Well, here we are again. With apologies to those not too fussed about keeping up with political developments, and whom presumably are not interested in either the continued erosion of personal liberty, nor the very early stages of the introduction of the much reviled ‘Swedish Model‘ (or at least the real possibility of a version […]

First and foremost, and as some will already know, unforeseen circumstances have led me to cancel my trip to St Helier; I cannot and will not go into detail, but the combination of events here, the unexpected (and lets face it, less than conducive) weather conditions travel-wise plus some insider rumblings from the island itself […]

a quandary…

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Briefly put, I find myself today at the centre of an unexpected dilemma; having just begun my newest mince pie acquisitions from trusty Marks and Spencer (old school, rather than the puff pastry version which I will continue to view with suspicion until I am advised otherwise) I find that whilst the rich, crisp and […]

Well I’m tired.

Well time to pack up and I am happy to report that my Glasgow trip has been lots of fun, at least in the impromptu mini-break sense of the word! Having followed a visit to the Gallery of Modern Art with a pot of Darjeeling at the Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed Willow Tea Rooms before spending […]

Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night are out of the way, and since this means we can now legitimately start looking forward to Christmas I have today celebrated, by getting started on the first of many mince pies and organising my appointment times over the festive period – anyone who was planning a visit, do read on!

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Well having (naively, perhaps) anticipated some peace and quiet prior to my Glasgow and Edinburgh visits, I have been somewhat caught on the hop this week and a very busy time has been had; the combination of the end of school holidays and the end of the month payday is a powerful one indeed, it […]
