Have fun looking around 🙂

more mad marvy confessions of Georgia Nicolson. By Louise Rennison

As expected this is another completely and utterly funny book in the Georgia Nicolson series with many laugh out loud moments and I loved it. I actually wonder if adults love these books even more than the teenagers they are intended for, just because it really makes us feel young again and reminds us how lovely and carefree life was, way back when…

Anyway, if you pick up this book, (and I think I said this in my review of Dancing in my Nuddy Pants) you must persevere past the first 20 pages or so because in all this book’s fabulosity, I was full of exhaustiosity (that one was on the first page!) with all the vair vair annoying osities and other variations of words that seemed to be in every sentence. I was beginning to think that it would be full of miraculosity (p9) if I got past page 19. “Ointmosity” (p10) for god’s sake!!

It felt far too forced at the beginning and if it hadn’t been for the fact that I knew I enjoyed a previous Rennison book, I would have given up and not bothered with it. So you are warned, but she does calm down a lot and the osities start to go in places where they seem natural. And it’s just so worth reading, because it’s such a happy, funny book. Don’t expect a plot though; as usual!

A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….
Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
Monthly Memoir – July
July 31, 2016
The whole of July was pretty much about our holiday in America. The few days before we left were spent frantically researching where we were going, and the few days after were spent unpacking, washing, and trying to get over jet-lag. We had three weeks away and began in New York, getting the AmTrack train down to Washington DC, picking up a hire car and driving to New Orleans via Nashville and Memphis, and then following the coast East to Orlando to spend the last couple of days in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. Wow! I’m exhausted just remembering it! We covered ten states of America (New York, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.) Phew! ….
