Loneliness: Why as adults do we never admit when we’re lonely?

Loneliness: Why as adults do we never admit when we’re lonely?

Me

When was the last time you heard someone say ‘I’m lonely’? You just don’t hear it do you, but from various conversations I’ve had about this over the last few years, everyone gets lonely. Humans as a species are made to live in groups, we’re not solitary creatures and it goes against our nature to live in such a manner. As with everything there’s an exception to every rule and there are some people who live completely solitary lifestyles and if that suits them, that’s fine by me. I’m not here to say they shouldn’t live like that at all, but it doesn’t mean that everyone else enjoys being alone.

The Underground Overground – My Husband’s Tube Challenge.

The Underground Overground – My Husband’s Tube Challenge.

Banner, with tagline

A bit of a different post type this time. I want to talk about the amazing challenge my Husband is undertaking to raise money for charity this year. Yes, I am biased but I also think it’s a pretty epic challenge and deserves for me to shout from rooftops about it because I’m really damn proud of him.

So what’s the challenge? Over the course of this year Aidan will be walking all 11 lines of the Underground in London, Overground. It’s approximately 343 miles and he’s aiming to do it within 1 year. You can see all the caveats, rules etc in the first post we put on the website we’ve put together for the challenge here.

Me and my Hufflepuff friends!

I know I know, this post is massively behind the times because this event happened in January. In our fast paced world of sharing via the internets that was aeons ago but I still wanted to talk about it because it was SO fun and I mainly wanted to share images from it. I actually took my proper camera out instead of just using my phone which was wonderful!

For those that haven’t a clue what I’m on about, Lumiere London is an art installation that takes over the centre of London for one weekend each year and its focus is light. And it’s beautiful! I didn’t manage to go last year but this year I was determined to make it and my Husband and I managed to go to different bits of it across two nights.
