With all the bullshit political stuff going on in the US right now (and by that, I obviously mean Trump) it's good to know that the American voting public don't always get it wrong. Towards the end of last year, openly homophobic US State Official Robert Marshall was ousted from his position after 13 terms. … Continue reading Friday Feeling  – watch out for karma!
Yesterday I had a smear test. I haven't had one in ages, but that wasn't always the case. For a time, in my 20s, I had to have one every year, because I developed pre-cancerous cells. I don't remember how the discovery came about (not because I've blocked it out or anything, just because it … Continue reading The importance of cervical screening – have a smear test!
I haven't really done much sales shopping this year. OK, well I've done some, but it hasn't all arrived yet so I can't share my spoils with you.

I don't trust anyone that says they're a morning person. How can you be? How is it possible? Mornings are a shock to the system. There you are all nicely cocooned in the safety of sleep, only to be rudely reminded that real life demands your attention. Weekends are the exception, obvs. Weekend mornings are … Continue reading My morning routine

The premise is that you get a box, and every day you put in an item of non perishable food - tinned goods, pasta, teabags; that kind of … Continue reading Reverse advent calendar – for people less fortunate
If you're in the market for a genuinely funny, laugh out loud comedy film that isn't too long or too challenging - just easy watching and full of giggles, may I recommend Vacation?
