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...)

At the risk of starting to sound like a grumpy old man, this is not my favourite time of the year.

This month in the Simms household, the children - aged 5 and 8 - have been celebrating the career of pop icon Madonna as she turns 50. While I have some misgivings about under-tens dancing round their bedrooms belting out 'Like a Virgin' at the top of their tuneless voices, I have to say that four (more...)

As someone with a generally inquisitive mind, I work hard to unravel the mysteries of the universe, for no reason other than my own satisfaction.

I don't know what it is boys, but there's something about an attractive, successful older man that set's a girl's heart a-racing.
