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. Good horror, bad horror, cheap horror - most of it has a place in this old heart of mine. My absolute favourites of all time include Candyman and Hellraiser - with a whole… Continue reading Horror F(r)iends

The Scariest Tale of All

I often think about fear and how it affects me. All my life I think I've been afraid to try too hard.

Autumn Bucket List

I haven't really planned much for Autumn apart from my trip, which in itself is a pretty cool thing to cross off the bucket list. I've always wanted to visit Copenhagen, so I guess I'll start there. These are the things I'll be doing this Autumn, in no particular order. Copenhagen Tora and I have… Continue reading Autumn Bucket List

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

Twisted Nerve

Anyone else spend a fair portion of their life worrying that they're not a good person? I think I question this every day at least once but when drama occurs the feeling hits me tenfold and I go all floppy with inertia. Like, why am I bothering, I'm the worst, I might as well give… Continue reading Twisted Nerve
