Chocago... (30 July 2009)

I am so stuffed full of 'Maltesers' my mouth feels like a facial loofah. My mouth feels like a facial loofah because I went to see 'CHICAGO'. So antsy was I that I needed chocolate to pep me up. I...

wednesday already (29 July 2009)

well I've just eaten a whole saucepan of cooked cauliflower, only half the colly mind you. Went to the YOUNG VIC to see THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE. An extraordinary piece. The writer went into a parlour of prostitutes, recorded them, and...

New Compooter news (28 July 2009)

This is my very first entry on my new computer. It's big it's fast and I've got to get used to the different keyboard and the new commands. There's no END button and as far as I can tell there's...

(26 July 2009)

Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s adaptation of GHOSTS by IBSEN is intense, to say the least. The five actors perform in one little drawing room. The atmosphere oppressive and dark. The candles and gaslight that illuminates the last quarter of the play is...

Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s adaptation of GHOSTS by IBSEN is intense, to say the least. The five actors perform in one little drawing room. The atmosphere oppressive and dark. The candles and gaslight that illuminates the last quarter of the play is...

Hair today and gone tomorrow (23 July 2009)

Okay so many of us know about Alopecia, but how many of us know that jaw realignment can make the difference between a bald pate and a good head of hair. I was so shocked when Dr.Mohammed talked to me...

Say it Again Sam (22 July 2009)

Dear Ann, as a matter of fact Siddhi is half Iitalian half Venezulan, she speaks four languages, has lived all over the world her last port of call was Hamburg. Does she call me 'Jeni the Jew?' No, but she...

The equation of my mind. (21 July 2009)

Tonight Siddhi the Kraut and I went to see such a bad play that we dared not look at each other. We left the theatre pretty damn quick. It was an ordeal watching a team of eight actors trying to...

The Sun'll Come Out Tamari. (20 July 2009)

When Tristram Stuart was born the angels must have known he was destined for great things. He is an inspiration. A maverick. A darn nice dude. A scavenger, activist, Cambridge Graduate, long-haired protester and a FREEGAN. So what is a...

Noisy Numpties (19 July 2009)

Please forgive me for a moment I just have to change out of these clothes I've been strapped into all day; a pair of black leggings with pink flowers over a pair of shiny tight M&S keep you thinner pants,...

The Plimsoll Line (18 July 2009)

Dear June, yup women have always had to consider their age; too old to get married, too young to be respected, too old to be noticed, too young to be taken seriously, too old to be visible, too young to...

Turn the 'age (18 July 2009)

Dear Fee, I knew it was James Stewart in 'Rear Window', I can see his face and hear his voice. But I got caught up in something in the kitchen and Peckory Greg got top billing. Watching footage of Fern...

Davy Jones' Mucker. (16 July 2009)

Jim pulls the curtains closed, I open them. Jim closes the curtains I open them, and so we play musical drapes. Our flat in Battersea is on the river, opposite loads of flats, next door to trees and round the...

Burma (14 July 2009)

This morning at 8.30 the new six foot bed arrived. Two big blokes refused tea, took away the old bed and left us with two tons of plastic wrapping and eight wheels that had to be pushed into the bed...

Alls Well That Ends well (13 July 2009)

First things first, lets not go down the route of bullying each other again. Scientists have a place, natural practitioners have a place, parents have a say in what they do with their children. I have a say in what...

Bee's buzzed off. (12 July 2009)

Thaid Up ( 9 July 2009)

I walked in really fast this morning. I stopped off in a chemist in Victoria and bought really expensive blister plasters. Buy cheap buy twice. I bought a packet of three from Asda and they were about as effective as...

Frozen River ( 7 July 2009)

I bought new blister plasters from a chemist in Soho. Got to LBC Towers ripped off the old elastic bandaids and replaced them with my newly minted cushioned one. Oh the joy of being flat-footed again. Coming home on the...

Flat broke... ( 3 July 2009)
