what’s a nice girl like you…

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

back on the road again!

Well a week on and I can confidently say that I am fighting fit and more than ready to well, roll, (as it were) and after a handful of fun and lively meetings over the past couple of days I am very happy to be diligently handwashing, mending, decanting (my favourite part, the soothing effects […]

well, the weather outside is (still) frightful…

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

And a fine weekend was had by all, well me at least, having braved the not-actually-all-that-bad conditions in woollies and wellies to meet a good friend who was visiting York (which was unutterably damp, sludgy and freezing, and made the sharp, crisp chill and fresh, powdery snow upon my return to Scarborough feel like the […]

fifteen feet of pure white snow…

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

As some readers will have noticed, the great outdoors has once again caught everybody on the hop by – gasp – SNOWING IN WINTER and I have this week been enjoying the spectacle from the cosy warmth of my apartment, give or take brief sojourns to the gym (and especially, the sauna, where I have […]

normal service has been resumed…

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Well, pretty much – bit croaky. As the couple of intrepid gents who visited yesterday will know, I am still a little on the wonky side and with an occasional cough like an elderly workhorse but on the plus side, half a stone lighter; the gym + plague combination has obviously been something of a […]

for richer, for poorer…

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

Like the majority of working adults, I have of late been endeavouring to streamline and simplify my finances, an activity not as easy as it sounds when a dedicated online and phone banker – all is swiftly and smoothly executed until one decides to attempt any manoevere more complex than an ordinary bill payment or […]

normal service has been resumed

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

Unaccustomed as I am to public speaking (etc, etc) I would like to thank everyone (including some charming people whom I have not even met yet!) who was concerned enough to contact me about the poor fool who saw fit to hack my website earlier this week – your kindness is very much appreciated (some […]
