All those who know me, know I like a joke. They know I have, in the past, said things like such as “If I got in power, the first thing I’d do is get rid of this Democracy business” and “The reason Democracy doesn’t work is that it puts power the hands of the stupid […]
I Feel Like Death
Sorry folks, but I’m just going to moan a bit this morning cause I feel like absolute shite. I went to bed early last night because I felt a migraine coming on – I got the lack of vision/spots all over the eyes thing. Then the headache started. Then the cold sweats and the constant […]
Economy Getting you down?
Is the economy getting you down? Feeling stressed because you pension fund has eroded to nothing? Worried the bank will go under and you’ll lose your life savings? Well, never mind. But one of my books. It won’t makes things better, but it will take your mind off it.
The "E" Word
Yep, the Economy. Sorry, but with all the shit that’s been going on, how can I not pass comment. And after yesterday’s disaster on the stick markets, it’s probably about time I did. I’m 34 later this month and by then I’ll have been in the workforce for a little over eleven years, having spent […]
It’s Monday Again
Yep, it’s Monday again. The last Monday before the clocks go back, which is good because when I was forced out of bed this morning by Mrs Nobbs, it was still bloody dark. Sorry, but I much prefer getting up when it’s light and driving home in the dark. This weekend was week two of […]
Love Romances Cafe Interview Catch-up
On the Second Monday of every month, the yahoo chat group, Love Romances Cafe & More, host a Phaze author day. Due to various work stuff, I haven’t been able to take part for a few months, but yesterday, I was. Typically, as well as all the banter between authors, the owner of the cafe, […]
Where’s the Year Gone?
It’s October tenth. 10/10. One of those rare days when people from the US and Us won’t get confused over the date. I’ll never understand why the US insists on putting the month before the day. To me, it makes no sense. It’s like putting the minutes before the hours. But it is odd that […]
How Banks Work. Or Don’t as the Case May Be.
Okay, so this is my attempt to explain the way banks work and if you’re not scared by the sheer stupidity of the system after reading this, you’ve obviously not understood. I read a similar examination to this (using actual money rather than apples – you’ll see) yesterday. I’m just trying to point out quite […]
Time to buy a Cardie
Yep, I’m officially past it. Officially too old to be Hip and Happening any more. The fact that I’ve just used the expression “Hip and Happening” is an indication in itself that I’m neither Hip nor Happening. I know I do a lot of moaning about getting old, even though I’ve yet to hit 35 […]
Today, the House of Commons will debate an amendment to the Children’s Act which will, if passed, outlaw the smacking of children by parents. Now, let’s leave aside the debate around the rights and wrongs of smacking which is so emotive that there can be no definitive answer and let us ask instead – Is […]
