    The Ultimate Guide To Decluttering

    Believe it or not, I am now SIX WEEKS into Operation Declutter. That’s right, six weeks. It’s still not anywhere near finished, but you know what, that’s ok. The Easter holidays interrupted progress for a fortnight, as it was pretty impossible to do any real work on it with a small person running around mid purge. Still, it’s finally time for back to school, which means I can pull my finger back out and try and head towards the light at the end of the tunnel. So far I’ve managed to declutter a lot more crap than I was expecting to, and while it’s not 100% there yet, I feel…

    Paranoia, And How To Handle It

    Do you suffer from paranoia? I’ve never really been a paranoid person at all. For starters, I don’t think I’m that interesting to especially warrant anyone else’s attention, but lately things have started to change. I’ve always been quite cautious about my personal information, and have only ever given away things about myself that I’m comfortable with others knowing. Or so I thought. Last week, a friend of mine who works in intelligence was enlightening me on just how easy it is to find out information about people online. I felt like I knew about this already, and was fairly savvy about keeping my personal information private. Let me tell…

    Friday Faves

    Told you I was going to be inconsistent with this, didn’t I? Anyhow, it’s Friday, and not just any Friday – it’s Good Friday. I had salmon at teatime and I’m about to eat some salt and pepper prawns from the Chinese so I feel like I’ve done my bit for Christianity today. Which is nice. I’ve also got to ask forgiveness for neglecting this (and basically all other) sections of my blog over the last week or so. As you’ll know, I’ve been massively preoccupied with Operation Declutter, which has taken over my LIFE. So yeah, sorry about being shit. Back to the main event and Friday Faves is…

    Thirtyhood

    Last weekend I was at a soft play with my friend and our kids when she asked me a question:   “What even is there for women to do in their thirties once you’ve got a kid and can’t or don’t want to go out like we used to?” This really got me thinking. The diabolically named 18-30’s holidays were all the rage when I was younger.

I’m on the opposite side of thirty now, and to be…
