course, the presents. Are you a gift giver or receiver? I’m a giver, it’s much more my comfort zone and I get a real buzz from giving lovely presents. […]

So much stimulation…not really the relaxing holiday I was hoping for, and it’s taking time to wind-down and recharge. But i’ve had a little help…and i’m sharing it with […]

All the signs are there; swollen glands, phlegmy throat, shivery, blocked sinuses and permanently throbbing head. Yep, you are definitely sick….and it’s coming on hard and fast. You know that unless you give in, grab a hot water […]

I’m fresh off the plane after 5 days in Ibiza, the island of hedonism and 24 hour party people. Did I party? Yes I did. And I realised how much I miss it. There’s nothing better than dancing ’til dawn to incredible music, rocking out and having tonnes of fun. With my raving days behind […]

You crash through the front door, rush upstairs and slam your bedroom door. You hate the world and all it stands for. Except boys, you’re curious about them but you’re too shy to talk, and they don’t know you exist. You blush and run away if they so much as glance over. You’re 13, lost […]

Clearing

Clearing houses Last weekend I was up north in drizzly Liverpool, clearing out my granny’s house, who sadly passed away a few weeks ago. I loved granny. We had an interesting relationship, which improved the more I aged. Granny loved academia, and if she wasn’t intellectually stimulated, she’d quickly lose interest. Hence why we improved […]

We all have our ‘off’ days Days we feel disconnected from everything and everyone. If you’re feeling emotional, sensitive, overwhelmed, fidgety (or all of the above) right now, I’m with you and you are not alone. I feel like i’m stuck in a deep, dark hole which is slowly caving in, with me in it. […]
