Hello and welcome to A Penny For Them!
I’m Penny, I’m 31 years old and I live with my boyfriend (Ben) and our pack of furballs (two cats and a dog) in our cosy (read: small) little house in Essex.
By day I work as an Office Manager in London, and my evening and weekends are dedicated to fun, frolics and generally enjoying myself!
I’ve been blogging for a few years now, originally starting to document my journey through the minefield that is dating (Buzzfeed featured me on their list of “22 Horrendous Break-Up Stories“ – claim to fame right there!) but with the changing transitions of my life, this blog has shifted focus too and now it’s definitely bedded down into the ‘lifestyle’ category as I share my everyday happenings, milestones and events.
Although I do get to do some exciting things because of this blog, first and foremost A Penny For Them is somewhere for me to store my memories so that when I’m old and grey I can look back on our memories and relive moments that might otherwise have been lost to time. I also think it’s pretty awesome that our grandchildren, or our grandchildren’s grandchildren, will be able to visit here one day and get to know us in my own words and pictures, rather than from stories passed down to them.
One thing I can always promise you, without exception, is openness and honesty on this blog. Whether I’m reviewing a product or sharing my thoughts, I will never sugar-coat anything. I want to document my life and to paint it as perfect would be unfair – whose life is perfect after all?
So take a look around, make yourself at home and feel free to drop me a line – I love a good chat!
