Moving On To 2107

As I sit here and think about everything that has happened over the past 12 months, I can’t help, but be pleased that 2016 is finally over.

My love life has been dull and barely existent. And to be fair the bits that have existed, I really wish hadn’t.

My social life and health has been poor, both clearly linked. Due to back problems and stress I just haven’t been as active and that has had a knock on effect to other parts of my life.

My work life has been stale, unrewarding and stressful. I mean I broke my damn toe because of my frustration at work… that’s not normal.

That said, despite all the negativity 2016 has brought, I can’t help but be somewhat optimistic for 2017.

I’m starting the year back on track with my blog, even though the social media side is still lagging, the actual site is getting regular content. I have a big night out planned for the end of January which should be good for both my social life and my working relationships. I’m starting 2017 with a 2-grand pay raise. So, 2017 isn’t looking hopeless by any means. There’s actually a lot to looking forward to.

I just hope it stays moving in that direction. And on that oddly positive note, I am going to leave you and make an early start on my New Years drinking. But, before I go, I have this question for you; what are you optimistic for in 2017? Let me know in the comment box below and as always, stay and play safe.

Unavailable Men

When I sit, and think about my problems when it comes to dating it all boils down to one main issue; unavailable men.

Mr. X is the prime example, he’s married now. No matter what there is or was or what feeling may be there. He is married.

There's a guy at work that keeps hinting he’s unhappy in his relationship and wants to take me out, but the bottom line being he’s in a relationship. There’s no point in entertaining him…. He’s unavailable.

This seems to be a trend lately and it really needs to stop, I am 30 next year, and it’s about fucking time I go at least got one aspect of my life together.  I’m not saying I need to find love, I just want the options the universe presents to be actual options. I don’t think that’s too much to ask really.

Anyways, I’m back at work tonight for my last 4 before Christmas and I think I am going to go and get dressed and put some fuel in my car to save running around tonight. But before I go I have this question for you, what aspect of your life do you wish you could get your shit together in? Let me know in the comment box below and as always, stay and play safe.

Repeating History

Let me start this post by fully acknowledging I’m an idiot who clearly hasn’t learned from the past. Do you remember a post I did in May 2015 called Skulls are Softer than Poles? In that post I explained that I lost my temper at work kicked a post, broke my toe. You know because I’m an adult.

Last week at work after dealing with a menopausal bitch driver and a co-worker who has no understanding of time, I lost my temper. I didn’t kick a pole this time, apparently, I learned something. However, I did kick a large yellow grit container resulting in the same thing… I broke my toe… Once again because clearly, I’m an adult.

Last time I forgot how to be an adult and melted down like Britany Spears 2007. I followed up by quitting my job. I decided no job was worth being so upset over. This time, I’m not sure what my plan is. My stress level was not helped by the fact I was forced into a situation I didn’t want to be in. Things that night were not the norm. That said, I am not happy where I am. 

Anyways, I won’t be making any life decisions tonight and it is time for some more pain killers and to get some sleep, because broken toe or not, I’m back in hell tomorrow. But before I go, I do have this question for you; What do you do to stay calm? Let me know in the comments below and as always stay and play safe.

Work Review

I’m a fairly nocturnal person, hence why night shifts have never bothered me. Yet for some reason on my first shift in my body refused to sleep and I’m awake before the damn birds. Maybe this lack of sleep is why my boss thinks I’m “aggressive”. Personally, I think my aggressiveness is triggered idiots, but I’m sure others won’t see it that way.

My Christmas review is coming up, hence why all this crap is running around my mind. Considering last year, I put my hand through a wall after my review, I’m hoping this one goes slightly better.  

Seeing as I haven’t actually seen my boss since my July review, where he called me “aggressive”, I can’t see this going well. Whatever he bases it on will be second hand rhetoric and that can’t be good for me, since being a “people person” isn’t a skill I excel in these days.

Anyways, wish me luck as I face another week of peak season in transport. But before I go, I have this question for you; what do you do to stay calm and non-aggressive at work? Let me know in the comment box below. And as always stay and play safe.

I can’t believe it’s December already. I was lying in bed, unable to sleep thinking about the end of the year and what I’ve achieved in 2016.

