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

Horror F(r)iends

I might not have made it clear enough on this blog: I live for the movies. All movies really but mainly horror.

My absolute favourites of all time include Candyman and Hellraiser - with a whole… Continue reading Horror F(r)iends

Even if it's scary or someone misreads it or thinks it's a thinly disguised dig at them (If you think this post is about you, it probably is). So today, let's talk about losing or specifically breaking up with, friends. I've been lucky… Continue reading How to Lose Friends and Give Yourself Unnessary Anxiety For a Week

My morning routine never changes so I complete it with nothing new to report and leave the house at 8.10am. I pick up a lot of fruit on the way to work from my favourite Turkish market. I'm disappointed though that they always leave their bananas out to turn black. Nothing worse. Great if I was… Continue reading Thursday
