time flies (and so am I!)

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Well where the time went is anybody’s guess, but it’s finally time to pack the travel kettle and Yorkshire tea bags since my New York trip is only days away – woohoo! A very quick (and frankly rushed) update for now, although hopefully since I have a full six days in Manhattan next week I […]

home & hibernation…

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016

And it’s peace and quiet all the way here some two weeks after a hugely fun few days encompassing everything I like about a London visit – the highlight being a cinema trip complete with fish and chips in Leicester Square, normally my mainstay in August between FrightFest films but the very un-wintry temperature made […]

back in that london 2016!

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

And we’re already into February! No real sign of winter yet, although you would never have known this from the temperature within the hotel room last week on my first of many at least two outcalls in 2016 which could have hosted a Bikram yoga class without any extra heating being required. After a similar […]

next stop manchester (again)…

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

Hello! And apologies for tardiness but it’s been a bloody cold week as well as a mad busy one, and finding the time to sit around in front of the laptop rather than moving about getting on with the odds and sods now that the pre-Christmas run up is well and truly underway has been […]

and we’re off!

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Although not without a few hiccups leading to a couple of days delay, an afternoon of intensive IKEA flatpack construction that nearly resulted in the skip up the road filling up far faster than anticipated (in the event, the beneficiary was the till at the local off licence) and no less than nine fourteen-or-so hour […]

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 […]

(still) no pain no gain…

Saturday, August 24th, 2013

A quick update from my compact and bijoux semi-pod hotel room, mainly for those who have asked about the 40th (previously 30th, but got sidetracked) Birthday Tattoo… Well the pain isn’t quite over yet as sadly an unexpected technical hitch (not on my side I hasten to add, having not only spent the whole of […]

good day sunshine…

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Or it was at least, since for the third time today the Scarborough skies have gone from bright light to dark grey in a matter of minutes causing me to hurry back from the indoor market and have to finish my 99 in the front room. Hey ho. A slightly later-than-planned update, but the last […]

me and mrs carter…

This evening’s post comes courtesy of Virgin West Coast’s onboard wifi – I am winging my way to Glasgow as we speak, and having survived the freezing temperatures on the platform at Preston especially, the final leg is well underway and touchdown ought to be in half an hour or so… Today’s most exciting news […]
