My new Noovy Groovy Office wedges. Lovely eh. They do come up with some wacky names those ker-azee Office peeps. Must be a blast sitting in on their board meetings. The hijinks that must go on. Anyway, £20 reduced from £60!! And they were exactly what I was looking for. You know, I often wonder about this world what with all the natural disasters, crime rates and deadly diseases etc. But when the gods smile down on me like this I understand that there is good out there after all. Well anyway, I'm procrastinating, when I should be giving my excuses for not posting for 3 weeks. I simply don't have any though, I've just been quite busy. Done some PR writing for LAC, and more importantly I now have my own column!!! Even more brilliantly, it's called 'Bex and the City'. Genius. I finally got to see the published article today as it was in the issue of Leeds Guide that's just hit the shelves. Here are a couple of things I've written for the site recently:- http…

Bet your bottom dollar, you and I are through, cos lipstick on your collar told a tale on you

Went to the preview screening for A Passionate Woman last night; see Billie Piper above in full 50s garb. She wasn't there unfortunately, but a lot of Leeds faces were such as BBC Leeds presenter Christa Ackroyd, who did a Q & A session with Kay Mellor at the end. Nothing new really arose from that, she talked about more or less the same points as when I interviewed her. But to finally watch the programme was great and it massively exceeded my expectations. When it finished you could almost hear the whole room just sighing 'Wow'. We watched the first instalment, which focuses on Kay's mum Betty's young life, which is when Billie plays her. Her Leeds accent is faultless, and you just can't take your eyes off her whenever she's on screen. There are 2 instalments of 90mins each so can't wait to see the next one when it airs next month, Sue Johnston will play the older Betty in that one. It has a lot of humour and in a lot of ways it's so uplifting…

Every day is like......

Me looking VERY weird in Northern Monkey last night. Post-jagermeister. Not good. And scary that I saw people from the theatre group about an hour later than this horror. God knows what I looked like or indeed spoke of. Plus side=wearing my new dress which I'm awfully fond of. £13, Primark. Amazing. Looks truly vintage. Not such a plus=awaking with large and painful open wound on leg from falling over onto broken glass in kitchen at 4am. Classyyyy. And today has been SO beautiful, I can just smell summer now. Shame I only got to bask in the day's heat for a short 15 minutes or so on hobbling to Tesco and back for plasters and trusty coke to cure my dicky tummy. Since then, I have NOT stopped eating. Seriously, potato cakes/crumpets/bacon ciabatta/pork chicken and stuffing pie/pork apple and spices pie/a 2litre bottle of coke. And that's only since I began to slowly recover slightly at about 5pm. And I now plan on finally cracking open my queen size bar of galaxy that I re…
