Queenie & Wildblood 27033+ steps for Red Nose Day

This year I’ve has been stepping up towards better mental health by taking on the 10000 steps a day challenge. Experiences not things. Blisters not boredom. Its been a massive change for me and one that living with BPD can make a little, well, lets just say interesting to say the least. Depression and the symptoms of BPD can often make you feel like you are battling through concrete just by getting out of bed in the morning so walking 10000 steps has been, as Salt’n’Pepper would put it, a chance to push it.

And so all this activity got me thinking. Why not make the most out of my new found love of putting one foot in front of another? So on Friday 24th March I’ll be walking from Rottingdean’s White Horse Hotel to The Big Beach Cafe at Hove Lagoon and, deep breath, back again for Comic Relief. Dressed in suitably Red Nose-d clothing. Shaking my collection tin. Accompanied by my Queen. With a stop off at The Tempest Inn for refreshments and a PE kit spruce up. Okay walking 12.8 miles may not seem a lot to many of you marathon addicted beauties out there but to me its a big step. So any pennies or pounds you have going spare please do donate today and help me fundraise to help people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and across Africa.

To donate please click here. To encourage please follow us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Every comment, hashtag, retweet and share helps.

Our Comic Relief walk will start at 9.30am at The White Horse Hotel, Rottingdean and we aim to be at The Tempest Inn, 159-161 Kings Road Arches at 11am* (outbound) / 1.30pm* (return)  and the Big Beach Cafe, Hove Lagoon Kingsway 12pm* with our collecting bucket. Come join us with your donations / laughs.

*Arrivals / departures are approximate based on weather, blisters, gossiping, wind factor and Queenie’s mincing times.

#TBT We had a Secret Disco

As we celebrate our 25th year of being DJing and you-know-what partners, its hard to believe so many wiggles have been had in such a short space of time – and all because of you dear reader. One of our proudest moments was releasing this gem of a compiliation. Secret Disco on Crazy Diamond ticked every one of our house boxes and we’re proud to say it sounds as fine today as it did way back in 2007 when we first developed the idea. House of the fine kind – just as we’ve always hoped to deliver throughout the past twenty five years. Like we do.

Various Artists Secret Disco Compiled by Kate Wildblood and Queen Josephine Crazy Diamond. Buy it now here.Yes buy not steal. Remember kids, home taping is killing music.
