I haven’t had the internet for over a week. Sadly, with my tech support/Husband overseas, I had to make do with just my data allowance on my sparkly new Nexus 5X, which I very quickly blitzed through. So what have I been doing without my beloved internet? Working I started my new job on Monday … More Every single night, the same arrangement
The last couple of weeks have been… emotional to say the least. On any normal day, there’s usually something that makes me wobble – animals being cute, internet stories being a bit too real, friends and family being adorable – but October has tested my emotional resilience to the max. First up, saying goodbye to … More Last night, I ate the best cake of my life
Thursday felt like an insanely long day. It was the penultimate day of Ryan, Tim, Husband, and my Work Week Hustle Fitbit Challenge and I was determined not to be last (Tim and Husband were in a whole other league to Ryan and I). As it turns out, the 20,000 steps I did on Thursday nudged me firmly … More We wend our way through the longest part of the day
Last weekend, after our amazing visit to Present and Correct pumped us up, Tim and I decided to have a bit more of a wander around Angel and Islington. I really liked what we find. Really liked it. I’ve said before that I’m not a big fan of London but everything about this area appealed … More Stumbling through irrelevant crowds to make their rendezvous
Finally, the Prince Charles Cinema got ahold of the Veronica Mars Movie, so I of course jumped at the opportunity to see the film in my favourite cinema seat in the UK. Tim was kind enough to come with me, despite the fact the poor lamb seemed exhausted, and I met him after work in Soho … More You got spirit, yes you do!
I live about half an hour away from Thorpe Park so when when the idea of a trip comes up, it’s quite easy to say yes. Especially when there’s the promise of a free trip. Some kind of witchcraft was done and a pass was produced that let us get in without paying – amazing! … More In fact, it was decreed by its creator that this place shall never age
A couple of months ago, I was sat in a conference hall in Manchester listening to a very important man talk about very important things, whilst sneaking a look at Twitter. Tim and Rach were in the middle of a conversation about Coronation Street tour tickets going on sale, and because I don’t know how … More You’re Norman Bates with a briefcase
In the bright spring sunshine, I took a drive to see my BFF’s brand new amazing digs in south London. I donated a vintage Poang (yes, vintage), had a nosey around, poured a bucket of scorn on his bookshelf organisation, and we then went for a wander to explore his new neighbourhood. And I love his … More Let the seasons turn
The past few weeks have exhausted me. And tragically, the chores are not complete yet because we have bought a new kitchen. This is extraordinarily exciting, but it’s also led to the almost GUTTING of the rest of the house, as we very quickly have to find temporary homes for the current contents of our … More Restaurants are minefields for the socially inept
Last night was the 9th Prince Charles Cinema Pyjama Party, and the theme this time was Christmas films. I haven’t been to a PJ party for ages, and unfortunately, I appear to be out of practice as I slept through about half of it. TERRIBLE! I clearly had not re-read the tips for how to … More Grace, put yourself down for a towel too.
