Love knows no age
Remember the teasing when you were a teenager, that the boy or girl you had a crush on was older than you? The bigging up by male friends for being a toy boy?
Why 44% of households have a pet
Within the UK there is an estimated 12 million households with pets. That is 44%. These 12 million homes have around 51 million pets in total. According to news reports the COVID-19 pandemic has led to more people getting the dogs that they have wanted but been putting off. What makes owning a hyper, hungry pooping machine that appealing?
Finding love in a pandemic
Romantic love is a phenomena that has been witnessed in 147 out of 166 cultures but what is it, why do people strive to find it and is it possible while the Covid-19 pandemic is crossing the globe? My partner decided to give me her views on this.
If you tell me to
To be alone can be a lonely time. It can also be an opportunity. With lockdowns, firebreaks and circuit breakers becoming a potential outlook for the future of the world it has raised significant worries for mental health professionals and the human need to be part of a group. Many mental health campaigns are fighting for those who are struggling while being on their own and who are feeling lonely. These campaigns can be seen on most social media platforms, news outlets and posters.

Everyone has heard of human trafficking; everyone knows that children are trafficked from city to city within the UK for sexual exploitation, right? Where did you get your understanding from?

Hold close what is dear to you
Life is a book full of lines, paragraphs and chapters. With each line is a different event, a different experience, a different part of me. There are lines that take up whole pages and chapters that explain a different part of my story. With each biography, novel, memoir, there is a beginning, a middle and an end. With each turn of the page the next fragment of a tale.
A moment of clarity
People say that there are moments in your life when everything becomes clear. I have heard it called 'a light bulb moment', 'a moment of clarity' 'a sudden realisation. They say that these moments are what drive you forwards. Give you direction and slingshot you into the future.
