“‘Living in ‘The Now’? What’s going on, indeed?” you might ask if you were interested, and – let’s face it – you probably aren’t, but if you read (or now care to read) the post I wrote on 27th September you’ll see that it was my first in over two years. “Ok, so you’ve just […]

It’s been a very long time since I put fingers to keys on here – as the big revamp of this site has taken a LOT longer than I thought.
Who hasn’t fallen in love with those Corrie meerkats, and the arrival of baby Oleg has given us an even bigger ‘Aah’ factor. Such a cute little chap, and you can exclusively see the new baby Oleg trailers right here before they’re broadcast on Coronation Street tonight.
It’s over, and the Corrie Coronation Street timelines on Twitter prior to last night’s epsiodes were basically saying either: ‘I don’t want to watch’, or ‘I’m going to cry my eyes out’.
It was clear that we’d have to wait until the end of the second episode for the actual suicide, and it seems that there’s some disagreement (and a lot of disappointment) this morning about what we saw.
Coronation Street’s pancreatic cancer storyline comes to its heartbreaking climax on Monday 20th January as Hayley Cropper takes her own life. Never before has there been a night when devoted Corrie fans won’t be looking forward to watching their favourite soap (and there probably never will be again), but watch we will, and cry we will. As with […]
I’m back! ‘Who cares?’ you yawn, but it’s (relatively) exciting news this end, as I’m happy to declare that … yes, it’s done. That dastardly tax return (which has been hanging round my neck like a dastardly tax return necklace) is finished, and next week I’m going to do this year’s too, so that I […]
The end of a year is always a sobering time, and at this time in 2012 I was facing my father’s impending death from terminal cancer and then having to sell the family home and our family’s ‘past/life’. It was a ‘challenging’ year, and this Christmas was also a challenge, but as I sat alone […]
Christmas in Emmerdale, and everyone’s getting on like a house on fire. Oops … Yes, Declan’s latest bright idea was to burn Home Farm down and pocket the insurance money. Ah, and it was all going so well too, until the whole thing ‘went up in smoke’.
Christmas can be murder. Janine’s certainly was. It might take a while, but (like with Emmerdale’s Carl) Soap ‘baddies’ will always get their comeuppance in the end. Janine’s performance over the last few weeks has been gripping, and Charlie Brooks is definitely going out on a high.
‘Rat-eyes’, secrets and lies, ‘an eye on the prize’ and impending goodbyes.
IMG_2872I’m a bit scared to admit it, but I didn’t really enjoy the Christmas week episodes …
According to the media we’d been promised ‘laughter all the way’, but Christmas on Coronation Street just fell a little bit short on the old ‘Ho, ho, ho’ for me.
“What on earth makes you say this, Jane?” you gasp.
