• Longleat’s Tigers Are Grrrrrr-eat!!!!

    By on September 7, 2011
    Maybe I am having a mid-life crisis. I am 40 next birthday and so I am primed and ready for one. For the last year, I have been thinking a lot about freedom, independence, feminism, being a woman, the divine feminine, mother earth, mother nature, conservation, sustainability, survival, war, why war, health, wealth, love and happiness. I feel like I […]

  • This Little Piggy Went To Market…..

    By on September 5, 2011
    I can really feel the autumn setting in. The light has changed and the sun has dropped lower in the sky. This weekend I gathered the last of the damsons that had fallen from the tree. I made the kids gather bags of Bramley apples to be added to the sausages so they can eat them and we can herald […]

  • I Am Not ‘That Wife’

    By on September 1, 2011
    First, of all I have to tell you that I am not an ‘Army wife’. I am the estranged wife of an ‘air force’ pilot – a person who is the Royal Air Force. It’s a point that those not in the military fail to see the difference and so, invariably, I am referred to as an Army wife. There […]

  • Sally Bercow on Big Brother…..does she, or any spouse, have a duty to their spouses job/role?

    By on August 28, 2011
    There is a thread on Mumsnet in the Feminism Section called ‘Sally Bercow on Big Brother…..does she, or any spouse, have a duty to their spouses job/role?’ The thread started by The Posie Parker raised the question: “She’s going in BB, her husband is a public, very public, servant does she make his position and role more difficult?” Are we […]

  • Vagisil – Feminine Itching

    By on August 26, 2011
    I have to blog one off. I don’t have the time to do this really as I am up to my neck in work and the deadline is looming; plus them at the MOB are doing my head in, apparently The Godfather is not happy. But the days of the RAJ are dead – viva la liberation… Anyhoo – in […]

  • Bramble and Apple Crumble

    By on August 22, 2011
    The kiddiestinkers are pining for daddy. I know this because they refuse to sleep alone. It’s very tiring but I am used to having children that don’t sleep. To be honest I don’t sleep much myself. Today was Sunday, and the sun was shining, and so, I wanted to do something homemaking, and comforting for them. Something to ground them, […]

  • Cream Crackered

    By on August 20, 2011
    If I was Hagar, and I’m not, but as a professional ghost-writer I can pretend I am. I know him so well – reading between the lines in his correspondence, I would say he is beginning to feel weary. In his voice, but my words re-constructed from what I know based on past experiences as well – life in Afghanistan […]

  • Eerie Silence

    By on August 16, 2011
    I don’t think that our worlds could be further apart right now. Hagar is hot, dusty in the darkness of battle and I am just about keeping my head above water in the wetness of summer. I feel like a hamster in a wheel. I am clinging onto control in a tug of war between chaos and order. Two weeks […]

    By on August 7, 2011
    ‘Their deaths are a reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices made by the men and women of our military and their families, including all who have served in Afghanistan’, President Barack Obama said. ‘We will draw inspiration from their lives, and continue the work of securing our country and standing up for the values that they embodied.’ RIP 38 lives lost […]

  • The Truth Is We Can’t Handle The Truth

    By on July 22, 2011
    Do we want the truth or do we like to wrap ourselves up in someone else’s fantasy life? The grip of the news hacking story is dying down now and Cameron is hanging on by his finger tips. ‘I did not have any inappropriate conversations’ he declared to parliament. Cleverly put. What he is really saying: ‘I did have some […]