And the answer to the above question is not a fucking lot.

Work wise I’m probably a step backwards. I haven’t been the most people pleasing person this year and that’s not ideal for job progression.  My boss likes kiss asses and that's just not me.

Blog wise; I ended up taking a lot of time off and am not anywhere near where I want to be with it.

Personal life remains pretty unchanged.

My love life is a distant memory and is looking unlikely to change anytime soon.

2016 hasn’t been the most productive year. It’s not been bad by any means, it’s just… been.

Anyways, that’s just what’s floating around my mind in the middle of the night. I think I am going to go and try and get some sleep. But before I go, I have this questions for you; how has 2016 been for you? Let me know in the comment box below and as always, stay and play safe.

12 Wasted, but Wonderful Days

Today is my last day of 12 wonderful, magical days off work and I’m pleased to say I’ve done not a damn thing during that time. Hell, I think I’ve only been out of my pajamas once. And as unproductive as it’s been, it’s felt fantastic.

My real-life job has been so stressful lately, I thought about taking my old job back.  I think my brain and body needed to veg. It needed to reboot and restart. And mindless tasks like online shopping, playing computer games and binge watching House is just what I needed to feel less like I’m one moaning driver away from being arrested for attempted murder.

Despite wasting 12 days, I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat. That said, it is Black Friday and I have some major online shopping to do before I return to the grind tomorrow night. But before I go I have this question for you; what has been your most relaxing holiday? Let me know in the comment box below and as always stay and play safe.

All Caught Up

It appears my blog has caught up with reality, due in large part to me spending the past 3 weeks suffering with that I can only assume at this point was the plague.

It feels weird knowing when I’m done writing and editing this post there will be no delay. I got kind of use to it. I know Mr. X would send me a message questioning something I wrote, most of the time I wouldn’t have a clue what he was on about. I’d have to go back and re-read my post…… and still not reply….. I was super sick.

I guess I should bring you up speed; Martin is dead, he’s been dead for well over a month. I decided I was too old to play games and frankly got bored.

I haven’t spoken to Mr. X, like I said I was sick and frankly, I’m still not 100%. I’m still trying to rest up, hence why this post is going to be short.

I’m currently on holiday from work, which is nice because I’m not in love with my job at the moment.  Something I’m planning on addressing while I’m off.

Anyways, I’m going to go and get some more sleep. Sorry, this is a bit of a throwaway post, but thanks to the bug I had, if my doctor is going to be believed, I’m going to worn down for a few weeks. Before I go, I have this question for you; what is your favorite way to recover from an illness? Let me know in the comment box below. And as always stay and play safe.

Friday, 11 November 2016


I’m having issue I don’t normally have, I can’t seem to make a solid judgment on Martin. Normally I know pretty quickly whether a guy is worth my time or a complete waste of space, but not this time. For whatever reason, when it comes to him, my mind keeps changing.

I was ready to write him off less than 6 days after I wrote my last post, I had decided he was a waste of time. Then my mind was swayed and I decided to let things play on. Then 2 days ago I had decided enough was enough and I was done. Then last night I swayed back to the play on position. 

I’m not really sure what the issue is; he hadn’t done anything major to be written off, I just get that time waster vibe and I’m getting a little old for time wasters. That said, he hasn’t done anything major to lead me to believe there’s anything there either.

He’s kind of just…. There. And, if I wanted just a giant blob of a man that there was no future with, I have Mr. X. I don’t need another romantic nothing, the role is already cast. Romantic love interested on the other hand…. Open casting call going on. However, the casting director is a major bitch and really hard to please.

It’s weird, my head isn’t even all over the place like I’d normally expect. it’s as if I’m deciding to read junk mail first or just throw it away unopened. Maybe, just maybe, I am not that into him. That said…. He is hot, really, really hot.

Anyways, I am going to go and grab a shower and then hopefully finish up a few more posts. We’re reaching peak season at work and if I got a head now, I’ll have no hope come December. But before I go, I had this question for you, is there anything wrong with not being decided on a relationship? Let me know your thoughts in the comment box below and as always, stay and play, safe.

Blast from The Past

It’s not often I received a friend request that actually makes me smile, normally there from what I call “green card man, I’m sure you know that type, creepy man from a dodgy part of the globe, whose request you instant decline.  However, last week was different, I received a request from someone who instantly put a smile on my face, a complete blast from the past.

