The Monday Feeling

I have a super power. I'm not sure why but wherever I go, people tell me things. Deep and meaningful snippets of detail from their lives that I don't ask for. I love it though - it makes me feel good to be trusted and it must mean I have an open face. I think… Continue reading The Monday Feeling

Gaslighting

Excuse the serious post prefacing all the fun Halloween fodder but I wanted to put this together following a conversation I had this morning with my husband. He was telling me about a woman who went to prison for murdering her husband with a hammer. She'd been driven to breaking point by his behaviour and… Continue reading Gaslighting

I love to sleep. I rarely lie in past 9 on the weekend but I am partial to an afternoon nap and truth be told if I know this is a viable option, I will look forward to it until the moment I can slip my clothes off and climb beneath the duvet. The absolute… Continue reading Nap Queen

Cry for the Bad Man

Ugh. Some days no matter what you do, things just won't go your way. One thing can throw you off or get under your skin and then suddenly you're sobbing for every bad thing that ever happened to you. That was me this morning, Wasting perfectly good make-up on something (and someone) insignificant but also… Continue reading Cry for the Bad Man

Dreams Can Come True (But I really hope they don’t)

I've always been a dreamer but lately (and for a long while now) I've literally been a dreamer - every night I have dreams so vivid I have no fucking clue how to process them. Or even if dreams really do mean half as much as we give them credit for. I'm thinking of getting… Continue reading Dreams Can Come True (But I really hope they don’t)
