Mulberry bags, Yay or Nay?




If I say Alexa, what do you say?

If I say Del Ray, What is the first thing that comes into your head?

Effie, Cecily, Eliza, BAYSWATER.

Hear that? it is the sound of a penny dropping. (I should really factor in inflation but "Hear that? That's the sound of £2.37p dropping really have the same effect does it?)

Mulberry, even the word is enough to make some people drool. And yes, I am including myself in that statement. I do not, and probably never will, own anything by Mulberry. But that doesn't mean that I cannot dream.

Part of me thinks that it is a HIDEOUS amount to spend on a handbag, especially in this day and age, but another part of me occasionally whispers in my ear, "If you own a Mulberry, then you have made it, you have earned it and you will be forever happy, and possibly lose weight" (Although this is also the voice that tells me to eat my children's Easter eggs while they are asleep, so I do tend to try to dampen down the enthusiasm of that voice just a little) 




This is the John Lewis selection of Mulberry www.johnlewis.com/mulberry (Neither John Lewis or I will be held responsible for anyone ruining their laptop with drool) I can spend hours, nay, DAYS, looking through their site wondering what bag I would choose if I could afford one. My decision also changes depending upon my mood as well. Somedays I am more an Alexa person, and other days, I quite fancy a Del ray, or possibly a Bayswater. sigh


So let me ask you this, A Mulberry bag, an investment purchase or a pipedream? Something to work towards as a reward for when you have earned it? Or a waste of money?


And if your answer is YES, a purchase should one day be on the cards, what bag would you go for?


Let me know.

Recipe for The Apprentice



Take 14 stone of brash city boy, 

Add in one fame hungry contestant, who swears blindly they are there for all the right reasons. 

Slowly blend in one stroppy female, 

Gently sprinkle in a cockney diamond, 

Thinly slice in one beautiful female contestant who says that she hates to be judged on her looks and then spends all her time yelling how she has been overlooked, ignored and been subjected to jealousy, because of her looks. 

To the mix, gently fold in one or two quiet characters. You may forget to add this vital ingredient, don't. They will prove an essential addition. 

Then shake vigorously for 10-12 weeks over a high heat. 

You can then reheat the same ingredients every year as needed without fear of the final results going stale. 

Congratulations, you have created The Apprentice 2013/14/15/16


Can you think of any ingredients that I have missed out on? 

(Apart from Sugar?)

Nom or Vom



So once more Blogger is being an arse about uploading pictures so I am having to go in via the blogger app and add pictures from there, some may be too big, some may be too small. But, there ARE pictures and let's face it, Nom or Vom would be pretty poor without the pictures.

I haven't got a clue who today's Nom or Vom is, I can tell you that he is an actor, but I got distracted on Google Images and needed to cool off a bit so IMDB kind of passed me by a bit, sorry about that.

So without further ado, because let's face it, you lot aren't here for the words, it's Friday, and I bring the hot dudes, and today I bring you..........


Colin Egglesfield. (Nope, me either)

So Ladies and Gents,

Nom or Vom?

Life Lessons I have Learnt From Candy Crush




I think by now we all know what Candy Crush is. A highly addictive game that can suck hours from your day and gives you NOTHING in return, absolutely nothing.

I was a Candy Crush addict, and I had shame.

But then I stopped seeing it as a game, and truly began to see what the developers of Candy Crush were really trying to show us.

Candy Crush isn't just a pointless game, it is a manual for life, and without even realising it, we are learning valuable lessons as we play. (Stay with me here)


Firstly, it starts off easy. There is no point in making it too hard, otherwise we would all give up too soon.

As we travel through and things get a little harder, we may need to lean on our friends for some support. When we feel we have no life or we have run out of options, turn to a friend and ask them for help, you will sometimes be surprised at the people who are there for you offering you a new lease of life, and sometimes people will let you down and not be there when you need them the most.

Sometimes there are obstacles put in our way. Some you can go round, some you can go through, but there are no obstacles that you cannot overcome if you put your mind to it.

There will be a sense of satisfaction at achieving your goals, and however small we should be proud of our achievements.

