It’s just not how I roll actually.

Well I was all set to post about the amazeballs start to our holiday that we had hanging out in the First Class lounge. In fact I had pretty much already written the post. I was going to regale you with tales of wonder and delight. Well it serves me well and truly right for counting my chickens doesn’t it.

The perils of being a woman – Peril 1 Feminine Hygiene

Let’s be honest, women have a bit of a rough deal when it comes to . . . well everything really don’t you think?

Homeward Bound

Now I know that some of you may know that I have been lucky enough to be shortlisted in a teeny tiny little thing called the MAD Blog Awards.

The Bright side
