All writers have to begin somewhere…

When a writer is asked about how they started writing, the answers are varied. However, if one thinks about it, all writers start their journey at a very young age. In school, we all have those creative writing assignments, even if we dread them. Recently, I was challenged to find a piece of writing from […]

The Toilet is Historic…

It’s amazing how time just seems to creep by. Before we realise it, months have whizzed by. I feel like that at the moment. So much is going on, and I’ve only just realised that I still haven’t finished my wonderful list of names for toilets. To my readers, I must apologise for this. In […]

Where can you find the “plumbing fixtures”?

The toilet is the most utilised room in the house. Some of us are fortunate to have more than one, which is fantastic when there is a large number of people cuing outside the door, yelling at you, telling you to hurry up because they’re busting to go. If your kids are anything like mine, […]

Descending into the Sewer…

Toilet humour has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. If I think about it, toilet humour has always been around. However, recently I find myself descending into the sewer and following the wastewater through the treatment plant and out to sea. Even as I write that last line, […]
