The Friday Happy list – 5th May 2017

Ahoy! Tis Friday. For us nine to fivers, it’s time to really let loose, strike out and seize the means of production go on a jolly weekend bender. If you are anything like me, you have been getting through this working week with a heady mix of coffee, sugar and confused shouting. I’d like to… Continue reading The Friday Happy list – 5th May 2017

The Friday Happy List – 30th October 2015

Hallo! It is Halloween! If you are planning to dress up as a slutty pumpkin, then please leave. If you are carving your lantern from a turnip (aye) and making a den in your living-room, wearing odd socks, leggings and a sequin-festooned jumper, then I wrote this Friday Happy List for you. (Can I come… Continue reading The Friday Happy List – 30th October 2015

The Friday Happy List: 17th July 2015

Welcome! Because The World is Not All Terrible: Happy Friday Treat Yo Self For those who have not watched Parks and Recreation religiously (if not, what is the point of you?), this is what happens on 13th October every year, when the materialistic and magnificently shallow Donna and Tom just go all out shopping.

The Friday Happy List: 17th April 2015

Ok, let's do this. 1. This cat nurse. I do like a hug, as much as the next human. But you know those guys who overhug? The ones who hug you before you know their name? The ones who hug you when you've just said 'I feel really unwell', because you've eaten too much pie?… Continue reading The Friday Happy List: 17th April 2015

The Friday Happy List: 30th January 2015

If ever a Friday needed a Happy List, it's Friday the 30th of January. One day I plan to gather all my mutinous feelings about this time of the year (acht, cursed, wretched January) into the introduction to the astonishingly brilliant, grammatically experimental, culturally significant and ludicrously handsome book that I will write. This will not… Continue reading The Friday Happy List: 30th January 2015

The Friday Happy List – 22nd August 2014

Some weeks are amazing and when Friday rolls around, it’s just the icing on the bunny-shaped marshmallow cake. Anyone who’s had a week like that, I hate you. Give me your cake. I need it more than you do. Yes, I’m feeling poorly and so, I am in melodramatic-and-resentful mode. It’s been a week of… Continue reading The Friday Happy List – 22nd August 2014

The Friday Happy List – 5th May 2014

Sometimes a week is full of bad things. Lost bank cards, deleted emails, misunderstandings, sharp shocks and grey drifts of thoughts about the senselessness of it all. On a side note: there are no unicorns. They all died before you were born. At such times I like to retire to my treehouse to meditate on the good in life.… Continue reading The Friday Happy List – 5th May 2014

The Friday Happy List – 10th Oct 2013

Oh hey downpour. Hey October. Glasgow is slick with rain and stoic under siege. But there are reasons to be cheerful. It's Friday, which means for 9-5ers its time to let your hair down, get absolutely trashed and wake up on Sunday with only a few dim and alarming recollections. Don't worry, you're living life excellently! Here are some other happy… Continue reading The Friday Happy List – 10th Oct 2013
