Fact Friday – Erasers

Fact Friday – Erasers

I go through erasers like you won’t believe it, not necessarily because I finish them but mainly cause I keep misplacing them. Also I love them. I have ones like little rubber ducks, I have chocolate scented ones and cupcake ones. Erasers are just awesome. […]

4 years using the NHS – what I’ve learnt

Facebook reminded me that yesterday marks 4 years of being back on my meds full time. This also means that it’s been 4 years of government clinic hours, figuring things out and navigating my way through the system. There are a lot of nay-sayers and […]

Mythos – Stephen Fry

Mythos – Stephen Fry

Stephen Fry. A lot can be said from this man who challenges the church, stalks through jungles trying to find endangered species and openly speaks about mental disorder. And he narrates all 7 Harry Potter books… And so, naturally, when his new book Mythos came […]

[WIN – CLOSED] Nerf Blaster Flaconfire

Last week Hasbro sent us the Nerf Blaster Falconfire from the Nerf N-Strike Elite Accustrike Series. It’s actually pretty cool compared to the others (well compared to our other one) as the new range has redesigned bullets that make them shoot further and more accurately […]
