Yes, boys, we know you hate to shop, but it is one of a girl's greatest loves. Which is why some girlfriends and I all headed up to London for a bit of pre-Christmas window shopping, just for a few ideas to add to our lists for Santa. A leisurely stroll along Oxford Street eventually brought us to (more...)

Staying with some friends over the weekend, I was treated to the full-on X-Factor experience. I may be showing my age here, but I can't say it was entirely pleasurable, hearing a host of Elton John songs put to the sword by a succession of artists of questionable ability. In fact it was painful in (more...)

It's funny how your perceptions of a company can be quite different from the reality of that company, often because of the way companies market themselves. Over the years I can think of a couple of manufacturers I've had pegged as small-scale regional players, only to find on visiting those (more...)

The Simms family has just returned from its annual mini-holiday to the Isle of Wight, and most pleasurable it was, too. And when I say family, I'm talking about 16 of us, with ages ranging from 6 months to 85, all living for the week under one (thankfully large) rented roof. We've been doing this (more...)

Arriving home from a short holiday over the summer, I found a note had been slapped on my green-lidded dustbin, reminding me not to put plastic in with my garden waste. As far as I'm aware, it's not something I've ever done, but while I was away my mother (bless her) had volunteered to pop round and (more...)

The stone age did not end for a lack of stone, and the oil age will end long before the world runs out of oil. So said Sheikh Zaki Yamani, a Saudi Arabian who served as his country's oil minister 30-odd years ago. What he meant by that, I believe, was that you don't wait until a resource runs out (more...)

Right, boys, it's time to put social and sexual stereotypes aside, because today we're going to be discussing housework. There's a saying that love starts when you sink into his arms, and ends with your arms in his sink. And after almost 50 years of 'women's lib' and at least four decades since the (more...)

Right, important questions first: what do we make of the new Doctor? (Not 'the new Doctor Who', you'll notice - I don't want to sound pedantic, but Doctor Who is the title of the series, not the character. It's a hanging question, a standing joke, but not a name.) There's no doubt that David Tennant (more...)

If there's one thing better than a wild night out, then it's a quiet night in. In fact boys, give us a Chardonnay, a romcom and bar of velvety smooth chocolate, and quite often we girls can happily get by without you. Perhaps a woman can't live on chocolate alone, but she can have a darned good try. (more...)

When a friend walked into a party wearing a top with a loud and pronounced zigzag pattern, I suggested that perhaps she needed to adjust her horizontal hold. Now, I'm not saying this was a tumbleweed-across-the-room moment exactly, but several people did look at me very blankly. Clearly you need to (more...)
