I forget sometimes that not everyone who reads my blog follows me on twitter or instagram and that I really should use the blog to let you know what I’m doing outside of this platform! Sorry, my bad. So you’ll remember I wrote for Macmillan a while ago, well they were gracious enough to allow me to write again. […]
My grandparents were married for over 50 years. My parents were married for over 30. They were examples of “til death do us part” which you don’t see too often. Pretty much all of my friends are married with children and have been with their partners FOREVER. As we know I’m not great at romantic […]
I’m writing this from India so I’m gonna sound a bit like a gap year wanker for a bit, but let’s go with it. To set the scene for you, I’m in a village called Tordi sat on the first floor terrace of a 400 year old house. I have my feet up and I […]
It was 2009 when I watched Steve Jobs give his speech to Harvard graduates, recorded 4 years earlier. That speech resonated with me and I’ve listened to it a handful of times over the years. Today, I listened to it again. The first time I heard it was when I was working as a Personal Assistant. […]
My very beautiful and lovely friend reminded me that I haven’t done a follow up to my blog post The “C” Word. Now, I think it’s because I spent Christmas with her and her family and she wants to see in print how amazing her Christmas dinner was (it really was fucking awesome by the way). Nevertheless, […]
For those of you who follow my instagram and/or twitter you’ll already know that I wrote a blog for Macmillan that was posted on Friday. I’ve been mad busy with volunteering for Age UK and The Lewis Foundation since then as well as just, you know, life, so I’m a little late in letting blog followers know the news….Sorry!
I’m massively honored that Macmillan thought my blog was worthy of sharing with people. They tweeted out the link to their 634k followers and I’m not gonna lie, I did cry a little bit. (Happy tears obvs) For me, it’s a big deal to put my story out there and to let strangers know about my Mum and what I went through. The point of doing it was hopefully to help at least one person. I’ve had an amazingly lovely response from friends and strangers alike and it’s been fucking awesome. The best part is that Macmillan say I can write for them regularly. Eeeeeeek!!!
So, for those of you who didn’t see it, click here to take a look at the blog.
Thanks everyone for the love and support. If you like what you read, please feel free to share, like and subscribe. #spreadthelove
I’m not gonna lie, Trump scares me. His entire belief system, his values, everything he stands for is the exact opposite to everything I believe in. After I finished listening to the “Grab the Pussy” recording I felt naturally disgusted but for about 30 seconds I did think to myself – well that’s what men […]
I didn’t feel like leaving the house this morning. I didn’t sleep well and I’m at the tail end of a cold which is zapping all my energy. The alarm went off and I thought: ugh. It’s bad enough when your alarm goes off for work, let alone on a weekend. BUT I had a […]
Well fuck my actual life, it’s been one hell of a year. And when I say hell, it really has got close to a living hell for so many people around the world at so many moments. I know bad things have happened every year since the dawn of time but this particular year for […]
I had a long drive today. Driving always gives me the opportunity to put thought into real life things. Today’s topic: Christmas. Uuuggghhhh it’s such a draining subject that literally fills me with dread whenever I think about it. It’s 7 weeks until Christmas. When I was a kid that was a whole lifetime away. […]
