MAKE 2016 YOUR YEAR, TO BE KIND, TO YOU

I DON’T believe in New Year resolutions. I don’t like the pressure, the feeling that we’re all somehow not good enough or the expectation that we all need to change something. However. All that aside, I do absolutely, hand on heart, totally and utterly adore New Year and the inescapable buzz of transformation, hope and excitement that hangs in the air. Because whilst I don’t believe in making a mammoth

HELP & SUPPORT OVER THE FESTIVE PERIOD

I KNOW life isn’t always easy. I know some days can feel like the worst kind of struggle. I know Christmas – which is supposed to be the most magical time of the year – can feel more hellish than heavenly. I do. I get it. But…I need you to know this. You are NOT alone. It’s OK to not be OK, really it is but there is help out

FIVE THINGS TO THINK ABOUT THIS CHRISTMAS

IT’s nearly here. The big day! The day every child in the land is excitedly waiting for. The day that comes with all the expectations, all the hopes and all the stress. The day that many people are longing for. The day that many other people will be dreading. Christmas Day. For most of us there will be presents, a turkey dinner, booze and plenty of it. (If we’re lucky.) However

ISN’T IT TIME WE GAVE ALL WOMEN A CHANCE?

A FEW weeks ago, I was blatantly ignored by a group of women. I smiled, said hello and looked around the room, waiting for a group of women, whom I didn’t know, to respond. But nothing came. (Talk about awkward.) For a second or two, I thought perhaps they haven’t heard me or that someone, anyone, in the crowded room would shoot me a friendly smile any time soon. But

LIFE & STUFF (AKA WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO RECENTLY)

IT’S frantic isn’t it this time of year? So much to do, so little time? When we’re all supposed to fit everything in, I have absolutely no idea but still we can only do what we can do right?! (Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself.) I’ve been up to all sorts of late, of the lovely variety, so I thought I’d share what’s been filling up my days

CAN WE JUST QUIT WITH THE BULLS**T? (AKA FAKERY)

I DON’T know what’s happened to me over the past few months. But I do know this. No longer can I stand fakery. No longer can I stand the not so sweet smell of bulls**t that seems to linger pretty much everywhere these days. Do you know what I mean?! I’ve talked about it a few times on my blog previously. About the importance of being honest and authentic. And

A STAY AT THE GREAT VICTORIA HOTEL, BRADFORD

A NIGHT alone? In a hotel? Without little Elsie? Well that’s something of a rare treat for the husband and I, so we were thrilled to be invited to stay at the Great Victoria hotel in Bradford just last month. We had a smashing time. Relaxed lots. Ate lots. Drank lots. And even managed a bit of a lie in too. But enough about what we go up to (although I’ll

LIFE STUFF I STILL NEED TO LEARN AS I TURN 36 (!)

I KNOW nothing. Ok, so maybe not nothing but definitely, very little. If I was an owl, I would be rubbish, because you know they’re supposed to be wise and well, I’m far from that. Yet. It’s my birthday tomorrow and I will be turning the ripe young age of 36. And so, last night when I was thinking what to write about today, I thought, I know! I’ll share
