Have you noticed how documentaries are dumbing down, while dramas are revving up? I came home last night to find TL watching a BBC4 documentary about the birth of the computer. After watching for a while, I realised that the presenter was making the same points again and again – why? If your audience has […]

I haven’t blogged for so long, I have a bit of a pile-up of subjects to address. Blogstipation, I think it’s called. Well, I’m going to put all that right and get everything out of my system, if that isn’t too revolting a metaphor. I’ll start with the obvious  - our wedding. One friend very […]

Gosh, I haven’t popped in here for a while. I shall have to have a quick flick round with my feather duster and get down to some serious catching up. In the meantime, have a look at this lovely picture, taken by Jay Mountford, from our wedding on Saturday. The dress did turn up, the […]

Hello my lovelies, I am back at last from a little jaunt to Copenhagen. TL had to go to a conference so I scrounged a lift to see whether the whole of Denmark is like Borgen, The Killing and The Bridge. Well, I’m glad to report that, as far as I’m concerned, it is. I […]

Lovely to be included in the fabulous Tara’s video of fabulousness over on her blog Sticky Fingers. We certainly are a talented bunch, we mummy bloggers. Though, with all the juggling, cake-making and multi-tasking on show, I kind of wish I’d chosen something a bit more radical than cleaning as my own claim to fabulousness. […]

  The very lovely Liz from The Mum Blog has asked me to tell the world my ‘Our Song’ choices. I’ve been mulling over it for a while, for various reasons. It’s hard, if not impossible, to pick one song, having had two major relationships in my life. And what about the girls? We’ve had […]

An enormous sense of relief today after a night out with my book club chums – my flesh-and-blood book club, not my virtual one, though it would be brilliant to organise a get-together with my cybereading friends. We were talking about a newspaper report saying doctors often refuse treatment when they have a serious illness […]

Branching out ….

Off I went yesterday to John Lewis at Bluewater. It was like being called home to the mothership, as various lovely members of staff encouraged me to run my fingers through piles of cashmere jumpers and admire the burnish on the Mulberry handbags. Bliss! In fact, the lady in charge of handbags even asked me […]

Piece of cake

Feeling quite smug today as I’ve actually done the sensible thing for a change, and snapped up Delia’s christmas cake kit early from Waitrose, before its nationwide sell-out. In fact, my smugness levels are at risk of reaching previously unknown heights, as TL actually made the cake yesterday with his little ones. My goodness, Delia […]
