Not Today Sadness: The Ultimate Happy Playlist

Hello, you! It’s been a while… You should know that right now in my head after typing that, all I can think of is the opening of Britney’s big comeback song ‘Break the Ice’ where she says ‘it’s been a while… I know I shouldn’t have kept you waiting… But I’m here now’ because clearly, you’ve been waiting with baited breath for my monumental return like we all did for Britney’s post 2007 resurgence.  Anyway, it’s been a bloody rough month. In my last post I spoke about how I was bored of recovering a month after my surgery, HAHA – two months on… I’m still recovering. I don’t know why I thought a ‘three month recovery’ would mean a couple of weeks to actually recover from the surgical pain and then another few weeks of feeling tired, GOOD LORD, I was wrong. It’s two months on now and I’m just bloody knackered. I’ve genuinely had some of the worst days of my life since my last blog post, I’ve felt incredibly lost and I’ve really struggled – in a way I never really have before. My second surgery absolutely obliterated me, I have genuinely felt dead… Like the only thing living about… View Post

Mondays are for Celebrating

Hello, you!   Today I was reunited with my best friend Leila – one of the most positive and sunny natured people I know. We were both super excited see each other after a fair while apart so we decided to continue our long standing tradition of eating a double cheeseburger and playing absolute TUNES… Us singing together in the car rapidly escalated to us blasting out the songs and singing to strangers passing by, lucky them! We had SO much fun, call us sad if you wish but you can get a lot of happiness from driving round with happy songs playing at full volume, singing at the top of your voice – especially when the sun is shining. It was so entertaining that we ended up doing it for around THREE hours, driving allllll over the city and into different car parks. By the end of it, we had experienced a full range of reactions… The most common reaction we had was people smiling or laughing at us, we massively enjoyed this, it’s nice to think you’ve made someone smile even a little bit, isn’t it? As for the laughing, we will gladly be the laughing stock so… View Post

Triumph Over Heartbreak – Alice

Hello, you!   We need to talk about the pure sass master and conqueror of heartbreak, my best friend – Alice.     Last year, Alice was with a guy who we’ll call Tom (to save him the shame). Tom told Alice he loved her and broke up with her two weeks later… Over the phone. WHAT A CHAP! Alice called me in hysterics, when I answered the phone the first thing I heard was her sobbing ‘Sophie, Tom’s just broken up with me’. She drove straight over there to talk to him, and when I asked her about this recently she said ‘I went to his with my eyebrows half drawn on’ – anyone who knows Alice will agree, that’s how you know shit just got real. For the next God knows how long, Alice was a shell of the person she is. In my GRAND 20 years of life (we’re still toddlers in terms of life experience, let’s be real) I’ve never seen anyone more heartbroken, and though I know it’s unlikely, I hope I never do again. Alice ended up being super low and sometimes stayed in bed all day, I had to tempt her out of the house… View Post
