After writing articles with a staunch anti-social media stance, I have now felt compelled to write about a circumstance where social media is allowing information which perhaps would have been kept from scrutiny out into the public domain.
Ashya King is a five year old boy from Portsmouth with a brain tumour. If you live in the UK, it is very unlikely that you will have not seen or heard about the young boy and his parents’ plight.
Social media has been used at every turn first by Hampshire Police to help locate Ashya, and now by supporters of the King family trying to ensure that the family is allowed to be together and seek the treatment for Ashya which they believe will be best for him.
There is a good chance you will have heard the name Si Cranstoun, he is on the kind of upward trajectory most musicians can only dream of, with supporters such as Terry Wogan and Chris Evans!! But it hasn't come easy, so we were really excited to get the chance to chat to him about all things music!!
If you are anything like me, and have spent a lot of time at airports waiting for that delayed flight - that one you’re long lost aunt is on, when you really could have been doing something far more interesting instead! Do not fear - help is on hand in the form of Flightradar24,
Recently the spectre of gluten free has reared its head in my household, and after spending A LOT of money buying cakes, treats and biscuits which were all wheat and gluten free, and my husband (who is the possible allergic, intolerant or celiac amongst us) saying YUCK to pretty much everything, I knew the only thing to do was to get baking and see what treats could be made at home!
These are my successes - the failures have been too many and too many shocking to share!
Having read the other books in The Carnal Set, when we got an email from author Lottie Winter to say there was another instalment in the Victorian Dark Erotic book series, I felt compelled to read Lizzie too, and I am pleased to say that one again Lottie really has a grasp of the Victorian era taking great pride I am sure in researching her use of words to fit perfectly.
