I’m on to you!

I’ve a suspicion that for a few months now I’m being “subtweeted” by a guy on Twitter. For those of you that don’t know, subtweeting is where you post a status that is targeted at someone without actually mentioning (or tagging) them. It’s often because you want to mock them [Read more…]

Exams

I’ve never been too good with taking written exams. Practical exam, where I have to show someone something, I can ace but if I have to sit and write stuff out I struggle. Due to “the rona” I’m now going to be taking exams online. Still timed, still written, but [Read more…]

Unwatched!

A little while ago Davy Quinlivan did a Facebook post about films he hadn’t seen. Reading the list if I’d been wearing pearls I’d have clutched them and would probably still be holding them now! So this is the list and next to each one Davy I’ve given you a [Read more…]

Gains and gains.

Today I’ve been more than just a member at Weight Watchers. I’ve been “clerking” – basically taking the money and selling the goodies then sending the members off to get weighed. It’s really interesting and I’ve learned sooooooo much by being at six meeting so far with another three coming [Read more…]

Parallel Universes

I’ve been ill for the last five days. Proper sick like. Fluids coming out of every hole but you don’t need to know about that. During my sick time I’ve been spending a lot of time alone (on the toilet) and either reading or thinking, while not screaming out in [Read more…]

Brad got an unexpected day off today so after sorting a few bits out with the new car we headed off to Galway city. I wanted to get a tee-shirt for Monday night, do some shopping and grab some lunch with my devilishly handsome husbear. During lunch – a seafood [Read more…]

Diary

Can’t do it. Can’t do without my handwritten diary. I tried but I just can’t. I tried to do everything in iCal but I need my handwritten diary too. I’m not sorry! Stupidly though, I now update both!

Opinions

I’m one of those people who love hearing other peoples opinions. I don’t always agree with them but I love hearing them. And yes, sometimes when I hear them I start judging the person. Anyone who claims “I don’t judge others” is lying. It’s human nature. How you vocalise your [Read more…]

Twelve Reasons Why I Love Her

A few years ago, more than I can be bothered to count, I decided I’d had quite an interesting life and would write my autobiography. I wrote quite a few chapters and kept going back and editing them and padding them out a bit. I took out some stories, added [Read more…]

Other than the odd tweet or status update on Facebook I’ve been holding off saying anything about the controversy surrounding Christmas songs such as Fairytale of New York and Baby, it’s Cold Outside. Now though, after a couple of things I’ve read this morning, I feel I need to comment [Read more…]
