Monday, April 25th, 2011

And a happy Easter Monday to all now that the main festivities are over with, although if the word around the campfire is to be believed many folk in civvy street are taking these coming three days as holiday, and therefore won’t be back in the office for another week thanks to events on Friday […]

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Well, as the karma fans among us might have reasonably expected following my extremely good fortune room-wise in London the other week, and more recently at my truly luxurious boutique hotel in Sheffield a scant 48 hours ago, the gods of travel retribution were merely biding their time and unfortunately struck with the oft-quoted great […]

And a belated Happy Valentine’s Day to everybody reading; I was fortunate enough to have much of the day for some remorseless lazing about after enjoying a lovely aromatherapy massage as this month’s treat, and even got an unexpected happy ending upon discovering a slightly misshapen but desirably gym-locker-warm Snickers at the bottom of my […]

And another whirlwind visit to the capital ends, after four days of hi-jinks, more spoiling-rotten with Ladurée macaroons, wine and dining out under Waterloo Bridge (in, I should hastily explain, a restaurant) which I had at one point thought may never get underway following one technical hitch after the next, and coupled with the usual […]

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

Well all good things have to come to an end, and I post once again from my corner of the 1900h East Coast service from the merciless, blistering heat and scorching sun of… Edinburgh. Now there’s a sentence you don’t write every day. My travels this week began on Wednesday with the early train from […]

Today’s message comes from the comfort and privacy of the 26th seat on the 563 National Express service from London Victoria; my newly purchased dongle (whose tiny size, plain appearance and friendly-sounding name belie its might) is providing the wherewithal for myself and Vaio to browse, answer mail, and compose this blog entry, even as […]

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Firstly this week, I would like to offer heartfelt and sincere congratulations, my sympathies and a little apology to our newest outed lady member, the delightful Dr Brooke Magnanti aka ‘Belle de Jour’ diarist and therefore by proxy, much-discussed sensationalist television staple. Dr Magnanti (who is fortunate indeed to be blessed with a given name […]

Another pleasant week at home after the breathless crosscountry dashing of last weekend! I have received some especially charming new friends this last few days, many even bearing gifts (and at least two who I believe would have been happy to take my much-prized Tom Waits ticket off my hands). It turns out that these sold out in […]

getcha little somethin’ that you can’t get at home…

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Much excitement this week after successfully scoring my very own ticket to see the legendary Tom Waits in Edinburgh – and 6 rows from the front too (regular readers/visitors will be aware of my terrible eyesight and bravely borne battle with the contact lens.) I am delighted to be visiting Edinburgh (actually my birthplace, although anyone […]
