Banking is one of those things that we have to deal with every day. We have bills to pay, wages to get, and the banks are slap bang in the middle of it all. But like everything else in this world, banking has a history, and I have five facts about the history of banking that you can lodge in your brain bank of intelligence.
There would be nothing better than waking up in the morning, and realising that your bank account is full of money that you can actually spend. It’s something a lot of us might dream of happening, but in reality, we wake up to a bank account that’s close to being empty.
We all know how busy life can get. When you’re enjoying the year, you’re often going at a million miles a minute and nothing can slow you down. But sometimes, when you’re taking on too much, you’ll find that it’s your body that slows you down in the end. Because burnout is real. And if you don’t want to be one of the many that suffer from it, you may find that focus on finding a balance.
Everyone likes to complain that dating these days is hard. Swipe right, swipe left, wax on, wax off. But is it really as bad as you think? Especially compared to how people used to date? I’ve five facts about dating in the Middle Ages that might make you think differently about today’s dating scene.
The first foreign holiday I ever went on was a holiday to the Algarve when I was 14 years old. Yes, that was a while ago before the place became cool. But when I was there, there were some amazing sights to see. In the last few years, the Algarve has seen a spike in interest as people seek out underrated and underappreciated parts of the globe.
A few months ago, I was in London for a visit. I’m not sure if you had heard about me doing the Virgin London Marathon? Oh, you didn’t? Well, now you know and you can still sponsor me for completing it (the money goes to Enham Trust who are amazing). But here is some stuff that I wish I had known about food before I had gone.
Can you believe that we’re halfway through the year already? Who knew that summer would finally hit and we’d all be having a ball! No matter how great the weather is and how much we’re all enjoying ourselves, you’re going to want to stop in your tracks and look back on the year so far.
You may or may not know this about me, but I can speak French. I’m not the greatest at it but if I was to get stuck in a room with some French people who talked very slowly and used a lot of hand gestures, I’d probably manage rightly. Admittedly, I could be better, and I used to be practically fluent but over 10 years of neglecting my second language has left me a bit rusty.
Who thought that Britain could have such a good start to the summer? The sun is shining, there is a hose pipe ban where I am, and everyone is outside getting a lovely shade of “burnt”. But not me and you, no we live on the internet. Do you know who else lives on the internet? Bloggers.

At this moment in time, we are in the middle of a heat wave. I have just recovered from three days of heat stroke but I am barely holding on to my sanity during all of this. Last night, I walked through my house in a t-shirt and knickers, something which isn’t a big deal in itself but it is to me. I don’t do things like that because I have a mom bod. It’s like a dad bod but the extra cushion is from having children, not extra portions and beer.
