It is not unusual to see post protruding from a letter box. Letters that the postman/woman has not fully pushed home… Junk mail force fed into the metal flap… But this was different and worthy of a quick snap… It was Sunday morning in a sleepy Suffolk village when I spotted this. The morning after … READ MORE

Brief encounter?

  I’d like pay a tribute to Bernie Taupin and Elton John. Firstly to Bernie for sharing the lyrics and secondly to Elton for adding such great, uplifting music. There have been many times over the last twenty years when those lyrics have resonated very clearly with me. So, I thought what could be a … READ MORE

Depression cure: Music is my drug of choice.

Since the BBC now accepts regional accents and having a party where we all took the p**s out of each other ( as only the Brits can do)  it got me thinking about the importance of clear communication. Now, being blonde and a Brummie, I feel I have carte blanche to poke fun at…blondes and … READ MORE

Call me old fashioned but you needed sixties’ sensibilities to appreciate the real, Vicious. I found myself transported, to a bygone era, one where cougars were still only to be found in zoos and not ogling younger men. Frances de la Tour, played the cougar to the amusement of her GBF’s. The rape ‘joke’ that … READ MORE

ITV’s Vicious. But was it funny?

1. It reminds me just how much better my life is now compared to when I was watching the original series in the 80’s. 2.The characters really are the most appalling examples of human beings. Back stabbing is an art form 😉 3. They don’t have money problems the way normal people do. They owe … READ MORE
