I Love Newbie London Tubers…

I can’t help it, they’re fascinating, and often you can pick them out a mile off. My tube journey home yesterday evening, sandwiched between walking through the grey, sleet strewn streets of London, took me via the London tube hotspots of Victoria, Oxford Circus, Baker Street and Paddington. I usually have my nose burrowed into a book. I…

Sometimes… Just how on earth do you say No?

Here’ s a little story… Picture this, you’ve been out for two dates with a guy that you just don’t fancy. He’s the friend of a friend, and he’s told her he really fancies you… not told you though… you know from her as she can’t keep secrets. He’s lovely and kind and yes, you have…

Happy New Year! …Any Resolutions?

Welcome New Year! New Year’s Eve arrives then passes and I had a cheery hoohar with friends. We spent December 31st 2014 in an entirely geeky capacity… playing lots of games, card games, and (cringe a little) numerous rounds of ‘Just Dance’ on my friends Wii thing. (I won a lot… I’d like to say I’m a…

Happy Christmas!

Well, dear WordPressers (WordPressees?), night is descending on my Christmas Day but it stops at our door and at our windows and looks in with intrigue, waiting patiently till we’re done. Just as Christmas should be, mine has been spent with family, and whilst some recover from their food induced, or alcohol inspired comas, I…

Should we Still Believe in Fairytale?

Once Upon A Time, it was believed that a man and a woman would fall in love and live happily ever after. I wonder how true this really is, forgetting times past when women were extremely unequal and marriage was for social gain or monetary safely, but considering our modern age instead? I Googled ‘Fairytale’…

Not-in-hell Carnival?

This, terribly wet, bank holiday weekend played host to Europe’s biggest street party… Notting Hill Carnival. This year would be my first visit. Before going, I was handed various different words of advice; don’t wear nice jewellery it might get ripped from your neck; don’t stay there after the sun goes down (do Vampires pop…

Do We All Become ‘Clones’?

Walking around the not-so-modest streets of London’s Victoria yesterday, I noticed a couple, hand in hand, walking in front of me. There were a number of things that particularly intrigued me about this couple and it has since made me wonder… do we all become clones? (…of one form or another, temporarily or otherwise.) I will…
