Kissing. My contribution to Sunday Scribblings.

Kissing, snogging or pashing, whatever you call it, its fantastic. The moment just before your lips touch, the excitement, the anticipation, that moment of hesitation - all senses heightened, wonderful.

A few years ago my friend Kerstin ( and I owned an internet dating agency based on the word snogging. It was fun, enlightening and amazing to think that we affected other peoples lives, their futures and even had a little bit of responsibility for the arrival of some snogg babies.

My current kissing companion is my son Nathan. He loves blowing kisses, and planting real sloppy ones on my face. Normally just after porridge or just before he goes to sleep. He is currently afraid of monsters, but I've managed to convince him the only type of monster out there is the kissing monster. I plant kisses all over him and he giggles so much, until neither of us can do it any longer.

Kissing is great fun and I wish I was doing more of it!

Snogging is such a fun word. My grandaughters are great at blowing kisses.

I have never heard the words "snogging" or "pashing."
