28 (OK, 29) days later…

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

And apologies for the mini hiatus – sorry! There has been plenty of fun to be getting on with rather than masses of Stuff to report – I binned the original opener about the advent of Spring after waking up on Wednesday to a blizzard and I have spent a fair proportion of the last […]

back to scarbados!

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

And a quick if belated update now I’m back from Birmingham – yay! It’s been a fairly tiring few weeks even with FrightFest – the demands of sitting in a cinema seat for four and a bit days cannot be underestimated, and the move to a new venue made it no less gruelling despite it […]

yoga at 1013 feet…

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

…or nearly that; sadly Friday’s blazing sunshine and soaring temperatures (that led me to skulk, fugitive-like in a shady corner of Cardinal Place with my packed lunch to avoid getting seriously frazzled) were nowhere to be seen at London Bridge at 8am on Saturday morning, meaning that the open-air viewing platform at the Shard was […]

sunshine on leith (and cork!)

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

And goodbye to the brrr-ing since Spring has very much sprung, not least in Scotland where the balmy weather took me quite by surprise – other surprises included an exceptionally comfortable new style bed at the budget-tastic Glasgow Ibis, a complete lack of rain after the Thursday night (always important when sitting in a cinema […]

brrr (midtown east)…

Sunday, February 9th, 2014

It’s five hours behind the UK, the sky is clear and air is dry and crisp as is the snow dusting the New York parks – yay! It’s also – predictably – very cold, but fortunately the erstwhile punters of Manhattan and the boroughs have rushed to my aid in providing warmth and comfort, not […]

brrr (scarborough)…

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

After a nice relaxing week (with occasional interjections of activity, but thanks to my number being absent from my Adultwork profile and the tireless support of good old Call Blocker Pro, the numpty-calls have been reduced to an entirely manageable level) I am now properly settled into being forty one and ‘in my forties’ rather […]

we do like to be beside the seaside(s)…

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Three different seasides in a week to be precise, and here I am just home from sunny (really!) Southend in time for my birthday – woohoo! Not just mine but that of Lord Byron (b.1788), Francis Bacon (b.1561) and also John Hurt (b.1940), whom along with Huey Morgan and my favourite of all Robert de […]

it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

A mid-week update, having newly arrived in my third London hotel of the last seven days and begun settling in nicely with the help of the usual local folk, who can always be relied upon for an enthusiastic welcome and especially at this time of year. And very nice they are too! The week began […]

and it’s no, nay, never (well, maybe)

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Well I started one ten days or so ago and then got waylaid by this and that and before we knew it it was time to pack up and find the passport and spare euros (plus dig out a coat to take for the first time in a good few months) before heading off to […]

lazy sunday afternoon…

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

So, a week or so on I can report that (and thanks in no small part to it’s many enthusiastic punters) York was a resounding success – yay! This is despite what more diplomatic folk would probably call ‘hotel issues’ (read: toothgrindingly slow and overpriced wifi, worse mobile signal and mattresses harder than a granite […]
