Happy Valentine’s Day

Will you be mine?

It’s sickening when you’re single, and let’s face it, it isn’t much better when you’re attached. But it isn’t the idea of V-day that makes me shudder, it’s the way that the media takes it and rams it down our throats. Continue reading

Ivan Noble 1967-2005

As an avid reader of the BBC News website, I was saddened to read that Ivan Noble had passed away aged 37. He had been writing a diary about his treatment for a brain tumour for the past two years and I read every single one. Those who did hoped that this day wouldn’t come, but knew deep down that it would. Each article made you put the small worries of your own life into perspective.

2nd hand car trouble

On the weekend of Don’t Forget Your Mobile, as I was cruising along the M26, my ‘check oil’ warning light started to flash intermittently. I arrived home and found that there was no level to check – I was totally out of oil and nothing was registering on the dipstick. I didn’t have a leak and there was no blue smoke when I started the car, which is usually a sign that the engine is completely worn out. Continue reading

One Life, Live It

This quote has been doing the email rounds for months now, I received it again today and it still makes me smile reading it. It just creates such vivid imagery and a sentiment that makes me want to follow it to the letter. Even if you’ve seen it hundreds of times before, it’s here for you to read and contemplate.

Free IT Support

The Internet, email, dvd players, picture/video mobiles – things that we are surrounded by on a daily basis. We nearly grew up with them, but not quite. It’s only within the last 5-10 years that they have become mainstream, even so, the majority of our generation know how to use them. It’s our parents that seem to be playing catch-up the whole time.

Shopping to alleviate the boredom

I arrived at Bluewater shopping centre just before 11am this morning. I still had a little time to sort myself out and then give my friend a ring to say I was here, and where shall we meet. I took the face off my stereo and slipped it into my handbag at the same time taking out my mobile… Continue reading

Little Miss Reliable

My little Clio and I have travelled the UK far and wide together – Canterbury, Liverpool and Edinburgh to name a few – and I’m going to miss it when I eventually sell it. I’ve done 75,000 miles over nearly 9 years, which actually isn’t that much and is average for a car of this age, and it still nips around as if it were made yesterday. Continue reading

Band Aid Dil-Emma

When I first heard the new Band Aid 20 single I thought it was absolutely terrible. I’m assuming mainly because I like the first one, which has been around every Christmas for the last 20 years of my life.

The other reason is ‘the rap’. Sung, if you can call it that, by Dizzee Rascal. It’s not that I don’t like the fact that there is a rap on the single, it’s because I despise his voice! NB: I do like the fact that he wrote those 2 lines. Continue reading
