Smiling Kisses

I had a dream about you recently. It started out as mundane as can be. We were hanging out, eating breakfast, looking at each other’s writing, making suggestions, praising each other shamelessly, our feet snuggling under the table. After a morning of concentrating on editing, we decided we deserved the chance to relax. We went […]

Singing Sex #43

The first time I saw the title to the song I am featuring in today’s SINGING SEX Series, I was shocked. Well. I was only a little girl. But by the time I reached high school, the chorus line had made it’s way into every sex education video going. I just love the music from […]

Would The Real Narcissists Please Stand Up?

Whenever I hear the word “narcissist” I have to admit I am slightly amused. I have so many friends who have broken up with someone, and it transpires after their break up that their ex was a “narcissist”. It has become one of the overused terms of the past five years or so. It is […]

Sex Sells #53

This week we have a treat in store…one of the most iconic adverts ever made. Levis 501 know how to make a sexy commercial. They pick the right music, they create a scene, crank up the tension, and their male stars always play the role with utter cooldom. I don’t need to say much more […]

My Cup Of Ambition

As I look back, I think my cup of ambition turned out to be more of a thimble than a cup. I lived for years being drawn along the current of my father’s ambitions for me. That did not work. I came to a point when I knew I could not remain in the career […]

Jim’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday made me think of one of my favourite classic films. I always loved watching Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong in the sensational “High Society”. Tracy Samantha Lord, played by Grace Kelly, reminds me so much of my mom. As a child, I used to watch […]

The Coryphée

In a triumphant grand jeté, he leapt onto the stage just like a young gazelle in heat. Muscles rippling through his legs caused him to spring all over the boards with gleeful animation. He made it look all so easy. Every dancer in our corps de ballet gazed in wonder at his agility. As a […]

You Appeal To The Child Within Me

I wonder if you raised an eyebrow when you saw this title. But it is true. There is a little girl within, innocent as can be, pure-hearted, full of imagination, full of dreams. Don’t we all have a child within who seeks adventure but needs safety? Aren’t we drawn to someone that excites us and […]

Singing Sex #42

I have to admit I had never thought of Rod Stewart – is it Sir Rod Stewart? – as sexy, but that is perhaps because of the age difference between us. I do love his voice though. My beloved Noo suggested this track, and I am so pleased she did. I am sure it was […]

September’s FLIRTY FUN

September’s RASPBERRY RIPPLES FLIIRTY FUN question: What does love mean to you? This question may seem familiar to you. Last month it was featured by Caramel in The Great Bloggers’ Bake Off. She had replies from around two hundred people in total, some of whom gave the same answers as each other. I helped Mel […]
