Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

Dancing on Ice LogoIt’s become a Sunday ritual for me now, to tune in to ITV at 18.25 to watch Dancing On Ice and I’m sure it’s become one for many others too.

Watching Chris Fountain, Suzanne Shaw, Gareth Gates, Zaraah Abrahams, Greg Rusedski and, before she was voted off last Sunday, Linda Lusardi has brought great entertainment to Sunday night television, so why not catch them live as they embark on a tour around the UK. The tour kicks off on the 4th of April 2008 in Sheffield visiting Nottingham, Newcastle, Birmingham, London, Liverpool and Manchester. If you don’t fancy the live version keep watching on Sunday’s, it’s all very tense now and the celebrities left have certainly become amazing skaters!

Tickets are available online through the Torvil & Dean Dancing On Ice Tour website starting at around £32.50.

Franz Porcelain Goldfishes

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

fz00425.jpgIts very easy to find gifts for cat and dog lovers but there is almost nothing out there for someone whose best friend is a goldfish! Being such a person I was excited to discover this tableware range from Franz Porcelain. I think its so cute and unusual. Anything from the range would make a great Christmas gift for a fish lover or anyone with quirky taste.

The cup and saucer with spoon is a great stand alone item or it can be bought as part of a tea set. This would look good on display but is suitable for everyday use as well. I also love the organic shape of the small goldfish vase and the goldfish tea pot. You can order any of these items online at

lg-caffeine-mug.jpgOk so its not quite time to think about Christmas presents just yet but I’ve found the perfect place to get gifts for…..well all of my friends. I’m really excited about finding this website I think I might be able to get my entire Christmas shopping done in one day. The site in question is called Think Geek and sells t-shirts, gadgets and other random stuff that would suit all types of geek…they even do stuff for potential geeks!

Some of my favourite items include “I void warranties” tshirt, the ,“I see fragged people” tshirt and the “I’m with genius” t-shirt. I’m sure that this will actually make people think you are smarter than you are. I also like the caffeine molecule coffee cup and the “There’s no place like” door mat, Even your mum might appreciate those gifts.
