When my friends used to tell me to leave my relationship whilst I still can, I never listened. They would tell me I was in an abusive relationship and it was dangerous, but how could it be when he had never hit me? How could it be when he had never threatened to punch me or tried to strangle me?
I understand now. It has been just under three years since we broke up, and I can finally admit I was in a abusive relationship. Everybody else could see it; apart from me. Because Love isblind.
When we first got together, things were great. I fell for him straight away and it was the first time I could honestly say that I only have eyes for him. Things were going smoothly, yet whenever we came to any kind of obstacle that affected our relationship, it was always my fault. Continue reading →
Something has happened to me lately that has changed things for me in the best way I can imagine. I don’t know whether I am crazy from being on cloud 9, or whether this is actually fate but it has made me want to share my journey with you right now. What I am going through, you will here about.
I guess its a current blog. But I am going to try and make it as interesting as I possibly can. I apologise for a lack of posts again – work has been absolutely manic over the Christmas period – but I would love it if you all followed my journey with me!!
I feel like I am in a fish bowl.. Not literally squashed in a tiny little bowl, but sat here with everybody stopping to look at me.. I’m sure you can understand what I mean when I come around to explaining it…
I’m sat in work at the moment. It’s a pretty quiet day today so I thought I would bring in my notebook and get writing whilst it’s quiet. Our shop is on the corner of a little arcade and there is a constant flow of people walking past day in day out having a nose. Don’t get me wrong, the location is 100% perfect for business. We get so many customers just from walking past and seeing us as well as word of mouth. Continue reading →
Yes, it’s me – I’m back. As many of you know, I have taken time off blogging. Since moving home from university I seem to have lost a lot of motivation for various reasons.
I have missed blogging and you guys so much, but I just couldn’t seem to face it for the last month or so. I am determined to get back into regular blogging again though, so I thought I would do a tag post today in order to ease myself back into it.
I hope to find you all well, and I look forward to catching up with you and your blogs again! 🙂
The tag I am going to do today is – “Get To Know Me’ Tag: 21 Questions. I am not actually sure where this tag originated from, as I just Googled different tags I could do, and this one looked like a great one to ease myself back in.
At the moment, job hunting feels like a lose-lose situation.
After applying for what seems like a hundred jobs, I either get a reply saying that I am too qualified; a reply saying that I don’t have enough experience; or no reply at all.
I understand the fact that companies would rather employ somebody who knows what they are doing, therefore require less time being taught procedures, but that doesn’t help those who don’t quite have enough experience yet.
For all they know, I, like many others could extremely capable of doing the job and able to learn the procedures very quickly; but they don’t even give us a chance. Despite the fact I have a degree within that sector, they opt for somebody who has more experience than me within the industry to save them time and money teaching unexperienced recruits.

This time last year, my world was falling apart and I was on a downwards spiral that just kept going down.
I tragically lost a wonderful friend who had her whole life ahead of her, my boyfriend (now ex) was going through a phase in which he was ignoring me for no reason but for his own amusement, and my anxiety and depression had become severely uncontrollable.
If you asked me this time last year “where do you see yourself in a years time?”, I wouldn’t honestly be able to answer. I couldn’t even see ahead to the following day, yet alone the following year. I couldn’t imagine ever getting out of the deep hole I had fallen into – as far as I was aware, there was no way out.
However, I have completely surprised myself. A year ago I would never have imagined where I would be in life today. To be honest, it was my family who got me through the traumatic times and helped me back onto my feet – their love and support got me to where I am today.
Abigail has to get used to the life of singledom all over again after breaking up with her boyfriend of seven years. With help from her womanizing flatmate, Robert, Abigail goes on dates and uses the tips and advice that Robert provides for her to help get through and enjoy each date.
1) Be cool
2) Be detached
3) Act brutal
4) Stay in control
5) Be bulletproof
6) Always leave them before they leave you
However, with Robert being a notorious ladies man, will taking his advice turn her into a bit of a player too? The book follows Abigail as she goes from date to date, until she finally meets Mr. Right and forgets about everything that Robert has taught her… Will it end in heartbreak, or will she keep cool, calm and bulletproof?
I had so much fun reading this book! Not only was it funny at times, but it was also actually rather relatable. Being single myself, I could most definitely relate to many of the feelings that Abigail was going through. Although I love chick-lit, this book felt different from other books I have read before – it’s not very often you read about a newly single woman acting like a dude!
