'The Zoo Story' at Moor Deli

'The Zoo Story' is a one act-play and the first piece of work by American playwright Edward Albee - who brought us 'Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?'. I've seen the film version starring Elizabeth Taylor and absolutely loved it. The story gradually becomes more intense and more sinister, you suspect it could get worse but don't expect it to - and then it does.

'The Zoo Story' has a similar vein of intensity running through it.

Heather Morgan invited me to see her production of 'The Zoo Story' at Moor Deli, which is in collaboration with the brilliant Without Walls Theatre Company.

Meeting Heroes :: Interviewing Laura Bates

A few months back, I attended a talk in Sheffield called Celebrating Modern Feminism. It was certainly an experience I will never forget, because I ended up interviewing Laura Bates.

I bought Laura's book, Everyday Sexism, a year ago and she's been a firm hero of mine ever since.

The speakers included Laura and Lucy Anne Holmes of No More Page 3

Stationery Love

Today I'm going to show you some of my stationery. A 'what's in my make up bag' post wouldn't be great on this blog as I have very little interest in stuff like that - I am actually thinking of doing one as a joke!

Stationery is a different story. I'm somewhat obsessed to be honest. Sheffield recently opened a Paperchase store in the city centre and suffice to say it's changed my life here.

In light of all the stuff that's happening recently and currently (Paris shootings, Ched Evans etc), I want to talk about ways we can tackle some of the total crap the world throws at us.

In the words of Anais Nin, 'You cannot save people. You can only love them.'

I've had a simple but lovely Christmas this year. Lots of food, walks and shifts in a bar for extra cash.

My Goals For 2015

I'm setting a number of goals again, but this time they're designed to help me take better care of myself and to put more energy and focus on to less pursuits.

Last year was very speculative and very varied, which is very good! But now that I have a better idea of what I like and don't like, and more importantly what I'm good at and not good at, it's time to really use my time in 2015 effectively.

I want to be healthy and productive this year. I also want a quieter year! Here's how I hope to achieve that:
