That’s Me In The Corner

Unfortunately, I can’t do justice to Michael Stipes’ soaring vocal, but as a teenager I could often be found skulking in corners, eagerly awaiting the comforting blanket of dusk. It was a huge gulf in audience, that leap from junior to secondary school, I’m not too proud to say I didn’t just flounder, I retreated. ... Continue Reading →

Suns Out Tums Out

I don’t hold ill feeling to those who enjoy a ‘staycation’ (save for the audible use of the word *shudders*) but personally, nothing puts me in a better mood than when the sun is shining on my face. For those diehards that say don’t knock it before you try it – I have mate!  I’ve... Continue Reading →

S#!ts and Giggles

I’ll be honest with you, before the mini people arrived on the scene, the most nerve wracking a bowel movement got was when the gorilla’s thumb was poking out and I’d forgotten to get another loo roll before unceremoniously parking my rear on the throne.  In my book there’s no better start to the day...

Be An Eleven Out of Ten

If you’re reading this, you may have cottoned on by the title, that I am a ma-hoo-sive Stranger Things fan!  Seriously I’ve lost count of the times I’ve binge watched both series whilst unceremoniously anointing myself in crumbs from scoffing one too many chocolate digestives.  However, my devotion to it goes beyond the van flips...

Always The Last To Know

If there was one song that would some up the soundtrack to my life it would most likely be Del Amitri’s prophetic; always the last to know. To begin with whenever I was out of my depth I’d try and cover it using the tried and tested Joey Tribbiani smile and nod method, but then... Continue Reading →

The Hunt For Red October

I’m not going to lie to you, I was a late starter to the world of self-maintenance.  That’s not to say I’m averse to hygiene, more I was naïve in keeping up with the times.  While my sister conspiratorially discussed VPL with her college friends (which to me sounded nasty and possibly warranted a prescription...

You’ve Got Mail

This might cause a rift between us but I’m just gunna go ahead and put it out there, for me You’ve Got Mail failed to live up to the chemistry of the original pairing of its lead actors.  However, my point isn’t to debate its box office success, rather I was hoping through the power...

Justice for Goose

Some people scour over photos or scrapbooks to mark significant moments in their lives.  Which, being a natural hoarder, is also a fond past-time of mine.  Often our lives are pinned not just with the faces of those we love, but also the pages we’ve turned and songs that have stirred our souls. For me,... Continue Reading →

Belt and Braces

The trouble with the legal sector is that even in this modern age, most people conjure to mind a stuffy belt and braces type with a penchant for pocket watches sat behind a monstrosity of a desk, on top of which lurk an avalanche of title deeds that wouldn’t look dissimilar to the artefacts Indiana...

Specs Appeal

The trouble with glasses is that every time the frames touch my face I internally cringe, recalling the cheap blue and white striped plastic pair I was prescribed as an awkward kid. I have moved on from the jam jars mind.  I tend to wear contacts mainly (or ton-tacts as my littlest refers to them)... Continue Reading →
