The Boy Who Would Be King

‘Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has given birth to a healthy baby boy’, proclaims my iPod, unbidden, first thing on a Tuesday morning. Of course, I already knew about that because, to be in England, one would have to have been living in a cave not to have heard the news. […]

How to Get Through Your QLC (Quarter Life Crisis)

I can’t get away from it. Twenty seven years of age, presently living with the fiance’s parents in their (thankfully large) vicarage home, unmarried, no children, no house, and a temp job that is certainly feeling like my long-term job at the minute. It is quite clear, given the fact […]

Desensitized to the madness

Wednesday saw the report, photos and videos of two extreme Islamists who hacked a soldier wearing a Help For Heroes shirt to death in the town of Woolwich, Greater London – a mere few miles from where I live with my other half. The images were so shocking and horrible […]

Oblivion – Reviewed

I’m fully aware that I am standing in a very great danger zone at the moment. If I keep going to see his movies, I may well become a Tom Cruise fan. He rocked as the Vampire Lestat. He was the perfect lead for Minority Report and the Mission Impossible […]

The New Face Of Britain

The other half and I went down to Greenwich the other day for a little outing marking our fourteen-month anniversary (yes, alright, we know we’re soppy).  Greenwich, for us as for a lot of the people of Britain, is one of the places that, even though the North-of-the-Riverers never venture […]
