Shopped until I dropped

Almost finished my Xmas shopping – finger aches from holding too many bags. Strange but true, getting into the holiday spirit, met two people who had both taken knifes to their fingers recently. The shops all seemed to be short staffed, the worst one being Jessops…very boring. There are various people I’m having trouble getting […]

Springtime for Hitler

Saw The Producers last night, Simon, who is busy decorating the Christmas tree says fabulous. I say marvellous or Simon says that’s what I could say. It was great fun, a wonderful cast and production, kinda magical, very funny, only we both say it went on a bit too long. It wasn’t full, so we […]


Interesting Tuesday evening, ended up using our biggest and sharpest knife to try and cut a piece of cheese, missed the cheese and went straight for my finger. Made my mum take me to A & E…her not being very pleased at having to give up watching Holby City for the real thing. Very luckily […]

Do you have any idea what you are buying?

I watched The Corporation on More4 – try and catch it when it’s on again. It’s not an easy watch, but worth staying with it, some of the information is both thought provoking and shocking and when ignorance is really no excuse, surely every bit of information on this issue, that takes us out of […]

Ill actually

Have been stuck at home in bed – and the weekend before Christmas… poo… spent yesterday writing cards and watching DVD’s. Finally saw Love Actually, which was ok and the right time of year to watch it, not sooo slushy. Have been buying xmas presents online, which doesn’t seem quite right, far too easy and […]

Lovely lunch

Had a lovely day with a kids free Anna. As we are both freelancers, we had our xmas lunch together – great idea. Had a lovely Thai in Wimbledon village. They have a new Ottakar’s bookshop, so I bought John his first Dr. Seuss book…will be fun to read it to him. Tonight, see if […]

Orange teeth and cake

As predicted, I failed to resist the gluten and have managed to get down a fair amount of cake – mostly my own. The lunch at the library was very pleasant and the vanillekipferl disappeared very quickly. Writing about the braces yesterday spurred me on and I finally managed to book an appointment – at […]

Braces huh?

For the last, I don’t know how long, I’ve been umming and arring about getting braces on my teeth. It’s a really horrible prospect, but my top teeth are bashing away at my bottom teeth – I’ve managed to chip them twice already. I’ve just realized though, that as this is the absolute worst time […]

Party party party

Ok, so talk about ignorance…. who knew the Narnia books were about Christianity (trust my school) – which I’ve been reading in the papers all weekend. Well, whatever it was about the second half was boring… and we weren’t smiling at the end because we thought it was sweet, but because we thought it was […]

For the knitters out there

I’ve changed from English style knitting to Continental style – going back to my roots… Camilla taught me in the summer, but I could only get my head around stitching and not purling, so I’ve now managed to learn both thanks to the wonderful Stitch and Bitch Handbook (see the sidebar link). I’ve changed because […]
