My week without Twitter

Well, I'm nearly there. I set myself the challenge of managing to last seven days without using Twitter, and I am nearly there. At midnight I shall log back in and see if anything's changed... if anyone remembers me. To be honest, I sort of cheated in a way. Back in January, I was completely... Continue Reading →

The Fear of Missing Out

Sometimes great things happen. House parties turn out to be far more awesome that you'd hoped they'd be, that cabaret show ends up being an absolute belter, and a few quiet drinks with friends somehow becomes the best night out you've had in a very long time.

Help needed

What Zoe Williams may think of as "pointless messing about" is, to me, about building new friendships and maintaining existing ones. If didn't exist, I would never have met a whole host...

Life drawing at 40 Winks

Last night I attended a life drawing evening at the beautiful 40 Winks with the fabulous ladies from Kink Ink. We were greeted at the door by Mr Carter in his top hat and, despite Rae's best efforts, were not put on the naughty list and so were allowed in. Just as well really, as... Continue Reading →

Here’s to friends!

I was chatting with a friend last week who was complimenting me on my burlesque performance work. I was preparing a less structured piece for an event he was running at the weekend and he was very excited about it, telling me that he'd loved my last two burlesque acts and that I should try...
