Friday 21st September.
As Sindy put the rubbish out she realised that she could no longer stand the sight of so many empty wine bottles. Things were going to change.
First thing in the morning she would ring the council and order one of those black recycling boxes with a sturdy lid.

” So I’m Tree, and this is my first time trying online dating. I’m looking for someone who shares my interests. I live a very simple, spiritual life. I’m just not into material possessions, structure or rules. I only eat foraged plants, I drink only fresh stream water that has crossed a minimum of two ley lines, I do yoga for two hours surrounded by my crystal collection every evening in my yurt that was handcrafted by Mongolian artisans.
Actually I just heard myself. I’m looking for someone with a good sense of humour and a strong sense of irony.”
Friday 7th September
The kids had gone back to school, Paul was at an office “Team Building” nightmare and Sindy had a ton of work to catch up on.
First of all though, she was going to spend some quality time admiring her empty laundry basket.
Friday 17th August
At last, Sindy had located her phone, but now she surveyed the contents of her handbag with dismay.
Still, she thought, it’s like Mary Poppins’ bag really, but with half eaten biscuits and broken Barbies instead of pot plants
and lamps, which is more useful when you think about it.
Friday 10th August
Allan and Sindy were their oldest friends, so when they had suggested yet another walking holiday “somewhere hilly and bracing”, Tony and Sylvia had given it several careful minutes thought before booking them all a weekend in Vegas.
It would be an awkward evening.
Friday 3rd August
Sindy was finding the school holidays a breeze now that she had her “Secret Hideaway Mini Fridge.” (patent pending)
Sliding back the painting revealed a cornucopia of cheering delights to lift the spirits of the most hard pressed mum.
Friday 27th July
Action Dave had been really looking forward to the Crazy Bumper Lads Holiday But if Hipster Ken didn’t stop murdering “Copacabana” he was going to take that guitar and ….
“Put it on a really high shelf?” supplied Allan, helpfully.
Have a great weekend folks!
Friday 20th July
The summer of 2018 was proving a difficult period for the Jollydollyshop Goths. They had been locked in a darkened room for weeks to avoid getting ” a healthy tan” (shudder) but salvation had arrived in the form of some black market Factor 1000 Sunscreen. Would our gloomy heroes be able to continue their rightful business lurking in the local record shops and graveyards? Only time would tell.
Friday 13th July 2018
Action Dave had once been swept up in the current of a passing Hen Party. They’d ended up in an 80s themed Karaoke bar in Bristol where he’d been forced to sing “Saving all my love for you” whilst wearing a tinsel wig. As Steve tried to coax him from behind the wall, Action Dave wailed,” You weren’t there man, you don’t know!”
Friday 6th July 2018
It’s holiday time, and the whole family is getting the caravan ready. Paul is checking there is enough beer and wondering where Sindy has put his sunglasses. The children are busily unpacking their suitcases and redistributing the contents around the house and garden and Paul’s mother is passive-aggressively stockpiling cleaning products. And what is Sindy doing? Sindy is wondering whether to start a small kitchen fire so they can stay in an all-inclusive hotel with separate rooms.
Have a great weekend folks!
Friday 29th June 2018
Allan has recently been dumped (FYI Gavin, it is NOT pedantic to use different coasters for hot and cold drinks.) Sindy has invited him to something called “Poldark Night” to cheer him up, but he doesn’t see how a programme about 18th century agricultural techniques and pilchard fishing will help.
Friday 22nd June 2018
Down at “The Broken Doll”, Landlord Allan was sensing that he had made a fundamental error when deciding to hold Blind Date Night.
Friday 15th June 2018
Inaction Man had sworn that he would get the flat clean and organise dinner whilst New Age Sindy was teaching her Crystal Healing Workshop at the Community Centre.
He really didn’t see what all the fuss was about; it had only taken two phone calls.
Friday 8th June 2018
“Of course, my Pearl has always slept through the night and eats anything you give her. Mind you, we only eat
homegrown organic seaweed, which is probably why she could swim at 3 months..”
There’s one in every playgroup.
Friday 1st June 2018
Rachel loved her new dress. If she kept very still in her bathroom she could remain undetected by her children for up to an hour.

In the cold light of a new day, Sindy hazily remembered agreeing to join the PTA at the pub last night. From now on, her life would consist of “What’sup?” messages about organic cupcakes and listening to Fantastica’s mother complain that no one had booked Idris Elba to DJ at the Year 6 Leavers’ Party.
Tony and Sylvia Brown run a very successful Waste Management company. People often think “waste management “ is a euphemism. This upsets Tony, as he sees himself as a pillar of the community.
Sylvia secretly likes it. She never fails to get a last minute hair appointment and they always have the best table in restaurants.

Sindy and Marie are taking their babies to the park. Betty is Marie’s first baby and she has packed 3 nappies, 4 sets of clothes, a changing bag and mat, teethers, teddy, board books, a portable bottle warmer, organic homemade babyfood and a cashmere cardigan.
Lily is Sindy’s second child. Sindy has brought a nappy, wipes and one of those lovely small bottles of wine the supermarket sells nowadays.
