It's only 75 days until Christmas, and I am hyped! Yes, I'm afraid I am one of those annoying, jolly people who want to celebrate Christmas 365 days a year. There's nothing like nights by the fire, or the smell of Baileys drifting between the flickering fairy lights at the markets. I swear, as soon … Continue reading I’m a northerner, I swear!
Hola, mon petite amigos! (Somewhere out there, a linguistic person is having a fit, and I take pride in that.) This week has been a busy one, when I've not been hating my life working as an adult, I've been packing ready to move. The amount of spiders I have found taking refuge in my … Continue reading I write gins, not tragedies!
This is unusual for me, but I'm just going to leave a little warning here that in this post I will be talking about the - uh - delicate area of a woman's body. But now that I've done that, I would like to welcome you back to my blog! As usual, nothing much has … Continue reading The most awkward hospital visit
Weddings. The day (or days, if you're that extra) where your whole family gets together to celebrate your love and gift you things.

I'm doing something pretty different this week, which has taken a bit longer to … Continue reading The shaver of hope & dreams (Kind of)
Good evening, and welcome back to another post about Lucie's tragic life. Lucie actually feels like life is tragic right now, as she is on a diet. *Duh, duh duuuuuh* She is sugaring separation anxiety after she parted ways with cheese, carbs and (the biggest loss) chocolate. Now, I'm not that unhealthy for someone that … Continue reading The diet of death and destruction
Good evening, my loyal followers. (Wow, I sound like I'm the leader of a cult. Maybe that's the career I should be looking at?) I come to you today with no antics. I haven't done anything but work, and am somehow still skint. I have never been more of a millenial. Speaking of being a … Continue reading The never-ending fianceè
Why, hello there fellow humans! I'm pretty excited to announce I have a new surname... Just call me Miss Spontaneous because I went on an unplanned trip to Manchester! I mean, I guess it's not that spontaneous but as a planner with anxiety, these things don't happen often. But there I was, 8am on a … Continue reading Sushi is nasty – Change my mind.
Do you ever just have one of those days when you feel like the world is actually ending, and everything is spiralling out of control and every single thing makes you want to explode? I'm having one of those days. At first, I thought I'd just suddenly lost all (and by all I mean the … Continue reading The difference between a Hamburger and Cheeseburger
So, you've been at work all week. Sweating it out, earning the money that you need to survive. You look forward to the moment you can get home, switch on the TV and chill with your favourite characters. Except we all know, this is not the week to chill. I would just like to point … Continue reading A week of emotional trauma – How to prepare yourself for Avengers: Endgame and Game of Thrones.
