Savvy Letter – Dear Phantom

Dear Phantom Puncture Pr***, Perhaps, who knows, you are a very nice phantom? Personally, though, Phantom Puncture Pr***, I’m not so keen on your preferred pastime. It really isn’t so very pleasant to sneak around in the shadows, outside my cave home, with your hammer and nails, poking holes in the tyres of my car….

Savvy Style – Raining Flowers

Today is the day! The aforementioned Unbranded dress from Ebay arrived about three days ago and I still haven’t opened i! Not that I wasn’t excited about another opportunity to upstage Princess Beatrice, with one of my bargain lookalikes – far from it! I was saving it for a rainy day! And, today, without a…

29: A Hat Day

What better thing to do on a windy and woefully wet Saturday, than a spot of hat modelling? One’s cluttered cloakroom shelf makes the ideal backdrop for the shoot! And, yes, I know it’s obvious that I’m doing my best to promote Suffolk Punch Comedy Club gigs, by wearing such a fabulous t-shirt!* But, I…

10: Boss-Free

Another day over. Am I wishing my life away? No, I’m counting down the days until my life starts again. Life minus the boss. Perhaps I shouldn’t knock it; the boss pays, and I can’t say that my inbox is full of demands for my services as a savvy freelance writer. Is it the savvy…

Getting Out of the Day Job 6: Pinch Me

I’m still pinching myself (not Hinching myself). Did I really sign up for voluntary redundancy last week? And does that really mean I’ll be ‘unemployed’?…

2: MOT

  The Dacia’s almost made it. It’s stalled and choked its way through another year, and is now  being put through its paces by Chilton’s most-trusty Treadfirst engineer. I’m hoping it will pass. If my Dacia can pass muster, then I can make it too. For although I’ve just signed on the dotted line for…
