The Problem with OCD When You Are Exhausted

I want to scream when I see a sink full of washing up sitting there idly, and oh, how my heart skips several beats when I see someone turning a corner of a page in a book more so when they press down hard.  Clothes will always crease, and lawns will always grow; these are…

Hit ‘Unfollow’ And … Breathe

Oh, how I long for the bygone days when it was just Facebook and you daren’t unfriend someone because you didn’t want to offend them. Those were the days when you added people you actually knew and liked, and not because you thought they would be useful or because you thought you'd didn't want to…

An Insomniac on the Unbearable Art of Coping with Snorers

Am I really an insomniac or just an edgy light sleeper? Probably a bit of both, but I’ve been like this since childhood and it’s all I’ve known. I’m one of these people that can tolerate white noise such as the wind blowing (I can’t do anything about that), and I have to block out…

Enablers ~ Guilt Through Silence

There was a time where people minded their own business and kept quiet, and they were highly thought of because they didn’t interfere. Yet today the line between interfering and intervening is so fine it’s hard to know when to say something or not. You’re damned if you do and damned by others if you…

When You Need To Tell Your Friend The Truth

A good friend tells you the truth whether you want to hear it or not right? In reality that’s not so easy when you can see a friend making a huge mistake, but if you stay quiet are you being a true friend? I fell out with a former best friend of mine (we just…

Memories Of What I Thought Adulthood Would Be Like

Having returned to my childhood town, (not through choice) I often go past buildings and places that I was in awe of as a child. Most are now derelict, and the posh stores are now either boarded up or replaced by chains. Things really aren’t as glamorous when you grow up, or are as exciting…

I Endured Another Lazy and Entitled Millennial Today

I had hoped by now most millenials had learned their lessons as many enter their thirties, but it seems the world has to endure another decade of those who are late developers. I loathe tags, and it would give me great pleasure in never having to refer to someone as a millenial, but sadly some…

Arbonne and How To Lose Friendships

One of the reasons why I deactivated my Facebook account was the sheer number of folks in my network who had jumped on the Arbonne wagon, gushing about their new pension plan. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all for people making a living through sales, but to call it your own business is a…

The #METOO movement and the Presidents Club

People often get the wrong idea when they hear a girl works as a hostess as they conjure up images of girls in a gentleman’s club like a Playboy bunny. Often girls who are resting actresses, out of work models, or air hostesses who are on leave work as hostesses at parties and events on…

Which did Gandalf prefer ~ Frodo or Bilbo?

The Lord of the Rings has been hugely successful film saga, and although I enjoy watching them I preferred the original trilogy, and found the recent films (The Hobbit, The Desolation of Smaug, The Battle of the Five Armies) a little too rushed and with too many deaths. One question I always wondered was who…
