Things #10

Thought I try to “reboot” my things posts because it’s a nice way for me to share things I’ve found or discovered online recently, so without further ado!

Mental Health and Me

Mental Health and Me

Mental health shouldn’t be stigmatised or taboo but there are still people that believe that it’s something that shouldn’t be talked about or shared, I hope that by sharing my own story and experiences that I can help contribute in some way to eliminating the stigmas.


This blog post was written on so many different days and over a course of a couple of months and I didn’t just want to just delete it so I thought I’d try to make it into something…not sure what that something is but I want to get it out of my drafts and into the world…so….enjoy?!


I haven’t blogged, vlogged or podcasted in fucking ages and I’ve almost been avoiding doing so…

Other Places

I want to take this opportunity to share all of my online and social media links because I’m fairly active all over and want to make sure you guys can follow me in different places.

Tumblr Censorship

So already pretty much my whole Tumblr is flagged as explicit and will be removed or made private from the 17th December – I’m trying to think of the positives […]


I’ve not composed a post on here for a while and I’m not quite sure how to kickoff but I have this real sense of being overdue

School Reunion

So today I received an invitation to a school reunion and in the past my initial reaction would’ve been to decline the invite immediately and get on with my life but this time I actually decided to confirm my attendance.

The 3 Day Blog

I started writing a blog post on Monday and it became a weird multi-day post, not my original plan but I did state that I didn’t know what direction it was going to go in!

2017 : A Review

2017 has been a big year for me, at the beginning of the year I challenged myself to come out of my comfort zone as much possible and I think I actually did so…

Early Start

I thought I’d use the time I have spare whilst travelling to London to blog a little 😊

Life Admin

In 7 days time I will be moving house and so today I spent a few hours doing some life admin

Things #8

Almost two years since I last posted a “Things” post, mainly because I forgot I used to do them!

Half Asleep

This morning I thought the first thing I’d do before I got out of bed and to get ready for work would be to write a blog.


I was going to try to post a blog post daily and obviously that’s not happened but I still want to post as regularly as I can going forward so allow me to recap on the last week or so.


Both times I’ve been abroad, I come home feeling like I want to travel somewhere again


Not a particularly interesting blog today but I wanted to make sure I kept up with the daily posts this month.


I remember back in the day when I used to blog whilst I was in a situation that was boring me shitless, such as being stuck on a bus in […]

Last Weekend

Last weekend I took a trip to London for the evening to have a night out at XXL and it was such an incredible weekend.


It’s important to me to document or at least capture when I have moments like this



The wonderful Carl has been writing his most recent blogs in the following style and I like it so much I thought I’d do the same because it’s a great […]


XXL Bears 2016

Last Saturday was one of the best days of my life so far. I’m going to recall the whole experience in a diary style way of writing!


With everything that’s going on in the world, you’d think that people might be less judgemental


I’ve taken a break from social media and my phone this evening. I’m finding everything that’s happening in the world right now so overwhelming and I need some disconnection and a little time to collect my thoughts.

Hobbling to Hospital

So because I’ve not really seen an improvement in my ankle I thought it was best to seek the advice of my doctor, even though the prospect of having to […]

Don’t Be An Arsehole!

I’m not someone who usually blocks people on social media but recently I’ve had to block several people due to stuff they’ve done or said.

Loves, Like & Pokemon

When you haven’t written a blog for a while it can sometimes be a little harder to start writing a post but I thought I’d just go for it and […]

Kill The Grump

It’s interesting yet frustrating to know that the actions of one or two people can really get under your skin.


If there’s one thing that I am really passionate about, it’s the empowerment of other people.

Storm Barney!

I’m sat here by my window as the 70-80 mph winds make my windows rattle, the trees outside are taking a battering and the noises of the gusts are pretty […]

Oh, Daddy!

Yesterday I was referred to as DADDY on one of apps I use and at first I was a little amused because this was the first time I’d ever been called it – and then […]


The horrendous events in France are abhorrent and saddening, lives were lost and changed forever, such evil in the world.

Dressed Up

Today is Children in Need day, a day that people use to dress up, sit in baths of beans, do sponsored silences and so on to raise money for Children […]


Blogging is something I’ve done since 2004 and I love doing it and as some of you may have noticed I’m blogging on a much more regular basis, it’s nice […]


The last few days I’ve been having really weird dreams, today’s was the weirdest one yet!

One Year On

A year ago I started working at my current job, I didn’t know what to expect or if I was going to be any good at the job or if […]

Things #5

Trying to make THINGS a more regular thing now, so it’s time for me to share a few….THINGS!

No Internet

I was planning on doing something slightly different for  but seeing as our broadband internet isn’t working I thought I’d just turn this into a bit of a rant.

The Unfriend

I woke up this morning and was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and then I went into the “Friends” bit and then looked at contacts to see if any of […]


Yesterday was a good day. This is going to be a “what I did” type post, nothing exciting, unless I lie and make a version so unbelievable that you all think […]

Do I Have A Type?

You find it with the majority of people online who when either looking for a partner or a hookup, they’ll be fairly rigid with what type of person they are […]

Open Relationships Work

So for those of you that aren’t aware (you will be by the time you’ve read this blog post!), Tom and I are in an open relationship and have been for […]

Taking Stock

It’s important to keep document of your life, whether it’s in the form of a journal, a blog or some other medium


The other night (Wednesday) I got to reconnect with a person who I thought I’d lost because my own stupid ways of dealing with hard times in my life.

Tummy Trouble

After not eating bread 🍞 for many weeks and benefiting from not doing so in quite a few ways, I ate some yesterday evening – I will not sugar the […]

How To Break The Silence

One thing that annoys me about myself is that sometimes I completely lose track of the time since I last spoke to friends until that time becomes to big to just say “Hi!”

Do It For You

A lot of people when venturing on a new diet or healthy routine decide to share it with the world on social media, maybe there’s an accountability aspect to doing […]


I don’t think there’s anything more frustrating and painful as backache, ok maybe toothache but backache is up there.

Trying Out Blogsy

For years I’ve either used the official WordPress app to post blogs to my site or I’ve just logged on via my computer and done so, today I’m trying out […]

Things #2

Another week has just gone and it’s time again to share with you some things I’ve found!

Things #1

A Day At The Beach

Yesterday my boyfriend Tom and I decided to go back to the coast and spend the day at the beach, we woke up nice and early at 5am to leave […]

Let’s go to the Beach

I just had my 30th birthday (14 July) and my boyfriend booked a perfect weekend away in Southwold which is a beautiful and peaceful coastal town on the Norfolk coast.


I’ve been putting off writing a blog for a while, for numerous reasons but I find that once I start putting fingers to keys then the release is there and […]

It’s Time

I can’t believe that come July I shall be turning 30, I remember leaving school thinking that 2014 was so far away and that being 30 would be so old […]

The Untitled Update

I’m going to start off writing this blog post without a title, a title means I’d have to stick to a subject or path and I feel that this is […]
