Obviously right now its survival, staying at home with our little family and keeping our heads. But Corona (which just makes me think of that Whoopi film 'Caorina, Corrina-which, and I acknowledge that I am digressing but that film has caused me to believe I can change traffic lights by blowing at them??!!) has got … Continue reading What exactly is my plan?
Please know that if I could I'd be around yours in a flash, putting the kettle on and rifling through your cupboards for favourite mugs and shouting to you in the other room whether you wanted 'coffee, tea or something stronger?' Simultaneously, opening the packet of biscuits I bought, scoffing one, and arranging the rest … Continue reading If I could
Not the King, or the Queen (Is Carole the Queen?) but the Tiger.* I have the yellowing teeth and whiskers, but my general hair care is not as high a standard as this cat! I feel like I want to rip apart something or growl-both not socially acceptable, not that that matters at this time- … Continue reading I am the Tiger
I am surprised I haven't written a blog in so long, mainly because we are in lockdown and we as a family have been self isolating for over a week now.

Today I saw Little Women at the local cinema and I lost my shit about it! I mean I love Greta Gerwig (director) and I love the book(Louisa May Alcott). It helped that 5 friends, no children a glass of wine, a giant mug of ginger and lemon tea and some chocolates and sweets accompanied … Continue reading Tears and red coats
I have just darned/stitched up my broken coat (do you darn coats or is it just socks?) On my bed whilst drinking hot sloe cordial and coughing like a heavy smoker (which I am not). I'd like to romanticise about this moment and say it is turn of the 20th century Americana folk...it's not, it's … Continue reading The winter of discontent
You have seen it correctly, and no, I have not mixed up my phrases. Although that does happen at lot at this stage of life.
