  • 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 […]

  • Restrepo Pipped To The Gong By Inside Job

    By on February 28, 2011
    Alas Restrepo didn’t win the Oscar last night but they didn’t lose either. Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington have made a superb film documenting a harrowing deployment in Afghanistan. They brought a much greater awareness of the conflict to the world. Thank you to them for their sacrifice and commitment. But the war is not over for us, and as […]

  • Toy-Tastic Still 3 Days To Go!!

    By on November 29, 2010
    Hagar is back. He’s been away for 3 weeks in the USA doing his PDT (Pre-Deployment Training) as he prepares to deploy to Afghanistan in the new year. Good news is he got all the boxes ticked and he’s raring to go. This little three week taster of separation showed me that I need to be more organised for the […]

  • Juiced Up Large

    By on November 22, 2010
    Ribena said they would send me some free stuff. I love free stuff and as it happens, I like Ribena so for that reason I was in. They sent me a couple of handy sized cartons of Ribena Juiced Up Raspberry and Apple & Blackcurrant in a brown paper package tied up with string. I used to be called Moistie […]

    By on November 17, 2010
    16th November 2010 was a big day for history in the western world. I do like a bit of history LIVE! A where were you when moment……so two significant moments were heralded.

  • Decision Points & Realisation Day

    By on November 12, 2010
    Yesterday, was mental, mental, chicken oriental! I was up at 4.30am and I dropped my poor little Menace at her childminders at 5.45am (I dropped her in jimmie jammers, you’ll pleased to know that she went straight back to sleep as soon as I handed her over) so that I could nip up to London town to join Gaby Roslin […]

  • Sebastian Junger Talking To Hollywood

    By on November 8, 2010
    Today, was definitely the highlight of my blogging life. In fact, maybe my literary life. I got to hang out for 40 minutes in my cupboard, with Sebastian Junger. It was brilliant. I am still buzzing. He’s such a top bloke. He wasn’t actually in my cupboard, I managed to hook him up on Skype, and we did a live […]

  • Three Milly Mums Restrepo Screening

    By on November 2, 2010
    14 days ago, Steph, Faith and I decided f*ck it we were going to become Dogwoof Film Ambassadors because we wanted to see if we could make a success of bringing the film Restrepo to the military and local community. We liked the idea of being involved in a franchise business that was about film. Steph had a media background […]

  • Me, Restrepo and Brendan O’Byrne

    By on November 1, 2010
    I am stuck on Planet Restrepo and I can’t get off. I didn’t sit on the side of that mountain and get pounded by gunman that wanted to shoot at Americans but I am somehow inextricably tied into this film and no matter how much I yell ‘stop the bus I want to get off’ I keep getting pulled back […]

I really hate 80’s music! Sorry – but seriously living through it once was enough. I don’t mind if you love it, and I’ll happily dance round your handbag with you should […]
