• Watches are the shoes of men

    By amodernmilitarymother on May 28, 2014
    Hagar says that he loves watches like women love shoes and handbags. He definitely has a bit of a watch fetish as he flicks through the internet and covets the big, hard shiny timepieces. He doesn’t need one. They are very expensive and in case you hadn’t noticed there’s a recession on. And yet magazines are brimming with adverts for […]

  • Who wants to be a millionaire?

    By amodernmilitarymother on May 28, 2014
    Cole Porter sang, ” who wants to be a millionaire?” and the reply was ‘I do’. What do women want? If you had a Millionaire Genie what wishes would you have granted. Aladdin may have needed a magic lamp to grant his wishes, but you could also try the Millionaire Genie slots game at 888ladies because he knows what women […]

  • Real life: Word Up – this is what’s going down in my hood

    By amodernmilitarymother on May 22, 2014
    When I say ‘hood’ it may conjure up images of an urban ghetto, but the truth is I live in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by a mix of awfully, awfully nice people and others who like to stretch out their words with ‘rrrrrs‘. So my mantra has been for the last year ‘work where I live’because I want […]

A BLOGGER IS NOT A JOURNALIST A BLOGGER IS A PUBLISHER For example, the Andy Coulson would not approach Rupert Murdoch and ask him if he would support the […]

  • Steal their style: The best celebrity mum looks

    By amodernmilitarymother on April 30, 2014
    There are always those mums who just look effortless, no matter what time you bump into them, whether it’s at the school gates, the summer fete or at the park. While most of the time, it’s easiest just to throw on a pair of boyfriend jeans, a slouchy tee and a pair of biker boots or Converse before running out […]

  • High Flight – Rest in Peace #RIP

    By amodernmilitarymother on April 28, 2014
    High Flight Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, –and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of –Wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung My […]

    By amodernmilitarymother on April 9, 2014
    If I had £5000 to play with I would invest it in my next book ‘I Hate Housework’. A book is a business; a start up. I know that in order to drive sales and get the book into bookshops I need to be able to order a print run and invest in marketing. It’s the law of speculate to […]

  • Real Life: Food is the Food of Love

    By amodernmilitarymother on April 4, 2014
    I love food. I am without doubt a foodaholic, although I have never considered myself a foodie. According to Wikipedia a foodie is “a foodie is a gourmet, or a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food and alcoholic beverages. A foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out for convenience or hunger. While gourmet and epicurean can be used […]
