    Hello! Happy March

    Time for daffodils, flinging off thermal vests (me) and St Patrick’s Day . . . Oh, where is my green fright wig? It looks horrible, actually – I much prefer my cheap Cleopatra black bob because you can slap on mucho eyeliner and experiment with the dark colour in your compact, the one you never use.

    Happy Holidays everyone!

    Happy Holidays everyone! Whatever you celebrate, have fun and peace, hug the people you love, and watch cheesy movies: my basic plan. Plus, decorate the house . . .

    Happy Mother's Day to all

    Hello everyone, and Happy Mother’s Day! I’m having the gate widened for the delivery truck of flowers . . . or would that be a bit daft?! Obviously I am kidding, girls!!No, seriously, all I want is not to have to get up first to let Puplets of Loveliness out, and to get a cup of coffee in bed! See, I am a simple creature. Motherhood does this to us – takes away all unnecessary stuff and makes us, well, not simple, but certainly straightforward.We ... read more
