I just want to quickly apologise for both the lack of posts and for not having replied to and approved any comments for a while. Life has been very busy, with work, both kids health problems and actually going on holiday to have a break from it all I just haven’t had time.
I will get the comments approved and replied to asap and do an update post soon too.
I'd like to apologise to anyone I seem to have mortally offended with my apparent 'conventional attractiveness' and taste for middle eastern food.
In an article published today on 'Left Futures', I am apparently 'middle class' for 'not spending the afternoon drinking White Ace and copulating.' I am often advised not to respond to criticism - and I rarely do, people are entitled to their opinion.
We learn today that Barry George has been denied compensation for being falsely imprisoned for the murder of Jill Dando.
Despite being innocent of all charges against him, and having almost certainly been framed by the British Establishment, the Courts have refused to allow George the right to appeal against the decision in what his sister calls a "travesty of justice".
Yes, I know it was at the weekend but I didn’t have time to write a post then, but did you watch?
I did and I loved it!
I even got my kids to watch with me, it was the first time either of them had ever seen it, and they were pleasantly surprised that they enjoyed it too – if only to take the mickey out of how funny some of the acts were and try to grasp the political voting – which they were disgusted about which just made me laugh all the more…
So – did you guess the winner?
I thought it would be fun to share my facebook statuses that were written as I watched so you can see what I thought (along with the comments – anonomised for my friends’ benefit, but included as they make things even funnier! lol)

I know I haven’t been posting often but I thought it would be nice to have a bit of fun and share something that demonstrates my love of music…
For me at least music has always been the ‘friend’ you turn to when no-one else is around to share your joy, or pain, I’m sure many of you can relate to that sentiment?
Music can feed and inspire, offer comfort or relief, an opportunity to let go, express yourself, dance, sing and just connect or disconnect from the world as you choose. The right track at the right time can mean so much. Music was my first love, and it will be my last…
So, I came up with a little list of 20 musical ‘firsts’ to give you a taste of the musical influences that have spread through my life…
Hope you enjoy it and if you feel like it why not play along and do your own post with the list!? Continue reading →
