The week before pay day…

      As this week has been the week before pay day and I have been incredibly broke. I have Christmas to pay for and a ski trip next year… and you know pints to buy every Friday and Christmas parties to go to and (possibly) buy new clothes for. All the important things, naturally. So here’s a little list about the thoughts I’m sure we all have when we’re counting down the days till pay day. I’m going to cook a huge batch of Bolognese/soup/chilli to live off for the week. Wait, what’s this in the freezer? Is that … Continue reading The week before pay day…

My local area

So, I live in Bristol. I imagine most of you are aware of that, being that most of you are my friends and family… And you’ll also know that I currently reside in the affluent Clifton area. Now, I’m certainly not affluent, but for those who don’t know Clifton, I am surrounded by mansions. Let’s not get too excited, most of them house young professionals in flat shares (I’m still young, right??), some are home to the 8000 students who are lucky enough to live in this area (in flat shares, too), but some of them, not many, are still … Continue reading My local area

Food, glorious food

Here I am again, on my iPad. Thanks Acer for your update… Why not add the ability to ‘skip till a more convenient time’ option in your next one. Anyway, on to the more important stuff. Blog every day in November has asked for ‘Food Glorious Food’ for day three. Food is probably one of my favourite things; its up there with sleeping, they are tied for top spot I reckon. As some of you may know, and I think I mentioned this in my day one post, but I haven’t eaten meat for nearly 10 years. I eat fish, … Continue reading Food, glorious food

What’s (not so) new about me…

Blog every day in November (BEDN)… I didn’t do so well at this when it ran in May. I think I managed to do two posts… I’m not promising I’ll do better this time round, especially considering that I am also attempting NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, where a participant is challenged to write an entire 50,000 word novel in the month of November) so it’s looking like I’ll be spending a lot of time on my laptop this month. So, today’s BEDN topic is ‘New About Yourself’. Which is interesting, cause I don’t think there is anything new about … Continue reading What’s (not so) new about me…

So I have a confession…

So, I’m quite vocal on here (and other social media sites!) about my love of exercising. But I have a secret. I’m actually incredibly lazy. Yup, that’s right, I love nothing more than spending a full day in bed, on my own, watching Netflix. The thought of getting up and doing… well, anything… urgh. I mean, I work really hard in my job, I exercise 4ish times a week and I spend time with friends (most of that time in the pub). So here’s a list of this lazy girls daily battles… Snoozing my alarm AGAIN in the mornings telling … Continue reading So I have a confession…
