A Big Thank You & 2015 in Review

I started this blog at Easter, 2015 as an outlet for my random thoughts and to help increase my confidence and push my boundaries.  This time last year, I would never have thought I would have written some of the things that I have, let alone done some of the things I have written about!

A Rant About Sexual Elitism

Several weeks ago, something was retweeted into my Twitter timeline, which made me feel uncomfortable and has played on my mind since. It was from an account that had recently been created to offer private sex parties, by invitation, for couples. Nothing wrong with that at all. The thing that troubled me was that it specified

A Rant About ‘Obesity’

I recently decided to check my body mass index (BMI) on the NHS website. Apparently, I am considered obese as my BMI is 32.9. I am quite heavy and I am of average height for a woman, so I was not surprised by this score. It’s recommended that I should be eating between 1731-2225 calories

A Brief Encounter

 A secret account. Trying to get noticed. Won’t take no for an answer. Persistent messages. Finally chatting. A great rapport. Built slowly over months. Shared secrets. Trusting too easily. A mid-life crisis? A request for a lunch date. A meeting at a station. A pleasant surprise. Can it be the same person? An afternoon of culture. Matchstick men

Secret Twitter Accounts: A Modern Mid-Life Crisis?

One thing that has struck me since I have been using Twitter is the number of ‘secret accounts’ that are out there. The definition of secret presumably being that the ‘other half’ doesn’t know about it. It would appear that we are all looking for something more; a new and exciting dimension to our everyday lives. ‘Humdrum’ was
