Even more books I’ve read

June 5, 2017

This year I have realised how much I fucking love reading. If I had a profile on Tinder it would say; Hobbies: reading & wine. Preferably together. In fact my reading list contains 342 books, I don’t have time for you. Swipe left. Phil thinks my reading is anti-social, I’ve offered many times to read aloud so he can enjoy too, but he’s having none of it. Instead he watches football, reads the newspaper or cleans the flat. One does not…

North America – we’re coming at ya!

May 31, 2017

Having now seen most of Europe, Phil and I have decided it’s time to branch out to a brand new continent. One that neither of us have set foot on. NORTH AMERICA. Fuck yeah! On September 26th we start our three week jaunt down the east coast of North America, with our first stop in Toronto, Canada. I’ve been planning for MONTHS on what we will do and see and eat and experience and of course, have time for any unplanned excursions…

Eyebrows are big game. A product review.

May 23, 2017

Sometimes I hate mine and sometimes I adore them. I’ve never known what to do with them. They were always my pet-peeve of personal maintenance and make up. I’d rather cut my toe nails any day! Most days I’d ignore my eyebrows. Which, looking back now, probably was the best thing I could have done. I’ve seen so many of the thin 90’s ‘brows. That thin line of lost hairs trailing over an eye – scary. I remember as a…

I get involved, Gary.

May 21, 2017

For as long as I can remember I’ve been a person who jumps in. Puts my hand up, even when it may not be wanted. Or simply reaches out to help. I don’t know where this has come from – whether I’m overly confident or due to my upbringing of my Mum always telling me I can do anything. STOP RAMBLING WOMAN AND EXPLAIN.…

Next island intake, please

May 18, 2017

Do you ever wish you could just pack a bag, a few of your loved ones (not all, we want this to be tranquil) and jump aboard a plane or ship to a small island somewhere in the Caribbean or Mediterranean? Somewhere you could set up a new village, eating only local produce and fish from the sea. Cut off from technology, politics, underground hot-boxes that transport you from A to B (I mean you, London Underground tube), people who…

IDAHOT 2017

May 17, 2017

Today is IDAHOT day; International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia. A day that my workplace is 2000% behind. I am happy to work for such a large Bank in an industry that is very old-school in so many ways, but yet is completely inclusive and forward thinking. To mark IDAHOT day, the Bank are globally dressing in purple, having a bake sale of charity, hosting parent and family events, movie sessions, handing out purple candy floss, putting up posters for awareness,…
