The death of the celebrity

It is shocking, every time the death of a celebrity is reported. We’re saddened as we feel we know them, on a personal level, where we feel we can judge them for every move they make. They are people. Human beings just like you and I and they can sometimes make mistakes. What right do…

To the man on the plane – fuck you

To the man on the plane – fuck you. Now here’s a story all about how my life got flipped turned upside down…haha don’t worry I won’t bore you all with that – that’s for a different post but I will bore you with something that happened to me yesterday on a flight from London…

Things I would tell my 20 year old self

Well 2019 – you’ve thrown a lot my way in the space of 12 months, some good, some horrendous. As we get close to the new year, new decade and new chapter in my life (turning the big 3-0) I thought I’d reflect on the last 10 years and think about those things I know…

The calm after the storm

Never did I think months ago that I’d be sat here writing this post. My life fell apart all in one day and that was probably the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. I don’t want to dwell on it as that’s the past, and I am looking to the future now….

Heartbreak Hotel

I have been here before, twice. I don’t even know why I am shocked, upset, angry, heartbroken – because the same person has done this to me over a period of 7 years – twice. Although this time ever so slightly different in that we now have a house together. I spent 7 years of…

An anxious free Christmas? Wouldn’t that be lovely!

I am not sure about anyone else – but Christmas is the time of year I feel most anxious. The going out, the Christmas party, the getting home, the getting around on Christmas Day, the who are we going to see – when are we going to see them and what do we need to…

Mental health awareness day – why we need it!

Mental health was never spoken about when I was a child, or at least that I heard of in my presence. Sometimes I think why? It’s so important to talk about- to see why a child is constantly emotional or acting out of the ordinary. Mental health is so, so important and if not treated…

A novice’s guide to Sri Lanka

  2017 was quite a hard year for me, starting the year trying to deal with severe anxiety attacks. So I apologise now for writing next to nothing – my love for writing and blogging fell away. Sometimes we pretend to others that all is well, when really you’re breaking inside. Every blog post I…

Family – who’d have them?

Every family argues …. right? I come from a relatively big family on my mum’s side (she’s one of 13…), and a stark contrast on my dad’s (he’s one of 2). I have 8 aunties and 4 uncles. I should say I do actually have 9 aunties but one is permanently absent. I had a…

The return of the fantabulous Miss Manners

Ladies and gentlemen, roll up, roll up to see the fantabulous return of Miss Manners in her writing debut (or first one for about a year and a half). This is your 2 minute warning – if you do not wish to continue to read, well then don’t but if you do, be warned the…
