3 Reasons Why I’m Terrified To Leave Home

I can’t remember when I first mentioned it, but at the beginning of this year, my boyfriend and I made the decision to move out of our family homes and rent a place together. Well, lo and beyond the plan has actually worked. Against all odds (well, not all odds) we found a…

A Note on Burning Bridges

Before I crack on with today’s update on Becky’s-crazy-life, I’d like to say that if anyone out there is wondering if they’re the only one’s social media stalking people from 2011 and from that summer where you went on loads of dates… you’re not. (If no-one is doing this and…
