Well, almost. Few more weeks to go…

And I’m having my 40th birthday party the day after my birthday, as that’ll be a Saturday. But that’s not really the point of this post.

I want to think about why – or why not – and how, we celebrate 40.

I haven’t had a strong run of bi...

I am not sure how this has happened. But I am about to turn 40 and I have never watched a full episode of The Great British Bake Off.

As the new series airs this evening, I’ll be losing my GBBO virginity.

First of all I have to say this isn’t out of any dislike of the id...

First things first. If I knew the name of the hairdresser who PERMED my already HALF BLEACHED hair, I would sue.

But these things happened a long time ago. 20 years ago, in fact (hope I’ve got my maths right this time!)

This week I went to Lyon in France, for the first t...

Today is A-levels results day. I'm sure it's bringing back memories for so many people, and yep, that's me included.

Back in 1994, my fate was upon me. Time for the grades that would see if I could go to Leeds University. I was sooo keen on going to Leeds. That was wher...

What's your drinking like now you're nearly 40 or turned 40?

I have realised over the past few months that personally, I am quite the boozer. A scroll through my Instagram and it didn't take long to make up the picture!

I love a drink, I love the social aspect, the feeli...

I woke up this morning and realised that it’s exactly two months until my 40th birthday.

As I mentioned last week I’m not a fan of ‘before 40’ lists BUT I am now aware of the clock ticking on my 30s and it feels important. Important to do things so I feel brilliant at 4...

A shorter musing this week after the rambles about dad rock.

I am thinking of getting a tattoo when I turn 40. Now I am not ‘pro’ 40th bucket lists. I find them a little bit cheesy. No judgement on those who do them, but personally I don’t like to see 40 as an age to ti...

I’ve been thinking about writing about my musical taste since I was in New Zealand.

Now after two weekends of brilliant gigs (Green Day, Elbow and Killers – oh, and Tears for Fears!) in Hyde Park, plus getting over GlastoFOMO, I think 'tis time to talk about my embarras...

Oh Lord, I thought I’d cope. But no. With every Instagram shot, every Facebook update…


And for the first time in years I’m not there. Cue extreme GLASTOFOMO.

I first went to Worthy Farm ten years ago (pic on the left), and that's when I fell for Glasto. Mud a...

Anyone who knows me, and indeed who doesn't, is probably familiar with the fact that I like writing about myself.

Sometimes it works out well, and others it can be a bit odd. Like when trolls write the word TART under an article about giving up dating for lent.

But ther...
