Swimming shenanigans!

Easing into the sea, right foot first, thanking the Lord that I had had the sense to bring my ‘sea shoes’, I negotiated the stony bed with confidence. The water was cool to say the least but sure doesn’t it get warmer, the longer you’re in it. Walking out up to [...]

To shag or not to shag, that is the question!!

What the feck!!  You couldn’t make it up...57 years of age and it’s like being a teenager again.  ‘Don’t you be sneaking any boys into your room or there’ll be consequences’.  Except now there would be legal consequences, as it’s actually against the law to have sex with someone from another [...]

Listen to Karen tell the story... As much as I love this wonderful sunny weather, it can play havoc with the makeup, for us aul ones.  Sure, isn’t it an awful nuisance when you go to the trouble of pencilling in your eyebrows, only to find, [...]

A tale of two titties and a gaudy pink sunchair

Listen to Karen tell the story... I had one of those routine mammograms last week, you know, the booby squash, where they basically stick your tits, one at a time, into what could only be described as 'a clamp' and literally squash the bejeysus out of [...]

Hairy Mary Moments

Listen to Karen tell the story... Had a trip to physiotherapy last week. Jaysus I might as well have been going on a date, with all the preparation. In fact the last time I had gone to this particular physiotherapist, I ‘was’ going on a date. No, not with [...]

Had a great girls night out recently, with the girls of course.  There were eight of us in total and we had booked a Burlesque night about 10 miles away.  I was fierce excited.  Sure I’d always wanted to go to one of those.  The closest I’ve ever come to that, [...]
