STOP THE SPOILERS!!!!!!!

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

London Will NEVER Fall

London-Attacks-Twitter-Meme

I have so many words today that this could be a jumbled mess that I never remember the actual starting point for.  On the plus side it won’t be as bad as it could be as it’s first thing in the morning and so there is no wine involved.

I was sat on my couch last night when a BBC News Alert binged my phone.  Because of the regularity of famous people dying last year, The Boy always asks “who has died this time” when he hears it.  This time no one – yet. Continue reading

Lesson Sadly Learnt

If you see a new restaurant or a cafe that looks amaze, and you really want to try it, do. As soon as possible. Don’t wait a few years to get around to it. Because when you do it might completely suck and then you’ve wasted a few years waiting for the right time to treat yourself.

Yes, this really can happen. Today proved that completely.

I have been walking past Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar for the last few years.  Self preservation has always kept me as far away from it as possible.  I mean, a whole cafe dedicated to chocolate?!  Amaze and sooooo dangerous. Continue reading

Letter of Complaint

Dear Reel Cinemas / Dubai Mall Platinum Movie Suites,

Since your manager failed to call me back for a discussion, I am writing to you via social media because I am still quite disappointed at my experience with you last weekend.

The Boy and I came to watch “Allied” with you, and decided to make it dinner and a movie because we really do like your snacks.  But sadly your service was not up to standard at all.

Upon arrival I was seated by one of your team in my favourite spot in the lounge.  I had got there early so that I could place my order and relax before seeing the movie.   Continue reading

Olympic Sized Objections to the Media

I feel a rant coming on.

In case you’ve been living in a cave in the remote mountains of Outer Mongolia, you will know that the Olympics is on.  I have zero interest.  I never have, and unless I am invited to join Prince William and Prince Harry for a day, the likelihood of me ever being interested is nil.

The newspapers (online) have been full of X wins Gold/Silver/Bronze.  Thousands of words have been dedicated to celebrating the athletes accomplishments and their medal haul – or lack thereof in a few cases.  Totally news worthy and congratulations to everyone for being selected to represent your country.  It’s an amazing feat!

Naturally there is a flip side… Continue reading

Post Brexit Bullshit

Remember when there was a social media campaign with the hashtag #walkwithme (or something similar) after Muslims were being targeted after some or other terrorist atrocity that had nothing to do with them?  Well, I think we need to bring that back.

#walkwithme if you feel you’re being watched.

#walkwithme if you feel threatened or vulnerable.

#walkwithme if you think you are in danger.

#walkwithme if you are just afraid to be on your own.

Like every civilised person, I am very anti Continue reading

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.

ARE YOU ACTUALLY KIDDING????????????

The judge needs to be Continue reading
