Lovely blogs, the lovely bloggers and even lovelier blog-readers…

Forget Freshly Pressed. I prefer getting Awards! They are given by actual other bloggers who know what they’re  doing, enjoy what they’re doing and actually read your blog! They show that you have perseverance; a blog that someone keeps coming back to. They show appreciation. They show hard work. This is my second ever award […]

Apologies…Olympics…You wing it, you win it :)

First and foremost I want to apologise for the complete lack of posting in recent times. It has been exactly…nine days since I last posted :O , and, although I’m sure that probably hasn’t impacted on your life too much, I am sorry. It sucks when you follow a blog and that bloggee fails to […]

They will be normal people with their own friends and their own lives; not there to make your work experience […]

“It’s all I have”, I told the hungry eyes.

Today, I was having a hard day. Or a hard-ish day more like. I was shattered and waiting for the weekend desperately. I was hot. I was bored. And I’d been stuck in an office for about five hours. I needed a break. So I took a short walk outside my office building. Just around […]

5 things I wish I’d known about before Summer 2012

Seinfeld. Need I say more? Probably actually. For those of you yet to discover the delights of this old-fashioned and therefore one hundred per cent more funny than anything more recent sitcom, it is about a group of four friends, three men and a woman. She provides us with just enough oestrogen for my liking. (Personally, I always […]
