What was supposed to be a brilliant weekend book-ended by lunch out with mum and then lunch over at the BIL’s had a definite slump in the middle. I was bad this weekend and the residual guilt to hard to shake off. On Saturday, I took mum out for an early Mother’s Day lunch at the nice […]

After a day that I assumed meant spring had sprung and caused me to surf very.com for a new, lightweight spring blazer and some warm-weather, chunky work sandals and which also caused me to stumble perfectly on the most gorgeous, cerise barely-there’s with bows on the back which were simply too beautiful to remain unpurchased, […]

I don’t mind though – late birthday presents are highly underrated in my opinion; it’s another thing to look forward to once the […]

The Danny Baker gig fully exceeded both mine and Mr P’s expectations -he was fantastic. He talked solidly for two and a half hours, with a half hour interval, telling funny stories about his family and the famous people he’d worked with over the years barely pausing for breath, let alone a drink. He was eloquent, […]
