Why a woman should never propose.

A woman should never propose marriage to her man.
I mean, I did a bit of research around the web and it’s obvious as to why, but I’ll spell it out anyway:

Because unless he takes the initiative how else is she supposed to know if he’s really committed to her?

Because it’s emasculating.
There’s nothing worse than having a woman tell him she thinks he’s amazing and the pick of the bunch. Can you imagine how much that would ruin his self-esteem?

Top 10 tips for surviving Christmas after Divorce.

Christmas, like any momentous event, can be hard after a breakup. Especially if that relationship had traditions or particular ways of celebrating that you just can’t do anymore.

Anyone who’s moved out of home, moved across town, moved back in with their parents. Anyone who’s found themselves in a situation where they have to do something different to celebrate the holiday season than they have in the past.

Adult Goth: The Parcel In the Post. AKA talking about it like adults, instead of avoiding it like a child.

The other day I recieved a parcel in the post.
(Cue Peter Combe song. Don’t know who Peter Combe is? You probably weren’t a child in Australia in the 90s. If you were, then you’re welcome: enjoy the earworm.)

Peter Combe, children's song singer. He's got nothing to do with this post, but if you're an Aussie kid like me, his over 18 gigs are now the stuff of legends.

It was one of those incredibly delicious days where lying-in was bliss and I had decided to completely take the morning off from everything and just relax with my love. Sun streaming though my windows and a book waiting for me on my bedside table. You get the picture?

So when the knock came, I stayed in bed whilst my Gentleman answered the door and signed for the parcel. He then brought it in to me with much teasing and “What is it? What have you bought this time?”
