Diet Coke break

Diet Coke break

Yesterday I had an enforced Diet Coke Break… And no…I don’t mean that kind of Diet Coke Break ladies! I have not managed to get my hands on Ben Cohen’s torso after my post earlier in the week, sadly… Unfortunately, my kids have decided that I drink far too much Diet Coke for my own(…)

What To Consider When Booking Laser Eye Surgery?

I am short-sighted – have been for a while, since I was eleven to be precise, and I have always wanted to have laser eye surgery…it seems silly not to at least consider it given the advances in technology. Not to mention the advantages for someone who has a family; I would have to keep(…)

Forgetting birthdays: Its becoming a habit…

Forgetting birthdays: Its becoming a habit…

This is a collaborative post with Rapid Parcels as per our disclosure policy. I do believe I am going senile… Stuntboy was six a couple of weeks ago and I remembered that, but nothing else seems to be sticking.

Hysterectomy recovery: Bring on the Scorpions!

Right, you can uncross your legs, I don’t mean the poisony, pinchy kind of Scorpions off of David Attenborough. Wouldn’t want those anywhere near the plumbing would we. That’s one job that Rogue Traders couldn’t get involved in… I mean The Scorpions, the rock band of course, silly. Lost me, nothing to do with hysterectomy(…)

Going into hospital: Beauty and the Beast

Going into hospital: Beauty and the Beast

Right so today I am going into hospital. So what did I do this week? I got my hair and nails done…go figure. Makes perfect sense doesn’t it – having a hysterectomy, you gotta make sure your hair and nails look OK haven’t you? What on earth possessed me? Maybe I am thinking that whomever(…)
