it’s 2017!

Saturday, January 7th, 2017

…and back to work we go, after a lovely few days spent cosy on the big settee catching up on the Christmas films missed whilst away and busy-busy last week, not least with trips to the Museum of London, Borough Market for supplies and a special evening out to see Lazarus at the Kings Cross […]

1 more sleep…

Saturday, December 24th, 2016

It’s Christmas Eve already – yay! Where did the week go? Another thing that has gone is my Samsung tablet, which took a completely unspectacular tumble no more than a couple of feet onto a rug and refused point blank to work from then onwards. Since replacing the digitiser (which the screen is attached to, […]

hokus pokus…

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, […]

stir it up…

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 later than you think…

…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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

next stop Manchester! but not yet…

I’m back! Finally, after a delay at York en route cost me a full forty minutes and reminded me of why regular rail travel teaches one patience and tolerance for the bewildered and even the downright thoughtless – take a bow, people who place small bags in the lower luggage space so that passengers with […]

bring the noise…

Monday, July 20th, 2015

Monday morning again, and today brings something of a mini anniversary in that it was on this very day last year that I first came along to see my flat after spotting it on Rightmove, or the outside of it at least – I still have the photos in my phone! As most know, it […]
