a few quick words about…

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

…punctuality. And hands up who thinks I’m going to moan about punters being late? You’re wrong, although the prat who called to announce himself and ask for final directions some eight minutes after his half hour booking should have started (and therefore roughly ten minutes after I was expecting him to call and announce himself) […]

hokus pokus…

Saturday, November 5th, 2016

And another timezone is upon us (sort of) even if my normally peaceful unawareness of this was scuppered by my forgetting to change the clock on the old hifi that serves as an amp for my radio alarm, resulting in my getting woken up at 7am on Sunday morning by Betty Harris. All things considered, […]

off to FrightFest!

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

Hello from Scarborough! Until the morning, anyway. As most will know it’s been a flying visit and unpack-do laundry-repack situation after spending a lovely and very lazy time in tourist central last week. Possibly the most effort-free part of London in which I’ve ever worked given that everything anybody could really need was pretty much […]

hot off the press – almost…

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Well, yes and no. There’s new photos! But not very many, thanks to my woeful cackhandedness in spending over an hour getting everything ready only to get started on the first set and knock the tripod over whilst blundering about without my glasses – as a result I am minus one Nikon lens (which wouldn’t […]

where did the month go?!

Friday, July 15th, 2016

And what a month that was! Events (including not one but two local food festivals), general laziness and an awful lot of football (fifty one games total, four of which helpfully obliged should I have needed another reason to be glad I’m not English) have kept me from posting, but nine hours of TV a […]

here comes summer (finally)…

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

And summer finally seems to have stuck it’s head above the parapet – I can report that earlier in the week I left the house wearing only one cardigan and no coat which probably means it was touching twenty degrees at least, although it all seems to have gone a bit pear shaped today. For […]

off again (phone included)…

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

To Edinburgh that is, and in just shy of an hours’ time – woohoo! Since I missed Glasgow FrightFest earlier this year, Dead By Dawn is my first festival of 2016 as well as my enduring favourite, not least because I get to stay in my favourite budget pod-cave, eat chips every day if I […]

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 […]

one more sleep!

Thursday, December 24th, 2015

And for once I am really really here rather than leaving it to the autopublish function, even if I did draft most of this whilst legged out on the couch at the weekend with a box of Matchmakers and my precious Radio Times close at hand. It’s been an odd week in the nicest possible […]

the snow is snowing…

Monday, December 14th, 2015

Well less of the snow maybe, but it sounds far more cheerful and festive than The Rain Is Pissing Down which would be closer to the truth. Plus the wind’s definitely blowing and having got all the travelling for now done and dusted I can continue to get on with weathering the storm, from a […]
