i’m worth a million in prizes…

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

And the month has flown again, even without the help of the clocks going forward at the weekend (and true to form I forgot to change my old radio-alarm one until it was far too late and didn’t get up on Sunday until it was past 11 o’clock and thankfully, almost lunchtime). Twice this week […]

stir it up…

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

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 […]

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 […]


Friday, November 21st, 2014

And hello from the warm and peaceful world of slothville (and for somebody who made such a palaver about winding up the travelling and sticking to my new close-to-home base instead, I seem to be posting an awful lot from hundreds of miles from it) or more specifically, curled up on a big pink sofa […]

all the leaves are brown…

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

So, two mostly sunny autumn weeks in and as the first few visitors (including the handful of already-returnees) will know things are settling down nicely, although any potential moments of free time have provided me with ample distraction in the form of mislaid keys and an ensuing crash course in lock changing, a blown lighting […]

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 […]

i’m here!

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

Well I’ve been terribly lax once again, I know, but after an enormously tiring few weeks (and an even more chaotic one to follow shortly) I can now announce the provisional start date for the new Scarborough incalls will be Monday 6th October – yay! The time since the last update has been spent packing […]

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 […]
