Howdy folks!   The disgustingly good looking Prabs over at www.AbsolutelyPrabulous.com, has featured one of my posts as part of her #OopsFiles series. Be sure to go over and have a read, it involves me falling over and faceplanting. For a change. There are a load of other hilarious stories […]

A Lesson in Theatre Etiquette. 6

Here in the Netherlands, as I’m sure there is in many other countries, there is a ‘Postcode Lottery’ that you can pay to be a part of each month. There’s a chance of winning a load of cash, otherwise what would be the point right? They REALLY want you to […]

No Carbs before Marbs! 6

The Antonator and I have finally booked our summer holiday, and we’re jetting off in August to the beautiful town of Marbella, Spain. You may recall that I made a New Years Resolution to lose a lot of weight and stop fucking eating. See here. Well, as it stands I […]


If The Cat Fits. 4

Happy new year now die

Happy New Year! Now Die…. 5

I’m actually knocking at death’s door. This may very well be my last post. It’s like my body has decided I’ve been having far too much fun and has gone ‘Happy New Year! That’s enough fun, let’s balance it out a bit. Now die’… I don’t think I’ve ever felt […]
