A Comedian’s August

A Comedian’s August

I haven’t done one of these for a while because to be honest it was a fad and like most fads I get bored with them and there are 3 yoga mats at my mum’s house that prove it. Why did I buy three I hear you wonder? Well I thought if I laid out 3 and only used 1…

Euro 2016 is here!

How to make the most of Euro 2016. As a football fan there is nothing quite like the anticipation you feel at the start of a major tournament. You’ve pinned up your wall planner, studied each squad thoroughly and inevitably picked out a 40-1 outsider in the office sweepstake. But what can you do to further enhance this already magical…

Heartbreak

Heartbreak

This month’s blog was inspired by the recent story of the Dad who won a court case after taking his daughter on holiday during term time.

“Black Friday”

The festive season is fast approaching and people are bracing themselves for a month of excessive spending and financial turmoil. The television adverts have already started and nothing says Christmas like the sight of a convoy of articulated lorries ploughing through a small village in the middle of the night. It begs the question what is Christmas all about? And…

Good Morning Britain

Good Morning Britain

Good Morning Britain Is this the most ironically titled breakfast show in the history of television? Every morning I wake at 6am, sit down on the sofa with a cup of tea and some wheat based cereal and switch on the TV. I like to be eased into the new day, like a child starting primary school, deep down I…

The New Punk Manifesto

The New Punk Manifesto

Welcome to a new era, a movement about to storm the nation. It’s easy to get swept up in fads and fashion, I’ve been there, done that, bought the Evanescence T-Shirt. But this is a new concept that I believe can bring about real social change. Welcome aboard. Your Leader: I would consider myself to be pretty punk, in fact…
