Life is a bit of a shitstorm at the moment, with the Coronavirus in full swing, lockdowns in place, and morons like Donald F###ing Trump threatening word war three at every turn.

I mean, in the last 24 hours, and on top of all the other bollocks he’s been tweeting, Trump actually tweeted “I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea”.

Do gunboats actually fly now?……

That’s really helpful. Thanks Don!!

Anyway, life itself is slapping me in the face at the moment.
Nature is cruel.
I say nature, because there is no God.
If there was a God, there would be no war and suffering and there wouldn’t be any viruses threatening humanity.

Don’t get me wrong, I understand people have their own beliefs, and if those beliefs bring them comfort and a way of dealing with their lives, then who am I to argue. I’m just saying, that personally, I thinks it’s all bollocks and we are on our own.

Women in particular should be sticking their two fingers up at any notion of God. What have they ever done for us?
At puberty we are given our monthly cycle. Something which is uncomfortable and embarassing at best, and excruciatingly painful at worst, and something to ‘endure’ every month of our fertile lives.
To procreate, we are expected to give birth to something the size of a melon, through a hole the size of an apple, and that’s AFTER morning sickness and cravings and weight gain during the pregnancy in the first place.

Then, after we have endured all that, we have menopause.
Now here is where this post becomes relevant.

Over the last year I have been noticing slight symptoms of menopause.
Nothing much. Hot flushes and irregular cycles. I could live with that.
However, things have ramped up a bit.

I have been saying for months that I need to loose weight and get a bit fitter.
Well, time is now most definitely NOT on my side.
It would appear that I am going through ‘the change’.
For the last year that has meant irregular cycles and hot flushes. Things I could deal with.
But my body has decided… NOPE!!
With everything else that is going on at the moment, I’m going to make you feel like SHIT!!
I’m going to give you night sweats and difficulty sleeping, I’m going to give you palpitations, headaches, stiff joints and low mood.

Thank you nature for picking the most inopportune moment to throw this at me.

I have found over the last month, during this lockdown period, I am not getting my usual exercise. My sleep pattern is atrocious and I am constantly feeling tired and rubbish.
I have good day and bad days.
The day before yesterday I was feeling crap!
Yesterday was actually a pretty good day.
Today I just feel…Meh!

Over the last month, during this lockdown, my weight has spiralled out of control.
I’m not getting my usual exercise.
On my days off I am stuffing my face with crap and booze.

I need to set a date to get back on track.
I think I also need to go and talk to my GP when they open their doors again.

Monday 27th April.
That’s my date.
It gives me a few days to get things out of my system and then I have to think about the next year.
I need to concentrate on my diet and exercise.
If I don’t lose this weight now, I never will.

How’s your lockdown going?


I don’t know why I do it to myself!!!
It started as a laugh.
I followed Donald Trump on Twitter quite a while ago.
The drivel that spouts out of that orange Twat’s mouth is, during normal times, absolutely hysterical, however, we are not in normal times and his drivel and self superiority are becoming increasing dangerous.

He currently tweets on a daily basis….

“White House news conference today at 5:00 P.M. Eastern. Thank you!”

Like he thinks people are going to forget!!

He tweets like a petulant 6 year old.
He attacks anyone who disagrees with him in any way, shape or form.
He boasts about things he’s done and drivels on about ‘his’ popularity and ratings. Most of which is absolute BULLSHIT!

His daily Coronavirus news conferences have started to show his true colours.
He attacks any reporter who dares to ask a question he doesn’t like and regularly uses terms like ‘lamestream’ or ‘fake news’.
So much for ‘freedom of speech’

It is quite clear that this man is living in Cloud Cuckoo Land.
Considering the current death toll in the US, particularly New York who are having to dig mass graves, he is seriously thinking about lifting lockdown precautions because apparently, they’ve got Coronavirus on the the run.

Can you believe he is actually thinking of sending all the Kindergarten, elementary, middle and high school kids back to school on 11th May!
He won’t be sending college students back until Sept though.
No, because college students can look after themselves at home and he needs the parents of all the other kids to go back to work for the economy!!

Sending all those kids back into a melting pot of the virus to take it all back home to those same parents and carers and then the virus will explode again and be even more devastating the second time around.

Watching him drivel on at these daily news conferences is painful!
He hasn’t got a clue what he’s talking about. He has all his experts around him but rarely gives them chance to speak. They are even seen to be wincing at statements he makes.

Yesterday he stooped to a new low and actually showed a ‘sizzle’ reel of what he says he’s done and achieved since Coronavirus reared it’s ugly head in China. It was designed to do nothing but boost his ego and one reporter in particular noted that it completely skipped over anything that was done during February and she absolutely roasted him.

The fact is that during February, he did nothing but play golf, hold rallies and Tweet drivel has not gone unnoticed and hopefully, Americans who voted him into office are finally seeing the error they have made. I just hope that thousands of Americans don’t end up losing their lives because of idiotic decisions made by this total imbecile.


What a week it’s been!

This time last week I was getting on a train and heading to London to a preview screening of ‘Paterson’ and then see Adam Driver in a Q+A afterwards.
It was an absolutely amazing day and I can’t praise the film enough.

The difficulty with trying to explain the film to others though is the fact that the basic story line sounds so dull!!
A bus driver called Paterson from Paterson , New Jersey, drives a bus all week and writes poetry in his spare time.

How do you make that sound interesting enough to make people go and see it?
You can’t!!
The trailer doesn’t do it any justice either.

All I can say is that it is an absolute gem of a movie.
If you want to get as far away from the ‘in your face blockbusters’ as you can, then this movie is the one for you.
Simple, beautiful, funny, sad.
Released 25th November.

Then come back and tell me what you think.

Anyway, the week then took a bit of a nose dive.

The American election.
I can’t believe that ‘that man’ (I will not use his name on my blog) has won.
It is shocking to me, that the ‘majority’ of Americans who believe in ‘family values’ have quite happily voted for a sexual predator to run their country.

This means the ‘majority’ of Americans would quite happily overturn the right for loving same sex couples to marry.
POC’s aren’t thought of as citizens, even if they were born in the US.
Women are thought of as merely play things for men.
Anyone from the queer community are at risk from losing any rights they have fought so hard for.

It is a frighteningly sad day in history.

Let’s face it. The new first lady is a trophy wife.
‘That man’ wants to get rid of immigrants?
He should start with his wife, who is a foreigner who can barely speak English!!
He’s so two faced it’s untrue.

To top it off, I can’t look or listen to the man without wanting to vomit.


In a bit of a debate with my husband the other night about it all, I said that hate crime would sky rocket in the next 4 years and then just 24 hours later I see some of the most disturbing posts on Tumblr I have ever seen. Just 24 hours after the announcement of his victory and the hate has already started. His victory has emboldened the misogynistic racist bigots of the country.
I was sat at work in a break and literally wanted to cry.

No doubt I will get a few rants in about him over the next few years…. if someone doesn’t assassinate him first. (We can but hope)
In which case I’ll be having a party.
