New nerd category

Welcome to the new section of my blog "Nerding Out". You may have gathered that I can be a bit of a geek/nerd/gamer (or maybe you haven't, have I hidden it well?) and I recently found some old forum posts I'd made from when I first played Oblivion and Skyrim when they were first released. … Continue reading New nerd category

This is how much I love GBBO - I did nails especially for it in 2015. There was even a promotion on the A England polishes I used in my shop.

A Great British Bake Off dilemma

"The Great British Bake Off". In recent years this has become one of the big iconic programmes. Forget "A Game of Thrones". Forget "The Walking Dead". "Breaking Bad" is so out of style. This year though, this year is going to be one to remember. A turning point in all our lives. For it is … Continue reading A Great British Bake Off dilemma

Sometimes we don’t need encouragement

I'm not a big blog reader. If I'm in the mood to read I'd rather read a book or if I'm at the computer I want to be gaming but sometimes I have a little look through the 'Discover' feature here on WordPress or have a browse over on Bloglovin' and I will find some … Continue reading Sometimes we don’t need encouragement

I already did a brief update … Continue reading Health and fitness – July 2017

Retirement to France

No, unfortunately I'm not talking about myself retiring. As much as I'd love to be able to retire at 33 I'm just not that successful! I've put up plenty of posts stating I'm visiting my parents in France and won't be able to respond for a week so I thought it about time I explained … Continue reading Retirement to France

Reflections on: relationships

I had one of those random, out of the blue dreams last night about someone I rarely speak to now then woke up and couldn't get back to sleep for ages (thanks Niall with your snoring). It just got me thinking about the 4 major romantic relationships I've had and what they meant to me. … Continue reading Reflections on: relationships
