Tips for dealing with Blue Monday

Today is the most depressing day of the year. Fact. Well, kinda.

Getting my shit together, Will & Grace and actual me time #LittleLoves

Taking nearly three weeks off work over Christmas made Monday morning such a shock to the system. My alarm went off at 6.30am and I so wasn't ready. And I didn't half miss Jenson.

Star Wars, Unicorns and La La Land #LittleLoves

Not gonna lie, it's been a rough week. I've spent the last nine days battling a cold with a cough so bad it's actually made me vomit. Fortunately the doctor has reassured me it will soon pass and shouldn't delay my surgery but it's been hard going. All three of us are poorly and sharing… Continue reading Star Wars, Unicorns and La La Land #LittleLoves
