It’s only me Ruth

Exactly what it says on the tin.

I’m a Yorkshire lass who loves to talk. My idea of a superpower would be to walk into Paperchase and be able to buy everything – and then have a place / use for it in my life. I also love decaf tea.

They say the pen is mightier than the sword, and our history goes way back. I had a career in music journalism before moving into the fast-paced world of motorsport PR. Now, I’m a full-time word nerd at a technical PR agency and I couldn’t be happier.

I’ve got a job I love, and the most fabulous husband. However, I don’t know about you, but the more time I spend on social media, the more I feel as though my own life is lacking in some way – I’m not slim enough, pretty enough, my house isn’t tidy enough, I can’t cook, I don’t wear enough fancy clothes, I don’t take photos that look like they’ve been shot in a studio – that kind of thing?

Truth be told though, I want to be, and do, all the above, but in my own frugal and honest Yorkshire way. So, this blog is an authentic collection of some of the interesting, and inspiring, things I see each day shared in a plain-speaking – and hopefully slightly humorous – Barnsley accent.

  1. Hiya, I’ve just recently started as a trainee marshal (I’m a 24 yr old girl) and a friend has pointed me towards this blog. I look forward to reading your posts 🙂

  2. I just stumbled into this blog looking for something (not that), hihi. Nice to read all your adventures on UK tracks, I envy you living in a country with such a huge motorsport interest (I myself live in Norway). Maybe I’ll visit some day, are planing a trip and a nice racing weekend somewhere in Europe next or the year after. Keep up the good work Ruth!
