This Years Love

Hello First of all – happy 2018, may it be a really great one for you and those you love. So sorry to not be posting very often these days – change of pace of things and all that. I want to ramble on about the good, the bad and the downright mean things I… Continue reading This Years Love


Review: Together Apart by Natalie K Martin

(Pls note this review contains a trigger warning at the bottom. The review itself does not contain a trigger). Adam somehow got it wrong.

Is It Ok to Love Again So Swiftly?

I’ve idly noticed that chart topper Taylor Swift has now hooked up with Bond-tipped actor Tom Hiddleston, just a couple of weeks or so since splitting from Calvin Harris.

Twelve years ago today, a boy sat on a worn green bench in a bar and turned to the girl with a broken heart sat next to him. He promptly snogged her face off.

Just Another Day Without You…

Someone recently told me that, when you become recently bereaved, you are reminded of all of the other bereavements you have already had. Those long ago forgotten bits of hell you have (or have not) come to terms with from before, all come flooding back. There is also this horrible fear that you get.

A Decade Since I Graduated…

This month, July 2014, marks exactly ten years since I graduated. I remember the day I received my degree results.
