A thousand thanks to Welshcakes Limoncello, learner drivers and an end to the summer hols

A thousand thanks to Welshcakes Limoncello for her precise proof reading of the final draft of my research assignment on how MPs write their blogs and engage in two-way communication. I thoroughly enjoyed writing it and finally posted it off today to my excellent course director Heather Yaxley, who writes a great PR blog, and has an expertise in the motoring industry. Which reminds me, please be...

The missing – Madeleine McCann

My thoughts are with the anguished family of Madeline McCann, a young child who should have been bouncing off to school today, full of the joys of life.  A desk, coat peg and locker have thoughtfully been set aside in the hope that one day she will join her classmates at Bishop Ellis Catholic Primary School in Thurmaston, Leicestershire . Madeleine has now been missing for 119...

Could Prescott’s resignation signal an autumn election?

Feel free to pay tribute tribute here to John Prescott who has announced he will not be standing at the next general election. He provided us with many hilarious headlines and politics would be dull without a few characters like him. He certainly had the gift of the gaffe. I wonder if Prezza’s announcement is timed so a replacement can be selected in time for an autumn election. We are now...

My husband and Scarlett Johansson

If my husband is late home for dinner this evening, should I be worried by the fact that he is spending the day with the stunning Scarlett Johansson? They are filming together in the hallowed, medieval grounds of Ely, butI doubt Stephen’s name will appear in lights, even though it is his second role as a courtier in a historical blockbuster. I asked if I could be an extra too for the...

Look out for me with the WAGS tomorrow

I shall be sitting with my family in a box at Manchester United tomorrow (hopefully the sun will be shining), thanks to my husband who won the VIP tickets as a prize at a corporate dinner. We have a meal and drinks included, as well as on-site car parking, pretty much five star treatment. The reds will be playing the blues from Tottenham Hotspur and as I have one son who...

Can you recommend a hotel in Euston Road?

My son David has been booked in at University College Hospital, London for a biopsy on 10 September. There are no facilities for me to sleep over, neither do they provide hostel accommodation, they recommended I find a local b & b or hotel. They suggested I look one up on Google, but I thought I would ask here too. I also need car parking facilities, I have to drive...

How could the unthinkable have happened to Rhys?

The whole nation can only feel shock and revulsion at the shooting of 11-year-old Rhys Jones who had spent the evening playing football and, according to an eye witness, was gunned down by  a youth with his face covered by a hood, who rode past on a BMX bicycle. How could we have sunk to such an all-time low and produced young people who behave with such...

Lord Philips and his citizen’s arrest of 10-year-old lad

Suffolk Lib Dem peer Lord Andrew Philips made a citizen’s arrest on a boy believed to be 10-years-old yesterday for allegedly throwing his bike to the ground. While I’m also fed up up with the lack of respect and yobbish anti social behaviour of some young people (a minority of our population because we have so many we should be proud of too), I do think Lord...

Did Iain join the Swiss strippers?

I wonder if this is the real reason Iain headed for Switzerland at the weekend. No need to be bashful Iain, after all, it is art. I’m not sure I can pick you out though. Did you all have goose pimples? It is an amusing coincidence, and one I hope Iain will see the funny side of too ….

Albania appoints glamorous Roma to head its recycling collection

Unlike the BBC reporter, I was not surprised to learn that a woman is spearheading Albania’s only household recycling programme. The fact that she is a Roma will be a bonus – she will understand only too well that waste is a resource which has value and can be reused; it is not rubbish. Miranda Fejzo, described beguilingly as “all twinkling eyes and long, luxurious...
