Shoo Hoo Hah

He does it every time we go out – my husband asks “Are these OK to wear?” looking down at his trainers that are covered in fresh fox shite and wet grass from the most recent dog walk-athon and stale plaster dust and paint from an old DIY project. I answer him with a stare […]

Who’s There ?

Last night I found myself sat in a room in The Spiritualist Association of Great Britain’s HQ opening my head chakra to allow spirit folk to use me as a channel for their messages. This experience lasted an hour and cost £5 and came as a complete surprise to me because I thought I was […]

Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep

Who says London is the most expensive capital city in the world ? On Friday evening I drove into London in the nick of time – minutes after the congestion charge was no longer payable and pulled up at a parking meter in Covent Garden just as they stopped charging for the night.

My freebie […]

Good Times

Last night I sat in the back of a theatre and squirmed at first and then smiled a lot as five professional actors took my words and transformed them into a real play. I haven’t been as nervous since my son had to solo sing Pie Jesu to a crowd of 200 people when he […]

Stubbylashcious

I read this week that humans shed over 30 metres of eyelashes in their lifetime. This is aggravating news because I have spent my entire life wanting my eyelashes to be longer than they are. I coat them in vaseline every night to protect them, and talk sweetly to them urging them to grow. My […]

News and Views

I spent this morning in the company of Paul Ross and Jo Good who co-host the BBC Radio London Breakfast Show. I was invited to choose three stories from today’s papers to discuss on air. Before I did that Paul had a good laugh at my name, Anna May, saying that he had expected me […]

Crackers and Nuts

Dr Denis, yes Denis not Denise, Walsh believes that pain in childbirth makes the mother and new baby bond stronger, http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2009/jul/12/pregnancy-pain-natural-birth-yoga. Maybe demented Dr Denis suffered from constipation once so he thinks he knows what he’s talking about?

Any expectant mums packing their hospital/ labour bag need to make room for one more thing […]

NOT Home Alone

My husband claims he spent the weekend in France pulling a plane, which is the size of a family saloon car, along the streets of Douai on a piece of string. According to him he was cheered as he plane-pulled by enthusiaistic locals who threw tickertape to show their appreciation. That’s what he told me […]

Boogie Brother

I called to speak to my big brother today. He couldn’t come to the phone because he was still in bed at 2.30pm. The reason ? He had been to his works do (he is THE boss) where he had very much enjoyed the bottle of wine per head that came with the meal that […]

Cheap TV

Last night I watched Sky’s two part programme ‘My Breasts Could Kill Me’ which was presented and executive produced by a woman called Dawn Porter. It made me so angry that I couldn’t sleep and had to get out of bed at 3am to send Ms Porter an irate e-mail about why I thought her […]
