is russell brand the mockingjay?

If there were ever any doubts in the minds of society at large that I am in fact a VIP, they have now been shattered…

While I can hear you all thinking: “Who in their right mind would doubt such a thing?”, the sad truth is that somewhere out there, in a world not unlike our own, the haters are hating. Wherever these haters may be, I can now confirm that they are not at Odeon cinemas in Greenwich, ‘cause those cinematic superstars laid out their red carpets and prepped the best seats in the house for yours truly to watch Mockingjay: Part One on yesterday’s fine Wednesday evening. The truth of the matter is my mate works at the Nando’s next door and bagged us the freebie tickets. I’m not really a VIP, sob. Continue reading “is russell brand the mockingjay?”

the uk weather bomb: a survival guide

So as the social media Trending areas, the Daily Mail sidebar of shame, or the news will have probably told you, the UK has been hit by no less than a weather bomb. You may be wondering what the France a weather bomb actually is, and you’re not alone. I can safely say that I too looked at the headlines and wondered whether Poseidon himself had decided to wage war on our little island. It would seem though, that although the media gang are referring to it as a bomb, we’re in fact just being hit by the usual miserable rainy weather that we’re used to, only a little more intense. Anti-climax or what? Continue reading “the uk weather bomb: a survival guide”

an urgent plea: get me to hogwarts

So I’ve waited all of five days to post about Harry Potter, and I think I’ve done quite well. As a few of you may know (hi mum), I’m a bit of a HP fan. I am, in fact, the proud owner of three wands, a cloak (Slytherin – haters gonna hate), and a small collection of tattoos – tokens of my appreciation for the boy who lived… Continue reading “an urgent plea: get me to hogwarts”

monday morning

Well, it’s Monday morning. The first Monday morning, in fact, since I started up this little space of heavenly blogging. I fear that the only people visiting the blog are my mandem and my mum (hi mum), but if by any chance you’ve stumbled upon here through a misread link or something, I’ll tell you a little bit about a Monday morning in my life… Continue reading “monday morning”

team edward!!!!

Despite the fact that ladies, gents, mams and grans have all set their hearts on one Edward the world over, the only Edward for me has scissors for hands and a penchant for leather. Although Edward Scissorhands may not be a vampire, his scissors still sparkle just like Mr Cullen in the sunlight, and he has the added bonus of being a great gardener (assuming, of course, that both characters exist)… Continue reading “team edward!!!!”

christmas cheer (and festive loathing)

I figure I should kick off my posting on here with something topical. And seen as though it’s nearly Christmas (SANTAAAAAAA!!! I KNOW HIM!!!) I’m going to kick things off with a little ode to Christmas shopping… Continue reading “christmas cheer (and festive loathing)”

aloha

Ello, Bonjour, Καλημερα and welcome! my name is Madeleine, hailing from God’s own country of Yorkshire and daydreaming through 20s life in London town. As I’m shit at keeping secrets, it’s probably best to come clean now; I’ve never written a blog for myself in my life. But please don’t hit the top right red-cross-of-death just yet, ‘cause it might be that I’m actually alright at it… Continue reading “aloha”
