spring(ish) cleaning!

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

Some long-overdue housekeeping is underway here on the blog as promised when the new site went up ten months or so ago; firstly, and inspired both by my fabulously hardworking and energetic friend Kimberly C (who is American and lacks the lazy gene entirely) and the regular requests I get to let folk know when […]

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

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 […]

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 […]

back to the grind!

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

And back also to an awful lot of variously odd, incomprehensible and deeply silly text messages, which baffled me completely until somebody told me that our schools didn’t start back until yesterday. Bless. I write from my current London digs, after the most painfully early start in a few weeks – Belfast at 5.30am being […]

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

This evening’s post comes courtesy of Virgin West Coast’s onboard wifi – I am winging my way to Glasgow as we speak, and having survived the freezing temperatures on the platform at Preston especially, the final leg is well underway and touchdown ought to be in half an hour or so… Today’s most exciting news […]

happy valentine’s and busy busy!

Friday, February 15th, 2013

And a slightly belated Happy Valentine’s Day from what is fortunately now returning to a calm and peaceful apartment, after a couple of weeks of chaos with visitors aplenty both back in That London and more surprisingly right here in Scarborough – it seems that in turning forty I’ve begun turning up in a whole […]

that was the week that was…

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

…a bit of an oddity, all things considered. Starting with a cancelled train at York on Monday morning (and a just-caught flight as a result) and culminating in a very welcome (if a little unexpected) return to the leafy highways and byways of my old stomping ground of Pimlico, it’s been, er, interesting. I’m absolutely […]

saturday night (& the rest) at the movies…

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

Almost two weeks (sorry) on, and with the memory of fourteen hour days in a cinema seat, breakfasting on pick and mix (not once but twice) and meeting fellow aficionados of the good* (Sleep Tight, Chained, Sinister, American Mary), the bad (Outpost 2, Under The Bed) and the so-bad-they’re fantastic (step forward Tulpa, which had […]

back! and off again…

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

And I’m back! After spending the last three days being fed, fussed, dry-flotated (?) and otherwise mollycoddled to a heinous degree (and even learning new and useful skills; hula hoop fitness class anybody?) I can happily report that I’m looking forward to a lively few weeks… I have had a special bamboo massage plus a […]

did you miss me?

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Two trains, a bit of a walk, one replacement bus and a short taxi ride later I arrived back to the peace, tranquility and desirably effective central heating of home late-ish on Saturday night, thanks not actually to the weather but as it turned out, the ever-convenient weekend engineering works which as anyone living within […]
