An ode to Boomtown

I'm sad to say that I've made a foolish mistake - and I only have myself to blame. I've spent this year laboured under the false pretence that I didn't want to go to Boomtown. Time and time again I've told myself; it's too crowded, it's too expensive - you could do so many other [...]

WEIRD – July 2019

Can you IMAGINE my surprise that I'm actually doing another addition of WEIRD? I'm very proud of myself too. If you haven't already, go check out what I got up to in June... it's riveting.  July has been really fun; I've been buying furniture, eating loads of great food and seeing pals. Here are some [...]

That's when it happened. My laptop, god bless her soul, passed to the other side. Within seconds I'm tearing my hair [...]

What I’ve learnt from Dry January

*Short disclaimer: I drank three times in January, technically a failure but also still of an achievement - 3 isn't 31 people! Okay, it was four.* I can't be the only person that has woken up at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon, dribble down my face, a hazy memory of the evening before and a [...]
