Forty, that is – happy birthday to me! I am officially beginning my next decade, so yay! And to my blessed relief, I have been assured that this is no reason to start behaving like a grown up; just as well since I still intend to eat Dairylea and Chipsticks and I’ve just booked my […]

reasons to be cheerful…

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

I post, for a change, from the warmth and comfort of my bed. Well the current one, anyway. This particular bed (the 5th one I’ve graced in the last ten days – sacre bleu!) is in my specially arranged weekend-off-for-Frightfest* digs and roughly ten minutes walk from London Bridge; alternatively, five minutes if you believe […]

sluts, soup & the land of the vague…

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

Well it seems a long stretch since I padlocked the largest of my (many, and in various states of disrepair) suitcases and headed for the capital, but that’s possibly because it is – sorry! Two weeks ago this afternoon I was marching down Piccadilly with fellow sluts (more here from the Huffington Post, and I’m […]

the last of the irish roving …for now

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

So it wasn’t the fourth of July, nor was it eighteen hundred and six and the Blue Bus (or Aircoach, as they call it on the website) drove off rather than set sail, but I left the sweet cove of Cork last Saturday morning at roughly nine am bound for Dublin Airport and home, after […]

a quick wave from over (irish) seas…

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

And while I have a minute, a brief update from Derry! I caught my first glimpse of the place from my first Ryanair flight in ten years or so yesterday afternoon – having observed the airline’s many rules and checked in online to print my own boarding pass (fine for not doing so £60) I […]

one night in bangkok! (sorry)

Friday, July 27th, 2012

And I’m back, completely according to schedule and the catching up is well underway! And a busy week it’s turning out to be, which is making my now-pinkish and peeling (just a bit) arms even more of an embarrassment, but fortunately the punters of the north are a forgiving bunch and to be fair, thanks […]

under the sea…

Friday, July 20th, 2012

And sawadee kah from Bangkok (just) where I’m currently holed up in what is apparently (according to somebody, somewhere) the fifth best airport hotel in the world, from which part one of my journey home will begin in twenty four hours or so. It is currently just over a week since I set off from […]

back in a bit!

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Right, well I can’t hand-on-heart pretend I have either the time (or frankly the inclination) to type a lengthy post when Koh Samui beckons (woohoo!) any more than I have had for the last ten days or so whilst tearing about the land o’er the flood plains of Northern England like Speedy Gonzales, but suffice […]

as for the rest of the week…

Monday, June 25th, 2012

Well, after the huge excitement of the weekend (and I should add that this was topped off admirably well by Sunday roast and pudding with the lovely Alisha, who happens to be just around the corner from my Liverpool Street pad) it would have been easy to forget the fabulous fun and games of the […]

par deux…

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Further to my previous post I am extremely relieved to report that I have finally arrived and am nicely settled (if a little chilly) in Inverness – yay! I have learned several useful things over the last 24 hours, the most pertinent being If In Doubt, Fly (others being to not try and do Zumba […]
