2017 I’m Ready for you!

On the 26th December after a wonderful family Christmas my world fell apart. With that in mind 2017 is not going to be the year that I put together a list of bullshit resolutions that I have no intention of keeping. 2017 is going to be the year that I rebuild myself and hopefully whilst doing that piece together my mother at the same time. It is going to be one hell of a year but I figure it is better to make it a hell of a good one instead of just letting it get worse. 2016 personally wasn’t that bad of a year right up until the end of it. Yes I was busy and pretty much run off my feet for most of it but there was nothing in particular to actually complain about – THEN on the 26th (so close to the end without calamity) it all went to shit.

Eventually when things are sorted out here I will be back to work and blogging but as to when that will be happening if I write a post it will be one that has come from a sporadic thought rather than something meticulously planned out. To pass some time I will of course be reading your lovely blogs so feel free to leave your blog names or just head over to my Insta and I’ll catch you there. 

Well 2017,  if I have anything to do with it I am going to persevere with my goal of self healing (not sure if that is what I really want to call it!) and see where that gets me.

So, we didn’t go to any fancy bars or clubs but we slot jockeyed to our hearts content and despite feeling like part of the official blue rinse club I had so much fun. We laughed every day and night that were were there and had coffee and cocktails on tap – literally! (24 Hour Starbucks peeps!). Before we made it to Sin City View Full Post

Bridget Jones’s Baby HAS TO BE WATCHED!!

15 years ago (Yeah I know!!) Bridget and her massive granny pants made their debut on the big screen and ever since then my love affair with her hopeful hopeless self began. Let me start by saying to prepare myself for the newest installment of Jones and co I watched both of the previous films before going to see this one. There isn’t one particular moment that I can View Full Post

As I work shifts it is rare that I will be at work every Monday and have each weekend off so life can get pretty mixed up over here. So, in an effort to not come across as a smug twat and revel in my Monday morning in bed I figured it would be best to just have a bit of a chit chat moment. Over the past month things View Full Post
