Hip hip


26 arrived around this time last week and it would be an understatement to say I wasn’t ready. Quite literally. My body ached and my twin sister woke to find she couldn’t move her neck.

So this is post quarter-life, huh?

Things I have discovered approaching this great age: I can’t eat as much carefree, I can’t run full-stop and a minimum of eight hours of sleep each night is required to feel human.


Not like really worrying but in a sense that when I try to defy these age-related rules I am annoyed I can’t. My 16 year-old self definitely could of have.

You’ve changed. I’ve changed. (Okay this is getting confusing).

Still, I can’t let this birthday go without mentioning some of the rather amazing gifts given to me, even if it is a little unbecoming…

(cats and collars)

27 I’ll be ready.

    “.. could of”? Is this considered acceptable usage now? Don’t you have an English degree?

      might have somethinK to do with coming from London.

      Oh, and you ‘could of’ just emailed me.

      • anon says:

        I could indeed have. Taking it as an insult would be misguided, though. I like your blogs which means I do, therefore, expect nothing less than excellence from them. Coming from London is no excuse, either. I’m also from there and look how I turned out.

    Hah, well I actually do appreciate you pointing it out.

    How you turned out I can’t comment on, as who ‘anon’ is I can only guess.
