Last Sunday, smelling of smoke from our afternoon bonfire and waiting impatiently for our Chinese, we stuck the telly on and watched ‘Click’. For those of you who haven’t seen it, here’s a really quick run down of the plot of the movie: Guy gets new TV remote. New TV remote not only works on the TV but his whole life! He can literally pause his wife mid-moan, turn down the volume of his barking dog, fast-forward, rewind…you get the idea. *Spoiler alert* Discovering that he…

When I first met Jack, I didn’t let him see me without make-up for about 2 months. Like that scene from Bridesmaids, I used to sneak out of bed early so I could re-apply it before he woke up!
