    Eating Out

    If you go out for a meal, what do you look for? Do you go and find a place with beautiful surroundings, lots of space, fine dining (you know, like arty farty food), cheap prices, good service etc. Well the first thing I look for is not pretentious food menus, as you are probably aware. I do not care for fast service, fine dining or beautiful surroundings. All I require is enough space so that I am not hitting elbows with my neighbours and a warm seating area that’s not within 5 metres of the entrance door, so that I do not have to contend with blasts of cold air…

    Happy New Year! My Resolutions and what I intend to change this year, and why I should have done it last year….

    Happy New Year to all my readers and fellow bloggers. I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and next year proves to be the best yet for you.. My holiday has been bittersweet really. A good Christmas day, a few days away at Cambridge (future post on the way), and a spell of bad anxiety, (future post on the way-if I can bring myself to write about it, but it’s been a pretty bad one, so I’ll have to be in a more uplifted mood to write the words without bursting into tears, but that’s how it is; Ho, Ho, Ho!) Here are 10 resolutions that I intend…

    The Sliding Drawer

    My ghostly tale happened two years ago, during a particularly cold and depressing week at the beginning of November. My mum had gone away for a few days and I decided to stay at her house, and I can’t remember why. I was there for a reason, and it was probably to get scared shitless, which I wasn’t aware of when I first opened the front door with my bag containing my night dress and toothbrush at 3 in the afternoon. It was a strange day in that it bore all the signs of a particularly frightful ghost story. Grey skies, cold house, a dripping tap and a scraggy stray…

    The Royals

    I’ve been thinking about doing this post subject for a while now, and due to the incessant news and television coverage of late, is has prompted me to do so. As you are now probably aware, I live in Britain, and there is one part of this country that many people have affection for, and that is ‘The Royal Family’. From my earliest memories of having opinions about stuff, I have never considered myself to be a monarchist, and my reasons are personal, yet I do respect a persons right to like the establishment and what it stands for. It’s always been there in the background for me, something I…

    6 Week Respite as an Ooompah Loompah

    Today I reached the end of my 6 week respite from work. The annual summer term break, when all the UK schools shut down for 6 weeks to give the teachers a well needed break and to give the students a chance to lay in bed till 3pm, eat pizza and play on the ps4 until 4 in the morning. As you may be aware I work for an education supply agency. I work on a day to day basis by having calls the night before booking me in somewhere for the following day, or calls at 7.30 in the morning, telling me to get my arse into gear and…

    Hand Stretched Pizza

    I was out with a friend yesterday having some lunch. I picked up the menu with a certain amount of trepidation anticipating the pretentious food explanations of which I am not very fond; which you may be already aware of. I tend to do this in restaurants now. I’ll pick up the menu, not for an in-depth food perusal of whats on offer, but a scan for the most cringe worthy food items on the list. If there are too many for me to cope with, I usually stick my fist in my mouth to hide the guffaws of laughter and contemplate running for the hills. The restaurant in question…
