forty four!

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

It’s that time again, or nearly anyway – the traditional birthday blog is a day early thanks to tomorrow’s newly planned activities (the original plan of staying in bed all day binge-watching Detectorists and finishing off the last of the Christmas chocolate has been postponed to next weekend) and since I’ve not got round to […]

i fought the floor…

Sunday, December 18th, 2016

…and the floor (nearly) won. It’s finally down – or at least most of it is – but dear God, the dust. To anybody who called in the days that followed and was faintly surprised to hear the late Leonard Cohen answering, unfortunately that was me. And more is to come since there’s still the […]

back from the smoke!

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

Well now I remember why I worked in Pimlico! Charming punters, peace & tranquility in abundance and only ten minutes or so walking through Mary Poppins-esque streets to get away from it when you’ve had enough. Having Tate Britain on the doorstep is never a bad thing when a chance to while away a couple […]

back to the beginnings!

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

The last couple of weeks have flown! Which for some bits in particular is no bad thing; I wonder if we could fast forward through the next four years too. I’m all packed up and ready to head off for Pimlico for an exercise in déjà vu that I’m vaguely apprehensive about; as a handful […]

stir it up…

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

Well a couple of weeks later and it’s safe to say that the coat is now firmly on! Everything is very pretty assuming you’re on the right side of the torrential downpours, which on Monday lunchtime I definitely wasn’t; see also my favourite Scarborough tree in the photo, which every year is happy to get […]

two years, two days and two hours…

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

It’s October! Well, just. Virtually every seasonal autumn milestone has slid by at some point this last week; the heating has been on, piles of rustly leaves have been kicked when no one was probably looking and I’ve turned back home to put a coat on twice after setting off for the flat and feeling […]

it’s here!

Sunday, July 31st, 2016

Or at least, the FrightFest 2016 trailer is, which is nearly as good until the real thing starts in just over three weeks – yay! Given that it’s a horror film festival there are (not entirely unsurprisingly) horror-bits in it so anybody overly squeamish, use your judgement. You’re here in the first place, so you […]

london calling…

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Well a scant few days later and a weekend of resounding successes, even if the majority of the spoils remain carefully wrapped and stashed in an appropriate bit of the fridge freezer to await my return from That London next Saturday evening. I have still yet to visit Malton without it raining, but walking around […]

on top of the world!

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

And the days are still flying by! Another day, another month, another tax year – slightly over four weeks ago I was on the plane home from New York after a big lunch at a Korean food-by-weight buffet, a (standing all the way) LIRR ride and a $30 excess baggage fee thanks entirely to the […]

Happy Easter! or time flies II…

Monday, March 28th, 2016

And hello! Apologies for radio silence – it really hasn’t been deliberate, but a break is a break and thanks to ten days away followed by the continuing of my foray into the world of serious home improvement upon my return I’ve barely sat in front of the computer for more than a few minutes, […]
