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 →

Fingers of Fury

No matter what the job entails, whenever someone discovers you work from home – the standard stock response is ‘oooh I’d LURVE to do that’.  You could be packing organs for sale on the black market and they’d still ask how you managed to land such a plum role.  Despite the fact that my work...

Park Life

I don’t know when it happened, but at some point I went from a 20+ something belting out one of Blur’s greatest hits with an oversized pint as they closed Glastonbury, to a 30+ something wedged halfway down a Little Tykes slide!  It had to be on the rare day I was wearing shorts; the...

Hairvolution

Let me take you on a journey, to a time before GHDs, when curtains and blond tips were all the rage for boys and Sister Unella wouldn’t cry out ‘shame’ behind you if you donned a scrunchie. When crimping was ‘in’ and it was de rigueur to style yourself on Madonna’s 80s look. So many... Continue Reading →

Grey Worm

I know what you’re thinking; what does that fitty from GoT have to do with accepting your body, but that exquisite example of prime time jailbait is the namesake for my pelvic floor tear which for years I avoided touching, let alone braving the mirror #thelaceswereintheywerein (honestly it looked like a blind man had used...

Rage Against The Machine

Brooks (Shawshank Redemption) was right “the world went and got itself in a big damn hurry”; which is especially true in the case of technology. My first phone was a Siemens C45 – an absolute fossil by today’s models but at least you didn’t need an instruction manual to use it!  Now I have a... Continue Reading →
