The radio goes on in the morning when I get up which is anything between 6am and 7.30am. That’s after I go into Miniminx’s room, give her a kiss, tuck her in and tell her she can have a few more zzzzzs before getting up. She always gives me a lovely smile. It’s worth getting […]

I received these latest chapters on Friday for my sneak preview of Corduroy Mansions. In this tranche, we travel across town with Caroline, who discovers that her would be lover James bears all the hallmarks of OCD – so kissing is off the cards. While they begin a journey into a the West End to […]

Just because I blog, doesn’t mean I’m a trainspotter but perhaps it’s seeping into my existence. Only a month ago I took a steam train up to Corfe Castle and loved it. And then we got invited to see Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends. We popped in to see at the Vue Leicester Square […]

This post of Susanna’s really made me think of times long gone and the games we used to play, so I’ve created my first meme and yes, it’s a nostalgia trip but it’s also a nod to invention and imagination. 1. The game I loved? British Bulldog – loud, brash, dangerous but great fun, knock […]

My favourite song? The one I caterwauled as a soothing bedtime lullaby? ….and look what it inspired …not bad eh? She actually plays you know!

Pre dinner drinks last night and I was having a conversation with one of my dearest and most entertaining friends, over delicious Lapsang Souchong Martinis (how very now) at High Road House, about how the big fear of the information superhighway, commonly known as the internet, would lead to the atomisation of our culture. As […]

I’m having a rather large glass of wine after a shambolic episode. I’m sure everyone down my street heard, I’m sure they even heard me on the other side of the river. I’m quite jumpy so everyone in this neighbourhood is used to my occasional squawks but this was a corker. I saw a spider. […]

A little trip down memory lane for me is always a jaunt around South Ken to see the museums. I love them dearly, and when we were kids, we went there all the time. My favourite was always the Natural History Museum. The Victorian architecture is, even now, quite scary but there are so many […]

I confess, I’ve been blubbing like a good’un and it’s no surprise really. On a sunny September morning I had one of those awful calls. Sunday before 7am. The one where you leave the house in a frantic state of agitation because you know things are never going to be the same. Ever. Again. And […]

Sometimes, we are all on the verge. Of something new, perhaps a love affair, perhaps something really exciting or sometimes, just the inevitable – you know, like boredom and existential angst. It’s been two years since I headed out on the road to seek my career nirvana. I couldn’t look in the mirror any longer […]

I’m surrounded by lovely flowers. It’s no special occasion but it does seem to mark a change of season. I bought these as a last ditch attempt at keeping the Summer spirit alive and these poor drooping sunflowers are really trying to hold their own aren’t they? What is it about them that’s so beautiful […]

At 8.30am on the first day back at school …you’ll be behaving like a maniac calmly getting out the door as I hope and pray will I. However, there is a certain level of angst that accompanies the first day back at school and I hope I am not alone. I mean, there are so […]

Sh*t what the hell is wrong with me? All weekend I’ve had sweaty palms, butterflies and insomnia. I’m sure I’ve developed a twitch under my left eye (people have been winking back at me all weekend – it’s unnerving). I’ve been clenching my jaws, chewing my nails and I’m so jumpy I feel like, like […]

If you can’t quite get the slant on my little pun, well let me explain. I may be able to cook and sew, change a fuse and put up shelves but when it comes to day to day drudgery barefoot in the kitchen streamlined housekeeping I’m severely lacking. I think Nomestic is the new nom […]
