Hen Parties, Races and the Cheese Factor

No sash, no badges, no inflatable penises, no strippers, no tutus, no tiaras and no hen party traditional tat.  That was my explicit instructions to my hens, but did these chicks listen? Did they shite! My Maid of Honour spent many frustrating weeks trying to get some sort of idea from me as to what…

Loss,Robins and Cosmic Ordering

When I was 14 years old, my two grandmothers died within a month of each other. Christmas was but a few weeks away and it is one of the saddest times I can remember! My maternal grandmother (Grandma) had been diagnosed with throat Cancer and had fought it off to the point of remission, but…

Conversations with Yoda

“Do, or do not – there is no try”  Yoda. I recently made a new friend.  Yes, you read that right.. I made a new friend and she is blinkin fab!  When she signed up to the task however, I don’t think either of us realised that she was to become my life guru, my…

Consultant Moose and my Sexy Specs

So, whadda ya think?  These are my new specs.  I have near perfect eyesight, but I spent £120 on these specs and I’m really hoping they are worth it! A few blog posts ago, you may have read my musing on Amitriptyline and how just ten poxy milligrams were making my face fall off, but…

Dead Bones & Dickhead Dancing

Don’t ask me how I have dead bones – I have absolutely no idea!  So far, it’s just in my knees although the knock on effect makes me feel like my entire skeleton is fecked and I am one fall away from a mobility scooter.  The reality is probably more like, I am one fall…

I Won a Pole Dance Competition

I won a pole dancing competition.  My prize was a pole of my own.  I was in my twenties. I am now forty and I am thinking of digging it out of the garage and giving it another whirl.  I suggested it to my hubby to be, expecting him to be enthusiastic and in all…

Death by Cheesecake – Literally

So a few months back, I was stupid.  I played chicken with a cheesecake and lost. I thought that ordering a cheesecake, knowing full well that I am allergic to dairy and wheat, was risky, but I weighed up the options as I sat alone in the pub / restaurant / my office watching other…

Catheters – Up Yours!

‘Elegant’ title to this post I know!  Is there anything remotely elegant when it comes to catheters though? Yes, I know as I write this that all those blokes who have been searching the keyword ‘blonde’ found me and sent ‘hey, can we talk’ direct messages, will take one look at this post title and…

Saved by the Net

My day to day job involves supporting people to access the internet. For those technically savvy among you (which I am assuming is all of you, since this blog post is only accessible online) the whole ‘digital exclusion’ conversation might seem to be one big yawn, after all, why would anyone choose not to use…

Could you be on the Autistic Spectrum too?

I have traits of autism apparently.  I’m told these traits have been glaringly obvious to others on the spectrum and yet today I met the first ever person to call me on it. Now, as so many things fall into place, I am stunned that it was never glaringly obvious to me! I met with…