There will be bombshells, sometimes when you least expect them. but they won't keep you down for long.  You will pick yourself up, dust yourself off and carry on. 

There will be chocolate, and a little chocolate is okay. But too much chocolate is bad for you.

It gets harder the longer it goes on for, and occasionally when you think that you cannot carry on, you need to take a while just to look back and see how far you have come, and then you will be okay.

SEE? Is this just a game? I don't think so.

Candy Crush should be taught in SCHOOLS! I should be able to get a degree in it. In fact, screw school entirely. Candy Crush is all the life lessons we will ever need, don't you agree?


Now can someone send me some lives please, I'm all out.



So what do you think? Is Candy Crush more than just a game? Have YOU learnt anything from Candy Crush?


Let me know.

Spheksophobia



Spheksophobia. A fear of wasps.

 They say that phobias are an irrational fear. I say KILL ALL THE WASPS in the world with fire. Hell, kill everything that even looks like a wasp in the whole galaxy. (Irrational? Moi?)

I have had this fear of bees and wasps since I was a child. I nearly threw myself off a cliff in Lanzarote once as a wasp-like flying thing got within 20ft of me. (I think once their hearts started beating properly again my parents were tempted to throw me off the cliff as well) 

I KNOW that the worst a wasp can do is sting me, and luckily I am not allergic (I don't think I am anyway, and I'm in no rush to find out) but that doesn't stop me being absolutely petrified of them.

What exactly do wasps bring to the party anyway? Bees I understand. But wasps are just evil. Even in cartoons, bees are cuddly and cute and wasps are the devil in a stripy jumper. (Kind of like a psychopathic Where's Wally?) I have to admit, I am struggling to see why we need wasps at all.

And what is with their ability to sting me hundreds of times? A bee? It stings once and then it tears its own intestines out as if to repent. A wasp? The wasp has no remorse, in fact it comes back and does it again. Bastards.

What I am thinking at this moment is that my fear is not so irrational.


Now some people have phobias of things such as clowns, rollercoasters and even balloons, whereas others have phobias of spiders, snakes and water. No phobia in my eyes is worse than another, if you are scared of something, you are scared.


So what I want to know today, to make me feel better, seeing as I have still not found the carcass of the part wasp, part butterfly that I sprayed to death in my living room last night is, what is YOUR phobia?


Is there anything that scares you? Or have you had a phobia and managed to get over it?

Let me know.

St George's Day-Is It A Day To Celebrate?


April 23rd marks St George's Day. Once a day when England celebrated and showed how proud we were of our country, now it is almost as if there a stigma attached to St George's Day and we shouldn't be allowed to be proud of England or being English.

Well I disagree.

For a long time, the St George's Flag and the Union Jack were hijacked by people who wanted to use it for the wrong reasons, they were adopted by the bnp, (I won't capitalise their name as quite frankly, they sicken me) and other knuckle-dragging neanderthals who brought shame to the flags and made being proud of our country a racist statement.

But then attitudes changed, last year we had The Jubilee, Euro 2012, The Olympics and The Paralympics all in quick succession and England flew flags for all the right reasons. For what seemed like a fleeting moment it was ok to be proud, it was supportive to fly the flag, and put the Great in Great Britain once more, but slowly this has tapered off again. Today is St George's Day and I haven't heard of many people planning on celebrating this day.

Ask an Irish person when St Patrick's Day is, and they will be able to tell you. A Scottish person when is St Andrew's Day, same story, and ask a Welsh person when St David's Day is, they can usually also tell you. It is a day to celebrate who you are. But in England? It seems we shouldn't celebrate or be proud at all.

Because it seems we have nothing to be proud of.

BUT I AM PROUD OF MY COUNTRY.

Yes we have no money, but we haven't given up fighting to get it. We possibly have no room, and yet we welcome people who need sanctuary, and some people have no hope, and yet we still do what we can to support them and each other.

Now, more than ever is a time when we should be proud of ourselves and what we have and can achieve.

I love my country, I am proud of my country and my heritage.

For me, I love the English fighting spirit, the bulldog spirit as it were. We never give up thinking that things will get better. It is a positive step.


