I’m Ron Burgundy?

I love the Will Ferrell film ‘Anchorman’. It’s not just the jokes that get me laughing, I recognise everyone of the characters featured (well I’ve worked with all of them at some point in various newsrooms) and I’ve been in similar situations – what rookie...

A Postcard from Paradise

Here’s a blog I wrote last week while I was on holiday, but I didn’t have chance to post it, it’s called ‘A Postcard from Paradise’… Dear Reader Greetings from the picturesque Portals Nous, on the South coast of Majorca, where the sun is...

Puppy Love

Its official, I’m in love with someone called Pierre. No, he’s not a sensitive and romantic Frenchman; he’s my new French Bulldog. Five weeks ago I a saw an advert for a litter of puppies in Bridgend, so decided to pay the pups a visit – just to have a look. I picked...

Crimewatch Roadshow

The night before last I woke up with a start, someone was in my house. As I lay there wondering what to do, I slowly realised that I didn’t actually have a burglar, I had in fact been dreaming. It’s unlike me to have disturbed sleep, usually my head hits the pillow...

Horsing Around with Food

Last week I was filming for Associated Press TV at a restaurant in Caerleon that has horse steaks on its menu. The Stuffed Dormouse started serving the dish after the horse meat scandal broke in the media. Co-owners, Gareth & Simone wanted to give customers the...

Back to the Future

This weekend I had a Marty McFly moment and went back to the past. Sadly I didn’t use the DeLorean to get there, just my everyday car, but I still had an exciting, at times daunting, and enjoyable experience. The adventure started when my former employer, ITV Wales,...

Women and Words

Everyone knows us women like a good gossip and most of us are pretty good at talking to our friends and family about important issues in our lives, but what about if we were asked to put those experiences down in writing? Well that was the task set out in the Kindle...

A Picture Tells a Thousand Words

After the excitement of Wales winning the Six Nations Championship on Saturday, yesterday I came back down to earth with a bump, by spending the day organising my office! Tedious though it sounds, I actually had a lot of fun sorting through photographs of my time at...
