Return of the Jack

  On the 26th of June 2017, my Mum, Jean Hames and Michael Jackson (No, not that one), adopted this cute little doggle from BARK rescue centre in Berwick upon Tweed. He was known as ‘Spot’ at BARK but Jean and Michael renamed the adorable Jack Russell, Jack. At only 20 months old he was…… Continue reading Return of the Jack

Stop telling me what to do!

    I am so fed up of being told what to do, who to follow, how to raise your social following by 10,000 a day, how to lose 6 stone in an hour. “I went from being a total jobless, drug addict to earning £70,000 a day, overnight” Erm… no, you didn’t.

What the flip?!

  I have discovered that I only get one week a month where everything is amazing. I am going to assume that this is down to hormones. I have one week where I get my s**t together, I am super organised, the house is clean, I am on top of my blog posts, meals are…… Continue reading What the flip?!

I may never be ‘cured’ but I’m learning to cope.…… Continue reading Coping, not cured.
