    Operation Declutter

    I’m decluttering. Properly. I’m writing this post after week one of what I’m calling ‘Operation Declutter’. Those of you who know the real me will know that this isn’t something I’m doing lightly. Stuff has become a real problem in my life. I realised, since coming back from Spain the other week, that the amount of accumulated shit in my home has now reached ridiculous levels and just really needs to be sorted out. This isn’t an easy thing for me to do. I’ve been in my house for four years and somehow, this state of insanity around clutter and stuff has just crept up out of nowhere. I’ve been…

    Thrifting Ain’t Easy

    Thrifting. Who doesn’t need to know about the subtle art of thrifting, really? I know I do. It’s what I like to call ‘being tighter than a nun’s box but not being a misery’. You don’t need me to tell you about the pinch most of us are feeling nowadays. Money’s tighter than Mick Hucknall ever dared mention, especially if, like me, you’re on the self-employed end of the spectrum. But fear not, today I’m going to be banging on about how I manage to survive on little to no income, and hopefully you’ll be able to share your own thrifting tips in the comments too. I’m going to dedicate…

If I had a tenner for the amount of people who are always tired, I’d be Alan bloody Sugar. Now, I’ve got an excuse for being consistently knackered – but do you? If not, maybe it’s time to have a long hard look at your sleep routine, and try out my 5 ways to tidy it up a bit. Sleep routines are for kids. I’m an adult. Yes. Yes you are. An adult who’s probably fucking exhausted every day…

    How Not To Win Friends Or Influence People, Vol. 1

    Towards the end of last year my eyes were rather unceremoniously blinded by the sight of something no one really needs to see. Over various social media channels of mine, I began to receive messages from people I didn’t know. More specifically, men I don’t know. Now, this isn’t news, it happens to lots of people. Unsolicited messages, tweets and the like are bound to happen when you have a profile in the public domain. However what was new to me was the content of these messages. I’ve been fortunate so far to mostly avoid the whole dick pic phenomenon. I say phenomenon like it’s something to marvel at, but…

    Friday Favourites

    Ahh, Friday. The day of the week everyone hails as the end of the working grind and the start of the weekend. Fridays don’t really signal that for me as I work pretty much any and all days that I can, but there’s something about that Friday feeling that never quite goes away, thankfully. So I’ve decided to start a list of Friday Favourites. A bit like #ShitOrLegit, but more generic. These are my favourite things, people, moments etc. from the week gone by. Sometimes it’s hard to pick these things out as my weeks all tend to blur into one, but hopefully Friday Favourites will help me focus on…
