MY CHRISTMAS WISH LIST

Really all I want for Christmas is for this godforsaken virus to fuck off. Excuse the language. As that’s not going to happen by Dec 25th, the other thing I would like is for the new garden fence to be fitted and to find someone who can build me a wardrobe in the space where […]

GIFTS FOR THE DOG

Let’s be honest, we only buy gifts for the dog that are really for us. If I was to buy Thomas Frank his actual favourite things, it would be a block of cheddar, some old recently worn socks and his own portion of a full roast dinner. He’ll no doubt get all that, but I […]

HOME GIFT GUIDE

I’m on a roll with my gift guides, that’s 2 in 3 days! I have to admit that this one is right up my street. I love gifts for the home but I often feel guilty about buying myself too many throw cushions. Weirdly I don’t feel that way about buying myself endless dresses… What […]

BEAUTY GIFT GUIDE

I wasn’t going to do any gift guides this year, but then I thought, why not. It gives me an excuse to peruse the internet for things I might like and look at nice things for a while. Plus I know how helpful it can be to have some recommended products all in one place. […]

LOCKDOWN LOUNGEWEAR – THE SEQUEL

Here we go again. Lockdown Loungewear Part 2. The revenge. It’s like Groundhog day, but without Bill Murray, the fun or the Beaver. Was it a Beaver? First time around it was new, there was some hope it might get better when summer came. This time it’s the same sense of dread but colder, darker […]