Tell me what YOU love about England. Will you be celebrating today? Or do you think we have nothing to celebrate at the moment?

Let me know,

and a Happy St George's Day to you all.

Stat-free Blogging


Next month this blog will be three years old. Three years? That has gone fast. A lot has changed in those three years and neither my blog or I are the same things we were back than. But, as with every change for the better, you learn a lot about yourself and last week I changed the way I blog forever.

Stat-free blogging.

After three years of constantly checking my stats, striving to improve my weekly figures and trying to use the data to see what people like to read and what they don't like to read, I've now gone completely STAT-FREE..

It's so liberating. I've uninstalled my Google Analytics and even taken the app off my phone. Not only have I got to a place in my life where I accept who I am, I am now accepting what my blog is as well. Will my traffic still continue to grow? Of course it will. Just because I don't check my stats each day, it doesn't mean people won't be reading, it is content that brings all the readers to my yard,

And if there are any PRs that need my stats to be able to work with me in the future, well why not look at the interaction on my blog, the amount of fantastic and witty comments left by people who read each day.

That is worth a hell of a lot more to me than any numbers in a column.

And it should be to any PRs as well.

The stress is off, Stat-free is the way to go for me.

How about you?

Have you considered going stat-free? Or have you never checked your stats in the first place?


Let me know.

Sharing Is Not Always Caring.



'Lucky Pennies', 'Grumpy Cats', 'If I get 1 million likes I will shave a pony' (Okay, that one may have been me) 'Inspirational Quotes and even 'Your E Cards'


STOP SHARING THEM ON FACEBOOK.

Yes some of them are funny, some of them are cute, but let's face it, most of them are just damn annoying. Can you imagine being in a room with a group of friends and they all start saying the same thing to you, one after the other? Well that is pretty much how Facebook is feeling to me right now. (Apart from it feels like everyone brought a plus one to the party, I swear I don't know half the people on my Facebook anymore) (And WHO invited my mother???)

Facebook has become less friend interaction and more like shouting into the wind and hoping that someone presses LIKE.

Oh for God's sake, Facebook has turned into Twitter!!!!!!

Even George Takei can't take a shit on Facebook without people sharing it these days. 

And it is the ones that are completely pointless that get shared the most. The Lucky Penny is a prime example, I promise you now, the only person that will feel lucky the next time someone shares that penny, is their private proctologist.

It is the Facebook equivalent of a chain letter. Not only is it shoved through your door, (Internet) you are fully expected to continue the chain and pass it on, and it is annoying the hell out of me.  

Sharing is NOT always caring, and in this instance I am caring an awful lot that you are sharing this crap.

Feel free to share this post though, yes?

So what do you think?

Am I being oversensitive here? Or has Facebook become one big massive retweet of the same old recycled rubbish?

Dear Stirling

Dear Stirling,

You are an ass.

Yours sincerely,

A mother of two daughters who I am trying to teach can do ANYTHING they put their mind to. A mother of a son, who I am trying to teach can do anything he puts his mind to.

A mother of three children who I am trying to teach to work hard, to strive for what they want to achieve and let their only limitations be themselves. I don't want ANY of my children to think that they will not be able to do something JUST because of their sex.

"I think they have the strength, but I don't know if they have the mental aptitude to race hard, wheel to wheel" - Stirling Moss

I don't know why I am surprised, this is the man who recently said that he wanted to be played by someone masculine in a film made of his life, "Not a poofter or anything"

Some people may argue that he is from a different time, with different views, and I will argue that I owe it to my children to stand up and say I disagree with his views, outdated or otherwise they should not go unchallenged.

ALL of my children are equal, male, female, none of them are better than each other because of their sex, Stirling.

If my daughters wanted to drive F1, I would give them my blessing, if my son wanted to drive F1, he too would get my blessing. It's not about their sex, it's about whether as an individual they could handle the pace, pressure and had the mental aptitude. Some women cannot do this, but neither can some men.

So Stirling, you are an ass.


Yours sincerely


A mother of three individual children.

What do you think about Stirling Moss's comments? Was he right to say women don't have the mental aptitude to race in F1, or are his comments outdated?

