Woody’s Maiden Voyage.

At the start of July I bought myself a new bike, rather than try and salvage an old one. Luckily, I still had all the extra bits like a waterproof jacket, helmet and lock so I was pretty set, but after building my new bike, it sat in the downstairs bathroom. Being one who wants…

Cleanse.

Sometimes, I aim to avoid talking about certain areas of my life, because they can be easily misconstrued and be used against me in a negative way. However, in the pursuit of truly reaching out to men like me, I have to sometimes write these things down. Now, I was never brought up in a…

Yoga Bomb.

There was a particularly stressful Saturday shift not so long ago, where I tuned out of work from about midday and stayed that way until it was time to go home. Sometimes, it’s just what happens when you’re dealing with people in close quarters a lot of the time. That is not to say that…

Be A Tourist.

On the odd occasion that someone I know asks for suggestions for what to do with their weekend, I’ll go to my trusted response: be a tourist. I live in Hull, which is due to become the City of Culture next year (2017), and it’s currently a building site. And that is not an understatement,…

Big Boys Don’t Cry.

[This is a sequel post to ‘Coping With Body Image’] Following my previous post on body image, I got a fair bit of love, and not so much negativity, and the one public comment on negativity I got, other’s were more outraged over what was said than I was. The fact of the matter is,…

Beautiful.

When it comes to Lush products, I tend to now keep quiet about which ones I love because ultimately, when I profess to loving them, they’re discontinued and I’m left wanting more. This has happened with Grass shower gel and the full emotibomb collection. It’s also happened with a number of bath bombs in the…

Lentil Chilli!

With being newly vegetarian, although it’s been 4 months now, it is sometimes easy to get stuck in a rut with what to make. Forbidden Rice Whole Bowls are a bit much sometimes on repeat, and Yellow Belly Curry is great and everything, but it’s just much of the same thing. Using Quorn gets boring…

Falling Apart.

What a world we’re living in right now. My blindness to what has been going on is partly due to my forced optimism to offset any potential ill feelings I may encounter, but since the end of June, my eyes have been open, and what is being seen is a dangerous new world. Firstly, there…

Instant Avoidance.

I work pretty long hours, from 6am to 6pm or, 6pm to 6am. Twelve hour shifts have been the norm since I started working after University, and I have to say, I’m used to it by now. What I am also used to, is that fact that, waking up early, never really agrees with me,…
