Ye Annual Throwback: BLOGNY 2018

Let’s take it back to the blog that begun it all with another throwback. 2014 was now 4 years ago – almost 5 as we come into the New Year. Yet I know that the writing I did back then is probably the best i will express myself. I remember writing this post sitting cross…

The Peaks of 2018: BLOGNY 2018

Like I said – for every hard moment this year I was blessed with more kindness and good than I knew what to do with. The love I have is the abundant kind that I couldn’t have done anything to deserve but I will spend my whole life trying to show just how grateful I…

25 things to be grateful for: BLOGNY 2018

It’s Christmas again!! Merry day and love to you all. Here are 25 things I am grateful for right now. My family – who have all called me and messaged me over the last few days, or are celebrating birthdays and successes and babies, or are just out there living. What a colourful and strange…

3 months!!: BLOGNY 2018

This morning I woke up, heard the heaviness of the rain through the window and rolled over. Fell back to sleep. I got up eventually and boiled the jug while I found a song to listen to. Danced around the kitchen making breakfast. I changed the sign on the table to say ‘1 day until…

A Lesson from Every Job I’ve Had: BLOGNY 2018

  ONE: I was fired from 1 – or discontinued because I guess I never had a real contract. It wasn’t my fault even though I also sprung a gigantic law suit (lol).I think what this job taught me is you don’t need a job. I was so restless back then, but the kind of restless…

Let’s Talk about Being Alone AGAIN: BLOGNY 2018

I’ll admit I am not good at being by myself. I am a severe hypochondriac who is calmed by having someone nearby to help me. I am a horror story fanatic who is easily spooked by dark shadows. I also just love to talk to people. But being alone is important and I am terrified…

Christmas in 5 #2 Memories: BLOGNY 2018

It was sunny and I wore my pale yellow jeans, pink diamanté t-shirt and this cool pink bomber jacket with tiny white polkadots on it. The air smelt kind of spicy and kind of sweet and I had gotten two new books as part of my present – the latest Jacqueline Wilson and Twilight. We…

Christmas in 5 #1 Decorations: BLOGNY 2018

Christmas is magic. I love how delicious and indulgent it is with its shiny tinned biscuits, paper hats and shiny wrapped gifts. Every year it is so much fun to see hordes of people out every night dressed up and singing carols – and it is exciting and ridiculous to be a part of them,…

Rough: BLOGNY 2018

Soft is ugly in a concrete world When you are in love or when you are somewhere familiar it is easy to be the velveteen, pink girls they all need you to be. It is easy to be softly spoken and to nod agreeably when people tell you are sweet and kind and gentle. You…
