Mr Wrong gets a review!

Thank you for a lovely review of my blog Mr Wrong. It was read and received with much gratitude and happiness. x


I initially came across twistnpout’s/mariefriddle’s blog after reading her beautiful post “The Conditions of Unconditional Love.”- A MUST READ!


Lovely Blog Award

The second award  came from Daniella at dingdongitsmrwrong. While I’m in a very healthy, supportive, loving relationship with my husband, I realize this is certainly NOT the case for millions of other women (and men). Daniella is on a crusade to raise awareness on choosing the right partner and recognizing the warning signs of a bad (poisonous) one. She does this with humor and wisdom and not with sweeping, hateful rants about the male population.

I love how she wants to hear both sides of the stories from men AND women and also stresses the importance of showing Mr. Right the appreciation he deserves. KUDOS to Daniella, she certainly deserves the Lovely Blog Award!



Melvin: Chronicles of a Player- A MUST SEE!

Melvin: Chronicles of a Player feature film  is finally here! This thoroughly entertaining film, directed by the talented Award Winning Director Lawrence Coke, is the centrepiece of BUFF (British Urban Film Festival) 2012 and premieres on 12th October at Congress House  23-28 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS.

Melvin: Chronicles of a Player  features our very own Mr Loose Eye, Melvin!


Melvin Cartright is your typical self-confessed womaniser, self-assured, cocky and arrogant, who truly believes he’s God’s gift to women.  When Melvin isn’t chasing every female in sight, he’s pursuing a music career with his twin brother Martin under the watchful eye of his manager Olumuyiwa Dave Akimunde.  So, when a documentary crew seeking to make a fly on the wall documentary about womanising women approach the twins manager about featuring Melvin in it, he agrees thinking it will be great publicity for his label and his various other artists. Little does he realise that the only thing they will be documenting is Melvin’s life disintegrating before their eyes, and just when they think it can’t get any worse, it does in the form of the W.A,M., Women Against Melvin! Will Melvin learn the error of his ways and win the woman of his dreams, or will his various conquests in the form of the W.A.M. make him pay the ultimate price?

This is a laugh out loud stylistic black and white mockumentary told with exquisitely entertaining writing style and shot with impeccably precise detail with have you talking about Melvin and Mr Loose Eyes long after the film is over.

Love is…Like stepping off a cliff- reblogged from Diaryofacupcake

Read Diaryofacupcake Love is…. Like stepping off a cliff. Would love to hear your thoughts. Has anybody been here?

Diary of a Wonderful Geekette

You stand there, teetering on the edge wondering whether or not to take the leap.

You’re teetering because you are unsure, scared (after all what if you’ve read the signals wrongly), maybe you have some unfinished business before you can jump.

But what of the person standing next to you?

They may be just as scared and confused as you. Scared about jumping in case they get hurt again and confused because of the mixed signals they are getting from you and don’t know how to suppress their own growing feelings for you.

I’ve been listening to a song recently called ‘In Whatever Time we Have’ from Children of Eden. It’s got some very powerful lyrics and totally akin to standing on the edge of a cliff wondering whether to jump…

‘If at times we are afraid, with so little to believe in. It’s alright to feel afraid, I will…

Lovely Blog Award :)

ImageThank you Jilataroo for awarding me with my very first “Lovely Blog Award!” Your comment, “These are brilliant. I just realised I hadn’t followed your blog to email. I’m on top of it now! The last sketch pretty much defines my ex husband and the first but my current Mr Wrong isn’t up there yet.” means a lot to me. Thank you for your support for my new book Mr Wrong.

Please check out Jiltaroo’s blog at

Jiltaroo s fantastically amazing.. She is  a writer, artist and above all survivor. I admire her strength, creativity and wisdom especially having survived abusive relationships in her past. Check out A Letter of Reason at a touching account of how her father tried to stop her moving in with her violent boyfriend Peter at 19 years old and how she learned the hard way- through experience. A warning to all parents who suspect their child is involved in an abusive relationship.

She also as a lovely son called Felix who writes too!

My lovely blog nominees are….


Having had a few Mr Wrong girlie nights at mine and judging by the feedback I have had, it seems that everyone, at some stage of their lives, has encountered one of these Mr Wrongs or “Mr Wrongun” as my Dad likes to say! Below are some sketches drawn by the very talented Amde Anbessa-Ebanks

If you want to go ‘Mr Wrong Spotting’, a bit like bird watching without the binoculars, or like most, want to simply avoid Mr Wrong simply use the key below to IDENTIFY and AVOID!


Mr Loose Eye

‘Baby it’s all about you.’

Appearance: Large google eyes and gormless expression. Often has his mouth open and has a tendency to dribble.

Movement: Shifty revolving eyes and a revolving head that can turn a full owl-like 360!

Typical Phrase:
“I’m just looking at her T-shirt!”
“What were you saying?”
“Why are you always accusing me!”

Tone of Voice: Soft and reassuring.



Mr X Factor

“That’s what my ex use to say.”

Appearance:wears a permanent pained expression as if he’s had an unfortunate encounter with a liquor of laxatives.

Movement:Walks slowly with shoulders stooped; he’s a broken man trapped in a time warp

Typical Phrase:
“I’m over her.”
“She needs me.”
“Me and my ex use to go here.”

 Tone of Voice:  Monotonous and whiny.



Mr Parasite/Emotional Vampire

“YOU made me do it!.””

Appearance:  Looks shiny on the outside. Looks are irrelevant as they are deceiving but if you look close enough, you can see the hooked claws, translucent skin and sharp fangs beneath his smiling mouth.

Movement:  Walks as if he is drained of all energy before feed and buzzing with excitement after.

Typical Phrase: 
“I’m not blaming you but it’s your fault.”
“We need to talk.
You’ve upset me again.”

Tone of Voice:  Will use any tone of voice necessary to get required ‘emotion’ across. Often has an accusatory/defensive tone.


Mr Workaholic

“I can’t, I’ve got to……”

Appearance: Small tired eyes, a tense expression. Rarely smiles. Often has a throbbing vein located at right temple.

Movement: He dashes about like a bolt of lightning attending to his work needs but slobs about at home.

Typical Phrase:
“I’m working late again honey.”
“In early tomorrow.”
“I can’t make it I’m working.”

Tone of Voice:  Busy, rushed and tense.



Mr Serial Liar

“Honest to God babe!”

Appearance: Not everything that glitters is gold.

Movementt: Has a shifty rat-like nervousness about him. His movements are quick and sharp as he ducks and dives as if dodging a bullet. Often coughs to cover up his lies, and scratches his head and nose. Prone to twitching and head turning as he scans the area for trails of his lies.

Typical Phrase:
“Honest babe.”
“It’s not you, it’s me.”
“You’re the only one for me.”

Tone of Voice:  Amateur– changes pitch and tone frequently. Professional-has a slow and steady reassuring tone.
