29 | Another Bloody Lockdown Edition

I can’t say I ever expected to have two lockdown birthdays in my lifetime, but here we are. Despite that, my 29th birthday on the 4th May was still a good one, and this year, since discovering and falling in love with Baby Yoda - sorry, Grogu - I didn’t even mind that people were… Continue reading 29 | Another Bloody Lockdown Edition

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

3 Kitties and a Pooch

It’s no secret that I love animals. I’m that person at a party where, if there’s a dog or a cat, I will disappear at some point and just sit there smoothing and talking to them. I once sat singing Mr Brightside to my friends’ family dog at a New Year’s Eve party because she… Continue reading 3 Kitties and a Pooch

Reaching Out to Loved Ones During Lockdown | Brew Monday 2021

The third January of every month is classed as Blue Monday - statistically, the most depressing day of the year. General reasons for that could be because we’re all a bit down following the Christmas festivities, no one has any money following Christmas and the long run up to payday, and the weather is a… Continue reading Reaching Out to Loved Ones During Lockdown | Brew Monday 2021

December 2020 Wrap Up

So here it is, my final wrap up of the absolute piece of crap that was 2020. I’ll be honest, again, not much happened given the restrictions that we were under (thankfully we were only tier 2, now tier 3), so I feel this will be a rather short wrap up. I’m honestly so done… Continue reading December 2020 Wrap Up

June 2020 Wrap Up

I can’t actually believe we’re over halfway through the year now. It’s been an interesting one. I for one am looking forward to how utterly shitfaced I’m going to get on new year’s eve this year, as I’m sure the rest of the UK - and indeed, the world - will. Out of all the… Continue reading June 2020 Wrap Up

Summer Throwbacks

I originally wrote this post back in Summer 2020, when Covid-19 had fucked up pretty much all of our summers. Some of us managed to get away and enjoy a staycation or two, while others were lucky enough to get a cheeky trip abroad before they brought in quarantine rules - however, we did none… Continue reading Summer Throwbacks

Lockdown Silver Linings

I’ve seen a few of these posts over the last couple of weeks so I’ve decided to create my own. While the COVID-19 pandemic has well and truly fucked EVERYTHING up, a good way to keep our sanity can be to have a look at the silver linings of what lockdown has meant for us.… Continue reading Lockdown Silver Linings

28 | Quarantine Edition

The 4th of May was my 28th birthday. As I write this I’m feeling that post-birthday comedown and feeling quite sad that it’s over for another year. Spending my birthday in quarantine wasn’t particularly the celebration I expected, but overall, I had the best day. In spite of everything, it was one of the best… Continue reading 28 | Quarantine Edition

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