When I worked for my previous company, before we moved locations, there was this lad in the warehouse, I’m going to call him Martin. He was one of the day shift supervisors, he was well put together, funny, knew shit, the only downfall he had was he was a little younger than me. That said, even back then I was willing to overlook that, which is completely unheard of, we all know I don’t do younger men.

Our paths didn’t cross too often, since I worked nights and he did days, but when they did, we’d always chat and joke around and flirt a little. But nothing ever came of it. When it came to light the site was closing, he joined the army and I stayed with the company. And with that we lost contact.

Then last week his name popped up in my friend requests, I knew who was it was straight away and I couldn’t help but smile. That said, I didn’t read a lot into it, ex co-workers add each other all the time. We had something like 12 friends in common, so odds are I just popped up as a suggestion. I accepted his request and started getting ready for work.

Less than 5 minutes later he popped up in my chat. It was pretty standard at first, I was a little shocked he remembered so much about me, it has been nearly 5 years. We continued messaging while I was at work that night, and then the message got a little flirty and started ending with “xx”. I don’t read a lot into that, but it’s a positive sign.

We continued to message for a few days, getting more and more flirty but nothing even PG-13. Just feeling each other out and trying to figure out each other intent. I’d say, neither of us have completely worked each other out yet. I’m not sure if he’s after a hook up or more. He’s in the army so I always put my money on just sex, but that wasn't his style when I worked with him. My other concern is he’s a little out of my league, words I never thought I’d have to say.  That said, I’m going to play the game and see where it goes. I mean Mr. X got me and I’m way the hell out of his league.

I haven’t been able to speak to Martin in a few days, he’s away on exercise, but once he’s back Friday I’m looking forward to seeing what’s there. And as I always say, if nothing else, I should get a few good blogs out of it.

Anyways, I am going to go and get some sleep, it’s been a long few days. But before I go I have this question for you, have you ever dated anyone out of your league and how did it end? Let me know in the comment box below and as always stay and play safe.

The Mr. X Relationship

I always get a lot of questions about Mr. X and my relationship, and I get it, we have a weird fucking relationship. I’d be curious too. A lot of you were here and went through it all with me and to think I’d still have anything to do with him boggles your minds. I completely understand and if I were in your shoes…. I’d question my sanity too.

I can categorically say, if he ever actually had the title of boyfriend, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. He'd be dead to me, no second changes, or thirds. He’d be dead. He’s survived all this time on a technicality.

Because our whole relationship has existed in this grey area, I’ve been able to tell myself the feeling I felt were unjust. I had no right to feel that way. I’m a perfectly sane, crazy person so I know the above to be untrue and I have every right to feel whatever I felt. However, it allowed to get to a place where I could try and understand the other side and forgive and more importantly grow.

Over the years, I’ve become incredibly grateful to Mr. X for the growth. I know without a doubt; I wouldn’t be me if it wasn’t for the saga that was him. Don’t get me wrong, life isn’t perfect. But I’d be married to the wrong man, living a life I didn’t want, if it wasn’t for him. In a really fucked up way he saved me. I was headed down the wrong path, one I knew was wrong for me, but didn’t have the strength to end it. Surviving him gave me that strength.

Maybe it’s Stockholm syndrome, but I will always have a soft spot for Mr. X and for whatever reason he’ll probably always have an interest in me. I’m not sure what his reasons are, I stopped trying to figure out his motives years ago. But it’s almost like he has feeling, I suspect it’s a software glitch.

I hope this answered some of your questions, and hopefully didn’t raise too many more. My simple summation is, he’s a friend, that shouldn’t be a friend, that is a friend.

Anyways, I am going to go, I have a sexy man I have to message back, look forward to those details in my next post. But, before I go I have this question for you, do you have any friends, that shouldn’t be friends, that are friends? Let me know your stories in the comment box below.

“If Mr. X can find someone you shouldn’t have any problems.” That might be my favourite line I’ve heard all year.

I want to straighten something out with the universe; I am not single because I cannot find anyone. I am single because I rather be alone, I happen to enjoy my own company and other people are kind of assholes. It seems like a no brainer to me.

