things that go bump!

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

And following a delightful weekend watching horror films in Edinburgh, I’m back …for a week, before heading to Glasgow, and er, Edinburgh before making my way down to London. Yes, I accept that I could have timed things better (although I suspect the people who own East Coast trains are happy). Disembarking a train at […]

they’re hee-re…

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Well I am, anyway – freshly returned (albeit knackered and slightly bog-eyed) from four days of happy camping at Filmhouse in Edinburgh for mega horror-fest Dead By Dawn, having pottered up by train on yet another sunny day for my first proper geek-out in ages. Yay! Strange though packing a bag containing no work stuff […]

you take the high road…

…and I’ll take the 1135 First Scotrail service to Inverness (calling at Haymarket, Kirkcaldy, Perth, Dunkeld and Birnam, Pitlochry, Blair Atholl, Newtonmore, Kingussie, Aviemore and Inverness). A surprisingly busy train it is too, and I post having created an Area with coat, Kindle and knitting placed carefully about the periphery of my table seat in […]

i got 99 problems but a fish ain’t one…

Firstly, and as so many have now asked, above is a picture (of one at least) of my oft-mentioned piscine companions; Chubby Chops is a brand new addition to the household, and is settling nicely in Tank 2 having shrugged off a touch of whitespot from the pet shop. He enjoys eating, digging, and getting […]

and i love to live so pleasantly…

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

…even though it may not be a life of luxury (although a quick peep inside my gloriously full refrigerator could possibly form the basis of a persuasive argument to the contrary) I am enjoying a busy yet leisurely few days, until today having shamefully not shown my face at the gym since last Sunday (mostly […]

i’m a road runner, baby…

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

And thirty eight minutes or so after nine, soaked to the marrow (along with fifteen hundred or so others) I did it! In fact technically I sort-of did it twice since it took me nearly an hour to walk back afterwards, whereupon the sun came (and remains) steadfastly out and blue skies abound, after two […]

you know it’s a bank holiday when…

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

…the pervasive chill filling the apartment emanates not from the open windows, the comfortingly well stocked fridge-freezer nor even from my reaction to the eleventh ‘hey babe’ text message of the weekend; in time honoured BH tradition the combi boiler has decided to join the rest of the nation in kicking back for a bit […]

keep on running…

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Before I do anything else, and bearing in mind I have an impromptu mad dash to That Sheffield tomorrow for a catch-up dalliance en route to my original destination of Coventry on Thursday (and have to pack!), I need to thank the people who have already sent Race For Life donations via Paypal since I […]

let them eat cake…

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

This beginning of today’s post is brought to you once again by East Coast trains (or their free Wifi at least); my second London visit of the year has sadly drawn to a close and after a final exciting day encompassing swimming, museum-going, shopping and the second visit of the week to a Yo Sushi […]

full steam ahead!

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

And spring has most definitely sprung at last – yay! The sun is still shining outside my windows at seven pm, Scarborough’s lovely daffodils and primroses are all in full bloom amongst the woodlandy-bits and I, ever the optimist, have left home without a coat on two separate occasions this last week for the first […]
