Mice To See You

Mice To See You        I can’t even concentrate with the noise of all the visitors in our home. No invitation was sent out to these trespassers and never will be. These hooligans are oblivious to their rudeness. Hence, chewing their way through the walls....

A Pauper's Guide to Style

A Pauper’s Guide to Style  Let me guess, you’ve got nothing to wear, you’ve absolutely no money and you want a new outfit? A HAH I’m always right the odd time. Use what you already have for the fun of it and let’s face it – you’ve no other ch...

Good with the Bad

I made the mistake of thinking I was brilliant after the best gig I’ve ever had. Oooops!! I was gigging in the very popular International Comedy Club for the whole weekend and had just come back from the Edinburgh festival two months before that. I’d been questioning what exactly I&rs...

No Easy Ride

I decided I better let my boyfriend off taxi duties for once and make my own way to work where possible. “Why don’t you just get a car?” everyone asks me - Because cars don’t grow on trees people, that’s why. I was invited on Ocean FM radio at Collooney indus...
