My boyfriend has swanned off to visit his dad for the weekend and I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit in the house on my own watching crappy telly with the dog. Having said that I’m not one for going out too much so I decided that a happy compromise would be to just invite a friend over to sit on the sofa and … Continue reading Bubbles, beer and a BBQ | 15/06/17
Todays writing prompt encourages me to do something even more different to yesterday, today’s challenge is a poem! I cannot remember the last time I wrote a poem, let alone a decent one, let’s be honest, that has probably never happened! That being said, I’m going to give it a go. Since I’m not a poet (and I know it!) I have googled ‘what is … Continue reading Sonnet | 14/07/17
When I was looking through my list of writing prompts, one that really stuck out to me was ‘the rocket ship.’ It reminded me of a short story that I wrote when I was younger and I used to write a lot of short (usually not too good) stories. I’m surprised that I even remembered any of this since it was so long ago and … Continue reading The Rocket Ship | 13/07/17
I want to write more posts on this little blog of mine, however I’m fully aware that it’s pretty boring for me to write ‘work, dinner, bed’ every day, and I’m sure it’s even more boring for you to read it! I’ve finally come up with a solution to this so I’ve decided to take on the ‘365 creative writing prompts’ challenge. I still want … Continue reading Beach Inspired | 12/07/17
As much as I resent my boyfriend for waking me up at 5am this morning, I am bursting with pride as I know today is the day that he gets his masters degree. It’s taken two tough years, thousands of pounds, tears, arguments and millions of words but I could not be more proud of him. Its full of these emotions that I drag myself … Continue reading Con-grad-ulations! | 11/07/17
As the name would suggest, I spent the weekend at a local festival with my family. It was lovely to head home for a few days, not stress about my work and enjoy spending time with my family. I had lots of fun playing with my god daughter, catching up with the family and watching my brother and sister in law’s wedding videos! I’ve been … Continue reading Family Festival 2017
For as long as I can remember I have heard friends and family talking about Cornwall, the beautiful beaches, the incredible views, the very different night life and it’s general pull. It’s always been on the list of places that I want to get to but, being an English seaside, I’d never gotten around to it. Rewind a few months and my cousin got engaged … Continue reading 9th – 13th June 2017: Cornwall
Saturday 27th May Saturday was a lovely day! We woke up reasonably early before spending some time just chilling in the sunshine. I went to tesco to get croissants, some fresh bread for lunch, alcohol, a new book and a fathers day card. When I got back we had some breakfast and spent the day laying outside in the sun reading our books. Perfect. I cracked open … Continue reading Bank Holiday Weekend!
Today was one of those days where I woke up more tired than I was when I went to sleep, I’m also convinced that my alarm must have gone off a few times before it actually woke me up! Once I was eventually up and ready I headed to work, it felt a bit off since I had been off sick all of last week. … Continue reading Monday 22nd May: Bubbles
Today has been a pretty mundane day, mostly I’ve been very hungover and very tired but I thought that I would still write a post because theres something that I’ve been thinking a lot about today and I wanted to share it with you guys and hopefully get some opinions. Since we had stayed at the reception venue from the wedding we woke up and … Continue reading Sunday 21st May: Going vegan?
