Don’t Panic

in Three Things

But... 1. I can't read my free astrology chart After an amazing first-time session with a fab nutritionist recently I not only came away with some supplements knowledge (not a hard sell at all BTW!) I finally had some therapy. True, she didn't realise she was giving it to me but I was snuggled up… Read More

Dear Jane

in Dear Jane, Three Things

1. Dear Jane, How, as an eco-warrior, do I justify coveting a Karmann Ghia? Peace out, Plum Dear Plum (if that's your real name and I don't think it is), If you truly care about the environment you don't covet any kind of vehicle. You smugly ride a bike down the centre lane, probably with… Read More

1. That one email It's gone. Just now. Flying through the webisphere with sparkles falling from its wings. You know the one? That you have to properly think about, make a decision on, talk money and put yourself out there deleting those weak words that make it sound like you're asking rather than stating. That… Read More

Never Have I Ever

in Three Things

1. Eaten Kentucky Fried Chicken My sister thinks this a Big Deal and it's one of the first things she likes to tell people when introducing me. I don't know if they're as amazed as she thinks they should be but it's good to have something for the resume. I'm mostly vegan now but even… Read More

Attachment Issues

in Three Things

1. Sigh. Astrology on her upper arm That's my girl. She's always done things her way. We've been complimented on her growing up but actually it feels like we've had nothing to do with how she's turned out. We're just fortunate she's made good choices and not gone into the meth business. In which she'd… Read More

Dear Jane

1. Dear Jane, Is it acceptable to sniff during a yoga class? Best, Cyril Dear Cyril, It is NOT acceptable to sniff during class. If you feel you need to sniff, leave the studio immediately and do not even think about returning. In fact, it is not acceptable to sniff ever. It is a disgusting… Read More

1. Lunchtime and mock cream donuts When I was at college and Mum and I had had words in the morning I would come home at lunchtime and we'd make up. Yes, I was a ridiculous teenager. I was foul but couldn't bear my mother to be mad at me. If she was home she'd… Read More

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

in Three Things

1. Alternatively, worry about everything One of the drugs I'm taking along with my sleeping tablet is an anti-depressant that apparently works more at conquering the anxiety that naturally happens when you go to bed each night not expecting to sleep and getting a little het up over it. Because, sleep. Thing is, and I… Read More

Dear Jane

in Dear Jane, Three Things

1. I am wondering if you could help me be more ordered inside my draws? Any practical solutions would be greatly received. You see I love order on the outside, but when I open the cupboards and draws everything is just stuffed in (shocking, I know!). My socks keep going missing and then I go… Read More

1. Death cleaning I read about this Swedish initiative and having always been in awe of their maternity AND paternity leave, their schooling, their height and the not-so-secret crush I harboured on a certain Swedish musician many years ago I decided to take this on board as gospel. Or at the very least, a new… Read More
