It’s just like something out of a wonderful fairy tale. On her 25th birthday, every female in the United Kingdom is sent a special letter from the National Health Service inviting her to attend a beautiful, magical ball to dance the night away with a harem of really good looking strangers. Only joking. She’s invitedContinue reading “The magical experience of a cervical screening”
I have. I started writing a blog about ASMR one year ago. I didn’t finish it because the more I wrote about it, the weirder I felt, like those people on Channel 4 documentaries who fall in love with fairground rides and car exhausts, and you think – why are you on telly admitting toContinue reading “Have you ever fallen asleep to someone tapping on a plastic colander?”

This morning I weed on a stick and it turned pink. To bring you up to speed (god forbid you should miss something on this riveting journey of mine) it’s day 4 of the Fast 800 diet, which I’ve decided to follow for 6.5 weeks over Lent.
It’s the night before I go for my metaphorical wander through the desert for 40 days and 40 nights.

Mindfulness definitely sounds like a load of bollocks. It’s the sort of word that sounds like it was made up by an American women’s magazine columnist in an article about how she went to find herself at a yoga retreat up a mountain in Goa. Surprisingly, this is not the case. The word mindfulness wasContinue reading “Mindfulness: what is it and is it good, or is it a load of bollocks?”
It’s Saturday morning, I’ve been to boxing, I’ve had a shower and now I’m eating a crumpet. I always forget how delicious crumpets are. What I should be doing, of course, is tucking into some poached eggs and a protein shake to fuel my broken muscles but, you know….crumpets. I’m not sure I should beContinue reading “Saturday morning crumpet”
Tall is only good if you’re also really really thin, is the message I’m getting from pop culture. If you’re tall and skinny, you’re basically a goddess. I was tall and skinny once, when I was about twelve. That was around about the same time I got a haircut that resembled a mushroom. I wantedContinue reading “Some musings about being a tall woman”
