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

Lessons From Lockdown: 8 Things I’ve Learned One Year On

I’m writing this post on the 23rd March 2021. Today marks a year since Boris announced that we were going into lockdown here in the UK. At 12pm, there was a minute's silence to remember everyone who had lost their lives as a result of Covid-19 pandemic. I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one… Continue reading Lessons From Lockdown: 8 Things I’ve Learned One Year On

My TV Highlights of 2020

2020 was definitely a year that heavily utilised our Netflix/Amazon Prime subscriptions.

November 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.

May 2020 Wrap Up

I don’t know about anyone else, but despite the fact we’ve been in lockdown for the whole thing, May has actually been a pretty fast month. As of the 1st June, we're allowed to meet in small groups of 6 as long as it's outdoors. Great for those gagging to get the BBQ out, not… Continue reading May 2020 Wrap Up

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

Anxious Ramblings 5 | Contamination OCD and the Coronavirus Pandemic 2: Electric Boogaloo

It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about the C-word properly in relation to my mental health, but as lockdown rules are very slowly being lifted (or at least, they are at the time of writing), I feel it’s probably time to address it again. In honesty, not much not has happened since you know...lockdown. My… Continue reading Anxious Ramblings 5 | Contamination OCD and the Coronavirus Pandemic 2: Electric Boogaloo
