Hello, how is everyone?  Today I’m talking about takeaway food, you know, the sort that is prepared and cooked by somebody else, in a place you have no control over.  How safe is it to eat takeaway or café food?  How do you pick where it is safe to eat?  I’m not too sure, and if...

Here is the first interview I have ever conducted and I am excited to have Peter Hobbs with me.  Peter is a fantabulous person I met when I first joined twitter, and he was kind enough to interview me on his blog http://peterhobbs1.wordpress.com/.  He does loads of author interviews so I...

After last week’s post on some of the annoying things our men do, I wanted to show how fair I am, and I have allowed, sorry requested, Peter Hobbs to pen a rejoinder.  I have to say, I have some issues with some of his observations (what do you expect?) but if I replied I think this blog could...

Hello everyone!  I’m happy because today I have found my inspiration for another blog entry.  I get ideas then discard them because I think ‘no one wants to read about that’, anyway here is something that at least half my readers will want to read, and I guarantee they will be nodding...

Words.  Language.  Throughout my life some of the most enjoyable and frustrating memories involve my good use of, or not so great use of, words.  We’ve all had those times where someone is being a total pain or asshole and we think of the good comeback after it’s all over – one of my...

Hello peeps.  Thinking about what to write and decided on my recent trip to the nursing home to see my demented aunt.  My Aunt's room is situated on the first floor with other residents who are not quite with it.  She remembers who I am, which is good, but is prone to making...

I was outside the other day and my son narrowly missed having a bird poo on his head.  It landed right next to him, one more step and he would have copped it.  It reminded me of the day at school when, as a sixteen year old, I was sitting outside, trying to appear cool and nonchalant as...

Husband and I were in the car, me driving.  I had just helped him move his dinghy and been pushed into a bush, no biggie, right?  We were on our way to a friend's place via a busy road with no lanes in which to pullover.  I felt something delicately feather my ear so I went to move...

Hello again.  I am braving it out for my second post and want to start by saying thank you to those lovely and intelligent people who were nice enough to read my first blog, you obviously have good taste.  My blogs are random as I like to discuss what is going through my brain on the day...

Hello, nice to talk to you, well, at you, considering where we are.  This is my first blog post ever, anywhere and I have no idea what to talk about.  I was encouraged to potentially embarrass myself by a fellow twitterer @PeterHobbs1, so if anyone is to blame, it's him.  So what do...
