Blog Something Funny!

  In honour of Comic Relief, Him Up North has requested that we all blog something funny, and I thought this was a perfect opportunity to share a joke which is something of a favourite among my family.   A man goes to a Psychiatrist dressed entirely in cling-film. The Psychiatrist says “I can clearly see your nuts”.   BA-DUM-TSH! Happy Red Nose Day, one and all!

30 Day Song Challenge – Day Eighteen

Your Romantic Song One day, around Christmas 2006, Husband and I had my little sister over to stay. He’d been out with his friends and Emily and I had stayed in, watching films and having some sister-time. He got home quite late and had brought a Chinese in for us and we sat around, eating our takeaway, listening to random songs on the computer. At one point, this song came on, and Husband turned to …

Viridian Ultimate Beauty Complex

When the folk at Viridian heard about my ‘All About ME’ series, they thought Mum’s the Word would be the perfect place for a road test of one of their products, and sent me the Ultimate Beauty Complex. At first, I was a little worried, as I have various health conditions, the main ones being diabetes and an underactive thyroid, which mean that I already take lots of medication, and have to be careful about …

30 Day Song Challenge – Day Seventeen

A Song That You Hear Often on the Radio That You Love Husband and I don’t listen to the radio very often, simply because we don’t have a decent radio. We’ve been promising ourselves a DAB for years, but never get around to buying one. When we do listen to the radio, it’s generally on the internet, and we end up listening to Magic at about 11pm! This is a song that we hear almost …

They’re Baaaack!

When my family and I moved into our current house, in April of last year, we were pleasantly surprised by all of the wildlife in the back garden. At the time, the house next door was empty and a family of foxes has taken refuge in the mass of tangled bushes at the end of their garden, and if you looked over the fence at the right time of day, you’d catch them laying on …

30 Day Song Challenge – Day Fourteen

A Song That No One Would Expect You to Love I’ve been fairly vocal in the past about my criticism of The Beatles. I hate the way that die-hard Beatles fans think that there was no music before they formed, and has been no music since that wasn’t directly inspired by them. It’s naive and narrow minded to think that way, but yes, I will admit, the Beatles are an amazing band, and as I’ve …

30 Day Song Challenge – Day Thirteen

A Song That’s a Guilty Pleasure As much as I like to pretend I’m only into well-respected, credible bands, I have to admit I love a Diva. Not the behaviour as such (or the crack habit, a la Whitney, circa 2002), but the big hair, big voices and sparkly dresses. Those who know me in real life will know that I once performed ‘My Heart Will Go On’ in a school show, wearing a blue …
