Marvel’s Stan Lee…RIP

I have spent the best of my life being entertained by this mans imagination. I was never a fan of comics, but the films made from Stan’s creations, have given me hours of entertainment.

Christmas jólabókaflóð?

Well, that’s a word to get your tongue around, huh? I had never heard of it until recently, when a friend told me all about this beautiful Icelandic tradition, that she insisted that we do this year.

But, I challenged myself to giveContinue reading “The Doll Maker”

Coming OUT!

So, October is Coming Out Month! In the USA… In the UK it’s not until February. But it got me thinking about my own coming out. I’d love to say it was exciting. A large banner from an aeroplane as it glided above my parent’s house during a family BBQ! An entire page ad inContinue reading “Coming OUT!”

Lazy days and sunny rays

So, as I lie in my bed; laptop actually on my lap, gazing out of the window at the clouds drifting in across the bay of Naples, I realise that I am ready to come home. It’s been lovely. I have spent time relaxing, sunning myself and eating far too much. I even managed toContinue reading “Lazy days and sunny rays”
