So we recently bought a new TV. I won’t bore you with all the details, but I will say one thing. It was big enough to require a new stand. Our old TV was broken, old and small. This new TV is shiny, curved and...

The Final Year

Sep 15, 2016


There’s an ugly page my university runs that I’ve joined recently. It’s basically where students go to hash out their frustration at not being able to find accommodation before the new term starts (in just over two weeks), and barely anything gets done to resolve...

Fifty Shades of Biscuit

Oct 2, 2015

It’s been about a year since I left them. As I think back on those wild, crazy evenings turned into mornings with my packets of McVitie’s milk & dark chocolate digestive biscuits – even if I didn’t want to – I see it was the...
