    June Favourites

    Groundhog day has officially settled in. I don’t remember what the day it is. Lock down rules are easing, but there’s still not an awful lot to do apart from watch TV and films, and play games. I could clean, but no one wants to clean in a pandemic! These are some things I’ve dedicated time to in June, that isn’t cleaning. Schitt’s Creek Early on in the month I finally finished watching the incredible Schitt’s Creek (on Netflix in the U.K.).

Endless hours of fun. I’ve…

Staying in is the best thing we can do at the moment. If I have to find books, games, film, tv, music and more to do instead, then I guess I won’t run out of content for my monthly favourites!

    1 year off the pill

    A year ago I decided I would come off the pill. I started using it age 16 to regulate my period in hope that the period cramps would ease and the spots on my back would disappear. 8 years later, after researching eco-friendly ways to manage my period and finding linked articles about the contraceptive pill, I started to question why I was really on it. Initially I didn’t start taking the pill as a method of contraception. Like most teenagers, I went on it to manage my period. I knew a lot of people at that age who were also on the pill for similar reasons. Whether it was…
