Suck it up, spread ’em, get it done!

The vast majority of women hate it to the extent that 1 in 5 of us ignore the dreaded letter that arrives like clockwork once every three years (or once every 5 years if you’re over 50). You start to forget about the letter which is now at the bottom of a very large pile of other correspondence you’re choosing to overlook until, lo and behold, you receive a reminder. Then another and another after that. It seems the NHS would like you to take their invitation to participate in a potentially life-saving procedure seriously. Share the...
Film review: How To Train Your Dragon 2

Film review: How To Train Your Dragon 2

It was with excitement and trepidation that Craigy Boy and I donned our 3D glasses last night to watch the latest animated offering from Dreamworks, How to Train Your Dragon 2. Excitement? Because the first instalment blew us away. Trepidation? For the very same reason. When it comes to Hollywood blockbusters and their sequels ’tis rare indeed that lightening strikes twice and as such we were bracing ourselves for some dragon sized disappointment. Share the...
The kindness of strangers

The kindness of strangers

Which character attribute do you prize most in the people with whom you associate?Honesty? Loyalty? Compassion? Patience? Generosity? All worthy candidates, beyond a shadow of a doubt. But for me, one character trait stands heads and shoulders above the rest: KINDNESS. Pure, simple, unadulterated kindness. The effects of even the smallest act of kindness can be significant and far-reaching. Think back to the last time that you were the recipient of a selfless act. Seriously, take a few seconds right here, right now. How were you feeling before and how did you feel after? Chances are that small act of kindness changed the very course of your day.     Share the...
Are you a hoarder or a chucker outer??

Are you a hoarder or a chucker outer??

Now there’s a question I bet you didn’t think you be asked on a Friday morning or any other morning for that matter! But it’s a question I’ve been meaning to ask you over the last couple of weeks since I, the Ginger Warrior, have been faced with the keep/dispose of dilemma in both my professional and personal life. As you know, this summer (in 11 days time to be exact – not that I’m counting…) I leave behind the crazy, exhausting and oft times rewarding world of teaching after 10 years of moulding the minds of the future. In the course of a decade of education you tend to accumulate one almighty giant mass of paper and a couple of weeks ago, when it came time to clear out my life’s work I was, quite frankly, overwhelmed. Where to start? What to preserve? What to throw away? What if I dispose of something and then 6 months down the line regret the rashness of my judgement? I was getting nowhere fast, paralysed by indecisio Share the...
Chocolate Caramel Wafer Slice

Chocolate Caramel Wafer Slice

Greetings Warriors of the World and what another glorious morning it is here in Englandshire!  Then again, ’tis always a glorious day when I’m sending some chocolate love your way, some CHOCOLATE CARAMEL WAFER SLICE love to be exact.  This right here is a Ginger Warrior original concoction! YEAH BABY!! Well, when I say original I’m aware that this is a variation on a theme and that there are already hundreds of chocolate slice recipes out there but I’m pretty sure my combination of crispy yet chewy Tunnocks caramel wafers and crunchtastic rocky road choccie biccies is a first. I am prepared to stand corrected. Share the...
