What’s in my Fridge? Blogtober16

I’m back for another day of Blogtober. I’ve missed so many days now that I’m not sure you can really say I’m taking part. But, I like the prompts so II’m just joining when I can. Today the question is ‘what is in my fridge?’ I used to love watching MTV’s Cribs, and getting to have a neb inside the fridges of the stars. Well I’m afraid dear reader, you’ve caught me at a bad time. We do our shopping online, and get it delivered on a Friday morning. Today is Thursday, so the fridge isn’t stocked up with champagne […]

My Favourite TV – #Blogtober Day 8

Well in true Lauren fashion, I’ve missed two days of Blogtober without even realising. I sat watching TV last night, and something in my head was saying “you’ve got something to do”. But, I couldn’t remember what that something was. So, I guess I won’t be blogging every day this October. Anyway, there’s no point dwelling on the past. On to the present, and todays prompt: Favourite TV Programmes. I go through phases where I watch all of the tv, and then I watch nothing. Right now I’m in the first phase. I haven’t managed to finish a book in weeks because […]

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. I enjoy my job, but it wasn’t what I dreamed about when I was ten. No, when I was ten I had ambitions. I think all children do, don’t they? 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 […]
