Lessons From the Classroom – Maths

It’s time for my next instalment of Lessons From the Classroom, and it’s a beefy one. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that maths was never my strong point. Today, I’m delving into all of those repressed memories of that little wonky-toothed bespectacled child who never quite understood anything beyond… Continue reading Lessons From the Classroom – Maths

Lessons From the Classroom – English

I recently discovered a folder full of my old school reports - literally from reception right up to my final year of sixth form. My Mum kept them all over the years and gave me the folder a few years ago, and I only just came across it again. One evening, I got a bit… Continue reading Lessons From the Classroom – English

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

The Therapy Diaries

The Therapy Diaries 7 | High Intensity CBT

It’s hard to believe I’m on part seven of my Therapy Diaries series. Take from that what you will - I’ve had A LOT of therapy. Anyway, at the present time, this is going to be the last in the series! During my last instalment, we actually rewound a few years and went back to… Continue reading The Therapy Diaries 7 | High Intensity CBT

Tattoo Tales

I’ve written about my experience getting my first tattoo as part of my 30 Before 30 series (which btw, I’m SMASHING...jks I’ve done sweet FA throughout 2020 and the early part of 2021), but I wanted to share a bit more about why I chose them and the meanings behind each one. I’ve wanted a… Continue reading Tattoo Tales

A Letter to My Younger Self

When I was first looking at ideas for my blog, this was one of the suggestions that kept popping up. I've attempted to write this a few times, but I struggled. What age did I write to? Was I writing to prepare them for what was to come or was I writing to them to… Continue reading A Letter to My Younger Self

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

Reminiscing With Some Old Outfits

This weekend was my sixth monthly wardrobe sort out. It’s a task I hate doing but it was getting to the point where I was having to force things in there, so what with the warmer weather coming in this week, I thought it was a good time to get cracking. My usual thing is… Continue reading Reminiscing With Some Old Outfits