School Hell-idays


Hear that?

Me either. That is the sound of silence. (Hmmmm, catchy, someone should write a song about that)

HALF TERM IS OVER!!

All hail school, all hail the teachers, all hail pretty much anyone who has anything to do with a school right about now. Hell, I would kiss the lollipop lady right about now if I didn't think that one kiss from me would distract her from her child safety role. (Maybe I will kiss her at the end of her shift)

I love my children, I do. But if I would have heard the words, "Mum, look at me, look at me" one more time over the holidays, I would have gouged out my own eyeballs with my own fingers, out of spite. If I would have heard the words, "Mum, can I have some money for....(insert various options here) then I may well have had to chain myself to a cash machine out of protest, and if I would have heard the words, those dreaded, dreaded words, "Mum, I'm bored" which are usually said just ten minutes after finishing doing something awesome, just one more time, I may well have had to bore into my own brain, with an electric drill, yelling. " BORED, BORED, you don't know the meaning of the word bored, I'M bored, BORED to the BRAIN"

I wish I could be the sort of mother that wafts into the playground after a holiday and says, "Oh no, the holidays went too fast, I wish I could keep them off school a little longer" Instead I'm the mother that tears into the playground on the first day back, 20 minutes early, ranting that school holidays are too long and I didn't get this long off when I was a child, and sticking my fingers in my ears when someone tries to tell me it's only 5 weeks until the next holiday. (I think that woman is out of traction now)

So I am going to enjoy the peace, savour the silence and cherish the moment, because it isn't that long before the next school holiday.... Apparently.

Will you miss your little cherubs? Or are you going to be doing the 9.01 dance of joy at the school gates too?

Let me know.

Chatted up by One Direction

Well I'm a popular chick today! Now One Direction have also declared their love for me.


[Liam]
You're insecure,
Don't know what for,
You're turning heads when you walk through the door,
Don't need make-up,
To cover up,
Being the way that you are is enough,

(Liam, I hear what you're saying, but I'm concerned that the next thing out of your mouth will be, "Why are you going out? Am I not enough for you? That skirt is a bit short isn't it?)

[Harry]
Everyone else in the room can see it,
Everyone else but you,

(Should've gone to Specsavers, Harry)

[All]
Baby you light up my world like nobody else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,

(If that floats your boat you should see what I can do with some hose and a golf ball)

But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell,
You don't know,
Oh, oh,
You don't know you're beautiful,
If only you saw what I can see,
You'd understand why I want you so desperately,
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe,
You don't know,
Oh, oh,
You don't know you're beautiful,
Oh, oh,
That's what makes you beautiful

(So the beautiful thing about me is, I don't know that I'm beautiful, but then you tell me in a song, so now I know I'm beautiful, does that mean I'm not beautiful anymore? My head hurts)

[Zayn]
So c-come on,
You got it wrong,
To prove I'm right,
I put it in a song,
I don't know why,
You're being shy,
And turn away when I look into your eye eye eyes,

(Sorry Zayn, Harry gets all the chicks, AWKWARD)


[Harry]
Everyone else in the room can see it,
Everyone else but you,

(See Zayn? Harry is even telling you now)


[All]
Baby you light up my world like nobody else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell,
You don't know,
Oh oh,
You don't know you're beautiful,
If only you saw what I can see,
You'll understand why I want you so desperately,
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe,
You don't know,
Oh oh,
You don't know you're beautiful,
Oh oh,

[Harry]
That's what makes you beautiful

Na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

(What IS the fascination with nans?)

[Harry]
Baby you light up my world like nobody else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell,


You don't know,
Oh oh,
You don't know you're beautiful,
(Oh I DO, Harry, I really do)

Chatted up by Justin Bieber


So I think Justin Bieber is trying to chat me up through the medium of song.

Below I give you my thoughts on his loving words.

Enjoy.

Justin Bieber - Boyfriend.

If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go

(What, like NEVER?)

I can take you places you ain't never been before

(Your basement perhaps?)

