This May Be The Last You Ever Hear From Me

This May Be The Last You Ever Hear From Me

This afternoon myself and my lovely ginger husband are going camping. This may be the last time you ever hear me refer to him as "lovely" considering it was not a word I used during our test erection of the new tent. The man at Tent World told us the Lakeside Extended would only take 15 minutes to put up but he failed to take into account that my sensitive other half would be attacked by giant killer mosquitoes only five minutes into it and have to abandon the task to drive to the pharmacy to bu...

What To Read This Summer Down Under

Since this was published a week or so ago, I've also read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Yikes! My husband read it too. Now we have fitted each other with tracking devices and there's a nanny cam in every room. Next on my list: Why Be Happy When You Can By Normal by Jeanette Winterston. XSK

Embarrassed? I Should Be

Embarrassed? I Should Be

I've had this website (not perfect, I know, but the best I have to be getting on with) for five years and just yesterday someone sent me a Facebook message to ask why there was no mention of my first book, Stuff It: A Wicked Approach To Dieting. Dedicated to "my friend, the elastic waistband" this book was inspired by reading Ellen Degeneres and Fran Drescher's half nonsensical memoirs, for want of a better word, but it concentrated on my personal struggle with always being on a diet but never g...

Why I Love New Zealand, Part One

So, we're thinking of going camping despite the Curiously Deflating Airbeds of 2003 Incident but this time I want to take the dog even though I know he will get stuck down a hole, up a tree, end up in someone else's suitcase or get prickles in his armpits and make me carry him two hours to the nearest pair of scissors, all of which has happened before. The first camping ground I rang to see if pooches were allowed said they weren't. With no exceptions, ever, even for a dim witted kerry blue te...

Change of Name

OK, so here's the thing. I am a really useless blogger. I've spent nearly four years apologizing for that but, erm, I don't really want to do that any more. The trouble is that every time I am doing something that is really, really, really worth blogging about, I am having too much fun doing it to go and find a computer to write about it. That can't be wrong, can it? I don't know how everyone else finds the time but as my Mum used to say, "If everyone else went and jumped in the lake, would you ...

What? No Ants? Nos Vamos!

What? No Ants? Nos Vamos!

OK, so I’m a bit behind on the blogging but in a nutshell, left Paris for Berlin, then left Berlin for London. Stayed in amazing penthouse apartment. Actually, over-stayed in amazing penthouse apartment. Note to anyone else who has an amazing penthouse apartment: never invite me to stay in it because it will be extremely hard to get me to leave. Especially if you have a cinema room and the Olympics are on. All residents of Rio, take note. See above? That's the view from the deck of the amazing ...
