"Excellent. I'm a national laughing stock. Have bottom the size of Brazil"

So, ok that last part is not true, (thanks half marathon training!) but I have had my own Bridget Jones moment recently when I happened to accidently get a musican's name wrong in a review. James Duncan = Duncan James.......oh the shame. Of course the irony is that James Duncan is so nothing like Duncan James (whom I still think is a talentless twat even if he doesn't enter into my life in any way whatsoever!) - besides has anyone ever seen James Duncan sitting on a bar stool dressed like a knob, crooning something written by Neil Diamond?

At least this was a funny Bridget Jones moment I suppose, embarrassing but not crucifying!

Grrr. Off to Unknown Pleasures next weekend, am pretty sure I can't fuck anything up for that review.

First Aid Kit Review on!

So after trying to make money from reviews via, and finding their rules just a little too regimented....The first gig I've been to since Florence I wrote up and posted to my favourite NZ music website, and bless them, they posted it!

What a difference a year makes....

Ok, so it hasn't been a year since I last posted, but it totally feels like a lot has happened. Home to England for a wedding and Christmas, New York for a snowy New Year (glorious!),back to Auckland for more procrastinating, then was given an opportunity to do something I love for a job in what since then?

Novel still not finished, but it has a title - English Girls Approximately (first person to work out who I stole that from gets a prize!. First draft WILL be done this year, then some of you lucky people will get to critique it and tell me what you think.

I've joined as a freelance writer, which is great for keeping my hand in, so to speak! Will find a way to link that with this at some point soon.....
