HouseGoesHollywood: Kristen begs forgiveness, Katherine loses custody, Demi dates NZ hottie

Wading through the murk so you don’t have to … KIRSTEN CHEATING SCANDAL: BEGS ROB TO FORGIVE HER Ah Kristen, you’ve been a naughty, naughty girl! Kristen Stewart has confessed to a fling with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders – who is married, with two kids. Nice one, Kristen. Classy. But it gets worse. Rupert Sanders […]

Scalpels are out! Halloween comes early

Ah, there’s nothing quite like the smell of burning flesh in a doctor’s surgery. Especially when it’s your own. After much badgering from my mother – she spotted a dodgy mole on my back during The Cruise – I finally went to a skin cancer clinic yesterday. At first, it was just my pride that hurt, when the doctor announced […]

Christmas in July – the recipes

It’s feeling very festive at HouseGoesHome this week. There’s a Christmas tree twinkling in the living room and lots of holly scattered around the house (ouch!). Even the bathroom is still sporting its Santa toilet seat cover. Why? Because it’s Christmas in July, of course! And I’m still celebrating. Last weekend, turkey sausages were on the menu – […]

Totally inappropriate

Earlier this week, I left the Sprogs in my osteo’s waiting room with a Spongebob Squarepants app on my iPad and a bag of Tiny Teddies to amuse themselves. I’m all class. I came out to discover Sprog 1 with her head buried in a book called “A Field Guide To Monsters”. She found it among the waiting room magazines. If there’s […]

8 things I didn’t learn last week

Life in a Pink Fibro wrote a great blog yesterday called 10 Things I Learned Last Week and I take my hat off her, because my week was more about what I didn’t learn. Hopefully it means I will eventually learn, but knowing me, probably not. Pink Fibro learned stuff like: “When comics and real life collide, […]

HouseGoesHollywood: The Mag I Bought This Week winner, “Aston’s a dick” and more!

THE MAG I BOUGHT THIS WEEK AWARD GOES TO … The celebrity mags have put Tom Cruise’s sperm under the microscope this week. Yep, they’re in a complete tizz (again) about whether Suri needs a paternity test. To avoid sticky legal complications, the mags are using phrases like “Outrage over Suri DNA bombshell” (New Idea), “Slurs over Suri’s real dad” […]

Happiness is a weed bouquet

I visited Pollyworld yesterday. It wasn’t such a bad place. Me and the Sprogs took the Polly Pockets on a beach holiday. They lazed about on hammocks on the Polly boat, drinking plastic cocktails and contemplating their next wardrobe change. There was lots of plastic pizza and ice-cream. It was pretty cool. I’d quite enjoy a holiday like that myself. Before I even considered huddling […]

Nancy no-fun

It’s been one of those weeks. A pouty, moochy sort of week. Not attractive on a 44-year-old. I feel all out of sorts and miz. When a friend texted a few minutes ago to say thank you for a lovely Christmas in July last night, I texted back apologising for the food being “up and down”. […]
