5 Things I lied about in 2016

It occurred to me the other day whilst I gave a little white lie to someone about how I was, that the human race, even though we will deny it, lies a whooooole bunch. Maybe not big lies. Y’no the “I once went on a date with Tom Hardy” kinda lies, but the little ones that we don’t even really consciously think of as lies. This got me thinking, and I thought it would be funny to admit 5 “little white lies” that I told last year. Here goes

1. “I am so sorry, I already have plans with my other half” 

Birthday Cake Amynoos

To someone I do not know very well upon being invited to her birthday drinks

2. “Oh thank you so much, it looks wonderful, how lovely, how kind, thank you”.

To a student offering me a “treat” they had bought from their native land. It did not look wonderful. It went in the bin when they left the room.

3. “Oh this t-shirt, yes I have had it a while.”

If by a while you mean since yesterday? Yes.

4. “I was really good, I just had soup for my lunch.”

And a bread roll the size of my head. And a bag of crisps.

5. “Oh only about £20”

When asked about how much I had just spent in Lush.

£45. I had spent £45. On bath products.

Have you told any good little white lies? Please share them below in the comments!

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017 Amynoos

Where the bloody hell have I been? I am not sure to be honest. Where HAVE I been? At home, trying to think of clever and witty things to write and then I see something shiny/fluffy and I am off…… attention span of a small child!

Anyhoo…

Here we are,  I am here,  Here we go, another year.

2016 was a year wasn’t it. I think it’s going to go down in infamy like the heatwave of 1976, but different because it was an entire year, and it was shit.

It wasn’t all shit.

Quite a lot of shit.

The global shit I will not go into because this is the internet and I think that has probably been covered.

Personally for me it was a bit of a mixed bag. There were some super shit things that happened, but also a lot of good. I also seemed to have a bit of an epiphany last year, maybe epiphany isn’t the right word, realisation….I am still figuring out that stuff so more on that in a later post.

Anyway, it’s done. We are no longer there. We pick ourselves up and we move on. We came out unscathed. Well…. kinda…. #brexit #potus

2017 is exciting. Change is afoot.

Jezz and I are getting married. (HOLY CRAP BAGS) It’s going to be a busy year.

As always, I go into this new year with a renewed hope that I will blog more…. but if my post history is anything to go by…*cough* 😉

For sticking with me this far here is a little video treat of my Christmas. I am hoping to do a few more videos this year so please do keep an eye over on the Tubes of You for my little face popping up.

Here is to a better year.
