Why I'm Voting Labour

Why I’m Voting Labour & Why I Think You Should Too!

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, you’ll know by now that Theresa May has called a snap General Election to be held on June 8th. This post is why I’ll be voting Labour and why I think you should too. If we’re going to be honest, this a…




Womanby Street

Save Womanby Street

There’s sad news coming out of Cardiff. The Full Moon on Womanby Street has announced they’re closing due to lack of confidence from their creditors. This is the latest blow to hit Womanby Street following the closure of Dempseys and The Moon Club. Alongside this, there have been announcements of both a Wetherspoons hotel and a new residential…

2016: A Year in Review

Ah 2016, the coffee stain on the desk that is the 2010’s. It’s certainly been a bit of a weird year! Politics have turned down a road that no-one expected. Not even those leading the way saw this coming! On top of this, there are claims of the year being cursed thanks to a constant…

Being An Adult Is Mandatory. Growing Up Isn’t.

So it struck me the other day that even though I’m technically now an adult, I don’t feel like I’m growing up. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve grown up from my teenage years, but I still feel like I’m in my early 20’s even though I’m bordering 30. The Daily Post is Mind the Gap,…

An Open Letter To The Best Mum I Know…

This is an open letter to the best mum I know… My wife, the Mother of our 3 children. You are the glue to our family and I know that without you, we would have fallen apart a long time ago. You are constantly giving up for us and not in the bad way….




Keep Live Music, Alive

As you may or may not remember, I wrote a blog post some time back about small live music venues being under threat from closure. In this post, I urged everyone to sign a petition for Urgent Review of the Noise Abatement legislation. This petition is now closed and the Government has replied stating the…




Fractured skulls, miscarriages, stress and me.

Anyone that knows me personally will know that I am quite a laid back person and normally very chilled out. It takes a lot to rile me or stress me out, especially to get me to show that at the same time. I’m the sort of person that will normally pack away anything that’s bothering…




Wait, you have tattoos AND a job?!

I’ve been inspired to write this post off the back of a shocking anti-tattoos meme that I’ve seen being shared on Facebook recently. The above meme gives the impression that just because you have tattoos and piercings, that you won’t be able to get a job and you’ll blame it on everyone else. Now don’t…




Don’t like live music? Don’t move in!

Something has come to my attention recently, and it’s something that is starting to get on my nerves…The closure of small licensed live music venues. I’m not talking about closures that have happened due to financial issues and the like (as sad as these are), I’m talking about closures made due to noise complaints. Noise…
