I had a pretty exciting time the other week, I spent several pleasant hours on a Sunday afternoon swinging my chopper in the garden. Yup I was chopping logs with a great big axe! Whenever I visit may parents in rural Shropshire, I usually get roped into some kind of manual task. Sure I moan […]

Wow, I seem to have gone through a wormhole to a parallel universe – that of the Hitched. In my Year of Many Dates, I’d forgotten what that universe was like. No more scowling at snogging couples on the train. No dashing home to check for messages and views at the expense of cleaning the […]

A lot of you fellas were about 4 when this movie came out, but for those of you who weren’t, ya’ll will remember the scene in the movie where Harry and Sally are having brunch (that wonderful New York institution that I miss so much on gorgeous sunny sunglasses Sunday’s like today) after both had […]
