This week has been so busy. I have been rushed off my paws. I have had not a moment to write.

But it’s Friday. I listened to Beyonce on the way to work and I am now at my desk with a massive coffee. Life ain’t bad.


A great day to be alive

21 Nov


I had a blissful day. Just look at how it started. A chilled red velvet latte on the beach. Could a girl ask for anything more?

(By the way, no trouble getting parked at the beach, but serious issues getting parked at Dunkin Donuts. I’m not surprised. Those guys really know what they are doing with sugar and caffeine.)

Anyway. I digress.

I heard a couple of old men talking on the beach. One said to the other, “Another great day to be alive.”

For the first time in a very long time, I’ve got to agree.

Three reasons to smile

Is it good things or bad things that happen in threes?

I have a feeling it’s actually bad things. But – fear not  – this is a happy post. Three good things happened today.

  1. My presentation went great. In fact, it was two hours long and for about an hour and a half of that I didn’t even think about my ex. Phew. This is perhaps the longest that I haven’t thought about him since the pizza of doom. Yay me.
  2. Sour Apple Chewits were 4/£1 in Tesco. I don’t need to explain why this pleased me.
  3. One of my favourite blogger buddies IntoTheBeauty nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award.

IntoTheBeauty has taste in writing, men and whiskey – and has been an incredible support to me for the past couple of months. So I value her nomination very much indeed. Thank you, buddy.


Apparently I now have to share seven things about myself that you might not otherwise know. And then nominate fifteen other blogs. Gosh, I’m all about the numbers and lists this evening.

Here we go. You might not know:

  1. My favourite thing is black coffee.
  2. My other favourite thing is olives.
  3. I’m convinced that I once got bitten by a ghost (in a graveyard in Key West).
  4. I can name the 50 states of America in alphabetical order and at an alarming pace.
  5. I wish I was Japanese.
  6. I tried to do a week-long juice detox once. I bought all the fruit and veg – 76 apples no less – and got to work with the juicing. Four hours into the detox I started throwing up uncontrollably at work and had to go home sick. I aborted the detox and spent the afternoon eating biscuits.
  7. I wear an animal every day. Not an actual animal or fur, but a squirrel-themed piece of jewelry or unicorn socks, penguin dress, panda T-shirt. You get the idea.

And my fifteen blogs. Great reading for anyone (especially poor, broken hearted cats like myself).

  1. Time is of the Essence
  2. Online dating – Why I’ll soon be a crazy cat lady
  3. Absence of Malice
  4. The Wholehearted Blog
  5. princessdeficit
  6. thingsmyexsaid
  7. needtoletgo
  8. You’re Just A Dumbass
  9. Dealbreakrs
  10. That Time In My Twenties
  11. Peace, Love & Diet Coke
  12. Lessons from the end of a marriage
  13. So We Broke-Up
  14. TheReporterandTheGirlMINUSTheSuperman
  15. lovetheatrics

That’s me, all listed out for the evening, buddies. Last night I literally cried myself to sleep. I didn’t even know that was actually possible. I guess crying is pretty tiring. Tonight I’m going to feel good and try to focus on lovely things like blog buddies, coffee, upcoming holidays, and unicorns.

Cheerful autumn thoughts

28 Oct


My blog has been a little morose of late. I can imagine you are all tired of hearing me whine. I’m worse than Carrie Bradshaw at her most self-centred (when she cheats on Aidan).

So here’s some good stuff I want to share:

1. The storm that is about to “devastate” London (weather people are so dramatic. I think it’s an inferiority thing from working alongside journos who are reporting on politics and world events and crime, while they are reporting on clouds and stuff) has the same name as my sister. Jude.

2. The leaves that have all been shaken from the trees are very pretty.

3. I’m working in a coffee shop today with my fellow Creative Director. Team planning, business planning, etc etc. it’s easier to do this stuff than come up with amazing creative ideas when your brain is determined to be sad and focused on your ex. Coffee is delicious.

There we go. Just some ramblings. Just because.

Jude’s on the way…
