The alternative title of this blog post is “my mother always said if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all” but apparently that’s too long and ruins the SEO or something… Social media is a funny place. It’s a community, a space where we can share our feelings, our thoughts, our opinions, […]READ MORE

A rant about dressing up days at school…!
This is my face. Ok, it’s not my face, but it’s the look that was on my face this morning, when my children informed me of YET ANOTHER dressing up day at school. I am an ogre (except I hate dressing up, so I stomp about angrily like an ogre, I just don’t dress like […]READ MORE
Driving whilst on live social media needs to stop
I am a HUGE fan of social media, and I follow a lot of people on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook (I tried Snapchat for about ten minutes and got bored, it seems a bit silly and I am probably way too old for it) and I love my little corner of the world on social […]READ MORE
Just because they work in a coffee shop doesn’t mean you can be rude to them…
I hate rudeness. It annoys me. I get that sometimes we have bad moments, and we can be unintetnionally rude to people, or we don’t even realise we are being rude. But nothing annoys me more than deliberate rudeness and when someone treats someone rudely, and speaks to them as if they are below them, […]READ MORE
People who think they are special and can break rules, annoy me…
Rules, they are part of life. Some of them are inane, and seem ridiculously bureaucratic , some of them are put in place for our own safety, or to keep the majority of people happy and safe. Rules can be annoying and we as humans often don’t like being told what to do. I get frustrated […]READ MORE
Jaded with Instagram…
Yup, it’s another person moaning about Instagram. Because we need one more voice having a whine. But it’s Friday and I haven’t done a Friday Rant for a while, so I am letting loose. We all know by now (and if you don’t you clearly live under a social media free rock, somewhere, which is […]READ MORE
Say what now? I am not sharing my wifi…
Welcome to my weekly rant. Friday is rant from the soapbox day. It’s therapeutic getting things of my chest, and it’s my blog so I will rant if I want to…? This week’s rant? We recently recieved a letter from our internet and phone provider. They have come up with a super, fabulous idea that […]READ MORE
What no wellies…?
I haven’t done a Friday Rant from the Soap Box in MY own living room for ages, but I have brought it back, because sometimes it’s good to get things off my chest, and it’s cleansing and therapeutic. It makes me feel better, and it’s Friday, it’s my blog, and I will rant if I […]READ MORE
I don’t want or need to dress to impress
A while ago I had a disagreement with someone about needing a dress to impress. She told me that I must not like myself because I don’t like dressing up or wearing anything other than what I call my personal “uniform”. Apparently, because I don’t like to regularly wear pretty dresses or “feminine” clothes there […]READ MORE
Lack of internet and lies. Virgin Media Broke our internet.
That time that Virgin Media broke our internet then lied about why, how and when it would be fixed… On Tuesday morning this week, our internet service went down. In reality it wasn’t the end of the world. Inconvenient, yes, for many reasons, though. My fury, however, is centred on the fact that our internet […]READ MORE