Baby, take a chance or you’ll never ever know

I got money in my hands that I’d really like to blow
Swag, swag, swag, on you
Chillin' by the fire while we eatin’ fondue

(The 80's called, they want their chat up line back)

I don't know about me but I know about you
So say hello to falsetto in three, two, swag


(Can we talk about your use of the word swag, Justin, and exactly what sort of woman you are trying to attract)


I’d like to be everything you want
Hey girl, let me talk to you

(Not if the restraining order goes through in time)

If I was your boyfriend, never let you go
Keep you on my arm girl, you’d never be alone

(That's what I'm concerned about)

I can be a gentleman, anything you want
If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go, I’d never let you go


Tell me what you like yeah tell me what you don’t
I could be your Buzz Lightyear, fly across the globe

(Anyone who uses Buzz Lightyear in a chat up line is possibly too young for me. Actually, make that definitely too young for me)

I don’t ever wanna fight yeah, you already know
Imma make you shine bright like you’re laying in the snow
Burr

(If I'm laying in the snow, I don't think I will be shining bright, I may be dead, or possibly drugged, either way, I
don't think shining is in my future, Justin)

Girlfriend, girlfriend, you could be my girlfriend
You could be my girlfriend until the w-w-world ends

(I really don't wanna)

Make you dance do a spin and a twirl and
Voice goin crazy on this hook like a whirlwind
Swaggie

(Swaggie? Mixing it up a bit are we? At least you are listening to my constructive criticism)

I’d like to be everything you want
Hey girl, let me talk to you

If I was your boyfriend, never let you go
Keep you on my arm girl, you’d never be alone
I can be a gentleman, anything you want
If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go, I’d never let you go

(We've been over this)


So give me a chance, ‘cause you’re all I need girl
Spend a week with your boy I’ll be calling you my girlfriend
If I was your man (If I was your man),

(Man? Ummmmm, may I refer you to the Buzz Lightyear comment)

I’d never leave you girl
I just want to love and treat you right

Na na na, na na na, na na na
Yeah girl
Na na na, na na na, na na na ey
If I was your boyfriend
Na na na, na na na, na na na ey
Na na na, na na na, na na na ey
If I was your boyfriend

(Justin, Justin, Justin, Justin, now you are bringing your nan into it?)



Sorry, Justin. Don't call me, I'll call you, okay?

Nom or Vom


Now I have never really seen the appeal of today's Nom or Vom, but when he announced last week he would be withdrawing from movies for a while, it seemed that many people got a little (try, a LOT) upset. (I was devastated at first, I always get my Goslings and Reynolds confused)

Now just in case you were one of the inconsolable, your man has a new film coming out soon, called Only God Forgives, so I am sure that will keep many of you going, for a little while at least.

And as if that wasn't enough for you, Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you today's Nom or Vom........ (With a saucy pic or two to brighten up your Friday)

Swimwear for Summer


With summer slowly creeping up on us, now is the time to start shopping for beachwear and this season's collections are more flattering, stylish and exciting than ever.Whatever your shape or size, there is a style this season to flatter all figures.

Swimsuits have just got sexy; forget about frumpy looking navy or black little numbers- this season they have been given an upgrade with an array of flattering cuts to boast about, in addition to bold prints and eye-catching colours - enough to make any woman feel confident and look great when it comes to strutting their stuff by the pool or on the beach this summer.

If you are feeling a little brave, you could consider a tankini; a two piece with a vest top, or if you are feeling really brave go fora bikini; a two piece with a bra top. Tankinis are all about the brights this season, which is ideal for showing off that summer glow. They are also a great way to cover up the lumps and bumps we all try to hide. Bikinis have also gone bright and eye catching and although they look great on a slim figure, are not restricted to the size 6's out there; try out different cuts that accentuate your curves and before you know it, it's Kelly Brooke eat your heart out.

To look and feel your best when it comes to stepping into summer, find yourself the most flattering, eye-catching swimwear by visiting www.bonprix.co.uk where there is a range of styles just waiting for you to try out. Favourites include the ever flattering bandeau bikini top, the under-wired tankini top from the BPC selection and the Crown Applique bathing suit.     

What's your favourite?

