Before I start a #notallmums revolution (god help us) let me just say that yes, not all mums, but most mums to an extent, whether they mean to or not, just LOVE to 'Mumsplain'. I know that loads of you are reading this right now and you are enraged, you can’t BELIEVE I could say such a thing, but hear me out.
Dogs are so great. I often wonder what I did with my life before I had dogs, I definitely had more free time, a cleaner house, and a lot more money, but who needs time and money and cleanliness when you have a snoring, furry pillow?
Music is amazing, isn’t it? It can be sexy, angry, emotive, calming… It can make you feel all types of way. Make you relate to the artist, bring you back to certain times in your life, make you remember (sometimes fondly and sometimes not) certain people.
We found out I was pregnant on the 16th of May, after enjoying a gorgeous last minute 10 days in Turkey so I could recover from an acute hamstring injury without feeling TOO depressed, I couldn’t help but be slightly confused by the absence of my period.
I am depressed. Please stop telling me to "cheer up." I remember the first time I heard the word "depression." I was 11 and in my first year at secondary school. My best friend at the time had obviously just learnt that this word meant "upset" or "sad" or any adjective that similarly describes a slightly disappointed or uneasy emotion or feeling. She used it to describe anything from there not being the dessert she liked in the lunch hall to having to do P.E. class (to be fair, a pretty depressing experience). I didn’t realise how serious it was to claim you were "depressed." At that age it’s very easy to throw around words without knowing the meaning. Unfortunately, we seem to continue to do so as adults. I actually just did, by claiming that P/E claim was depressing.
Whether you are in a brand new relationship or long-term and going strong, it is important to keep things exciting. You know when you get comfortable and every day is a couch day? That’s fine! You can’t have date nights and holidays continuously, especially in the long term when being in each other's lives becomes the norm, but the occasional spontaneous sexy night out is always a welcome surprise and will build memories that you can relive forever. Here are a few of my favourite super sexy date nights that WON’T break your bank account.
Travelling is wonderful. It is my favourite thing to do, but my god does it end up being expensive if you haven’t planned it correctly. I once booked a one-way ticket to Norway with the idea of traveling around the country with nothing planned. It was the best experience of my life. It was also the most expensive. Being sporadic is great, but I wish I had done some of these things before that trip to make it more financially viable and also so I could have stayed longer!
It’s hard to hold my tongue when I hear people, particularly men, claim that a female who has worked in the sex industry is not allowed an opinion, certain rights, or is not a ‘credible’ source of information.
