The Covid Crisis · The Ongoing Crisis

All Grown Up (ish)

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)

‘Tis the Season – to be wondering what the f*** 2020 was all about

2020 has been the gift that keeps on giving - except you didn't ask for it and can't return it because it didn't come with a receipt. For a lot of us, Christmas this year will be like no other - but also exactly like every day of the year since March (pyjamas all day,… Continue reading ‘Tis the Season – to be wondering what the f*** 2020 was all about

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
