We were all learners once. So, a word of warning. The next time someone beeps, I might not be so polite. I might decide it's at that exact moment I decide to practice my emergency stop. Don't be that impatient car behind me.
London. Love it or hate it, there's no denying that it's a magnet which draws people towards it whether they're tourists, students, jobseekers or immigrants looking for a better way of life.
My children and I write Family Travel Times, which is a blog all about the places we go and what we do. We hope that other families will enjoy reading about our adventures and perhaps also be inspired! The children, who are aged 12 and 8, write their own posts, saying what they really think. Here is one by Robert, my eight year old.
Having received a card from the middle-aged couple a few doors along, next week we're having a little soiree for the neighbours - all except Dead Bob Willis and his invisible wife, obviously. As I drive home from Homebase with a boot full of planks singing along to "Rebel Rebel" it somehow feels Christmassy and normal.
Contrary to society's beliefs, as a dominatrix I have never been in any physical or mental danger. Only at the mercy of everyday life, people's prejudices and annoying habits...
Uniquely set in real time, the show initially ran from 2001-2010 but is currently in production (in London in fact), for a new miniseries entitled 24: Live Another Day, airing in May this year.
From the early Huguenot crafts people to the celluloid film industry to today's global successes in digital effects, fashion, music and theatre, Soho remains an extraordinary place to live and work. If you're at all creative, then it's probably the best place to work in the world.
The Sweet Potato fries were some of the best I've ever had and were the perfect combination of crispy coating and fluffy potato sprinkled in Paprika. We thought we should try the Cassava Chips since they are 'the Brasilian French Frie' but they were a little bland for both our tastes and we didn't really enjoy them.
London has so much to offer, you can party at night, browse markets in the day and everything in between. It wasn't until February last year when my boyfriend fulfilled a childhood dream of mine by taking me to New York that I realised how utterly in love I was with this city.
It's time we reassess what we want out of a relationship. Is a bling ring and a collage of couple photos above the fire place? Or is it warmth, understanding, and a Netflix subscription? Snuggles on the sofa and an Orange Is The New Black binge for me any day, thanks.
There was a moment in the 90s that Cork Street was dead, Jay Jopling opened a gallery in Hoxton Square and many of the best galleries were in Vyner St...
American potato chips ("crisps") are pathetic when compared with the flavours England has. Sea salt and cider vinegar, shrimp ("prawn") cocktail, sweet chili, steak and onion, smoky bacon, roast chicken. These are not speciality flavours but standard chips you can find almost anywhere. Also, chocolate is richer and tastier in this country. Sorry Hershey's, it's true.
It's experimentation that is the key to St Piece gaining so much attention in just over a year, being a varied group of artists, graphic designers and architects; they're a broad church so to speak, unlike similar studios.
If performing on a West-End stage for the first time wasn't daunting enough, I had to perform to a sold-out auditorium of industry figures, theatre critics and honorary guests...
She opened her mouth as if to speak then looked back at her book, a compendium of 15th Century Dutch art. We both had our headphones in. I took mine out and listened a while to the train chatter.
Sean's spots are healing, Emma making friends; Lynda is working in London today. The house is "coming together" (as in, it's no longer falling apart). The roof of the summerhouse is secured with tarp and screws. There's nothing useful I can do alone. Nothing for it: I must write.
