Just The Madame

Simply single!

Single … That dreaded (by some!) relationship status … Like it or not, there is a certain stigma associated with being single … especially past a certain age … suddenly your “independent” single ways that were celebrated and revered become something to commiserate over. Your 20 something description might read something like “Chanteuse … She’s…

Laugh out loud…

The saying goes … Sometimes you just have to laugh! I truly live that in my life and my business. I’m blessed, along with the rest of my family with having the ability to always find humour and happiness even in what would to other people be dire or downright shocking situations! We choose to…

Flirtophobia

Yup, this is a real fear, just ask Google 😉 I’ve often blogged about this topic in the past, and my seeming inability to detect when someone is flirting with me. It seems that people also often misread my intentions or interest levels, not sure if this is my fault or theirs, but either way…

I’m just not that into you!

Sometimes I look at people in relationships and wonder why they’re in them, they really don’t seem that into each other, either physically or as people in general! I guess there are other needs and fears at play … Like the NEED for a wedding, the NEED for a marriage, the NEED to procreate, the…

It’s erotica, not fucking Shakespeare!

You may have heard of this little trilogy called Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James … if you haven’t, where have you been?  Under a rock?!  It’s only the biggest thing since sliced bread and spearheading a worldwide “Mommy Porn” phenomenon … but by all means climb back under the rock or stick your head…

Festive Season Lessons

Here are the things I learned over this festive season: Never drink a cocktail on an empty stomach, no matter how delicious. Never follow said cocktail with shots of tequila, no matter how delicious. When you are doing tequila with shots of lemon juice in between (because there’s no sliced lemon) you should realise it’s…

It’s nearly Christmas … thank fuck!

It feels like this season has been totally manic for me this year, although if I look back a year I was recovering from my gall bladder removal and about 12 kgs heavier!  So I guess even though it doesn’t feel like it right now, this year is a massive improvement on last 🙂 It’s…

Sickening!

I hate blogging when I’m happy.  Who wants to hear it right?!?!  I think people swallow (or maybe wallow) in sarcasm and bitching and unhappiness easier than they do happiness.  I really don’t have anything to bitch about recently … I mean sure a few trivial things … but nothing REALLY important. Life is good!…

Laughing out loud and often!

I’m in a really light phase right now, there seems to be laughter all around me, so it’s not hard to laugh out loud and regular like!  Sometimes people say things to you that stick, and when you examine why, it can tell you a lot about yourself.  Duffy once said to me, she loves…
