It’s over!

The first week of work and the new year is over. So in my last post I said how happy I was that I’d managed to get up after my alarm went off, and shower before work. The intention is to do this as often as possible (within reason). When you only get a few […]

So good it’s noughty.

So over the years I have always had trouble with my scalp. It’s very sensitive, it scabs up and it gets sore and itchy (and bleeds, I know.. gross right).. dandruff has been a pretty constant thing in my adult life. I was always pretty embarrased about it but no matter what products I used, […]

No strings attached.

So I’m home alone while my partner is gone for the week, dog sitting for his parents. I had just reheated some pasta for my dinner and wanted to put something on that wasn’t going to need a big emotional investment from me, so I went to comedies on Prime and ended up selecting No […]

Wedding prep and pampering.

I was supposed to get married in October 2020, but like many other couples we had to postpone due to the pandemic. We had all the big things taken care of.. but, just in case you didn’t know, weddings are a lot of work! As it’s been over a year since our plans had to […]
