Oh where oh where has my notepad gone?

4 Jan

As I sung and danced my way around the house yesterday to a mixture of Sugababes, Girls aloud, Green Day and Blink 182 it occurred to me that I may be going slightly insane.

This was confirmed to me earlier today when I left work mid morning in a quest to find my ‘never leave my side’ notebook. Having tipped out all the drawers in my house and practically emptying the entire wardrobe I returned to work, empty-handed.

Two minutes later I found the pickle hiding under a sheet of paper on my desk.

Happy New Year.

Only three items for the desert island! You must be joking.

8 Jun

So, today is list day. A list of books, bands and films that I can return to . It is obvious from my list that having only three items to choose for the desert island could be a problem. (and this is only books/films and music – where would chocolate and my Clarins cream fit in?).

Let’s begin.


10 Things I Hate About You

Legally Blonde

Jerry Maguire

My Best Friends Wedding

The Little Mermaid


Love Actually

About a Boy

Musicians (Oh I hear you – ‘they’re not musicians’ – yes they are!)

Green Day

Blink 182

My Chemical Romance

No Doubt


Girls Aloud

The Killers


The Girl Next Door – Blink 182

Whatsername – Green Day

Mr Brightside – The Killers

Ashes – Embrace

Sweet Disposition – The Temper Trap

My Velocity – Maximo Park

Books from Boxes – Maximo Park

Little Lion Man – Mumford & Sons


The Lovely Bones – Alice Sebold

PS I love You – Cecelia Ahern


John Grisham

Mary Higgens- Clarke

Ian Rankin

Jilly Cooper

(This list is off the top of my head and I have only allowed myself 24 hrs to consider if there is anything missing. I don’t think so, but you can guarantee when I hit publish all sorts of tracks/books will be coming to mind that I wish I had listed).

So, it is quite clear from my list that each area has its own flavour. Even my favourite books are not by my chosen authors. What about you? What would feature on your list?
