Flying the nest

The other day my mum looked at me with tears in her eyes and said "you've finally flown the nest". I didn't want to break the bad news to her and Dad that I hadn't actually moved out. In fact, I was busy sitting on their sofa, watching their TV and eating my way through… Continue reading Flying the nest

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

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)

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

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

Ready, Steady, wait until the smoke alarm goes off and you know it’s cooked

Girls Think I'm Funny Has anyone else noticed that their social media feeds and TV channels are clogged up with people telling us to do more with food than just eat it? While I'm busy ordering Deliveroo to cure my hangover, foodies galore are telling me how to cook the perfect asparagus brunch and then… Continue reading Ready, Steady, wait until the smoke alarm goes off and you know it’s cooked

Netflix and a well deserved nap

I recently discovered that my boyfriend doesn't know the meaning of 'Netflix and Chill'.  Apparently when you're a proper adult, the meaning of 'chill' goes no further than seeing how many Pringles and cookies it's acceptable to eat on a Sunday while watching endless episodes of Storage Wars - then having a well deserved nap.… Continue reading Netflix and a well deserved nap
