A lot can happen in 28 days. If there is one thing I’ve learned from last year, is that sitting around and just wishing for change results in exactly zero change. Why is David Bowie the cover star for this post? Because he was the master of change. Turn and face the strange indeed. Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes … Continue reading 28 Days Later…
I’ll come clean and say outright that I was never a fan of Katherine Heigl. I never got into Grey’s Anatomy, and I had read rather a lot about how she was ‘difficult to work with’. Translation: Too good for TV when she left the show and decided that she had a face made for … Continue reading Firefly Lane
Not one person here reading this now (is anyone out there?) would be unfamiliar with the Wizard of Oz. Or indeed it’s headline musical number ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’. That most wistful of songs which conveys a deep yearning to be somewhere that we just can’t be. This post, however, is not about that rainbow … Continue reading Somewhere, over that rainbow
I’ve been absent for a little while, I admit it. I’ve felt some guilt at not posting anything new in 2021. To be fair there has been a fair amount going on in the world. We had the most abnormal Christmas I’ve ever experienced, and that’s saying something considering I haven’t been home to Canada … Continue reading About Face
I grew up watching tennis because of my parents as a really young kid, but I didn’t really follow it. I remember the grass courts of Wimbledon, the reddish-orange clay of Roland Garros, the overwhelming noise of the US Open. But I never remembered watching the Canadian Open on TV. Things changed substantially when my … Continue reading 15-Love: Tales From the Towel Room
It isn’t just me. Actually, all our eyes are streaming. I don’t mean tears of joy, sadness, terror, or allergies either. I’m talking about how if you weren’t on the media streaming bandwagon before COVID, you almost certainly are now. With so much new content now appearing on streaming services exclusively, and really brilliant content … Continue reading Help! My Eyes are Streaming!
The best decision I ever made as an adult, besides marrying my husband, was to follow my heart and get back to horse riding. I don’t really remember a time in my life when I didn’t love horses. It has always been an all-encompassing, absolute, and deeply satisfying kind of passion in my life. There … Continue reading Back in the Saddle
Where do I begin with this post? I’m just an average and still amateur blogger. I’m an educated person, with smart, intelligent friends. I enjoy learning about new subjects and believe we never stop learning. I also enjoy staying up to date with current affairs. Keeping up with the news. Knowledge makes us grow and … Continue reading ‘Conspiralling’ Out of Control
Was I prepared for this moment in time, when I realised Ozzy Osbourne absolutely nailed it? As in, he eloquently summarised a significant proportion of the worlds thoughts and feelings in 2020, but with great prescience way back in 1987? Hell no. But when I said to myself last Saturday, “OMG, Biden’s won. I feel … Continue reading We’re Finally Off ‘The Crazy Train’
I’ve never seen myself onscreen before. Like, not my pre-teenaged version of myself. Sure, there are loads of nerdy types in lots of films, but they usually over-egg it. And yet this actually happened to me a few months ago. I stumbled upon Pen15 when Sky Atlantic started promoting a new show from the US … Continue reading (Pre)Teenage Kicks
