An ironic tribute to The Beatles

It’s hard to believe where the time has gone this year. It only feels like yesterday that it was New Years Eve and I was quite happily watching the Harry Potter box set with my other half. Now, we are in March. I’m supposed to ‘march’ on and choose a career path that is right […]

It’s like that, is it?

It’s been an odd few months here in my household, as the time is fast approaching where I am finishing University and life is going to have to go one way or another. I’m getting a lot of unnecessary pressure from my parents to make a decision, and lo and behold, they want me to […]

Theresa May, lovely, sweet Theresa May…. Yeah, right! This wretched pensioner is set to take something away from the British people that tried to curb the youths of today.
