Listening to podcasts has been a key part of my working from home day for quite a while now, and I’ll be honest, I’m worried how I’ll be able to keep up the momentum when I start my new job. In recent months though, I’ve realised that they’ve not just become part of my WFH… Continue reading Another Four Podcasts You Should Listen To Right Now

I always try and write a themed post around International Women’s Day, but for some reason, I struggled this year to come up with an idea. Thankfully, my brain saved the day at the last minute (for once) and I decided to write a post on my favourite female comedians. If you’ve been with my… Continue reading My Favourite Funny Women | The Best Female Comedians You Should Check Out This International Women’s Day

Four More of The Best Podcasts You Should Listen To Right Now

Last year, I wrote about a selection of podcasts I’d gotten into, including Shagged Married Annoyed with Chris and Rosie Ramsey, and Help I Sexted My Boss with Jordan North and William Hanson. To be honest, the four I listened to were pretty much the only four. However, working from home these last few months… Continue reading Four More of The Best Podcasts You Should Listen To Right Now

My Favourite Live Comedy Performances

When I wrote this post back in 2020, I had been thinking a lot about stand-up comedy and how much of a role it plays in my life. Regular readers of my blog will know that Liam and I make regular trips to comedy gigs (you know, pre-covid of course) and in 2019, we went… Continue reading My Favourite Live Comedy Performances

The Best Podcasts to Listen To Right Now: My Four Top Picks

I was very late to the party with podcasts in that I didn’t start listening to them until about 2 years ago. Podcasts became a firm fixture on our morning commutes once I started my job working in Bath, making the 30-40 minute trip each way a little more bearable. Given the current situation (the… Continue reading The Best Podcasts to Listen To Right Now: My Four Top Picks

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 Favourite Mental Health Portrayals in TV and Film

My own mental health condition means that I tend to take a liking towards films and TV shows that feature mental health themes. Obviously they’re not the only things I watch, but as an ex-psychology student, my curiosity gets the better of me. I’m not sure specifically what the appeal is, but I find the… Continue reading My Favourite Mental Health Portrayals in TV and Film

2019: A Year in Comedy

One thing that my husband and I are known for is our love for stand up comedy. Since 2010, birthday and Christmas gifts have often been in the form of comedy tickets, and it’s meant over the years we’ve seen some of our favourite comedians, including Russell Howard, Lee Evans, and Jimmy Carr. Back in… Continue reading 2019: A Year in Comedy

My Teenage Mixtape

I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I are discovering new podcasts for our commute to work. A particular favourite of ours has been Off Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster, which I wrote a themed post on a while back.

My Dream Meal As Inspired by the Off Menu Podcast

If you haven’t heard the Off Menu podcast, I strongly recommend it. Hosted by two of my favourite comedians, Ed Gamble and James Acaster, they interview a guest each week who picks their dream menu, with foods from any meal at any time of their life. Their guests range from fellow comedians to actors and… Continue reading My Dream Meal As Inspired by the Off Menu Podcast
