The iron, the bitch and the wardrobe.

Every time I open my wardrobe I can hear my size 10 jeans calling me a fat arse. ‘Soon’ I used to whisper to them, fingering them idly ‘Soon!’ and then I would proceed to torture myself rotten with guilt, anytime I put anything in my mouth. (Food I mean, you smutty lot!) Now though, I […]

Live fast, die young…

Sometimes when I wake up in the morning, For a split second, I forget. If I hear the theme tune for the sopranos, For a split second, I forget. When I see a motorbike zooming past, For a split second, I forget. When I hear a voice in a crowd that sounds like you, For […]

Inspired much?

Miss Ellis. Motivated, focused and looking for inspiration! At least, this is what it reads at the top of my Cv. So it must be true! Because clearly nobody ever lies on their Cv do they? I have also been 27 for the last 4 years, am an award winning tap-dancer, and in 1984 I […]

I love you, but please don’t bring a horse.

Choosing a god mother and father has been something of a dilemma for myself and the Irish one. Actually I take that back. It has been a dilemma for me.

If she is a size 12, i am a supermodel.

God I wish I was naturally thin. I don’t know about you, but the word ‘diet’ makes my skin actually crawl. The word ‘gymnasium’ makes me want to shove as many salt and vinegar square crisps in to my mouth, as quickly as I possibly can until I feel like I am happily chewing on […]

Is there a therapist in the house?

When I was little I wanted an eye patch. One of my earliest childhood memories, is of a little girl appearing at my front door with her over -dressed mother  (for some reason when I remember this moment, I always picture the mother wearing a red and white poker-dot ball gown. But I’m sure that […]

What goeth around must cometh around…

‘What goes around comes around’ is a saying most are familiar with right? ‘He’s left you?’ ooo what goes around comes around. ‘She stole your last kit-kat?’ ooo what goes around comes around. ‘He is sleeping with your best mate?’ ooo what goes around comes around. ‘He made you cry?’ ooo what goes around comes […]