I’m aware that sounds horrible but, I spend a minimum of 48 hours a week dealing with whiny cry baby men at work, and rightly or wrongly just the thought of having to deal with one at home makes me want to take up serial killing.

“You’ll change your tone when you meet the right man”, I hear you and maybe your right, but I have no will to try and locate this magic man, or even hearing him out if he happens upon me. I think at this point he’d have to tase me and tie me to a chair for me to take notice.

Maybe this is a sign I need a new job, or maybe that Mr. X did change me or maybe I’m just grumpy and getting old, who knows. But right now I’m choosing to embrace my grumpy singledom.

Anyways, you gorgeous people, I am going to go and enjoy the rest of the day before I go back to work tomorrow, but before I do I have this question for you; why is being single looked down on? Let me know your thoughts in the comment box below. And as always, stay and play safe.

During a recent trip to Manchester to visit a work friend, I got quizzed on why I wouldn’t give out my URL. I was asked why if I want my blog to get hits and grow, why I don’t tell everyone. Since I get this type of question a fair bit, I thought I’d address it here.

The oversimplified answer is; I protect my URL for an easy life. I use to, many moons ago, share it freely and it resulted in more drama than one person should have to deal with. So when I moved my blog here, I decided I needed to protect myself from that. It hasn’t worked completely; I’ve been threatened with a few lawsuits, but that’s all the more reason to limit the possible damage. I’m not shy about what I do, I just need a little bit of a wall.

The less simple answer is; my blog isn’t about me…. Let me try and explain without sounding like a crazy(er) person. When you watch a vlog your opinion is swayed before anything is even said. We’re all shallow to some level. By keeping my anonymity, this place becomes about my stories, experiences and opinions and not about me per se. It allows us to connect on the experiences and opinions rather than on who we are.

I hope that makes sense and if not I’ll blame it on still being a little rusty and whole lot crazy. Before I go I’m going to leave you with this question; what question do you always get from your friends? Let me know in the comment box below. And as always, stay and play safe.

Emotionally Out of Whack

I’ve often said I blog to keep myself sane, and I think the past few months may have proven that fact. Admittedly, my back has been playing up which hasn’t made things any easier, but even bearing that in mind, I’ve been incredibly snappy and bitchy and oh so close to murderous lately.

I was so dumb, I didn’t even put two and two together until I started contemplating quitting my blog. I was lying in bed thinking about all the reason I blog and what I enjoy about it and if there’s been about I’ve been missing and it just slapped me in the face.

I have been missing this release, and without having this safe place to conduct these somewhat controlled releases I’ve just been snapping and going at people with little provocation.

I may be a self-proclaimed bitch, but that isn’t me. I tend to have decent self-control and an impressive ability to bite my tongue, a skill I mastered thanks to my many years of customer service work. Snapping like I have been doing, has been a little scary. It’s felt like it’s only a matter of time before I do something I may regret.

I’m hoping my return to blogging will help balance things out and hopefully make me a little more tolerable. Because I’m starting to piss even myself off. Which is almost impressive when you think about it.

Anyways, you sexy beasts, I am going to go and grab a shower and try and get through the day without hitting anyone, but before I do I will leave you with this question. What do you do to keep you your emotions in whack? Let me know in the comment box below. And as always, stay and play safe.

Happy October Strangers

Happy October! I guess I should start by addressing the naked ghost in the room, where have I been for the past 5 months?

And I wish I had a more exciting answer for you’ll. I’ve just been an uninspired, lazy blogger, and rather than just push through I haven’t been writing. And that hasn’t been limited to my blog. I haven’t done any stories, or script work. I haven’t even been making the effort to go to improv. I’ve just been checked out.

So why am I back? Good question. I have recently had a lot of my blogger friends call it quits and it made me question my own blog mortality. And, after a lot of thoughtI’m not ready to die.

Coming to the above conclusion, I also came to the realization that if I'm not ready for the blog to die, I better write or it’s as good as gone anyways.  So here I am, back and rusty as hell.

I’m jumping right back into my Friday schedule, I know today is Saturday, but my weird brain just liked the sound of the starting on the 1st rather than the 30th better. Just like when I was actually writing before, I will be pre-writing most my post just to make sure you guys have content on the Friday.

