Should Writers Really Know How To Do Grammar and Spelling and Stuff?

It has been brought to my attention, on more than one occasion, that, when it comes to my blog, I am a little bit lazy. Not only do I hardly ever update it, but, when I do, my posts are invariably full of errors. The excuse that I tell myself for this is “hey, I’m … Continue reading »

Holiday

I’ve recently been on holiday. It was one of those caravan sites with a big swimming pool, evening entertainment (provided by people who failed to make it into the auditions for Britain’s Got Talent), and where, as part of the package deal, you get tiny people hidden in one of the caravan cupboards. I had … Continue reading »

On This Day… 3 Years Ago

On this day, three years ago, it snowed. We went sledging. So did Grandma… Here she is at the top of the ‘hill’ (we chose the toddler safe slope). Here she is a few metres from the top. Old people are good with sledges! Old people are… oh… Old people roll better than you’d think. … Continue reading »

No.2 (Part 2)

So, carrying on from my last, jabbering, mind-excretion (No.2 Part 1) - book two, pressure, zombie kittens… Oh, and yes, I am writing blog posts again! Of course it’s only a temporary thing. Soon enough I’ll be leaving months between each post, not intentionally, but just because I don’t have time. But for now, whilst I … Continue reading »

No.2 (Part 1)

I have my 2nd book coming out this year. Having a 2nd book coming out is exactly like having a baby coming out. Only less painful. I guess. And you don’t have to feed it. And… Okay, having a book coming out is NOTHING like having a baby coming out. But it is a bit like pooing … Continue reading »

Here’s The Pitch

Discover What You’ve Been Missing

I’ve been looking around the world of blogs, seeing what there is to see, and can report that, despite the wealth of talent and the never ending fountain of information they provide, I was sadly left feeling a little empty inside, unfulfilled, as if the blogosphere were missing some vital ingredient required to further the … Continue reading »

On This Day… 7 Yrs Ago

06/08/05 On This Day… 7 Years Ago It was my brothers/’s 28th & 30th birthday/s (they have their birthdays on the same day, but two years apart. I know, MENTAL!) Me and Laura had spent most of the year out of work, apart from maybe one day a week working as extras on Hollyoaks. We … Continue reading »

My Week By Numbers

New Things I Tried This Week: 3 Having a child free house for a whole night! Theo went for his first ever sleepover (he’s nearly 2). I got NINE hours straight! Green Tea flavoured Kit Kat. The entire thing was green! Tasted mostly of just wafer though. Going for a walk with no idea of … Continue reading »

My Week By Numbers

New Things I Tried This Week: 3 Crystalised Stem Ginger (it’s hotter than you’d think!) Walking like a clown (stupider than you’d think). Quitting coffee and alcohol at the same time (bigger failure than you’d think). People I Annoyed/Made Hate Me: 1 (I like to kid myself) I may have said “vagina face” to the … Continue reading »
