Monday, September 12th, 2011

And a peaceful week as ever to follow the jetsetting – I have spent the majority of the past few days enjoying the calm and catching up on the usual tasks that the stamp-paying self-employed look forward to most of all; hours of unpaid admin, catching up on bills/correspondence and in my case, organising transport, […]

what’s a nice girl like you…

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Well, an update as promised; the Rogue Tooth is to be removed next week and in the meantime I have some of the dreaded antibiotics for company – cue dry mouth, faint nausea and a generally giddy feeling (which is more than likely linked to the fact that I have eaten practically nothing bar grapes, […]

to hull and back…

Friday, June 10th, 2011

And as another week draws to a close, firstly I must proudly report that the Race for Life Grand Total is – ta da – £670, which considering that it has virtually all come from generous ladies and punters is (not to put too fine a point on it) bloody amazing. Thank you to EVERYBODY […]

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 […]

woohoo!

As the day draws nearer, it’s about time I updated folks on our Race for Life progress (and see above for a further celebration of some of the merchandise, both mine and theirs). The current sponsor money bird-in-the-hand-wise is £140, with about that again already promised so all being well, my original target of £500 […]

the great escape…

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 […]

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 […]

we’re singing for england…

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

And as the memories of mighty skyscrapers, 24 hour diners, hot dogs and wintry sunshine in Central Park and microwave tea fade away for now, I am happily ensconced back in Scarborough and looking ahead to the upcoming weeks in our own fair(ish) country. And plenty to look forward to, thankfully! A brief missive this […]
