- How could Wayne do it to his pregnant wife? Does he have no compassion or love for his family?
- why would he do it? hasn't he got enough?
- Where is the young girls morals and values?
- where is there conscience?
- What drives them to do such awful things?
I don't mean to sound mean but i believe in what comes around, goes around. I certain hope Karma comes around and bites these despicable footballers and their "lady" friends on the bum.
For my non-british followers here is what I m taking abouthttp://http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/news/943856/Wayne-Rooney-cheats-on-Coleen-again-with-21-year-old-hooker.html

- Firstly I heard a conversation between a chap and 2 women. He was explaining that he is looking for a apprenticeship for his 15 year old son as he is not letting him go to college as £30 EMA money is shit and he needs to start earning for his mum! a few thing struck me with this is were was the young lads choice in the matter? how irresponsible is the dad?
- Secondly I over heard 2 (i presume 16-17 year old) discussing the amount of money they were receiving for going to college and it was in the hundreds! I was gobsmacked since when did kids get paid to go to college? What really made my blood boil was that they talked about wasting there money on skateboarding, beer etc.
- Thirdly a young couple, or at least the young lass, had left her purse on the back seat of the bus, i called her to let her know. Both her and her chap was so polite and couldn't thank me enough. It really did warm my heart.

But my creative guardian angel must be watching over me because shes has sent me an email which has restored my confidence and creative juices going! The email was from a gentleman who was putting together an Anthology of poems to raise money to save The Odeon building in Bradford. He liked my poem and is publishing it in the Anthology! Even better line from my poem is going to be in the title of the Anthology and if that wasn't exiting enough I've been invited to the preview/launch with the possibility of giving a reading! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She has defiantly given me back my confidence and drive and now I am determined to get back on track with my writing.

- 3 Mills and Boons books for 99p; Untamed Italian, Blackmailed Innocent, The Arabian Mistress and Husband and Wife Reunion. Great for research purposes and also they are fantastic to read after a really heavy, hard going book.
- Collins Quotations 99p, great for flicking through for inspiring a letter or short story.
- Julia Cameron, The right to Write £1.50. A great book of inspiring essays on writing another one of my coffee table books. Great to dip in to when I have a few spare minutes.

- Baltimore Blues- Laura Lipman i bought this for two reasons. Firstly because one of my favourite songs is Hungry Heart by Bruce Springsteen and there is a line that goes as follows 'got a wife and kid in Baltimore Jack', ever since then i always wondered about Baltimore. Secondly in an episode of The Wire I saw Det Moreland reading a Laura Lipman book,, so I thought I'd give her a try.
- The No1 Ladies Detective Agency - Alexander McCall Smith- mainly because I have never read a novel set in Africa! Can you believe that?

- Hidalgo DVD a purchase from Playtrade. I chose this because it stars Viggo Mortensen, who i just love. He is what I'd class as an old school mans mans. The kind of guy who never worries what he looks like, too busy doing manly pursuits!
- Enchanted DVD another purchase from Playtrade. I chose this because it stars the lovely Patrick Dempsey aka McDreamy. Patrick Dempsey has to be the most handsome actor around these days. He has one lucky wife.
After reading this post I would like to reassure readers I don't just buy DVDs because the leading man is yummy... well not a lot!
