American Playboy – The Hugh Hefner Story Review

Mention Hugh Hefner to pretty much anybody and they’ll immediately conjure up images of a man surrounded by beautiful ladies at the Playboy Mansion. However, there’s a lot more to Hefner judging by the “American Playboy – The Hugh Hefner Story” series on Amazon Prime. Set over 10 episodes, this docu-drama gives us an insight… Read More

When Life Knocks You Down – Do A Burpee!

Just over a year ago I walked into my neighbour’s garage for my first ever personal training session. In the past, just the thought of exercise was more than enough for me plus with a lean frame – or skinny beanpole look – I never actually felt unfit or the need to be fitter. In… Read More

Control The Controllables

Everywhere you look these days there are motivational quotes being posted. These quotes are like a modern day horoscope but with Mystic Meg being kicked in to touch by various skill levels of so called life coaches and everyday Joes. You can’t go on Twitter without MondayMotivation, TuesdayThoughts or WednesdayWisdom. I actually don’t mind seeing… Read More

Attack Of The Crohn’s – Part 4

It’s now been over 12 months since I last saw a consultant regarding my Crohn’s diagnosis and bowel resection operation back in December 2015. At that particular appointment I was told I’d be seen every six months which hasn’t been the case. I suspect that this is not because of an oversight by The NHS… Read More

Ricky Gervais Humanity Review

On 17th February 2017 Ricky Gervais announced dates for his Humanity world tour. I hadn’t realised he’d already released UK dates when checking tickets for Cardiff on Ticketmaster. I expected the gigs to be sold out but luckily there were tickets available for The Cardiff Motorpoint Arena. So on 6th March we were on the… Read More

Foxy Bingo & The Great Affiliate Swindle

I hadn’t planned to write about affiliate marketing when I decided to restart this blog, but then something happened that requires comment. It’s something that has been largely ignored by the “performance” side of affiliate marketing but it’s worthy of note for a number of reasons. Firstly because of the actions taken by a merchant… Read More

Going Coffee & Caffeine Free

The last cup of coffee I drank was on the 21st December 2015. I remember it well as it was my most craved after cup of coffee after enduring the hospital version of the beverage for the previous few days. Little did I know at the time that I was going to make it my… Read More

A Merry Christmas Balloon Story

One of the things I learnt quickly about being in hospital is that having a sense of humour gets you through a lot of the experience. They do say laughter is the best medicine, and granted it does help, but I can also tell you that it’s not as good as a morphine drip. Laughter… Read More

Goodbye To Mr Grumpy

I can’t remember the first person who referred to me as Mr Grumpy, but I think it started when I was affiliate blogging here on One Little Duck. Now being called a name by peers/friends/acquaintances can be taken in one of two ways – either it can be taken as an insult or it can… Read More

Attack Of The Crohn’s – Part 3

According to The NHS website, “Crohn’s Disease (CD) is a long-term condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system”. There’s no known cure but it can be managed. So after being diagnosed with something like this there’s naturally a lot of questions going through your head: What happens next? What can I… Read More
