About Me

I’m Vicky, a former music journo, current PR copywriter hailing from Liverpool.  I used to live in Brum, hence the title ‘9.20 from New Street’, but have re-adapted this blog to suit another purpose.

Through the power and wonderfulness that is Slimming World I have managed to shed a whole bunch of El Bees.  However, things have stalled somewhat.  Got a boyfriend, got made redundant, moved back home to Liverpool from Birmingham, enjoyed being taken out and wined and dined a little too much has put a few El Bees back on. 

So now, with a little help from my friends and rellies, i’m getting back on the final furlong. Sometimes it may be hard, sometimes I may fall off the wagon, but if I have this little piece of cyberspace to keep me focussed, plus some/any readers and commentators along the way pushing me on, I think i’ll do fine.

A size 12 proper girly-girl dress paid for by me dad says I can do it!

Feel free to join me…

  16. Hi, i saw your comments on Hanbury Vale Southern Fried Chicken breasts. I personally had a terrible experience with them, reported them to Trading Standards as they ignored my letter regarding their “Satisfaction Guarantee” and was informed they’ve probably committed a Criminal Offence.

    • Hi Dean, I think that counts as ‘libel’ unless you say what your experience was and how they’ve flouted their ‘satisfaction guarantee’. If you can elaborate, that would be great, thanks!

    • And PS, either somehow you know I’m the world’s biggest Back to the Future fan, or it’s just an amazing coincidence!! Very very jealous of your photo with Fantastic Mr Fox!!
