Shameful demise of a hypocrite

A public fall from grace is never a pretty sight... whoever it is who’s tumbling painfully from their pedestal.

Spring is in the air so tuck into a pie and enjoy both

What was it we kids used to have to say for luck on March 1? Rabbits? March hares? Bunny jumps? Thank goodness freezing February’s finally out of the way?

Focus on the little things

andy rosecentral Buzz words are good – or at least they used to be. They’re cool. They make you sound clever, of the here and now, totally switched on... to mention but a few current buzzes.

I’m happy for Conrad Atkinson to be my own guilty pleasure

Guilty pleasures. We all have them. Some more than others – I more than most. Ludicrously expensive handbags, crippling shoes – the higher the better – ice cream, sticky toffee pudding, oven chips... though not together on the same plate.

King Richard is ours, so bring him home now

Home is always where the heart is. Not where the horse falls nor in the council car park under which the bones lie. It’s the place that makes the soul sing.
