Smuggy

Thanks to the Quarter Life Crisis, I've been so busy writing about when things go wrong in life, nothing prepared me for when things started going right. Mum: Hannah, there's a 6ft handsome man at the door with chocolate cake. *SILENCE* Me opening the door to my boyfriend when he made my favourite cake: It's… Continue reading Smuggy

Excuse me, there’s a greenfly in my Quinoa

Having spent 2018 scrolling through food stories on Instagram, it's no surprise that we've been welcomed into 2019 by vegetables. If, like me, you slept through the new year and only woke up to watch Birdbox, now is the time to Google 'Veganuary'. Girls Think I’m Funny Apparently, everyone has participated in the world's healthiest… Continue reading Excuse me, there’s a greenfly in my Quinoa

Reader, I bought it (and now I regret it)

It was only the other day, when I was online shopping-not-shopping, I somehow pressed the 'order now, have it tomorrow!' button. As it turns out, the power of persuasion really doesn't make your dreams comes true... But it does bring you an unnecessary and probably not environmentally sustainable fancy dress costume. Friend: "what have you… Continue reading Reader, I bought it (and now I regret it)

To be or not to be … what was the question?

A little while ago, a friend asked me if I wanted to be in a play. Thanks to the 'I wonder what would happen if' attitude I've adopted during my 20's, I thought about it for half a second before saying "fuck it, why not". The Midult I was expecting to feel nervous during the… Continue reading To be or not to be … what was the question?

QLC to room 101 please

You know you're an adult when doctor appointments become less 'help me, I have a cold' and more 'welcome to the party, here are my organs'. *You should probably stop reading now if you're squeamish.* The Midult But there's definitely no room for shyness when you're having an MOT on your reproductive system. If you're… Continue reading QLC to room 101 please

Alexa, please get me a light switch

Having grown up in the medieval days of dialling up the internet, I find it hard to believe that in 2018 there's more technology in a smartphone than in the first spaceship sent to the moon. AND harder to believe that I've mostly used this technology to do Buzzfeed quizzes to find out what type… Continue reading Alexa, please get me a light switch

It’s time to begin, so count me in … 5,6,7 oh I give up

There comes a point in adulthood when your hopes and dreams are met with reality... "When I grow up I want to be fairly good at Excel from 9 to 5 and shove as much food as I can in my face during my lunch break" - said no one ever *proceeds to do this… Continue reading It’s time to begin, so count me in … 5,6,7 oh I give up

I Do … (want dessert)

I recently wrote about the reality of breaking-up - the chore of untagging yourself from endless holiday photos and figuring out who should get custody of the pug-patterned oven gloves (me) and the toaster (also me). But once the initial crappery of the situation has passed, the time comes to face the world again and… Continue reading I Do … (want dessert)

Oops I did it again

Every year, like most people, I have a birthday. And every year, grateful to have made it through to the 'next round', I face the same battle between 'call me Beyoncé' and 'well this is embarrassing, let's pretend I'm not here and go back to our normal lives' If this year is anything to go… Continue reading Oops I did it again

Stop interrupting my grinding

Girls Think I'm Funny The Quarter Life Crisis wouldn't be complete without a messy break-up - followed by tears, cocktails, wine, more cocktails, therapy and an unwelcome appreciation for Celine Dion. While the world is full of pressure to meet the 'one' (the one who won't blue tick you on WhatsApp), if something isn't right… Continue reading Stop interrupting my grinding
