Not certain if y’all know this yet (can an Irish girl who lives in Tipp even get away with saying y’all? – fuck it, I like it!)   Y’AAAALLLLLLLLL   Getting back in track…   I am not certain how common knowledge it is in this big ol’ world of ours but I am pregnant. Yes, the husband a...

Andree Walkin – Transvulcania 2018 Half Marathon Race Report I’m sure we all have a friend or friends who rope you into interesting things at particularly vulnerable moments in your life right? Well, I’m glad to say I’ve got a few of these types of friends.  On a car journey following an epic Art O’ Neill 2018 event m...

Fit for FORTY.

Category : FITNESS, LIFE

A rambling post about a half marathon, back injuries and turning 40.   OK, so long story short. I haven’t posted on BitchMittens for a REALLY long time.   Partly it was because I hurt my back while weightlifting, and after that, I was so whacked out on nerve blockers and lurching from one cortisone injection to anot...

Drifting – Fast Cars, burning rubber, fur coat, helmet and trainers.

Category : Entertainment

I have always loved the 2 Fast 2 Furious franchise.  2 Fast 2 Furious Number 2 TokyoDrift is my total favourite.  It is about drifting. The best explanation for Drifting is from Urban Dictionary:  “How to aim one’s car at a wall and miss it completely; drifting is the opposite of grip-driving, which involves ...

Plenty of Fish in the Lake (POFL) VS Plenty of Fish (POF)

Category : LIFE

(Where the intrepid Ellen goes lake-fishing and compares it to the trials and tribulations of the online dating site, Plenty of Fish)   Every good story starts with an outfit.  Starting from top to fishtail.  For POFL you’ll need a warm hat, long hair down and ideally facial hair required for maximum heat benefits (plea...

Consider walking…

Category : FITNESS

To many avid fitness enthusiasts (myself included) walking just seems like a non-thing. It’s not exercise, it’s a mode of transport. A way to get from A to B. How could you possibly work up a sweat from that?!   Well, what if I told you that it’s not all about sweating it out.     I honestly used to t...

Surf holiday 2018 Part Deux

Category : RANT, Sea, SPORT, Travel

When does a holiday become not-a-holiday?   I have been receiving messages from my fans about maybe writing part two of my Surf Holiday blog 2018 and have been inundated with PMs asking me what happened to puppy Linda… So here it is!  Part Deux. I would just like to say one thing about the flight on Arabica Air.  You st...

Surf holiday 2018 Day Fecking One

Category : Beach, RANT, Surf, Travel

Or… How important is it to have a towel/correct towel on holidays/in life. Packing is a good way to start any holiday!  Automatically assuming that there would be a towel/serval towels at surf holiday accommodation.  I always travel light with as much inappropriate, non-practical clothing as I can fit into my hand (job) lugg...

Get the F*#K up!

Category : LIFE, RANT

I am bad at getting out of bed.   It’s not that I am not a morning person (my husband is not a morning person, his whole family are not morning people. Makes me fell like I am super duper good at getting up!) Sorry, where was I? Oh yeah, it’s not that I am not a morning person, it’s just so hard. Hard to move ...

A different approach to those new year resolutions

Category : LIFE

I was thinking about resolutions and how the end of the old year always brings about doubts and thoughts about the new year. I read this post recently and it got me thinking and reflecting on past years, and past resolutions.   1) Why limit it to January to become a better person? And what does ‘better’ mean? Why sho...
