My husband Greg and I had an argument the other night. I won’t bore you with the sordid details but suffice to say; he was most definitely in the wrong. He stormed off to bed, leaving me stewing over divorce lawyers and how we should divide up the dog.  “I’ll show him”, I thought and … Continue reading »

Where in the World is Weirdo Woman?

Shamelessly copying from Where in the World is Waldo? (not to mention a friend’s occasional Facebook status) this very strange woman has been spotted in various locations around Europe.
