Our First Home

“Not very romantic, is it?… spending our Valentine’s evening with a mortgage adviser sandwiched between us…” I exclaimed, only half joking.

“I am doing something that shows I want to spend the rest of my life with you” he replied, “what could be more romantic?”

I melted – how could I argue with that?

Galentine’s Day

The 13th of February simply used to be the day before Valentine’s Day – the day when we rushed out to get a heart-covered card that would express exactly how much we loved someone, whether that be openly or from afar. Over the last few years, however, it has become better known as Galentine’s Day.

Galentine’s Day is a day for women to celebrate their female friendships because, lets face it, they are just as important as our romantic ones. If we have one specific day a year where we shower our significant other with love, why shouldn’t we have one for our friends as well? View Post

2016: the worst year ever?

I think it is safe to say that many of us were happy to bid good riddance to last year.

Who knew, as we went into 2016 with our inspirational resolutions, that we would look backwards on 12 months that saw the world lose so many icons – Prince, Bowie, George Michael and Muhammad Ali – to name a few – alongside so many more atrocious terrorist attacks. And, that we would be heading into 2017, with the promise of Donald Trump taking over the most powerful job in the world and Brexit becoming a reality.

The one where I married my best friend

The cast of Friends may have shut the door to Monica’s apartment for the last time 12 years ago but, after 10 series across 10 years (and constant reruns), this sitcom won’t be forgotten about any time soon. Now, Comedy Central’s FriendsFest is celebrating Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Ross, Joey and Chandler by providing the opportunity for fans to walk through, and take photos on, the iconic set. View Post

The Day I Went to Prison

 I have driven past Reading Prison countless times without really giving it a second thought. Little did I know that one day I would walk through those doors and into a cell.

I had never stepped foot into a prison before and I never expected I ever would… until that day.

What had she done? You are wondering. Drunk and disorderly? Possibly. Murder? Unlikely. Indecent exposure? Maybe.
