It seems apt that in my first week as a freelancer I should share with you guys the journey of how I got my first clients and how that has ultimately led me to the point where I could quit my job and become my own boss (which totally, totally still feels surreal). A few people asked on Twitter how I got to this point too, so hopefully I can shed some light on it – obviously with the caveat that there is no “right”  or guaranteed way of getting clients as a freelancer that works for everyone, this is just… View Post

HI GANG! Sorry for shouting but as I type this it’s a Tuesday night and it’s all I can do keep myself *awake*. The days are starting to get that little bit darker and I’m ngl, the change in daylight has a pretty instant effect on me. So I’ve been blogging here on more about cat since 2013 and for better or worse, I have made a lot of decisions to attempt to steer this little slice of internet in the “right” direction. Not all of those decisions turned out to be good ones. So for a little bit of fun,… View Post

THIS IS MY LAST WEEK AS A FULL TIME EMPLOYEE, YOU GUYS. Quitting your job and saying to yourself “hey, I’m going to go it alone and see if I can be a successful freelancer” is bloody terrifying, tbh.

Welcome back to WIBW where I write mini spoiler-free reviews of the movies I’ve seen recently! Patti Cake$ Our most recent Unlimited screening was Patti Cake$, a film I’d been pretty interested in seeing as it looked like it was going to be the female version of 8 Mile which is actually a pretty accurate assessment of it! The music is really good, the performances are great (especially from the woman who plays the titular character) and my only criticism would be that some of the plot lines didn’t get quite as much coverage as others but I still definitely… View Post

Seeing as I had my very first breakdown when driving Nelson the little red Mini recently, I thought I’d share the story of when he first came into my life. Y’know, to celebrate the momentous occasion of driving along the A286 and suddenly hearing the exhaust scraping along the road underneath the car… I’ll be honest, I’ve never been that in to cars but when it came to getting my first car, I knew for some time that I wanted a Mini. Why? Well, being under 5ft meant to me that a car any bigger just wouldn’t suit me or feel as… View Post
