There are three reasons I love it when Alex heads out for the evening: Me time I get an early night and the bed to myself…to start with I cook veggie Alex is a huge meat eater, which many of you will know from previous posts. This means whenever we’re both in and cook for each other, it’s going to be a meat based dish and will also always feature carbs (rice, potatoes or cous cous if I’m lucky). But there are SO many veggie and vegan ideas I have, that I love getting creative when he’s out. I even usually make enough to have for lunch the following couple of days too, being super productive. The last time I got veggie inventive in the…

I posted a while back about my first ever escape room experience which I did for my birthday (you can read that here). Well, at the end of October we did another – plan B for Emma’s hen party. We were meant to be zipping between the trees at Go Ape in Wyre, but Brian ruined that plan. The storm. Not someone who messed up bookings. With 50mph winds and chances of a downpour I had to quickly find something else, and luckily we got into Keyhunter last minute. Emma wasn’t overly disappointed with the change in plans as she’s pretty hooked on escape rooms after our failure back in March – she was pretty amazing, I’m sure it was me who let down the…

Football. Over 9 months of matches from Saturday to Monday, and for those of us lucky enough, Tuesday’s to Thursdays too – don’t you just love it when it’s football season? Last season I paid literally no attention. Well when your other half’s team isn’t doing so well, it’s not the best experience – mood swings and shouting at TV as though the team can hear is pretty much guaranteed. But this season I promised I’d make more effort again. And there’s one thing which will always get me to watch a game – pub food. The Horatia quickly became a favourite if we were in the area (Alex’s mum lives in Highbury), with it’s friendly service, reasonable prices, and comfy setup. The interior is…

I quit. I did it. I’m free. Ok so it’s actually pretty scary, and my worry and anxiety hasn’t exactly immediately got better. But I knew it’d take time. And that’s ok. I’m working on it. But knowing I don’t have to put myself through the stress, day in day out, feels so darn good. You see. PR is fun. It’s social. It’s rewarding. And most of the time, the culture in an agency is pretty awesome. But that’s the only side most people see. They don’t see the long hours, or constant battle of priorities and urgent tasks, of which there are too many to keep on top of, let alone keep track some days. They don’t see how hard it is to constantly…

Daily struggles are a part of life. From indecisiveness over breakfast to that annoying colleague, the commute or how to fit everything into your evenings, we can all relate. We’re all in the same boat. So much to do, so little time. Here are just 10 daily struggles I’m sure you can all relate to.. 1. The outfit decision – I know I’m not the only one who struggled with the outfit decisions daily. What if I get too hot? Did I wear that in the last two weeks? everyday I promise myself that I’ll get my outfit out that night ahead of the next day. Does it ever happen? No. 2. Commuting – I think almost everyone who works anywhere in the UK can…
