The Hallotober Bloggers Tag

If you’ve been reading my blog from the start, you’ll know that I bloody love a blogger tag. I was recently nominated by Tom at The Doubting Thomas for the “Hallotober” Blogger Tag for the first time, and I’m rather excited to be writing what’s probably my first ever Halloween themed blog! (Haunted) House Rules… Continue reading The Hallotober Bloggers Tag

Monthly Wrap Ups

September 2020 Wrap Up

It finally feels like I’m getting back into some sort of routine with my blog - it’s only taken me two months, but I’m very slowly getting there! I’m still not quite up to date with my monthly wrap ups, but again, I’m getting there. September has certainly been a much better month, and a… Continue reading September 2020 Wrap Up

August 2020 Wrap Up

Hey friends - hope you’re all good! By the time you’re reading this I will hopefully be back into the swing of things with my post schedule, but as I’m writing this, I’m still desperately trying to queue up some content so I don’t get so behind again. You may end up reading my August… Continue reading August 2020 Wrap Up

Craft Gin Club - September 2020

Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | September 2020

The arrival of my September Craft Gin Club box was a welcome addition to the booze cupboard in my new house, especially given that I’d essentially rinsed my current supply as a result of the house move. September’s offering is inspired by enchanted forests, mythical legends and magical creatures, with a spiced, citrus flavoured gin… Continue reading Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | September 2020

Anxious Ramblings 6 | Contamination OCD & the Coronavirus Pandemic 3: Surely It Should Be Over By Now?

It’s been a while since I did an OCD-covid related check-in, so I thought with it being OCD Awareness Week this week, it would be an idea to post one. A lot has happened since my last OCD update - I’ve been getting out a lot more, I’ve seen a few more friends and fam,… Continue reading Anxious Ramblings 6 | Contamination OCD & the Coronavirus Pandemic 3: Surely It Should Be Over By Now?

What Is OCD? | OCD Awareness Week 2020

October is a big month mental health wise. Not only was last week World Mental Health Day, this week is OCD Awareness Week. Spoiler alert: I have OCD. To put it politely, it’s a complete and utter fucking ballache. I’ve written quite a few times now about how my brain works with contamination based OCD,… Continue reading What Is OCD? | OCD Awareness Week 2020

The Therapy Diaries 5 | Long Waits and Too Many Assessments

After a bit of a break, The Therapy Diaries is back! While we’re coming up to my most recent brush with my local mental health service, I felt that I wanted to do a post around the journey that led up to it, as it was certainly a stressful one. Of course, my previous experience… Continue reading The Therapy Diaries 5 | Long Waits and Too Many Assessments

Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | August 2020

I’ll be honest, August’s craft gin subscription box has been somewhat overshadowed this month. Not surprisingly, the whole buying a house thing impacted my focus on what the August box had to offer, but that’s weird in a way, especially considering that in the week running up to the move I was essentially 90% gin.… Continue reading Craft Gin Club Subscription Box Review | August 2020

Five Lessons I Learned Buying My First House | 30 Before 30

In August 2020, we moved into our brand new house. After a very shaky start, with a lot of uncertainty throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we suddenly found things going full throttle when it came to moving. Our sale suddenly completed, and we had two weeks to pack up our current property and get the hell… Continue reading Five Lessons I Learned Buying My First House | 30 Before 30
