review, sort of: savion glover, sole sanctuary
It's not often you'll find one of my reviews on this site but as no one asked me to review Savion Glover's latest show SoLe Sanctuary, here it is. Actually, this isn't a proper review; it's more of a response to the lukewarm reviews I came across on t'inter...

for my littlest one, left behind
Yesterday, we took our nieces and our oldest two to see Wicked in Milton Keynes. We didn't think our youngest would be able to sit through a 3 hour (plus intermission) musical and we wouldn't be home until almost midnight. Feeling very guilty, as mothers ar...

the unfairness of germs
When my children get any sort of bug, they might seem a little tired for an afternoon or maybe go off their food for an hour or so. When they pass the same bug along to me, I want to die. I want to crawl into bed, take all the drugs available over the count...

This is a blog all about a travelling tutu to cheer up our friend who has breast cancer. It's early days yet, but there are lots more tutu tour stops to come!

and then the kate bush ticket gods smiled upon me
My first year at York university was in 1986. I had really big hair and I thought I was pretty cool because I was a Fine Arts Student. I was on my way to get my BFA (or as most of us fondly called it, a "Bachelor's of Fuck All") and I wore a lot of black an...

(not) an open letter to other mothers
Dear stay at home mums and working mums, I recently came across open letters from a working mum to stay at home mums and vice versa, and it was pretty cool. It went against the Mommy War grain and put forth messages of support for those in the trenches at h...

Tutu Stop #1: Chelmsford With Gill
Chelmsford has many attractions: the birthplace of radio, one of the most boring places ever visited by Charles Dickens, and two good dancewear and fancy dress shops. And so it was that I bought a hot pink tutu. I'd like you to know that a considerable disc...
