Moving Tales: Part 2

In Home & Garden, WTF

In my last post about our recent house move I expressed frustration about a series of relatively minor but annoying problems that we’d had so far. The two main issues were the lack of hot water, and a mystery leak. Shortly after posting I started… read full entry →

What a day.

In Budgeting, Personal, WTF

Gaz is away til late tonight so I have 3 options: Catch up on some more work, which I need to do. Catch up on some housework, which I should do. Have a bath and go to bed with a bottle of wine and a… read full entry →

300ft is really quite a lot

In Lifestyle, Personal, WTF

Last week I told you all about Team SCA‘s bloody AMAZING all-female crew winning the 8th leg of the Volvo Ocean Race, and that in honour of their win I was encouraged to take part in a challenge that would test my boundaries. I picked… read full entry →

Risks, boundaries and a 300ft jump

In Lifestyle, Personal, WTF

Back in June 2015 Team SCA won the 8th leg of the Volvo Ocean Race which in its whole, spans 5 continents and over 39000 nautical miles. The first all-female crew to enter the Volvo Ocean Race in more than a decade, the women battled… read full entry →

Roadtrippin’

In WTF

I have covered nearly 550 miles in three days. It wasn’t all intentional, though… As you know, I drove from Broseley to Brighton on Thursday so that I could attend the #BrightonSEO conference on Friday. I managed to do this (the driving) without the aid… read full entry →

A Clean Slate?

In Personal, WTF

I’ve had a potentially absurd idea. I can’t remember what inspired it, but I’m pretty sure that I’m going to go ahead with it. I’ve decided that if I’m going to “fix” whatever is wrong with my mental health at the moment, that the best… read full entry →

Peer Pressure

In WTF

I may have just been bullied into committing to running a half marathon. In December. Despite having only done one short run since I injured my foot. WTF have I done…

Absolutely Gutted

In WTF

I had a bit of a crappy weekend. Bear with me here through another moan, I know I’ve done a lot of it lately. It started on Saturday morning after I picked the kids up from Karl’s mum’s. Within minutes of getting home both of… read full entry →

Oh tits.

In WTF

Just when I thought this week couldn’t get any worse: Large crack in my windscreen, right across my line of vision. Replacement windscreen: £105 + VAT I still have that kidney for sale, if there’s any takers…

Project £20k: Holy F***!

In Budgeting, WTF

I recently mentioned on twitter that I had successfully secured my domain with a .uk TLD, taking my total up to some 43 domains. Domains are cheap — little more than a bottle of wine — why worry about owning a healthy collection, right? Except… read full entry →

I’m having a bad day

In WTF

I’ve had crappy day at work dealing with a backlog of emails, admin and cock-ups. I’ve got a horrible snotty cold, which means my nose is sore from constant wiping. I went to soothe my pains with the last of a tub of Ben &… read full entry →

Running

In Personal, WTF

I registered for parkrun a couple of days ago. :O Katy and Rachael have been talking about it for ages and I’ve been secretly admiring their ever-improving run times whilst definitely not admiring my ever-increasing waistline, knowing that it’s been a long, looong time since… read full entry →
