I know you can’t do anything about it. I don’t think I can do anything about it. I just wanted to share the burden. We’re all suffering enough without you, you little bastard.
The time is ripe for another of these. Remember when the main source of conversation was ‘Poor Caroline Flack. We should all take steps to be kinder, right?’ Now it seems to be ‘Fuck you I want 8,000 toilet rolls.’ BUT. Hairdressers have stopped stocking those bullshit gossip magazines. Ironically, we could probably use them […]
I’m a writer and have a mini-but-growing stationery business. I also work in marketing. Thus, most of my day and quite a bit of my evenings are spent trying to get consumers (you) to buy into brands (my batshit stories and smartarse pencils, or my clients’ very sensible businesses).

In the spirit of […]
Inspired by Maggie Steifvater, I have compiled an out-of-order list of things that have happened to me this decade.
