Phone phobia

I hate phones . . . . well I hate phone calls. I panic when the phone rings and when I have to make a call. I will run into the bedroom to get away from the phone ringing in the front room!! who does that!? If I have to make a phone call I will probably (although calls to certain people or calls on certain subjects in certain circumstances are bearable) I will probably break down many times pick up the phone psych myself up, start typing in the number then won’t be able to press call, because they’ll be able to hear that I’ve been crying, or I might be disturbing them, or they may ask me something I can’t answer to straight away etc.  which then makes me feel silly, daft and angry at myself for not being able to do it, which in turn just makes me more upset. So when I say please text me back or email me, please do :)

Symptoms of Phone Phobia

If you answer “yes” to any of these, your phone fear may indeed be a phobia,

Before and after calls do you…

  • feel extremely anxious when making or receiving calls?
  • delay making phone calls due to anxiety?
  • worry about bothering the other person?
  • worry about what you will say?
  • worry about embarrassing yourself?
  • avoid making calls or have others call for you?
  • obsess what was said after calls?

I answer yes to 6/7 of these

I do try and understand why it makes me feel that way. We never had a home phone or mobiles in our house till I was about 14/15 ish when my brother got a mobile, then I do remember being with my dad in the front room and my dad picked up the mobile and walked to window and was looking out (as you got better reception there) and the phone call was that my grandad had suddenly passed away in his sleep. There also many occasions like job interview type phone calls, sat waiting for the phone to ring feels like waiting for a bomb to explode the sound of the phone breaking the silence is creeping me out now just thinking about it, it makes me jump into panic mood.

Keep calm and doodle

A bit of fun to keep up with doodling/ drawing and generally being creative :)

Would definitely recommend giving it a go

PS. I have now noticed I have spelt ‘doodle’ wrong opps :D


Bargain badges


Recently went to the annual Stubbington Donkey Derby and fayre and was hoping I may found some badges to go on my camp blanket but found none, but after the very wet search around the fayre went waterproof coat shopping today with my big bro in Pompey and picked up these badges in the Salvation Army charity shop for 25p each . . . . . now to get sewing :D

PS. will try and upload a picture of my camp blanket once they’re sewn on

A new lease of life

This lamp with shade I picked up for free at my local car boot sale, the lamp shade had a little mark on it so to cover it up a bit I found some of my hoarded badges and put them onto the shade. And now whenever I see a badge I like I buy it to put on my lamp  :D

I think it looks great – simple but effective is key

Keep calm + draw

After seeing this image on Facebook, I thought it would be great fun to write out ‘Keep calm and draw’ and then doodle round it like this guy has, as it will stop that blank white page problem



You can see more of his work at:


And here’s mine: 

Keep calm + draw

It was great fun and I think I shall do some more :D


Tree fairy

We were on a long weekend away in Hindhead, Surrey staying at the Hindhead Yha when on one of our many walks around the devils punch bowl we came across this amazing tree.

Can you see the face?
