There are worse things in life to be addicted to than your job - at least my drug of choice is legal!

But it's Only a T-shirt...or is it?

If you can bring me one victim of domestic violence who sees the humour in this t-shirt then maybe I will reconsider my view that it's disgusting. That fashion may be controversial at times but it should not glamourise rape or domestic violence. Nothing should.

The "Should" Storm

We're selfish, independent, hooked on instant-gratification, either completely overwhelmed with choices or backed into a corner with nowhere to turn and on top of that we're ruining the planet, grotesquely unhealthy and surrounded by people who think The X-Factor is quality entertainment.

Happy Yorkshire Day

Today is Yorkshire Day and as a Yorkshire woman I am proud to stand up and tell you why being from Yorkshire is an indication of greatness. It's God's own country for a reason.

How to Be a Woman - Book Review

I often think to myself that it would have been so much simpler to have lived in a time when women didn't have as many choices as they do now. "Spoiled for choice" is not a phrase to take lightly.
