MailOnline, that means you!

I hate you.  You keep ruining the shows I am trying to watch.  I don’t read the articles but the pictures, video clips and the headlines you use tell me pretty much everything I am trying desperately NOT to know.

There are some of us who rely on catch up tv to watch the popular shows.  We can’t watch it at the time it is aired.  The reasons are numerous.  Mine is obviously that I’m an expat so I have to wait 24hrs to catch up.  But there are people in the UK who can’t either.  People who have to go to bed early.  People who work shifts.  People who are studying.  So many reasons.

So please, for the love of all things tv secrety, Continue reading


Armchair Detectives

I break with my catch up for an up to date event, because I have words in my head that I need to use up!

Last night The Boy and I ended up watching the new Amanda Knox documentary on Netflix. We have always both been interested true crime type things, and so the odd documentary like this is something we both want to watch and don’t have to compromise on!!

Sooooo Messed Up

Sorry… this is totally not a “holiday diary” post, but a “rant and rave” post.  I am mad and need to get the words out my head asap!

I’ve been reading the Daily Fail Mail today and there have been a few stories that have made me cross.

Firstly, a man has been cleared of rape at Southwark Crown Court.  He told the judge he may have accidentally penetrated the victim when he tripped and fell.


The judge needs to be Continue reading

Thinking out loud…

Let me start by saying how shocked and saddened I am with the recent troubles in Paris.  Daesh (yes, I am now calling them this after an incredibly though provoking piece in the international press about linguistics – here) are evil.  There are no two ways about it. Continue reading

Random thought…

The Daily Mail keeps telling me that people are models.  There is the girl who was 32 stone and lost half of that (bloody goody job to her, btw!), and now she is a model.  There is the pretty chick from Jeremy Kyle (who was attractive but not as pretty as the comparison against past guests leads you to believe), and she’s now a model.  They are two examples from today.  But literally every day there is a random in the papers that is now a model.  How?!  Who do they model for?  Why do we never see any of their portfolio.  Is this code for “unemployed” or something?  I just don’t get it!  I know some stunning girls who couldn’t get work as a model, so how are these people?  Or, are they less picky about the kind of modeling they do?  Whatever the reason, the Daily Mail is annoying the crap out of me with this.  Grr.
