If you think education is expensive, try…

“If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” That’s a great quote. Attributed to Ann Landers (Eppie Lederer), Derek Bok and a bunch of other chancers who wish they’d said it.

Do you PP?

I’ve found myself being a PP. Have you? A PP here. PP there. Here a P. There a P. You get it. It’s…   People Pleasing. And gosh, it’s tiring. Attempting to reply to every comment.

I was intrigued and sure enough a very cool knife sharpener was on offer. For £250! I hardly use knives, but I still wanted […]

What were you doing?

Everyone knows the ‘80s was the best decade. Especially, if like me, you’re in your fifties. Of course, my granddaughter will think the ’30s or ’40s are the best. And that’s weird; thinking that we’re now in the twenties. The new twenties 😳.     Anyhoo, I digress.   To write this newsletter I thought it […]
