National Stalking Awareness Day #NSAD2013

Check out StalkingHelpline.org for advice Today is National Stalking Awareness Day, or #NSAD2013 if you’re on twitter today. I wanted to post again on stalking as its been a while since I posted my own stalking experience, and that post is a few pages back now. As well as the stalking helpline website I have also found a useful site called Digital Stalking, and they have advice for staying safe online including tips on Facebook privacy settings. Another Anti-Stalking site is ProtectionAgainstStalking.org/, not a catchy URL that, but they are on twitter as @EndToStalking which should be easier to remember. These days stalking is a crime, if you want to talk to someone please call 0808 802 0300 or if you are in danger always call 999. Don’t stay quiet, help is there. Here is an AudioBoo posted by Thames Valley police, its a stalking victim talking about her experience. […]

Introducing Stuffster – A Smart Shopping Tool – Review 3

Yesterday I found out about a site called Stuffster.com from a twitter buddy, I thought to myself “That’s an odd name” and then looked into what the site was about. I headed first to the Twitter Stuffster page, and then had a peek about the main website.  Stuffster in a pictorial nutshell.. Its a shopping tool, a bit like a funky hybrid of an auction sites watch list system and a comparison site and an Internet wish-list. You add products, from almost any site to your Stufflists, and set a desired price. So lets say you want something in particular, a certain brand of shoes and you know the style, You pop to your favourite sites as normal (after registering on Stuffster that is, I’ll talk you through that shortly) and look for these shoes in your size then click “+STUFF” button on your browsers links bar et voila, […]


Why I hate Valentines day 10

So much fake lovey dovey stuff is forced in our faces from mid January to make you buy over priced and largely tatt tokens of affection. I don’t want chocolates in a heart shaped box, or a cheaply made teddy bear just because it’s hugging a heart cushion. It’s everywhere, and this year I am NOT playing this Valentine’s game! This is going to be a rant, a personal one. If you know my in real life kindly stop reading. One year ago, on Valentine’s day night, at midnight so he’d think I’d forgotten any kind of gift or love token, totally unexpected to him (I think) I got down on one knee and asked him to be my husband. He said yes, I was so happy. Then he refused to put the ring on saying he didn’t like jewelry, didn’t want it mentioned anywhere people might hear it or […]

Kaboom – The Breakdown Post 8

Well, what can I say? I think kaboom is a great word for what’s going on. Last weekend I had a mental breakdown, it had been building for some time to be fair. I’ve been saying “I’m fine” way too much, as I just don’t know how to express how bad I feel. Kaboom… This resulted in me wanting to throw myself from the upstairs window on Saturday night, luckily I suppose, I have phobias, including a fear of heights. This meant I just was shaking uncontrollably instead, crying so much I felt like I was drowning from snot, and all around my eyes hurt like I had been punched in the face. I got up, went to work, struggling lots. Sunday night, same thing, so depressed it hurt. My partner had told me to stop snivelling and attention seeking. I wasn’t attention seeking, I was breaking from the inside. […]

Julie does Freddie from Queen

Well I’ve been at it again… there really isn’t many things I won’t do to try to win a holiday. So here is a video of me in stockings, heels, and a fake moustache, dancing about with a hoover and singing horrendously! Enjoy… And feel free to vote if you are registered on Facebook. Please “like” the “Saint Lucia – UK” page before you click by my name to vote, or it will not count. The direct link to the entry is here Julie voting link *updated 15 Oct*I had been comfortably ahead – asking colleagues for votes. Now I’m not at work so I was falling behind. Then Mel, Lucy, Charlie and the other Mel all tweeted my link like mad. Twitter was slightly overwhelming this morning, Love you for that! I recoreded and entered this before things went wrong so kind of sane, just being daft. The reason […]


So my hubby has gone a few hours ago…

Already i feel as though i might go crazy. He’s gone to Canada for work again. He left Gloucs at 11am and took off from Heathrow at half past 5. I feel so alone already…. Some people shouldn’t be parents and i suspect I am one of those. I have honestly already been crying, kids are really different when he’s not here. We don’t live in a show home, far from it, but call me a snob, i don’t find it as funny as my boys do to throw food across the room, stamp, rant and even tip a cup with hot chocolate in it onto a beige carpet whilst stareing at me…. Then threw it at the door! This was the 4year old. The 9year old miniature teen has been grunting, ranting, complaining and letting me know what a rubbish parent i am. I need help! I wrote on […]

Food. Farming. Future. 2

Well I was tagged by a twitter friend and asked to help out, so here you go Mich @ Mummy from the heart blog. Mich blogs these things so much better than me, so please do go to her blog for a read of her version. As a Mum I hate those starving kids adverts for charities on TV, not because I’m tight, but because it makes me feel helpless and useless I can’t do much to help them, I can’t go there personally and give those children clean water or food or hugs, and I won’t get into a financial debate here, but things are tight at the moment. I am very glad I was born in England, with clean water, and access to food and medicines. My youngest son, although not born early, or by C-section had a very similar problem to the situation mention in Mich’s post […]
