A Day in the Life

I’ll be honest with you - coming up with ideas for content is hard. So hard in fact, that I spend more of my time searching for content ideas than I do actually writing it. One of the suggestions that keeps coming up in the ideas I’ve found is to write a ‘Day in Your… Continue reading A Day in the Life

My Favourite Mama J Memories | Mother’s Day 2020

Tomorrow here in the UK, it's Mother's Day. I won't lie, it's going to be a pretty shitty one this year. For the first time since I was at uni, I'm unable to see my Mum tomorrow. In fact, I haven't seen her in nearly 3 weeks because she's been poorly and of course, with… Continue reading My Favourite Mama J Memories | Mother’s Day 2020

This is a long overdue response, but back in February I was nominated for my fourth Sunshine Blogger Award by the lovely Charlotte, aka The Wee Writing Lassie.

Anxious Ramblings 4 | Contamination OCD and the Coronavirus Pandemic

I didn’t particularly want to write this post. I didn’t want to taint my blog by talking about the thing that everyone else is talking about. However, as this fucking wanker of a virus is slowly destroying my mental health, I think I need to speak. Of course I’m going to be talking about coronavirus… Continue reading Anxious Ramblings 4 | Contamination OCD and the Coronavirus Pandemic

They Put a Camera Up My Butt: A Painfully Honest Account of What Happens When You Have a Colonoscopy

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that since May last year, I’ve been waiting for a colonoscopy due to some ongoing stomach issues. While I’m totally grateful that we have such an amazing organisation like the NHS, waiting times for stuff like this are bullshit. I was referred in May, I saw a… Continue reading They Put a Camera Up My Butt: A Painfully Honest Account of What Happens When You Have a Colonoscopy

Ten of the Most Badass Female Characters in TV | International Women’s Day 2020

Yesterday was International Women’s Day, so I wanted to mark the occasion with a themed post. Last year, I wrote about some of the most awesome women I admire, and this year I wanted to do something a little different. Given that I virtually do nothing else other than binge watch Netflix, I thought I’d… Continue reading Ten of the Most Badass Female Characters in TV | International Women’s Day 2020

My Five Favourite Children’s Books | World Book Day 2020

I always remember World Book Day being one of my favourite events when I was at school. It appears to now be a much bigger event at schools here in the UK, with kids dressing up as their favourite characters and schools holding huge events and such, but back when I was a kid, I… Continue reading My Five Favourite Children’s Books | World Book Day 2020

February 2020 Wrap Up

Hello all! February has certainly whizzed past and it’s time for another monthly wrap up. All in all this month has been alright - a large chunk of it was spent nursing a sprained wrist while the first week was spent mostly in a heightened state of anxiety due to the upcoming camera-up-the-butt thing. Aside… Continue reading February 2020 Wrap Up
