Should I Get A Pet? 

Growing up, my house was one animal short of being the 21st century’s answer to Noah’s ark. From terrapins to budgies, fish to cats and dogs, and even the occasional earthworm and snail, it’s fair to say that my parents were pretty open to the idea of having their house destroyed by their adorable childrenContinue reading Should I Get A Pet? 

Poem: A Parent’s Love

A Parent’s Love Embers of amor engulf us as you touch my face once more. Held in your arms as closely as the day on which I was born. You have loved me from the moment my heart began beating. A childhood spent with you, If only time could be repeated. Although I will growContinue reading “Poem: A Parent’s Love”

Animal Instincts

If you could choose to be any animal in the world, which would you choose to be?   This thought sprung to mind as I watched my sister’s cat lick her wounds in a state of a pure delusion. The 5 year old tabby was shell shocked moments after being bitten in the spine byContinue reading “Animal Instincts”

City life

Like mice, Trapped in the rat race. A maze made for manipulation. Man against man, race against race.    A breath. Of fresh air at dawn. As futile as asking the sun to, Rise at dusk and set in the morn.   Private, A word less chosen. Only by those of land un-citied. Cities keepContinue reading “City life”

Day Trip – Woburn Safari park

Zoos are pretty dichotomous places. Good for their conservation of an endangered breed yet bad  by preventing an animal from living in its natural habitat. Many more pros and cons come into play when determining whether there is a need for a zoo or not. But I’ll keep that discussion in the pipeline, for todayContinue reading “Day Trip – Woburn Safari park”

Poem: Ocean

The ocean hugs the shoreline like a mother does her child. Waves crash against the coastline as the stars above collide. A million lightyears away, do planets exist like mine? Why does it matter anyway? For it’s Earth where I reside.    The sunlit sands so soft to touch, as Mr Sunshine beams his smile,Continue reading “Poem: Ocean”

Prepare To See A Camel Race!

Standing in a field in the blustering weather on a Monday afternoon in Northaw, you’d forgive me for doing a double take at the sight of a bright-eyed, beige- bodied spitting camel come hurtling down the hill, with the jockey in tow gripping onto the camel’s moulting mound for dear life. Yes, cheltenham eat yourContinue reading “Prepare To See A Camel Race!”

Fun Obscure Things To Do In London

When walking the dog just doesn’t cut the mustard why not try:   Laughter Yoga Pretend to be 5 years old again and you may end up laughing for a lifetime.

Psychology Test – Are You A Dog Or Cat Person?

Walking into the ExCel London yesterday afternoon I couldn’t help but think to myself – this place is a  canine lover’s paradise and feline lover’s Hell! The event I was attending at the East London event was  the annual ‘Discover Dogs’ extravaganza. It certainly got tails wagging all weekend with agility shows, best in showContinue reading “Psychology Test – Are You A Dog Or Cat Person?”

5 Extraordinary Jobs That I Never Knew Existed

If you thought working 9 to 5 was all about number crunching and pencil pushing think again: Certified Seat Filler Empty seats at some of the biggest events in TV are an absolute no no so random people may actually be paid to make up the numbers. My question is – how the hell canContinue reading “5 Extraordinary Jobs That I Never Knew Existed”
