Since I last blogged.

Since I last blogged, I became an auntie. My niece was born in late December and she’s small and soft with a tuft of hair. Jillianne and I bought her some duck-beak slippers. As of a few days ago, she has begun to smile. Since I last blogged, I’ve climbed two mountains. Mount Ozzard (750Continue reading “Since I last blogged.”

A woman’s heart is in her Apple iTunes

This is something I know to be true. A woman’s heart is in in her Apple iTunes.  For a depiction of her recent moods and emotions, consult her recently played. To understand the person she truly is, past the flesh and down to the bony core, examine her top 25 played of all time. ForContinue reading “A woman’s heart is in her Apple iTunes”

A monologue about love, ugh ffs

You’ve seen a few films in your time, so you’ll know what I mean when I talk about the dramatic monologue in the last minute of a film sequence, when the main protagonist (probably) is talking about what they’ve learnt throughout the film’s narrative.

I’ve never understood how an actress who drunk sweet tea at rodeos in her home-state of Texas could be so in touch with me, a girl born in Rush Green hospital in Dagenham on an average Thursday. On an above average Saturday (31st Sep) I watched the third Bridget Jones film, Bridget Jones’s Baby, releasedContinue reading “From Sophie with love: An average ode to Bridget Jones”
