Living with lactose intolerance

I had no allergies as a kid. Really, not a single one. I had friends carrying epi pens to school, but I could roll in the grass and eat peanuts by the handful, and I'd be fine. I thought I would be like that forever. After all, why would I suddenly develop an allergy as… Continue reading Living with lactose intolerance

Things to do in London: Sky Garden

You might or might not remember that one of the goals I set myself back in September was to learn to love London. I have to admit, I've been slacking a bit on this one, mostly because Mr Arguably Honest and I are massive lazy bums, and can't be bothered to do much on Sundays… Continue reading Things to do in London: Sky Garden

Why the La La Land didn’t make me go all la la

14 Oscar nomination. 144 other awards, and 200 nominations. A Metascore of 93 (!) on IMDb. Piles upon piles upon piles of enthusiastic critic reviews. And yet I left the cinema disappointed. All throughout this movie, I was sitting there, in my surprisingly comfy seat in Stratford's Picturehouse, wondering what the hell went wrong with this… Continue reading Why the La La Land didn’t make me go all la la

What’s on my phone – apps that make life easier, happier or better

My initial idea for this blog post was to make it about apps I can't live without. But I abandoned it as quickly as I came up with it, as I realised that writing about my great love for Google Maps would bore me to death, as well as put you to sleep halfway through the… Continue reading What’s on my phone – apps that make life easier, happier or better

New Year, Old Me.

The 2016 summaries have been popping up on various blogs over the past fortnight or so, but I didn't want to sum up the year before it actually finished. As Polish people say, Don't praise the day before sunset. This means I'm a bit late to the New Year party. Who cares. 2016 was a truly crappy… Continue reading New Year, Old Me.
