The Lion and the Dentist

Poor, beautiful Cecil. I am heartbroken that this magnificent creature was hunted, tortured, skinned and beheaded.  It’s just absolutely beyond the pale.  I don’t believe hunting is a sport.  How is it a sport when only one party knows what’s happening?  It’s dreadful. This stunning lion was shot with an arrow.  It did NOT kill him outright.  He was tracked for the…

Typing & Eating

Because that’s what you do when you have one of the best lunches you’ve ever had from a “sandwich bar” type place! Thank you to Pret to Go from your very new but very happy customer!! This morning was not a good morning for me on the getting ready front.  In fact, it’s a miracle…

Kicking Healthy

I went to see a nutritionist the other day as part of my ongoing treatment for my stomach issues.  Where I have been so ill for the last few months, I am missing out on valuable nutrients or something.  There was a big explanation from my doctor about it.  I switched off after a while….

Pizza Cravings

Me, yesterday….   The result…   Freedom Pizza rocks! 

Posh Burgers

You know how I wrote a love note to Claw the other day, and said how I don’t like going out on Thursday nights?  Yeah, well, Saturday nights are the same.  I generally am shattered from Friday’s activities, and sorting myself out for the week ahead. (Writing this blog is actually highlighting that I need…

Inappropriate?

On Thursday night, somewhere after the third glass of bubbles, I had to say goodbye to one of my nails.  This may not be a big deal to many of you, but it is HUGE to me.  I have just spent three months growing them out after a disastrous manicure, and they were back to…

Pork Ribs and Margaritas

I am not someone who goes out all the time.  I like to stay home and cook or bake, and watch tv.  That is how I relax and and I am very happy with being a borderline hermit! Thursday nights are especially ‘indoorsy’ for me.  I made it through the week.  I want to enjoy…

McDelivery

You know you live in one of the most civilised countries in the world, when you can have your Maccas delivered and pay for it online with your credit card.  Thank you Dubai!!    

IQ Surprise

Is anyone else addicted to Facebook quizzes?! Today I discovered my hippy name would be Willow.  I discovered that the era that I am best suited to is the 20’s.  I discovered my “Feminine Archetype” is a fashionista.  And finally, I discovered my IQ is 122. I can live with being a Willow, and actually…

Spaghetti Squash, Part 2

Yes… this is going to turn into a 4 part series!  I can only eat half a squash in one dinner! So, last night I had half a spaghetti squash to play with, and didn’t want to do the same recipe again.  That would be boring and I am not boring – in the kitchen anyway!…
