The strange thing was my neighbour couldn't wait to come round to tell me and so I spent a few minutes in panic as she couldn't...

Does anyone know how they will vote on Thursday? I have never ever been so undecided in all my life and that's saying something as a female. I truly can't help but wonder why a young person would vote conservative? I can see an older cynical person thinking that they want to look after themselves bu...

At least most of us seem to share the same dislike of the game stealers who turn out only when England are still around. My own pet hate? All these women taking time off work so they can go out in their tight little England shirts and jump around in the pub going "come on Lampsy!" or "oh I wonder w...

I've just cringed through the lunchtime news featuring Gordon Brown. For every person who has ever slagged someone off and then had that horrible, sinking realisation that the person has overheard. Yowchie.

I haven't ever seen The Goonies or Gremlins - which is strange according to the rest of the planet.

I've not read any Lord or the Rings or seen the films. I don't understand things in the future.

In the old days I would have said St Trinians, but now that I have kids it's probably not a good idea.
