Meghan

A short one to say what I’ve been thinking on this, because it’s the story in the UK right now. I was so happy when Harry and Meghan got together. It seemed like finally the royal family was accepting “outsiders”. But that didn’t happen. Meghan got the rough end of the british press. And the…

End of 2019

ETA: This is apparently my 500th blog post. Sort of poetic! Well, my blogging dropped off a bit when I realised I’d managed to use up all my image storage, argh! I suppose I might buy some more in 2020 but the current money situation demands I spend it on other stuff rather than posting…

Images not uploading

Hey all, I’ve tried to do another blog post but for some reason I’ve had problems uploading photos. Does anyone have any ideas? (This photo uploaded fine but trying to upload holiday photos didn’t work.) I’m a bit confused! Do I need to buy more storage or something? I’m using the iOS app.

Holiday catch up, Part 1

After everything that happened, I never got a chance to tell you about our holiday. It seems like such a long time ago now! It felt like I was looking forward to it all year. I suppose I was. We didn’t leave until 9 October and got back on 23 and I hadn’t really had…

We said goodbye to a friend today

We said goodbye to my partner’s best friend today. The guy who he went travelling to Japan with a couple of weeks after we met. They had such a lot of shared experiences; in many ways more than we’ve had in half the time (countries at least – they/he loved to travel). He was a…

I’m overdue a post but…

…a few things have happened in the last week or so and I haven’t gotten my act together. Yesterday we found out that one of T’s best friends had died suddenly. He’s our age (definitely not an age where you’re expected to die suddenly) and T just got a call from his mum to say…

Help! I’m a social media shopping addict.

I’m aware I haven’t done much of an update lately and that’s because things are just much of a muchness. Countdown to our holiday and The Wedding and all sorts of excitement. But I did buy a few things lately so I thought I’d do a rundown on those because why not? Let’s just say…

Breast cancer clinic

I’m sitting here waiting for my breast exam. I’m working from home today so I am wearing non work clothes, just jeans and scruffs. I had to fill in a form just now and it struck me what a juxtaposition there is between my shoes (DNA patterned TOMS) and the fact that there’s a whole…

Dealing with periods: A game changer

So since my self imposed Facebook ban earlier in the year, I ended up spending far more time than I did previously on Instagram. Arguably I just replaced one social media addiction with another, but really the way I use insta is far less engaged and way more casual – to look at cakes and…
