THIS is one post that I never dreamed that I’d be writing. Nor is it one that I hope anyone needs to read. But I’m writing it, because sadly, this is something that has recently happened to me which means, in all probability, it could happen to any of us at any time. I’ve experienced being truly gossiped and talked about twice in my life.
I’M not a fan of the list generally. Just so you’re clear. Yep they’re useful and pretty handy but they always give me the ‘fear’ that I’ll never have enough time to get everything done. Or ‘the guilt’ when I don’t manage to tick everything off my list. But recently I’ve decided that I need a list in my life. And that, my friend, you do too! This list that I’m
REMEMBER that Agony Aunt idea I had? Well it’s come to fruition my friends and I couldn’t be more thrilled. (Or nervous.) I put the idea out there and the emails have come. The first one that landed in my inbox was this one. I found it hidden in my spam box and when I read it, I don’t think I breathed until I’d come to the end of the

It’s OK to not be OK, really it is but there is help out
BEING a blogger is wonderful. Life changing, confidence building and a hell of a lot of fun too. It helps you learn new skills, it pulls out of you talents that you never knew you had and it forces you to up your game. But. (There’s always a but right?!) It’s hard. Like seriously hard.

It’s not a rule that is set in stone, but it goes a little bit like this… Hurt me once, and I’ll forgive you. Hurt me twice, and I’ll forgive you. But I will consider your behaviour more carefully. Hurt me three times, and I’ll forgive you. But I
I WAS at University when my ‘best’ friend delivered a scathing comment. “What has happened to you? I mean look at you! You used to be so glamorous!” From that statement, you’re probably imagining all sorts right? Had I ‘let myself go’? Was I on drugs? Had I not washed my hair?! No, no, no. I’d simply turned up to greet my friend at the train station wearing jeans, a
