I saw on the Daily Prompts page that the prompt for today was ‘Massive’. *Note: for some reason something went weird when uploading this post and it’s saying I uploaded this 7 days ago…if anyone knows why this has happened, feel free to tell me! I ended up thinking that quite a few things have … More Sometimes, It’s Just Hard to Let Go
It’s that moment after stepping out of the consultation room and realising that someone who was (still is) extremely precious, is no longer beside you. That missing presence creates a cavernous hole and the world around you seems different and small because compared to that companion, it is. I’ve shared my thought on pet loss … More Pet Loss Grief Support
My third year and final year at university is drawing to a close. Not only have I realised that I have taken a degree that I have no idea what to do with, but I have also come to terms with the fact that soon I will no longer be receiving student funding and will … More Thrifty Third Year

Literature reveals to us our faults and our achievements. Naturally I have missed out a load of brilliant masterpieces as … More 5 Must Read Poems
Debate time! How do you pronounce *scone*- as A) ‘scon’ or B) ‘scoan’. I purposely didn’t write ‘Scon or Scone’ as the title because it suggests that ‘scone’ is the correct way to say it. When I was a child, I always used to pronounce it as option A. However, no surprise, a classroom debate … More Scone or Scone?
Pizza Express is my go-to restaurant when my family and I fancy a nice meal out. They have good desserts including the classic warm chocolate fudge cake with ice cream! Up until recently, I have always ordered either ice cream on its own (chocolate and/or salted caramel) or the chocolate fudge cake. As brilliant as … More You Should Try This Dessert!
