Our dog, known variously as Hairy P, Four-legged Pebble, Pog and Minnie Mitchell is quite a hound. She was born in a stable in August 2000, has had a road traffic accident, a drug-related misdemeanour, has stolen innumerable cakes and sausages, knew I was pregnant before I did and has a spidey sense for all soft furnishings. She barks wildly at Countryfile as she thinks the sheep are ALL IN THE ROOM WITH HER and despite being over 100 in dog years still flirts with a dog called Des from down the road. If you’d like to read more about Minnie pop over to Standard Issue.
This online women’s magazine is just a few months old, contains frank articles about everything from crochet to IVF and its writers include the lovely Chetna Makan from last year’s Great British Bake off who shares original recipes, Jess Fostekew whose ‘hoovering’ column about eating out is excellent and Sarah Millican. I’m super honoured to be writing for this ace publication and it’s a bona fide antidote to many women’s publications that offer little more than discussions of ‘beach bodies’ and the latest vertiginous heels. It has substance and wit. Oh and if you like any of the articles you might find over there a ‘recommend’ click can really help us to know if our content is being enjoyed.
