Sundays, the best day of the week

When I’m not in the gym first thing Sunday morning, bench pressing 20 kilos (!!), I like to relax with a nice, lllooooong lie-in.  So long sometimes it can even last until Monday when I have to go to work.  So technically, this ceases to be a lie-in and is indeed, ‘bedridden’. Sunday lie-ins are marvellous and one […]

French women DO get fat – hurrah!! (it says so in the Guardian)

So, you know the image of the perfect French woman, all chic and slim and cool and chic and slim and cool and stuff…… multiply it by infinity and add a dash of dismissive arrogance, then you’ve got my pre-conceived idea of a typical Parisienne.  And so the thought of going to a city full of these Stepford standard automatons […]

Oh, and my dealer text

with an offer I couldn’t refuse.  First she tried to tempt me with a photo, then she gave me the hard sell, you know, the usual, ‘look, they’re not your average product…… etc. etc.’ So I said, ‘oh go on then’ and I’m meeting her later to collect. and the goodies in question?  Pork pies! […]

How I left the poor Frenchie lost in the City of Evil

OR: When I politely declined the offer of a bed for the night and went home……. Male – check Own teeth (all visible, not brown) – check Hair – check Sexy accent – check and check again! Handsome – check Funny with a capital ‘F’ for Funny AND French – check Second date in Paris?  […]
