Once upon a time there was a young girl who had a big dream of living Happily Ever After.
This girl is me, Cinders, and I always thought that there would come a point when I would be living this dream.
But I’m not. Instead I am living a crazy existence - I am dealing with major personal issues, the effects of these stresses on myself and my family, I am still not settled with The One and neither do I have the home or life of my dreams as yet.
In plot terms I have…

Given that Gary Speed had phenomenal strength and self-discipline, hopefully no depressed person will ever again be told to get a grip - Jeremy Vine
Isn’t it devastating to wake up and hear about the death of a role model?
Gary Speed has been described as a great team mate, and an excellent footballer with an impressive history of achievements. His friends clearly care a great deal judging by the comments in the media,…

Mid-thirties is a troubling time to start dating; everything seems so much more serious. Gone are the days of happily waking up in someone’s home and then asking what they are doing later. Instead we have the days of letting appropriate time pass before calling and getting home by a reasonable hour to make sure the kids are fine for school tomorrow.
It is the time of accepting baggage. In our twenties (unless like me you were a teenage mum) everyone seemed to seek perfection;…

Feminism seems to have been badly marketed recently; it seems to have an image of militancy, like there is a mass of women in pleated trousers and Dr Martens with horn-rimmed glasses marching round demanding ultimate control for women. These women are rumoured to be on a mission to subordinate men to the sofa where they deserve to rot in front of the bad TV and sport they have subjected us to while we have been cooking for them in the kitchen.
But I think this is extremist…

Okay, okay. It has been said before that I am a bit hard; a tough cookie; someone that will choose the impossible choice as opposed to the easy or conventional path.
But I believe that the hard choice sits in the wings ominously waiting to take the stage no matter how hard I try to avoid it. And funnily enough, that choice seems to force its way into the light when I have centre stage. Why would I want to keep having my successes rocked by an uninvited extra?

Some quick facts about Melissa Foster:
She is insanely pretty with a big smile and amazing hair.
Her favourite song is Dancing Queen because of how much she loves Mamma Mia (don’t we all? Except my little sister - weird).
Her favourite food is mint chocolate chip ice cream from Baskin and Robbins (and now Marks and Spencer brownies...read on...)
Her favourite drink, contrastingly healthily, is ice water. (I pack away the Somerset…

The trial of Conrad Murray is over; he has been found guilty of ‘killing’ Michael Jackson and he now faces up to four years in jail.
But apparently this isn’t enough; and I’m not even sure it is fair.
Jermaine Jackson has been quoted in the news as saying that he and his family still do not have closure after this, and that they may be seeking more court action. Don’t get me wrong, I have sympathy for their loss, but I was not under the impression that a criminal…

1. Name someone with the same birthday as you.
Neil Armstrong. And Marilyn Monroe died this day... I know that’s not the same as birth but I like identifying with her in this
2. What has been your favorite age so far?
Now. Each year I think I get better - like wine or cheese. My looks may be fading but my confidence and intelligence is increasing. Except at the mo while I am dealing with this Mr X thing which has been stressful.
3. Where did you meet your…Continue

I know I realise I have been letting all of you down.
While I have been wittering on about creativity, the police and the stresses of Princessdom life, I have neglected to keep you up to date with PC.
You could even be asking - is he still on the scene? After all, CYG came in and out of Cinders’ life as quick as a designer-shop’s paper bag in the rain. PC could also have jumped on the back of his white steed and scarpered back to the glorious kingdom of Taunton. But he…
