You know you're an adult when weekends are less 'vodka shots' and more 'cleaning the kitchen counters for the millionth time that week'. Me: where did all the crumbs come from?!Also me: *eats copious amounts of peanut butter on toast* Some people run marathons at the weekend (for fun?!) others, like me, partake in the… Continue reading Bog Standard
Once upon a time, you'd find me at the bar questioning my life choices. Nowadays, I’m in the hardware shop questioning why all my money is spent on sanding blocks and door knobs. I recently moved in to a new house with my husband. If I’m not frantically battling the steam mop, I’m trawling through… Continue reading What a tool

Thanks to this ridiculousness, women have adopted a Pankhurst-inspired energy to embrace life when things don’t work out by this grand old age.

If, like me, you wore dental braces through school (complete with bushy hair and an oversized backpack), you'll remember the pain well. So, I was disappointed to… Continue reading Brace Face
Thanks to the global pandemic, we live by one rule - stay at home and watch Netflix (in your pj's and eat all the snacks). So it goes without saying that we shouldn’t put ourselves in situations where we might need to go to hospital. To be fair, Covid or no Covid, that's quite a… Continue reading Stairway to A&E
There's nothing like a social media 'engagement' post to really put you off the Internet. But there's nothing like being the one who posted it (guilty). Having spent all of Christmas Eve in my pyjamas, I was intrigued to notice my boyfriend put on his best (and only) shirt for the evening. In a bid… Continue reading All Grown Up (ish)
