One of my biggest fears, and in many ways biggest obsessions, is wasting time. Wasting anything in general actually doesn’t sit well with me at all – it’s what has me eating absolutely everything on my plate because err you what mate I am not putting good food in the bin – but precious minutes… Continue reading Time to start not-so-wasting time
Here is a list of things I have done rather than start this blog post, which was the one thing I really wanted to do this evening: Applied some unnecessary lotions and potions to my face Edited some photos Left what can only be described as ‘fuckloads’ of comments on you lovely people’s Instagram photos… Continue reading Perfectionism; the enemy of productivity
In recent weeks I’ve been thinking a lot about the way that creativity and inspiration come – and go - in waves.

I've added more and more to my wardrobe, and over the years I've known that if I'm feeling unattractive, or… Continue reading In defence of dressing up

The thought of putting on swimwear is… Continue reading The mental minefield of dealing with weight gain
