29 Lessons

This post is becoming somewhat of a birthday tradition. I started this coming up to my 27th birthday, and I’ve updated the post each year after. It’s interesting looking back on last year’s post - as my naïve little self had been hoping lockdown would have been over by the time my birthday on the… Continue reading 29 Lessons

28 Lessons

Well. I don't think anyone with a birthday from March onwards expected to be celebrating in lockdown. Call me naive, but I had my cold little gin soaked heart set on this lockdown at least being eased in time for my birthday on the 4th May. But, it wasn’t to be. Don’t get me wrong,… Continue reading 28 Lessons

Lessons I Learned in My First Year of Blogging

It’s hard to believe that I have officially been running (is that the right word?) Sassy Cat Lady for a whole year. As some of you may know, this was not my first attempt at blogging. There were several unsuccessful attempts in the past, mainly because I gave up too soon. No one was reading… Continue reading Lessons I Learned in My First Year of Blogging

Breaking Up with Psychology | Part 1

Looking at where I am now, it’s hard to believe that I once had dreams to become a therapist. I hate 90% of the general public and I have a whole batch of my own issues that would single handedly make any therapist sorted financially for life. Over the years I’ve dipped in and out… Continue reading Breaking Up with Psychology | Part 1

House Drama: What the Actual F Has Been Going On

So, at the beginning of the year when I started my blog, my husband and I were planning on being in our new house by this time now. Unfortunately, that never happened. After far too many delays and being hugely messed around, the possibility of our new house disappeared. Back in February, I mentioned very… Continue reading House Drama: What the Actual F Has Been Going On

How to Pass a Driving Test: My Tips for Anxious Learners

This time ten years ago, I never imagined passing my driving test. To be fair, I was right, as I didn’t actually pass until two years later. I had my first driving lesson in May 2009, and I eventually passed my test in September 2011, two weeks before my theory test expired. I remember sitting… Continue reading How to Pass a Driving Test: My Tips for Anxious Learners

So for a special birthday post, I’ve compiled a list of 27 things I’ve learned in my 27 years. Enjoy, and maybe even… Continue reading 27 Lessons

Lessons I Learned at University

In July 2019, it was 6 years since I graduated from university. It feels weird to think that I've now been adulting for that long - and when is it acceptable to stop calling yourself a graduate? Asking for a friend. The generic "tossing your cap into the air" photo. Anyone who knows me will… Continue reading Lessons I Learned at University

Important Lessons I Learned From Working in Retail

So back in 2018 I left my job in retail after a total of 7 years. It all started as a job to give me some extra cash at uni, and it was my fallback when my lack of experience let me down in finding a job actually relevant to my degree. We all know… Continue reading Important Lessons I Learned From Working in Retail
