Turning 30

(1) Comments | Posted 23 October 2014 | (21:55)

Thought I'd share on something in the hope that I'm not the only one to feel like it.

I can already hear my older friends grown at the title of this blog. I'll probably get a few "wait until you hit 40/50" comments. And rightly so I guess.

Here's the...

Cat Lovers

A few Thursdays ago (on the 9th October) my cat Gilbert (she's a girl cat with a boy name, get over it, we're retro) went missing.

I let her out at 9pm and instead of her rocking up at 6am at our...

Jim Davidson Called Me a 'Gobby Woman'

THE IRONY.

Last night I went to Casey Batchelor's 30th birthday party. I met her whilst recording a show for BBC3 and she has become a good friend. She is very kind, sweet and funny.

The usual celeb suspects were there, and as a huge fan of Towie/...

Ever Fancy Escaping the City and Getting Some Space?

(0) Comments | Posted 23 September 2014 | (18:27)

I love London. Hard. It makes me happy with its culture, people, diversity, but 'my oh my' sometimes I just need some SPACE. I get home from work (after 8pm usually) and get snug in my small but shockingly expensive one bed flat with the partner and two kids (pets.)...

Tips for Attending The Edinburgh Festival

(0) Comments | Posted 20 August 2014 | (12:07)

Sup. I am back from the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. (I am aware they do more than comedy, but frankly I have never seen a show there not starring a comedian so refuse to admit it, sorry dancers/ actors/ acrobats.)

I am spotty, bloated and exhausted. It is my 5th visit...

How Much Are YOU Worth?

(0) Comments | Posted 10 June 2014 | (15:27)

Had a stressful week (as I type this on Tuesday) and it's got me thinking about SELF WORTH.

I'm a believer in karma. I also genuinely get a kick out of helping people and making people happy. Call me the younger, delectable Mother Teresa if you insist.

Lately though,...

Best Steak in London

(0) Comments | Posted 19 May 2014 | (18:09)

Now, aside the brief period I went vegetarian when I was 8 years old for 6 months because my neighbour ripped a butterfly in half, I've always been a fan of meat (insert innuendo), and mostly importantly, steak.

I love everything about a steak supper. Good, red, yummy meat... the...

The Big D Word

(2) Comments | Posted 25 March 2014 | (00:00)

If you read my blogs, you may have noticed my last one was GRIM with a capital GRIM. I've been feeling a bit low recently, and this blog isn't about to pick up.

Most of the time I am an upbeat, happy, loud (I can hear my mums voice in...

Just Be Positive

(0) Comments | Posted 15 March 2014 | (00:00)

It's beautiful in London today. The sun is shining, the restaurants have put out their summer seating and there's just something in the air that says "order a pimms" at lunch. So, why is it, that I feel glum today?

I am a natural born worrier. If I am not...

I'm a Learner Driver, Leave me alone!

(0) Comments | Posted 4 March 2014 | (12:24)

At the ripe age of 29 (and a half) I have decided to learn to drive. Again. At 18 I started lessons back home in Northampton, and nearly crashed. A lot. In the space of a year, I took two tests, failed both and badly too. In one test I...

Love London

(1) Comments | Posted 26 February 2014 | (00:00)

A lot of my mates are from Northampton, because, well, I'm from there, and when they visit London, they always ask me for those special places to try out. People not from London tend to hate it. They get stuck in Leicester Square and only see the tourists and the...

My Friends Are Racists

Recently, I have become sadder and sadder whilst browsing along my Facebook timeline. I have read angry status after angry status about anything from the girl getting a boob job on the NHS, immigrants, MPs' expenses to Lee Ryan in Celebrity Big Brother. I love an opinion and good old...

That Crap Week After Christmas Before New Years...

(0) Comments | Posted 6 January 2014 | (16:20)

The dead week between Xmas and New Year sucks. You feel fat and bored and the excitement of seeing your family for the first time in 6 months has worn off. It's a dull week, with rubbish weather, and half your friends are already back at work.

You feeling Christmassy? You excited for the time off, the overeating, the family fun and the presents? You love this time of year? All the film watching, Roses munching, Baileys drinking fun you can have eh?

Well not me. Dare I say it, but I don't LOVE Christmas. I don't...

One of my 30 things before I'm 30 was to fly in a helicopter and this Saturday, in Chichester (I didn't know where it was either) I did it. And it was everything I wanted it to be.

A perfect excuse was to book it for my mates 30th... Kelly...

Britain, You Boozing Too Much

I'm almost done talking about this I feel, but then again, I'm still fascinated with the subject that I'm never quite.

I'm talking again about Britain and how much we booze. In my opinion, too much.

I've thought lately about quitting the booze...

I was in NYC recently and overheard a guy describe a girl he was seeing. He explained to his mate that she spoke five languages, was a medical student, had a good family and I swear he finished it off by saying she was also in the Peace Corps. it...

Life Long Friends or the Life in Your Friends?

Recently an acquaintance of mine played my friendship down with my friend saying that she herself had known her longer, which in her mind made her a better friend. It got me thinking about friendship and what measures it.

I'm lucky in the fact that a lot of my oldest...

So, as you may have read in my last blog, I have just returned from Rio De Janeiro. Holy Maloney that's a place and a half! It's NOT good to be back if I'm honest, what with the crazy storms, the fact my bank account was dried out in Brazil...
