Read my diary…

Ever wished you could read someone's diary?

I started keeping diaries when I was 11 years old: in fact, I even re-published my very first journal here on the blog… so if you’ve ever wondered what it was like being a pony-mad pre-teen in the late ’80s, your wish has just been granted.  My blog is basically a continuation of those early paper journals, and I write regular life updates, along with random stories about anything that takes my fancy.

So far we’ve tackled the kitchen and living room, the master bedroom and nursery, and I also have an entire room for my clothes. (Look, I’m a fashion blogger: I have a LOT of clothes…) That just leaves everything else… and we’re slowly working our way through the rest of the to-do list, hampered only slightly by our habit of flooding the house, or having to have the hallway dug up.  Want to know more?

I sometimes write restaurant reviews.

Never say any of these things...

(Unless you want to be really, really annoying...)

A question of etiquette

INTERESTED IN ETIQUETTE?

Me too: although, I’m not talking about “etiquette” in the sense of knowing which fork to use with each course, or how you should address an Earl – important though those things undoubtedly are. No, I’m more interested in questions of modern etiquette: like whether it’s rude to ask visitors to remove their shoes, or if you’re obliged to be Facebook friends with your family members.

A matter of opinion.

My opinions aren’t particularly controversial, but they annoy people anyway.
