Brilliant boot liner

January 25, 2012

Black upholstery in the car  and a big blonde haired dog – not a good mix! I’ve bought this really inexpensive boot liner on Amazon for £23.90 and it’s doing the trick. There are much posher ones on the market but as I intend on taking it in and out it’s hardly worth the outlay. It comes with stick on Velcro to attach to the sides of the boot which on first glance looks a fiddle but really wasn’t. www.Amazon.co.uk…

Amazing argan!

January 23, 2012

Well the lotions and potions arrived and I’ve been using them for the last 2 weeks. Most importantly I have a sensitive neck and chest area which seems to have developed over the last 2 years and I can only put down to age and the dreaded menopause which makes me fearful of putting anything on my skin which is going to enrage it. I have had no ill effects at all from either the pure oil or the 2 creams I ordered…

The Two Brian Turners!

January 21, 2012

I love watching Brian Turner cooking on Saturday Kitchen. And what a great cook he is! There are so many ‘Trendy’ cooks but time and time again I always return to Brian’s recipes which over the years have never let me down. If you want to cook traditional English food and want no nonsense recipes you can’t go wrong with chose one of Brian’s. He cooks from the heart and is passionate about the quality of the ingredients and the satisfaction of his…

Jen has my vote

January 10, 2012

I love watching ‘Dancing on Ice’ but this Season is even more exciting as I can champion my friend Jennifer Ellison. I saw her this Saturday looking amazing, toned, fit having worked hard to shed weight for the task ahead. I spent weeks with Jen in ‘The Vagina Monologues’ and I can honestly say the girl is a delight to work with so I know she will be a hit with the team. We actually met years ago though when I was…

Tis the season to wash the dishes…

January 5, 2012

Today I have been like a woman possessed my mission to vanquish Christmas! It is only when the last bauble is down and the fridge has been cleared of turkey remnants that my head is clear to take on 2012. As much as I might enjoy the festive season my God am I glad to see the back of it! My friend Sally and I are at the moment undecided on which of us takes the trophy for loading and unloading dishwashers it…

Change those rooms, please!

January 5, 2012

Changing rooms in shops – This really annoys me! If I had a shop I would want help my exasperated customer (who is standing in front of a mirror in their mismatching bra, pants and dodgy old socks because they think no one is going to see them) by making the process of trying on clothes easy. Yesterday I called into Marks and Spencer’s in Guildford to do a little bra shopping (you can’t beat them for ‘worker bras’). After pulling together…
