Time Of The Month – February 2017

Hello and welcome to a new series – a monthly round up of events. I’ve never been a big one for diaries, partly because, when I was 15 the boy I like found mine and read it out to everyone (if you’re reading this, fuck you Danny!) and partly because I’m a talker – I […]

Starting Slimming World (Again) – A Beginners Guide

It has been three years since I started Slimming World. I know loads about it, and it works for me very well. Over the last six months though, my habits have been slipping.

Trip to Thailand – Part 1, Khao Lak

I've just come back from my very delayed honeymoon! Did you miss me? Why do you mean, you didn't notice I'd gone because I'm a wildly inconsistent blogger? Rude. Like almost everyone I know who got married this year, we did two weeks in Thailand as our honeymoon and it was so so blissful. Neither … Continue reading Trip to Thailand – Part 1, Khao Lak
