Hello and welcome!

Thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to read my blog.

There are six categories of posts to explore. Here’s a brief explanation of what you can expect to find in each one…

Been there

It’s all about geography and contains photographs, reviews and thoughts about a number of the places I have visited, near and far.

Done that

This is where you can find creative ideas and see what I’ve done and how I’ve done it – from arts and crafts to recipes and decoration.

Headlines & Hoopla

I work in the media industry. I spend up to 10 hours a day in close proximity to the news headlines. As a journalist, I think a lot – about the state of the world, the issues, the problems, the solutions. This section is for information (and consternation!) related to the topics and trends du jour.

Hype & Hollywood

I watch movies. I watch TV shows. I also keep an eye on trends in popular culture and the strange world of show business. Famous people can be fascinating. Or infuriating. This section is for the glitz, glamour, grit and grime from Tinseltown and beyond.

Janine’s Journal

Reflection. Introspection. Contemplation. I do it all. I do it often. This section is my diary to the world, fuelled by the lessons of life and love. The title of each entry is borrowed from the lyrics of a song.

Janine’s Poetry

I have a notebook in my handbag. A notebook in the study. A notebook on my bedside table. Inspiration strikes at the strangest times, in the strangest places. Most often, it’s 2am on a Saturday. I like to be prepared. I enjoy a good rhyme, but most of my pieces are blank verse.

Happy trails, folks!
