I have a feeling, over the last 18 months of blogging, that I may have given the impression of being a bit of a whinger. If you need some examples, click here and here (but do that later, read this first). It’s safe to say there’s much about life that gets right on my very … Continue reading The Little Things
Do you remember those heady days when you could do whatever you damn well pleased? Eat what you wanted whenever you wanted to, drink whatever you felt like drinking, sleep for however long or in which ever way you desired? How I envy those who can do whatever they like in life. Ahh, to be … Continue reading Ten Things I Can No Longer Do
If I’m being honest, this post should be called, ‘Things That Mildly Irritate Me’. But as titles go, that sounds a bit lacklustre so we’re going to have to go with the slightly exaggerated one above. Slightly. I’m not what you would call an easygoing person. I am at the mercy of my emotions and … Continue reading Things That Make Me Go BOOM!
Jeremy Crow is the nom de plume of Jeremy Fink, who has been writing blog entries for almost a decade now. He has had varying degrees of success along the way, several nervous breakdowns, a few “I quit and I’ll never do this again!” moments, and so many get rich quick ideas that you couldn’t … Continue reading A Little Gem from Jeremy (A Guest Post by Jeremy Crow)
Well, things are undoubtedly easier: I can go out for a meal if I want to, I can go to the pub (I could, but I can’t be arsed), I can go back to the gym, panic-buying is over, and you can kind of see people again – within limits. Hoorah! Life truly has regained … Continue reading I Ain’t Missing You at All

More people are falling sick, more businesses are being forced to close, more people are becoming isolated, more plans are ruined, more people are worrying about … Continue reading Surviving the C-Word
*Written pre-COVID19 UK outbreak and subsequent measures* Despite my husband’s protestations to the contrary, I am rarely ill (shut up, husband, I’m not). Since I’ve improved my fitness and began to eat a healthier and less processed diet over the last couple of years, I don’t seem to pick up many viruses. But when I … Continue reading I Told You I Was Ill
Oddly enough, I’ve just logged into my blog for the first time in ages (we won’t talk about that), and today – on the day of writing this blog – 13th February – is the apparently the fifth anniversary of this blog’s existence. So, yeah…that’s…a thing, I guess. I tried updating the look of the … Continue reading Change is as Good as a Rest…
Now, you’d be forgiven for thinking this is just another one of my many ‘ranty’ posts. It isn’t. But that’s okay. Like I say, I forgive you. And although I have been known to moan about stuff, I’ve also been known to write posts about things that make me happy. Well, I did once. Things … Continue reading I.Just.Can’t.Even.
Penned Friday 5th July 2019: I was just considering the disgusting prospect of writing a first draft of this blog on paper (ugh! Paper? What is this, the bloody dark ages?), when the nurse called me in for my consultation. And my two-and-a-half-hour Minor Injuries Unit stint was finally over, with a suspected ‘badly sprained … Continue reading (Falling at) the Final Hurdle
