The Cast

* ill add more to the cast as and when I feel necessary :)


I’m the main man. But obviously my life wouldn’t be the same without the others, so I’m giving them their own little spotlight. You’re all pretty familiar with me by now, but I’m the sort of person that if there is a hole, I’ll fall down it. You know the type I mean!!

Little Bean

My little sister; she picks me up when I need her to and indulges my slightly ridiculous freak outs… including the time where i called her because I was worried I had taken too much sleeping meds and wouldn’t wake up if I needed a wee!

Shes had to put up with some terrible things (she lost her hair for no reason when she was a teenager and then she was unable to walk on and off for a year for no apparent reason..) but she is a trooper, and I wish I was more like her. I swear she is my guardian angel.


My oldest and dearest friend, we grew up together and she makes me laugh whenever I need it. Currently patrolling London and aspiring to be a fashion buyer, she’s going places. She has the driest sense of humour, the best clothes and a wicked personality. I love spending weekends in London visiting fancy bars or hanging out and watching Cake Boss with her.


Thing One

Thing One is the oldest of my cousins, (also known as Ben, Sunshine or Poopie Pants depending how we are feeling). He thinks he is gorgeous, plays all sorts of sport and loves to screech “Loooooooooorrrraaaaa” in his best Some Mothers Do Ave Em voice.

Thing Two

Thing Two is slightly more of a dreamer. Also goes by the name of Sam or Derek (please note his photo face, he always does the Zoolander pose, and therefore earns the nickname Derek).

Ridiculed for wearing wife beaters and hanging with the girls, he is always breaking something and has his trousers low and pants hanging out, so much so we wedgie him regularly.


Pixie is the youngest and often mocked by her big brothers. Often called Emily or Little One, she has a puppy called Sunshine and was scared of men with beards as a kid.

Pet Geordie

Keeps me sane when I am feeling mental. Calms me when I am feeling wobbly. Inserts Geordie wisdom as and when she feels necessary. Always provides tea and cake…

The list goes on. The Geordie is my favourite Northern import.

    Thanks for reading and ‘liking’ my latest blog post! I LOVE the idea of a cast of characters and bucket list accompanying your blog! I also love everything British. Just thought I’d toss that in there for good measure (since it’s absolutely true). I even have Cadbury chocolates hoarded away right now in my work desk. (They don’t call me a guilty pleasure blogger for nothin’!)

    Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is great, as well as the content!

    Just linked to your blog and thought it proper etiquette to let you know just in case you think “who’s that weird guy linking to my blog?” Well I’m that weird guy that’s linking to your blog so now you know! Keep up the good work you’re an inspiration.

    Hey Tinkerbelle!

    Thanks again for the blog love. Looks like you’ve created quite the community here!

    We should do a podcast sometime…although I don’t know where you live, or how to do one, lol

    Take care of yourself,

    Hi Tink,
    Thanks for visiting my blog – yours is very interesting and it seems like the new one will be something of interest to me if involves anything with food. I will be following you now like the proverbial Captain Hook. Dont forget your pixie dust.

    P.S. Sorry about the job loss. that sucks. maybe it is time to start travelling

    Tink, thanks for stopping by SuccessThroughAuthenticity, so glad you liked my “what hiring managers should be asking” post! I love this “cast” page – very creative and thoughtful. I also love that you’ve published your bucket list, and are crossing things off! That’s definitely a success 🙂 Best Wishes, Christal

    Greetings Tink,
    I followed you over from “I”m on the Bandwagon” I find many interesting sites this way. I figure if someone like the same blog as I do, perhaps we will like each others as well. I write a Political/Social blog here in Maryland, USA so I don’t know how interesting you will find it but if you want to take a look, that would be great. I see so much pain and anguish in the US as well as around the world. I am a supporter of the OWS movement including all related groups around the world. I try to spread the word that the time for change is here. I have much deeper philosophical thoughts and I write because I love to. I would like to write something more frivilous and fun but right now; everytime I sit down to write, politics and corruption are all that seem to come off the end of my fingers.
    Anyway, I hope you check out the site and read some of the different things I write. I do much serious stuff but I also write some pretty irreverent and pointed humor now and then. Still political but more fun I think.
    Anyway, the last and most important thing is that I read a bunch of your pieces and I like your style. I admit that some of the topics are not my cuppa’ but some I really enjoy. Lastly; show my picture to Pixie and tell her I said BOO! I have a daughter named Emily Elizabeth. Not after HRH but she and my other daughter do often act as though they might be princesses. Shocker huh?
    So take care and feel free to keep in touch if you want to; or not if you don’t. Don’t worry about that Neverland thing. Take it from an old guy with a good eye. You will have no problem finding your Peter. You’re cute as a Speckled Pup and obviously a good person. Peter will come to your window one night and off you go. Good hunting and keep up the good work

      My Pixie is an Emily too 🙂
      Thank you for the kind words, I needed that little lift today (sometimes things come at the right time). I will definately head over and have a look see soon.
