I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… She-Ra

Or ‘Sheila’ as a younger version of myself originally misheard. Yes, you can imagine my Mother’s amusement as her young daughter ran around the living room squeaking about how she was now SHEEEEEIIILAAAAAA, the Princess of Power. The 1980s really was a golden age of overblown children’s television and I am so glad that I grew up with it. Hopefully, … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Louise Wener & Sleeper

Or ‘Cat-Mo’ as she has affectionately become known between my Mother and I, as if she were a J-Lo style mega ‘sleb’ rather than a proper, genuine, serious writer type from Wolverhampton. Needless to say, those familiar with the many writings of Caitlin Moran, will know that any seriousness is concealed within a heavy layer of piss-taking – which is … Read More
