WAS MOVING WITH A BABY THE RIGHT THING TO DO?

Moving out of my Mum’s home at 17 was probably the most impulsive, crazy decision I’ve ever made. We’d been seeing each other just a few weeks but in that time I’d given up my education, the safety and security of my family home and taken up the offer of playing grown-ups with a guy I didn’t really know. At the time, it…

THIRTEEN REASONS WHY

I’ve just finished watching Thirteen Reasons Why and I’m a wreck. I am sobbing, I am heartbroken for a character I deeply sympathised with, I was willing for there to be a twist that she wasn’t dead somehow (that isn’t a spoiler, you find out she’s dead within a minute or two of the first episode).

SIMON AMSTELL — CARNAGE: SWALLOWING THE PAST

Most of my adult life I’ve battled with the ideals of cutting meat from my diet completely.

They are records, memories in the making, sparks to let you relive the entire experience (or at least the highlights!) and it’s a passion of mine to…

WHAT DOES YOUR HOROSCOPE SAY ABOUT YOUR ORGANISATION SKILLS? — #ORGANISEDMESS

I had index cards for all of my important telephone numbers and contacts, I’d refined my personal way of working efficiently and prioritising and…

22 FUNNY THINGS I DID AS A KID

I often like to make a joke to my Dad that he hasn’t got a full mop of hair on top of his head anymore. I remember him having very straight, short black hair when I was quite young and then as I grew older he started shaving it off. He now religiously shaves his head and I wonder what I…
