Happy Halloween!! I'd like to
introduce you to my very scary pumpkin. Last Sunday I went to
a Pumpkin Carving Party and this was the result. I thought I
would try and liven up the web site by adding a touch of
Meanwhile, I have added some pictures of Max & Rachel's
wedding, which I attended in July. The holiday pictures from
Sicily will doubtless be forthcoming in the next couple of
months as well, so please call again.
While it may have been ages since I
updated my site, at least I am consistent in my tardiness.
Anyway, you lucky people, I have been very diligent and put up
not one lot but *four* lots of photographs for your
delectation and delight. By the way, I am still maintaining
that I am unphotogenic as opposed to just homely...
haven't been up to much, with the exception of the events
detailed on the left, but I am getting a bright shiny new car
today, so expect me to bore you rigid with the details of that
December 9th 2001
Not much to report. Have put up some pictures of my sailing
trip to the Isle of Wight, for the delectation of my fellow crew, and for those
that didn't believe the rumour that Andrew Simpson's daughter was finally
learning to sail.
Last night saw Rebecca and I hosting our
naff christmas party. Unfortunately my camera seems to have
given up the ghost just before the party got into full swing,
so I shall have to hope the disposable ones come out. On the
other hand, judging from the state of us, it's probably just
as well there is no lasting evidence.
Finally, after 2 months, I have managed to get Corsica part
2 up on the site. Now by now I know a lot of you are thinking that I am just
plain lazy, but I will have you know that I have been one busy bee. Recently I
have been the hobby queen - after an introduction to golf while I was in
Boston, I caugt the golf bug and have been taking lessons at my local course. I
am still crap, but at least I can bluff my way through golf chat at the 19th
In addition, I have taken up Tae Kwon-Do. At the moment it means
that I spend most of my days hobbling around Tooting with either muscles
stretched to breaking point, or bruises where parts of my body came into
contact with parts of Rebecca's.
September 16th 2001
know that I am doing this arse about face, but I have put up part 1 of the
Corsica pictures before the Boston pictures. It's a lot easier to get motivated
when you have Rebecca nagging you to get things done.
Part 2 will be posted
later when I have got my film developed (digital camera had to be fixed), and
includes the eagerly awaited Legionnaires-in-very-little pictures.
from that, what news? My programme is being broadcast on October 4th at 7.30pm
on BBC2. I may well have to leave the country following that as the shame for
my family will be too great to bear.
August 5th 2001
It has taken me an absolute age to
get around to putting up the pictures from Helsinki... I apologise. It was the
best! Boston pictures to come soon.
Haven't been up to much since I
broke my foot, but I am almost back up to scratch.
Expect to see me at a
golf course near you soon....
April 28th 2001
I can't really remember what I have
been up to over the last few weeks. It vaguely involves the visiting of
parents, dodgy theme bars and performing my rendition of Can't Take My Eyes Off
Of You through the medium of dance. Something tells me that anyone there that
night will never be able to hear that song without thinking of me....
also been spending stoopid amounts of money on getting my tattoos removed. The
good news is that you can see the demise of Dick-head the Unicorn by clicking
on the link to the left periodically.
April 4th 2001
I won't go on and on about what I
have been up to, as it's all pretty ordinary lately.
I have finally managed
to get the skiing pictures up, and they can be found by clicking on the links
to the left. Sorry it has taken so long.
I still have to put up the pictures
from El's birthday, but those will follow soon I promise.
March 11th 2001
O'Reilly! What a week it's been! Firstly there was my birthday, consisting of
copious amounts of cachaca, followed by a skiing holiday in Serre Chevalier,
There I earned the name of 'The Alpine Assassin', due to my
uncanny ability to take out all those that dare ski near me. And there you all
were thinking that my natural athleticism would carry me through....
obligatory birthday pictures can be got to by clicking on the link to the left,
which is pretty impressive as I've only been back in the country a few hours.
Skiing photographs will be up in the next few days, probably in stages,
as there are far too many.
May 14th 2001
big news has to be the fact that me and a group of mates went to Top of the
Pops last week. For my foreign friends, TOTP is a pop program aired by the BBC
every week for about 40 years. I defy any British child to say that they have
never had a desire to go! Much fun was had...
The second biggest news was
that I think we had our first summery weekend. I even got a little sunburnt.
Could summer be here, or now that the cloud has returned, can we assume it is
June 14th 2001 I know, I
know. It has been over a month since I last updated my site, but so much has
been going on, I am sure you will forgive me....
I have been embroiled in
the making of a BBC documentary on online dating. The general premise is that
I, representing a normal, average girl, register at a web site and try and get
my claws into an unsuspecting male and get him to go out with me. This is all,
of course, captured on film, so that half a million people will be able to
watch me and mock me from the safety of their sofa.
So far, I have done the
filming of me and my life, now all I have to do is film the date itself. I have
a man all lined up and we have a date on Saturday, so check back later and see
how it went.
Newsflash! He has found this
site, and all that it contains, and is still willing to meet me. All
nominations for medals of bravery should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
