  1. Is This Art?

    Is This Art? I was reading a story in the news this week about Blenheim Palace installing an 18 Carat gold, fully functioning toilet which visitors will be able to use this summer.  The picture of it is below and I’m sure you are all thinking the same thing as me.

  2. We've run out of toilet rolls

    We've run out of toilet rolls “Daaaaaddddd,  we’ve run out of toilet roll”.   This piece of information is regularly belted out by my children, usually on a Sunday morning at around 6.30am.  If I don’t responded within half a second, the cry for help will be repeated at regular intervals, at increasing decibels until I arrive on horseback with a shiny new Luxury 3 Read more...

I assumed it was something that Amazon had introduced to turn their profits from Billions to Zillions and was another brilliant piece of marketing that made us feel that if we didn’t jump online on Black Friday and snap up a bargain, then we were missing out to the smarter, more Read more...
  8. Is it an apocalypse…

    The SUN

    Like most of you, I’ve spent more holidays in this country than I have abroad. Like most of you, most of these holidays have been wet and windy with chilly temperatures.

    Who Needs Love Island…

    VAR. 3 letters that meant little to most of us a few months ago, but since the World Cup everyone know that it stands for Video Assistant Referee.

    Is it the taking part that counts...