I just want to thank you guys in advance for bearing with me while I try and shake off the rust. And thank you for still being here, I’m can honestly say I don’t think I would be if I was a reader but, that’s why you guys are awesome. Thank you guys, and as always, stay and play safe.

It's April... When Did That Happen

So apparently April is a thing, I’m not quite sure when it happened…. But it did and I don’t like it. I’m not where I wanted to be by April, I had a plan and evidence that plan went out the window.
I wanted to have my shit together by now, I wanted to have my blog in order, my work / personal life balanced out. That hasn’t really happened. I’m 29 in just over a month, at some point I have to get my shit together and be an adult… Even if I don’t want to.

29 is a scary age to me, that’s when I always thought I’d settle down, get married, have kids and that’s pretty much not happening now. Married, mortgage, kids…. That’s the plan and that’s not a year or two plan. Also for that plan to even work, I’d have to find a guy I can stand and right now, everyone gets on my nerves. I’s just not a people person these days.

Maybe I’m going to have to have a long look at my plan because clearly at the minute it’s not working.

Anyways, I’m going to go and get some sleep, I’m back at work tomorrow and if the last two weeks are anything to go by… it’s going to be a long week. But before I go I have this question for you, what is your scary grown up, have your shit together age? Let me know in the comment box below and as always stay and play safe.

Skin Care

Since I’ve been doing the beauty box unboxing, I’ve had a few requests to post my skin care routine. As you guys know I’m not a beauty guru by any means, but I do enjoy my makeup and skin care. And if knowing my skin type and the products I use, help you understand my opinions better… what the heck.

I have dry, mildly dehydrated skin and a bit of rosacea. So obviously moisture and exfoliation is the name of the game in my skin care routine. I am aware most of the products I use aren’t cheap, but they work and I see results, so I don’t mind investing in them…. It’ll save on a facelift later in life.  

Let's start at the beginning; The first thing I’ll do is cleanse my face. I’ll either go in with a cleansing oil if I’m removing makeup or if not I’ll go in with a micellar water. Then I go in with a toner just to make sure anything is off. I’m not brand loyal on any of these steps so I change these up all the time.

Once my face is dry, if I’m going to use a chemical exfoliate this when I’ll use it. Sarah Chapman Overnight Exfloliating Booster and Sunday Riley Good Genes are my two favourites That said, I hands down prefer Good Genes and I actually like using it during the day rather than at night. 
While I’m waiting for the exfoliant to eat away at my dead skin I go in with my eye care. First an eye serum, then my eye cream. I’ll be honest, I’m not in love with either of the products I’m using at the minute. I bought the serum because of retinol in it, but so far I’m not seeing any results. And the eye cream is just ok… not worth the price tag. 

The other thing I do while my dead skin is being eaten away is I go in with a lip balm, you can’t beat Aquaphor for the price, it just does a good job. If my lips are a little more on the chapped side, I’ll use Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid, which does a pretty good job of getting them back in shape. 

If I haven’t used a chemical exfoliator, just after I wash my face and before I do my eyes and lips I’ll go in a facial oil. Which oil I use depends on what my face needs. I tend to do 2 nights Luna, then 1 night Peter Thomas Roth 3% Retinoid Plus, but that’s more just what happens rather than a rule.

Both products have Retinol in them, be it in different forms and strengths. Both are fantastic products and have a fairly clean ingredient deck. My skin likes Luna better but, there’s more Retinol in the Peter Thomas Roth product and that can take time for skin to adjust to. If I had to pick one I’d pick Luna, but I suspect the 3% will be better for my skin in the long run.

Once either my exfoliator is completely dry or I’ve let my oil sink in for at least 10 minutes then I go in with a moisturizer. Either Sunday Riley Tidal or if my skin is in alligator mode First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I only use the First Aid Beauty cream on the bits of my face that are alligator like and only if it’s so bad it hurts. It has a habit of clogging my pores so if I can help it, I won’t use it.

The Sunday Riley on the other hand is awesome, and I haven’t had to use the other since I started using it. My dry skin loves Tidal between the hyaluronic acid and the tamarind (which according to new studies is more effective than hyaluronic acid) my skin feels and looks moisturized after I use it. It also has papain enzymes, which and exfoliate. And we know how much I like them. 