Dacre, The Despicable Headline Maker.



Now I may be incredibly late to this party, (It's okay, I brought wine) but I found out yesterday, due to admittedly well-deserved outrage across various social media channels, that the Chairman of The Editors Code of Practice Committee is the Editor-In-Chief of that well known heralder of equality, harmony, peace and love, The Daily (Hate) Mail.

The Chairman of the Editors Code of Practice is the Editor-in-Chief of The Daily (Hate) Mail?

I swear to you now, if I would have heard this little of snippet of information on April 1st I would have sworn blind it was a bad April Fool's Day joke. I wouldn't have even thought about it for a second, (and I am the person who, just for a minute, thought that the Illamasqua 'The Age of Beige' was an excellent idea)

But alas it is true. Paul Dacre is the Chairman of the Editors Code of Practice (It is as ridiculous an idea as giving the keys of Broadmoor to a paedophile.........................Oh, hang on) and has now promised to fully investigate a story that he ran in his own newspaper only yesterday

I cannot be alone in seeing that something is terribly wrong here, can I?

It is like getting a group of serial killers together in a club and then letting Andrei Chikatilo be in charge of the rules of conduct.

I am all for a free press, during The Levenson Inquiry, the British press said that people, politicians and celebrities should be held accountable for when they do the wrong thing, but SURELY this should also extend to the press themselves. It is one thing to police yourself but when the sheriff is the meanest, baddest muthafu**er of them all? 

WHAT THEN?

When you give the key to the Lion's cage to the Lions themselves, people shouldn't be surprised when the lions start walking around like they own the whole zoo.




What do you think?

Do you find it ludicrous that an editor of The Daily (Hate) Mail is allowed anywhere near a code of practice committee?

Did you find yesterday's Daily Mail front page offensive?


and what do you think about the press governing themselves in general?


Let me know, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Update Available




I don't know about you, but I am getting pretty sick and tired of constantly seeing the words 'Update Available' flashing across my laptop and waving at me from my phone.

'A Java update is available'

Well of COURSE a Java update is available, I think that the people at good old Java are on their own search for perfection and will not REST, or stop kicking out updates, until they find it.(Which so far they HAVEN'T)  And if it isn't Java, then do not fret my small fretting child, Adobe is there to fill the update shaped hole that you currently have in your heart. (And laptop)

DO THESE PEOPLE EVER REST?

What is this quest  that these techies are on, anyway? Can they not perfect something in one go? Do they all sit around a table discussing what they need to do in their next release and decide, "Hey, it's not perfect, but we will sort that shit out in a week or so when we release the NEXT update" (And then LAUGH IN OUR FACES)

I ask you WHY, in the name of all things technical can they not just get it right? Just stop it with the constant updates and upgrades.


It is the same on my iPhone. Update this and update that. I don't WANT to be updating apps on a daily basis. Did you not test this thoroughly BEFORE you released it? Or even worse, you go through the rigamorole of updating, you press run and...... "YOU CHANGED THE BLOODY FONT?" or "Oh, that was blue and now it is yellow? IS THAT IT?"

Currently I have 12 updates to apps on my iPhone. None of them are interesting, not one.

'What's New'?


Well let me tell you.

- An issue that caused the app to get stuck for some users while updating.
(Could you not have tested that before releasing the PREVIOUS update?)

- Adds Ukranian language support
(To my Period Tracker. I can see that being extremely useful. What is "Shit, you are late" in Ukranian anyway)

- Bug Fixes
(May I refer you to above? No, not the Ukrainian thing)

- Other minor fixes
(Can you ALL PLEASE just get your shit together)

and my personal favourite.

- Our biggest and best update yet
(Well now you are just taking the mickey out of us. Why not just add an LOL to the end of it?)


Updates. The bane of my existence. I hate them.

Almost as much as I hate seeing the little number of updates available on my phone!!

Guess I better go and update them all.

I may be some time.




So what do you think is going through Java and Adobe's heads with their constant updates? Does it frustrate you as much as it does me?

And how many updates available do you have on your phone at this exact minute? Or are you more of a update immediately sort of person?


Let me know.
