2017 – What The Hell Was That?

Well, 2017 has been a weird old year, hasn’t it? I mean, it started out with good intentions - despite a questionable entry to New Year’s Day that involved about eighteen beers, a few very strong passion fruit martinis, waking up in a room I’d never seen before, vomiting continuously into an orange B&Q bucket, … Continue reading 2017 – What The Hell Was That?

6 Things Dating A Barista Has Taught Me.

I don’t know anything about coffee.

I seem … Continue reading I Don’t Really Know How To Feel About  Valentine’s Day

I made my own “welcome back” banners.

Hello. I've had this blog since around about 2009. At the time, I was about 16 and addicted to Tumblr - and would probably have described myself as a "blogger", even though all I was doing was hitting the "re-blog" button on photos and witty posts that other people had created. These days, I'm twenty-two. … Continue reading I made my own “welcome back” banners.
