“Summer in the City”

published 04/09/2004

ProPure unadulterated pleasure

ContraNot a single one

Let me confess up front. This did not, strictly speaking, make me happy. I wasn't unhappy to begin with. What I was afterwards is….well, does 'suffused with joy' sound too pretentious?…."glad to be alive" too trite?… "pleased to me" too self-satisfied? They all apply, but let's just settle for...

Those of you who know me well - and any of you who have assiduously read my reviews know me as well as anybody, which may be a poor reward for all the effort but I can't help that - know that for a tired old cynic I am strangely susceptible to groundless good cheer. I am one of those people who...

ProFor me, a totally new kind of holiday

ContraI don't even want to think of any

I suppose this could have waited till Ciao had a France/Creuse Valley category, but what I'm about to write would have been so off-topic in many places that it wouldn't have justified a place in the travel section. However, as something that's made me happy recently, what follows fits the bill...

“What makes me smile”

published 22/05/2004

ProSee op

ContraSee op

This sounds a good op to do, plus it would be good for me because if I am feeling down and depressed I can read this myself and remind myself what makes me happy, my kind of therapy. We all need happiness but it’s reminding ourselves what. Especially in our busy lives we sometimes forget the most...

I’ve been working as a receptionist at this music company for 2 ½ years now so as you can imagine, speaking to the same people daily, you get to know them quite well and make friends. One of the people I had made friends with is in a band with a few other people at the company he works for and I...

“For Niamh with love.....”

Promillions

Contranone

Dear Niamh, I can always remember the very first time I saw you, you were laid in the crib all wrapped up,so tiny and fragile with the most beautiful eyes. We both laid there staring at each other. You'll never really know how incredible that feeling was, the fact that you were there and you were...

ProIt sure beats sadness

ContraMy face aches if I smile too much

I am generally a happy soul, I smile a lot (so I am told, it is not something I am conscious of), I laugh a lot too, even at bad jokes but more so at good jokes badly told by my wife. Those who know me, or have read some recent opinions of mine, will know that the last year has not been the...

Contra...no everyone is happy!

I never thought I would be writing something, or even thinking about something that made me so sad before, but has made me so happy now. Lost? Well you should be. I’m just as confused. As some of you know, and some of you don’t I split with my boyfriend in June, we’d been...

“The day I met Busted”

published 15/07/2003

ProI met my favourite band

ContraNone

I had become obsessed with Busted since I first heard What I Go To School For! The lyrics were so clever and it was such a fun and lively song! After watching their music video on THE BOX I went upstairs and onto the internet! www.busted.com I guessed correctly! :-D I read all about the boys and...

So, the 85th Oscars and no British films likely to win big this time around, traditional Hollywood nostalgia set to dominate tonight, The Help and The Artist on the front of the grid. During the week we learnt that the main reason why films like the Kings Speech do so well is that most of the...
