Goodbye. Thanks for reading.

I have been putting off writing this entry because it’s going to be the last.


I don’t really want to end on a downer, but there was only ever going to be one way to close this blog: my cat dying. Just before Christmas, Latifa had a stroke and I had to make the difficult decision to have her put to sleep. I won’t attempt to put into words how devastated I was to lose my princess who had bought me so much joy for three years, but I do take some s...

Recently, a different ‘pet’ has been vying for my attention. I am the proud owner of a 3DS and have a copy of their virtual pet game Nintendogs + Cats. On said game, I have a dog called Frobisher and a cat called, well, Latifa.


Yes, I am a ridiculous person.

Yes, I did own a Tamagotchi when I was a kid.


Anyway, I now write for gaming website Egg Says Whut?, and have written a revi...

Last month, my brother and Laura (his girlfriend) came back from Sierra Leone (where they live), and my parents wanted to do something special as a family. My parents came up with the marvellous idea of going to the Monkey Forest followed by a visit to the

Wouldn't it be awesome if they did 'Latifa Black Olives' too?!

Project Complete!

This is what happens when I'm home alone (well, home with 'Tifa, obviously) on a Friday night:

I think you'll find that that is an accurate depiction of the diva in pencil sharpener form. I went through 3/4 of a pot of Tipp Ex...

My friend Philip has given me this as a gift:



This 'delightful' novelty item is an elaborate pencil sharpener that, when you put your pencil into its bum to sharpen it, meows. Classy.


As wonderful as this item is, it clearly needs a makeover. It requires me, a bottle of tipp ex, and a cat that will inevitably hate being ...

An Aside

Posted on March 29, 2011 at 7:37 PM Comments comments (0)

So here’s the thing…


This entry is about how awesome and fulfilled my life is and how I struggle to find time to write entries on both of my blogs. I’m hoping that this entry doesn’t make me look like a whingey old queen. I’m also hoping that it doesn’t come across as an unreliable person making excuses. And finally, I hope it doesn’t come across as boasty and self-righteous either! That’s certainly not the intention, but it i...

Still Got It!

Last weekend, my friend Philip came round my place for a gossip and to drink too much wine. Philip is a friend that I have had for a very long time now and an absolute treasure; he is also unashamedly the campest man in the world. Every time I spend time with Phil, he comes out with a string of gems that make me howl with laughter. So much so, in fact, that I have always joked that I would write a sitcom about him one day.


One of Phil’s gems last weekend was:

She Really Likes Me!

My aforementioned houseguest Andy left today, and I was actually really quite sad was about it. Considering what an isolationist I can often be and that I have lived on my own for the best part of a decade (except for an ill-advised 6 months with an ex-boyfriend that was sort of imposed upon me rather than by choice – long story!), this actually surprised me. Howeve...

Don't Mess With The Lady Of The House!

My friend Andy is crashing at mine for a fortnight or so, and I warned him about ‘Tifa’s ways and that while he’s staying, it’s very much her home that he is the guest in, not mine. Some friends tend to doubt some of the stuff that I’ve posted on this blog over the years, suggesting that I exaggerate ‘Tifa’s temperament for cheap laughs or that she ‘really isn’t as much of a diva as you portray’. I promise that I don’t.
