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 […]

it’s later than you think…

Monday, September 12th, 2016

…and not only are the nights drawing in (curtains shut at seven pm tonight) but it’s starting to feel decidedly backend-ish outside! This is in sharp contrast to temperatures on the Central Line a couple of weeks ago which were comparable to that of the earth’s core on my arrival for FrightFest’s opening night at […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

r in the month…

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

And as well as the above signifying the start of the phase when the Autumn wardrobe (including my beloved oxblood Doc Martens, which made the first of their many upcoming appearances at York Beer Festival the other weekend) becomes the first team rather than the chilly day backup, the return of the sudden burning desire […]

i’m still here – yay!

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

Well it’s been a lively few weeks to say the least. By way of a caveat I should say that this is now the sixth draft that I’ve sat down to write and not had time to finish – sorry! The (mostly) lovely weather from a fortnight or so ago now seems to be back […]

(belated) Happy Easter!

Monday, April 13th, 2015

And hello again Scarborough! As local folk will know, it’s been my first day back at my city pad after having spent the majority of the last three days lying on the floor eating Easter eggs and listening to OK Computer. After returning from the busiest London trip in some time (and with far and […]

bhaji on (ok, quite near) the beach…

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

And a quick hello from a small but adequately heated corner of SW1V, where I’m briefly camping whilst I wait for my hotel room to get the OK (quite what those responsible do to every room in the hotel that makes them all suddenly and simultaneously ready at 3pm and not a second before is a mystery […]

back on the rock!

Friday, January 9th, 2015

And hello from Douglas! It’s not sunny, although it was (yesterday) and it’s still far from the spectacle which greeted me on Wednesday afternoon; that is, one of driving rain, gale force winds and bent over palm trees at the airport. It was also the only time I have ever arrived and had to wait […]