The are 3 other products I want to mention, I don’t use them every day, but I use them often enough to know I loved them. The first is Benton’s Snail Bee High Content Essence. If you can get over the ingredients (snail secretion and bee venom) this product is awesome. I like to use it when my rosacea is bad. I’ll just use it and a moisturizer and call it a day.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir; complete princess product it does nothing for your skin, yet something about the spray and the smell it takes away all my stress and I love it.

The last product I just had to mention is Kate Summerville ExfoliKate. This stuff it’s stupid expensive, but I think I’d sell a kidney for it. It’s magic. I use it about every 10-12 days and it’s not pleasant, but once I’m done my skin is smooth as a baby’s butt. Any dry, flaky patches I had are gone. I’ve tried a lot of these type products over the years and this is the only one that actually works. I just wish the price tag wasn’t so high.

Anyways, you sexy people, that’s my skin care routine, not sure how interesting it was but, I could hear my bank account crying just looking at the products. Before I go I will leave you with this question, what eye products do you use? I'm always on the hunt for a new one. Let me know in the comment box below. And as always stay and play safe.

Math Is Against Me

I was talking with one of my drivers about how I always seem to be sick on my days off. I explained to him it’s the price you tend to pay when you work 4 on, 4 off, and when you think about it, it kind of makes sense.

When you work 4 on, 4 off, you don’t tend to allow yourself to get fully better. The average cold or flu lasts 7-10 days.  If we start getting sick on our 3rd or 4th shift in, it’s normally at its worst by our 1st or 2nd day off. 2 or 3 days later, as you do with the flu, you feel better. And that puts you right at the start of your work week. The problem being, you’re not better, you’re just better than you were.  And your mind will tell you, you’ve been in bed for 4 days, you're better and to go to work! The math, on the other hand, will tell you it’s only been 5 or 6 days since you got ill, despite what you think, you’re not better.

But, because nobody ever listens to math; so you go to work, and due to another mathematical equation that is working against, 4 days later, when your work week is done, you’re still sick, probably sicker than you were 4 days ago and the cycle continues.

There is another math equation that works against you and is probably the reason you got sick in the first place and the reason your recovery will take longer than it should; sleep, or lack thereof. When you’re sick, you need rest to recover and lots of it, and when you work 12 hour shifts you don’t get it. And it’s easy to see why.

It takes me 1.5 to get to work, 1 hour to get home. I give myself 2 hours to get ready and eat before work, right there only leaves me 7.5 hours. I have to come in from work, take off my makeup, actually fall asleep. Even if that only took an hour….and trust me, it’s always longer, that only leaves a possible 6.5 hours of sleep a night. And that’s banking on me getting out of work bang on 6am…. Which isn’t a thing that happens. So I’m lucky if I get 5 and half maybe 6 hours of sleep a night. Remembering 8 hours is what we’re meant to be aiming for. By the end of my working week I have a sleep debt of 8+ hours, or a full night’s sleep. Which is why like most 4 on, 4 off night shift workers I rarely see my first day off.

Like I said, math is against me, which is a shame, because it was always my favorite subject in school and now it’s trying to kill me. Anyways, I am going to go and sleep because…. Math. But before I do I have this question for you; what do you feel like is working against you? Let me know in the comment box below and as always stay and play safe.

Minor Fail

Just for the sake of honesty, which is kind of the name of the game here, I am backdating this post and my next one mainly for accountability. 1 post a week isn’t that much and the fact I failed to do that is ridiculous.

Yes, I have been sick, but that should only account for one week, the other was down to pure laziness, I knew what I had to do but for whatever reason, I just didn’t.  So now that I’m feeling…. Not a whole lot better I’m going try and sort this stuff out and refocus on what’s important.

2016 is meant to be the year of focusing on my career and it’s sad to think by March, I’m already struggling.

Anyways, I’m keeping this post nice a short, and just admitting I’m a failure, but it’s not about how many times you fail or fall behind schedule is it? It’s about how you pick yourself up and carry on… on so the overly positive people say…. I’m still working on the resolution too.

As always you lovely people, stay and play safe.
