missing…

Well hi there folks. We’re over here in Italy. C was here over last week-end and flew back Monday which makes me blue but R keeps me full of spirits. We’re working like bloody Trojans here as we try to get our place ready for letting it out this summer for the first time. Huge amounts of interest on the web-site –  if anybody’s interested please contact http://www.ownersdirect.co.uk/italy/IT4089.htm to learn more and hopefully be inspired to come out here. Hey, we need to be in London for the next couple of months at least so why not take advantage of our lovely home? Continue reading

smile…. though your heart is aching

silvio-e-veronica

As far as the fortunes of two Prime Ministers are concerned, I don’t think Nat King Cole could have phrased it any better. Take poor old Silvio. All he does – allegedly – is have countless affairs and very public dalliances over the years with a succession of very pretty young girls, buy them trinkets and turn up to their 18th birthday parties (having failed to attend any of his own children’s 18ths) in Napoli (he was just passing by) and appoint them to senior positions in his Government. And what happens? His exasperated, long-suffering and no doubt humiliated  wife Veronica only goes and calls the media (the one bit not controlled by her husband) and publicly demands a divorce. Who’da thunk it?   Continue reading

prescott eating disorder – shock!

Er not really. Is it just me or was anybody else terribly shocked to hear that Prezza Prescott scoffs a lot? I know I’m not in a good position to pass judgement on people’s shapes but he’s a porker. My only surprise at the news of his bulimia problem was that he actually purged himself. Blimey he’d have been a size if he hadn’t. I’m not trying to make light of the illness  – I realise many people struggle desperately with the condition – but in Prezza’s case  he’s kept it quiet until his book’s launched. So his announcement, revealed exclusively via his book’s serialisation, is not an honest admission designed to help others but a cynical publicity stunt to help flog copies of the paper and the book of course. So I feel ok about poking fun at old lovehandles Prezza. I now have this weird image of him licking condensed milk off his secretary’s bits and pieces as he carried out his Whitehall ‘duties’. Eh up looks like it’s Nestle time again JP!

 Well it made me want to retch.
