There was an incident a few years ago, for which the consumption of alcohol was largely to blame for my behaviour. It made me realise that contrary to popular belief (in my head, where all the neural pathways lead to signs that read: ‘You’re brilliant!’) I didn’t become more of a legend the more I drank. I, would you believe it, actually became less of a legend, the more I drank. Continue reading
Some people have a signature dish. Crumble. Fish pie. Maybe they make a mean toad-in-the-hole. Others are famed for their obsession with football or, for my international readers, perhaps that thing they do in America where they run around a football field not calling it football, dressed in a cage, wearing black eye make up.
Me? I’m getting pretty brilliant at herniating discs in my back. I’m 33 years old and I’ve just done it for the third time. It’s not big and it’s not clever. It’s chronically painful and anyone who has never had a bad back can just bugger off right now because they have no idea how much pain I

In which I review Sticky9 – a service for printing your Instagram pictures. I even have some to give away!
I love Instagram. Ok, anyone looking closely at the above screenshot of my Instagram profile will see that I only have 100 followers but I don’t Instagram my pictures for attention.

I detest them. My New Year resolution was to not have any resolutions.
But god damn all the bloody enthusiasts making January their month to join my gym. It’s a small gym. We don’t have room for new people who won’t last till February. Continue reading

The team at Ilumi are back. We have joined forces to give away a hamper full of gluten free goodies. Continue reading
I like to laugh in the face of tradition. You won’t catch me answering to the name ‘Mrs Jones’ (the hubby’s surname) and when I was asked if I had something blue, something borrowed, something new and something old, or whatever the hell it is, I said: HA! OF COURSE I DON’T! Because wearing something blue, borrowed, old and new is a tradition AND a superstition and I’m fond of neither.
