So this post will probably read like I’m highly contradicting myself, but hey ho.

Generally, when it comes to books/films, I could care less what people decide to like/harp on about. Like the Fault in Our Stars, not my kinda thing, haven’t read the book, won’t see the film, but can appreciate that others like it and generally it’s not doing any harm and I’m sure it’s not a terrible read.


Fifty Shades of Grey. It’s back, everywhere, due to the film. And for the love of god, it uses the word “sandstone” to describe an office four times in one god damn sentence.

Also, this: 

“His voice is warm and husky like dark melted chocolate fudge caramel…or something.”

What is that. How can anyone defend that.

Not to mention Christian Grey is a batshit insane stalker crazy person who creeps me out no end. And yet people swoon over him!

I give up. I can’t do my usual “ah well it’s doing no harm it can’t be that bad” thing. Because it IS that bad. 

P.S. I haven’t read it. My friend and I got it to read together for a laugh on her Kindle, we returned it within ten minutes, it was that badly written. Since then I’ve seen many a post dissecting the content and it’s enough to put anyone off for life. 

Mandy got us tickets to Ascot in September and we’re off to buy fancy dresses and this excites me.

My old school friend Sam came round this weekend and it was lovely and like no time had passed at all.

We were pretty much inseparable in school, but she went to a different college and life happened and basically I’m really glad to have seen her again.

Cosplay isn’t my thing, but if it was my thing, I’d quite like to go to comic con in the knowledge I wouldn’t be groped and harassed.
It’s a shame I’m still reading articles about women who had both these things happen to them this weekend.

I had the inevitable conversation with my friend that comes around every year, around this time.

I love Summer, but only to a point. It’s around now that I start really wanting it to be dark in the morning and evenings, I want cold weather, jumpers, scarves, roast dinners..etc.

All the fun things happen in winter.

  • Halloween
  • Christmas
  • Bonfire night
  • TV shows start up again
  • My birthday ;)
  • Cosy clothes. Coats, jumpers, scarves, boots!
  • Alllllll the new games 
  • Snow!

Basically, all the things I love, happen. And as much as I love BBQ’s and the light evenings, I much prefer cold, windy, winter. 

I did finish Dragon Age though. Been toying with picking up Skyrim yet again, or buying Dragon Age 2. But I’ve heard such terrible things about it that I’m hesitant…I may just wait for the new one.

In the mean time, do I or do I not buy the newest Sim City game?
