Arriving today by 8PM

Uncategorized

The anticipation of waiting for an Amazon parcel has stepped up a notch since lockdown begun. Before, if I ended up being out somewhere or at work when a parcel was due, it was no biggie. The contents of that package was not the be all and end all. It was not the highlight of […]

A day in the life of furlough

Uncategorized, Unkategorised

06:45: Just ignore your alarm. You set that before you spent two hours and twenty-seven minutes chastising yourself for retiring from cart-wheeling and bending your body into a ‘crab’ every day back when you were nine. Had you continued your infant gymnastics, you wouldn’t have pulled the whole of your lower body while practicing the […]

Shall we order a takeaway?

Uncategorized, Unkategorised

“Shall we order a takeaway?” Aaron asks me, about six hours before we would actually consider picking up the phone to place an order. Our eyes duet, moving in unison before they fall upon my most recent regrettable purchase. The bathroom scales. The scales that betrayed I Literally Cannot Put on Weight Even if I […]

The furloughs & the fur-highs #1


Unkategorised

As I am writing this it is 21:49; I have a beer ninety degrees to my left and I am just about to put some water on to boil, to create a very high-brow one-woman banquet of pesto pasta. If it was 2017 and I could see myself now, I’d recoil, fearing I hadn’t outgrown […]

A May Book Club


Kath's Bookshelf

What better time to host a May book club than a few days before July? Oops. No surprises here but I’m still behind schedule; a good few chapters behind where I should be. But everyone loves an underKat so I’m going to keep going. Against all odds. So here’s a little round up of everything […]

An April Book Club


Kath's Bookshelf

Although a few days late… Better late than never?! I thought it was about time to fess up to a month of very little reading. I have an excuse at the ready though. April started off with an absolutely brilliant read. (More on that in a paragraph’s time.) After just a few days into April, […]

A March Book Club


Kath's Bookshelf

If I thought the first two months of 2019 were good reading months, then March was pretty fab. So I am still blabbing on about reading 52 books this year and while, shock, I’m still behind, I’m feeling okay about it. Especially since I’ve been reading books I’ve adored. So if you want to check […]

Dear Dublin | Day Two


Kathventures

Dear Dublin, After a glorious day one that not only lived up to my expectations, but dare I say it, exceeded them, we woke up ready to see a whole new side of Dublin. After our first trip to Dublin, I realised our favourite city had even more to offer than we already had the […]

Dear Dublin | Day One


Kathventures

Dear Dublin, Although nearly a month since we visited, I am still missing my favourite place in the entire world. Dublin. The city that if you even dare ask Aaron and I about, you will regret it. It’s like an ex-boyfriend you just can’t move on from. It’s a love affair I’ll be revisiting for […]

A February Book Club


Kath's Bookshelf

This year is the year I’m going to complete my challenge to read 52 books… Maybe. I can’t even publish the round up blog post in the correct month and I’m at least two books behind schedule but, HEY, I’m trying. In January I read 3 books, as did I in February. At the very […]
