Friday Face: End of February

It’s been a while since I last did a Friday Face post, and technically I’m not doing one now either, because this is actually my Thursday Face. Whoops. I’m not going to have time to post on Friday, though, so…

Formspring Friday: Your questions answered!

I WAS actually joking when I mentioned “Formspring Friday” last week, but I’ve started to get a few repeat questions over there, which made me realise that some people might not realise I was answering some of the questions on…

I Do Not Live In London

A question from Formspring: Do you ever feel that your business is more difficult not living in London? Other than “I am not a shop”, the phrase I use most often on a day-to-day basis is “I do not live in…

Changing Rooms

For the last year or two (or seven), I’ve desperately wanted to move house. The problem with that, though… well, actually, there are LOTS of problems with that, but the main one is that we just can’t afford it right…

How I Met My Husband

I had two questions on Formspring about how Terry and I met, so I decided to answer those first : How did you and Terry meet and fall in love? How did you and your husband meet? You seem like a perfect couple –…

Ask Me Anything…

So, in common with pretty much everyone else on Twitter, I joined Formspring, which is a site where people ask each other questions and, er, answer them. I was actually a bit wary about this. I tried something similar a…

I am a winner!

I know the image above is actually pretty hilarious given that I recently went out in public wearing two different boots, but allow me to bask for a moment in the reflected glory of The Fashion Police, which has just been…

Review: John Frieda Luxurious Volume Collection

A couple of weeks ago I was sent some of the products from John Frieda’s new Luxurious Volume range, which, I’m sure it’ll come as no surprise to find out, is designed to help make your hair look fuller, thicker,…

The Morning After

Low battery, may fall asleep at any second

Hey, remember that time the low battery warning on our carbon monoxide detector started frantically PEEPING in the middle of the night, and we couldn’t work out whether it was the friendly “Hey-diddly-ho, neighbour, my batteries are staring to run…

OMG! OMG! Sunglasses update!

THEY WERE HANDED IN TO DOROTHY PERKINS! I am amazed! And happy! Something I lost… has been found! And so has my faith in humanity, because I seriously thought that if someone found them, they would either keep them or stick…

Friday Photo: Reflection

Gran Canaria, December 2009. At least SOMEONE in the house still has his favourite pair of sunglasses. And oh, hey! If you look really closely, you’ll see that I’m actually wearing mine in this photo, too. Gah. Nope, still haven’t…

Things I Lost, Part 557

So, I lost my sunglasses. And yes, I know what you’re thinking. Other than, “Holy hell, is this woman going to lose EVERY. SINGLE. THING she owns?” I mean. (The answer to that, by the way, is surely “yes”. Yes, it would…

Team Mouse!

Well, today was the day the mouse traps in our attic were scheduled to be inspected by The Man From the Council – or The Mouse Man, as he shall henceforth be known. Or maybe The Evil Mouse Killing Man,…

Of Mice and Men from the Council

I wish this could be a more interesting newsflash for you, folks, but the things that live in our attic? Yeah, they’re mice. Not vampires. Not Nigel, the International Man of Mystery Next Door. Not even Shergar, or Lord Lucan,…
