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. I follow

How to…write a letter

The art of letter writing is fast becoming a lost art, at least handwritten letters. However it is certainly a skill I think we should all learn. I remember my Nana teaching me how to write a letter; where everything should go and where to put the stamp on an envelope and where and how

Just jump, don’t wait to be pushed

  I double dare you What is actually stopping you from doing that thing that you want to do? The big thing or the little thing. Do you want a promotion, a pay rise? Are you scared to send that text, email, make that phone call because you think the answer will be no? So

Just one day at a time.

I will promote the importance of understanding mental health issues until it is no longer a taboo subject. I will happily stand up in front of people and tell them how I once found it so difficult to leave the house that my Dad had to literally pick me up and carry me in to

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

Desert island

It’s a common dinner party/ice breaker question, ‘What one item would you have to have  with you on a desert island?’. People say things like a radio. my phone, an endless supply of books (that’s actually a good one because once you’ve read them you can use them as kindling, as sacrilegious as that is!)

The amazing Alexandra Kay

  I’m fairly certain that Alexandra Kay is the busiest woman I know. Not only does she work full time at Tesco, Skipton, rallying the troops for fundraising; but also when I contacted her and asked if she would like to feature on my blog she was getting ready to run a Bed and Breakfast for

Darkness – The all consuming

      The pain cuts through you without any warning sign. An invisible force has presented itself in front of you. You can’t see it but you sure as hell can feel it. There’s no way around it, through it or over it. It torments and taunts without even uttering a sound. You can
