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.

TDYLN 0104 – House About That (3 June 2018)

It was my day off so I decided that whilst I was doing laundry I would record a show.

Talking about interacting with people, self created fear, future photoshoots, future topics, my energy levels, selling my underwear and an ongoing shoulder injury.

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!

Learning to Lifeguard

I’m on day 2 of a 6 day lifeguarding course and it’s kicking my arse like I’ve never had it kicked before, but I’m loving it and I’m proving to myself that I can do things that I thought weren’t possible!

Working Away

I got sent to Lincoln for work this weekend and I recorded a bit of a random vlog whilst there and trying to find my way back home!

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.

What Happened?!

Since my last video, I’ve had a number of people have asking why I was in hospital and what happened. Here’s the full story.


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.

Inebriated (LIVE)

Well yesterday Tom and I visited the Cambridge Beer Festival and then went out in town afterwards and got wasted…at some point I thought it would be a good idea […]

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.

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.

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 […]
