My Monthly Bucket List January 2017

It’s been a while since I’ve done a monthly bucket list. Usually I have every intention, but I’m terribly unorganised and end up forgetting about it until it’s too late. Of course this month I’m on the ball, because it’s January and I’m a new, more organised person. HA only joking, I’m sure I’ll be late again in February. Anyway I don’t have last month to update you on, so I’ll just jump straight in to my goals for this month. January Bucket List Read a bed time story to the kids every night – I used to read the […]

Hair Loss – Is It a Big Deal?

Anyone who knows me will know that my hair is a big deal to me. Since secondary school, I’ve used my hair as a way to experiment with my image. I pushed the boundaries as a teenager, trying many different styles and colours. Looking back, I still don’t know how I managed to dodge suspension when I turned up to school with blue tips. We had a strict ‘normal hair only’ kinda policy, but somehow I got past that. My hair really is my pride and joy when it comes to my image. Losing it is a reoccurring nightmare of […]

My Childhood Ambitions – #Blogtober16 Day 5

When I’m not blogging, I work in retail, and have done almost exclusively since I left school. Of course I would be lying if I said that retail work was my life dream.

My daughter talks about how she’s going to be a teacher and a vet when she grows up. My son, he’s going to build his own school and be the head master of it. Ten year old me? I […]

SSSH, A Little Secret! #Blogtober16 Day 4

What I’m telling you today isn’t really a secret. I’m not sure I actually have any real secrets to tell. So, because I don’t have any proper secrets, I guess I’ll just tell you something that not many people know. I’m afraid of large numbers. Does that sound a bit strange? I think it does a bit. I always thought it made me a bit strange. Like, how could anyone possible be afraid of large numbers? Until, of course, I googled it. It’s a real thing, with a real name and everything. It’s called meganumerophobia, apparently. And I guess they wouldn’t […]

Way Back When – #Blogtober16 Day 2

Another late one from me tonight. Start as I mean to go on and all that lark. Todays Blogtober theme is ‘An old photo of you’. There are lots of photos I could have shared from the last 29 years of my life, but I thought I’d go way pack in to the past to bring you this little gem. I think I’m around a year old. Whatever age I am, I’m bloody cute. Check out them chubby cheeks man! When I look at this photo I see similarities with my children when they were still chubby cheeked babies, although […]
