Dear 2011, Hello! Are you excited for tonight? There’s less than 10 hours to go before you make your big entrance. What are you wearing? I’ve heard it’s going to be foggy in London so I’d go for something bright if I were you; something that makes a statement. Don’t do the Lady Gaga meat […]

Last night I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Sports Personality of the Year Awards on BBC presented by Sue Barker and Gary Lineker. There were several sportsmen and women up for the […]
Are your ready for the Strictly Come Dancing (http://www.bbc.co.uk/strictlycomedancing/ final? I haven’t been following the series closely but I’ll be glued tomorrow. Dancing is such a fabulous skill to have. I’m useless – I have two left feet and tend to ‘lead’ when I shouldn’t. I am Anne Widdecombe, basically. My favourite old […]
Being funny is a talent; being able to write funny things is a gift. Very few books make me laugh out loud but here is my Funny Writers Hall of Fame: I’ll start with Oscar Wilde and PG Wodehouse, geniuses both, but of the more modern era we have: Beverly Clearly http://www.beverlycleary.com/ for her Ramona Quimby series Morris […]
