10 Jokes to Make You Go Ba Dum Tss – #Blogtober17 Day 10

I really struggled with today’s #Blogtober17 prompt – jokes. I am no good at telling jokes, because I tend to forget the punchline or just tell it wrong. That being said, I’ve always been a lover of jokes! I remember having Smart Alec’s Spooky Jokes for Kids when I was younger and it was great fun.

10 Scrummy Ice Cream Recipes – #Blogtober17 Day 9

“You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream!”   Who’s with me?! I love ice cream, it’s awesome at any time of year. For dessert when you go out for a meal, as a comfort food at home, as a treat on holiday…there is no end of excuses to eat it! One of

Blogtober Day 8 5 Themed Holidays for Geeks

5 Themed Holiday for Geeks – #Blogtober17 Day 8

The idea of a themed holiday is becoming ever more popular, and they are a fantastic way to do something you love whilst exploring somewhere new! And even if you’ve been before, there’s always new and exciting elements to discover! I’m not the kind of person that gets much out of an all inclusive holiday

Blogtober Day 7 In Five Years Time

In 5 Years Time – #Blogtober17 Day 7

5 years ago I’d just finished university. I had a degree I was pretty proud of, and so many career plans and aspirations. It was a pretty exciting time in my life, but also pretty damn terrifying – leaving education to finally enter the ‘real world’ and try to make something of myself! I started

My Favourite Flowers – #Blogtober17 Day 6

I love flowers. I love the life and colour they bring to the room. I love receiving them (although that doesn’t happen very often anymore!) and I love treating myself to them every now and then. The one thing I don’t love is how bad I am at keeping them alive! When I saw that

Blogtober Day 5 Return to education

5 Reasons to Return to Education – #Blogtober17 Day 5

It can be quite hard to return to education, especially if you are a parent. I for one would love to, but I keep telling myself I don’t have the time or money for it. The truth is though, if I were that serious about it I’d find the time and money. Just like I’ve managed to

Blogtober Day 4 Worst Date

The Most Romantic Worst Date – #Blogtober17 Day 4

Have you ever had one of those dates where you could tell they put a lot of effort into it but it still turned out bad? Those dates that would have been pretty romantic if everything hadn’t been wrong? Mine happened whilst I was at uni. It was the start of a new academic year,

One Step Closer to Driving – #Blogtober17 Day 3

Today, the appointed theme is cars. Also today, I took my driving theory test – and passed, thank you very much! I’ve never been a massive fan of cars, and never particularly wanted to drive. For my 18th, my Aunt was very generous and offered me two choices – driving lessons, or a laptop. Naturally (although

Babies: The Expectation – #Blogtober17 Day 2

All women are expected to have babies. Except those women who love other women of course, because then the idea becomes absurd, as if the mothering instinct has disappeared. In such a modern world, I really don’t understand why the idea of two women having kids is still so taboo. I personally find it amazing…especially

All About Me – #Blogtober17 Day 1

This year I have decided to take part in #Blogtober17. I absolutely suck at writing regularly, because I always find things to distract me. I am a brilliant procrastinator! This sounds great fun though, the idea of a community of bloggers getting together to share daily posts on predetermined topics. I thrive on structure, so
