100 Things Of Happiness

100 Things Of Happiness

Three times. That’s the number of times that I’ve burst into tears today. The second and third times were because of a Buzzed article about what it means to be a good brother, and the first was during the end of the Parks and Recreation episode were Andy and April go and visit the Grand … Continue reading

One Year Down the Line

One Year Down the Line

I talked about this at the start of the month, but that’s not going to stop me talking about it again. This time last year I was in full house-finding mode. But actually, a year ago today my offer on the house I’m living in now was accepted. It was a triumphant day, and you … Continue reading

Late Night Cooking

Late Night Cooking

It’s been one of those days today. My mamma said they’ll be days like this, mamma said. I like a quiet Monday, but swimming 32 lengths, working 8 hours, preparing for this weekend, a gym session, watching my daily episode of Arrow, a meeting about the Thursday night Bonfire, doing a full months shop and … Continue reading

Slow Cooking Goodness

Slow Cooking Goodness

Slow cooking is something that I never thought I’d do. It’s for working women with kids, who rush out of the house early in the morning, and don’t get home till gone 5 o’clock. For some strange reason, I got a slow cooker for Christmas. And since then, it’s stayed in its box. Packed away, waiting … Continue reading

A Fateful Fast Food Encounter

A Fateful Fast Food Encounter

I’ve never really the kind of guy who believes in fate. But today, something changed me. I’ve had the week off work this week and the plan was to go to York on Monday and treat myself rotten. That was the plan, but my sister made a good point. I’m less likely to treat myself … Continue reading

Treat Yo Self!

Treat Yo Self!

For 3 months, maybe even 4, on the side of my blog it’s been counting down to this day: Treat Yo Self Day! 3 years ago, one of the more stand out episodes of Parks and Recreation aired, and Tom & Donna taught us how important it is to treat ourselves. To celebrate the anniversary of … Continue reading

Confidence is the Key

Confidence is the Key

I’d say that I hate it when older people give me life advice when they’re drunk in nightclubs, but after 3 years of it, I’m kind of use to it. So, Saturday night last week and you can betcha I got some much life advice. “Be more confident Chris!” was what they said. So, this … Continue reading
