Win My Art!

The Orlando attacks have not just disgusted me, but have made me question my fellow man. This world is a tiresome, ignorant and dark place at times. In the hope of spreading some light, sunshine and a bit of rainbow coloured solidarity, I am going to give away one of my original art pieces. It…

Celebs Really Do Make Stuff Up. I Know, Right?

Self-confessed Z-list botherer Jack Tweed, has tweeted his followers to inform them that he and his late wife, Jade Goody, would often make up stories to sell to the press for quick money. I’ve read some comments regarding this from my fellow human beings. A lot are not so nice. Look – really? Did you all…

Nearly the Big 10

Time is drifting ever onwards towards my 10th wedding anniversary. It is mind-boggling how I’ve managed to get to this massive milestone without completely driving my husband round the twist! It has not always been plain sailing – we have had a lot of bumps in the road, pretty much all of them have been…

Tesco Agree To Remove Stolen Trolley from Local Park

The weather has decided to warm up sporadically, so we took the opportunity whilst it was sunny to take the kids to the park. It is not close enough to our house to walk to, so we had to drive there. Annoying, that we don’t live that close to a park, but we try to…

Clarkson, Hammond & May Finally Give New Amazon Show Name

The long awaited title of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s new Amazon show has finally appeared: The Grand Tour. My first impression was that it was a bit naff and found May’s suggestion of calling it ‘Nigel’ instead (on the understanding that Nigel *is* actually a name and the show needed *a* name)….

I Just Don’t Condone Horse Races

With the Grand National taking place again, I feel a bit restrained by my objection to it. Because I am a carnivore, I feel like it’s not okay for me to be against animal cruelty. I have seen the reaction on Twitter and Facebook when someone pops their head above the parapet and says they…

On a Diet

I have begun a diet and this time, I think I’ve made some headway with it (although sometimes it doesn’t look or feel that way). I never weigh myself as a rule and leave that and the outcome to it with those in the medical profession who do it because they need to. I have…

Why I Don’t Get On With Springtime

With the advent of spring, brings the rise of hope and expectation – new life, warmer days and bluer skies, scrubbed clean by the winters clouds, snow and rain. We emerge from the winter as animals from burrows – awake and alert for the prospect of better times. That isn’t me. I’ve not always gotten…

A Chorus of Crazies

Stephen Fry – actor, writer and national treasure – recently left Twitter, a platform he had been so synonymous with. This decision came in light of the negative attention he drew by making a somewhat droll remark about a winner at the recent Bafta awards. Keyboard warriors in their droves booted off about how mean…
