may day!

Or at least it will be in a few hours, and true to form the bank holiday weather is looking unpredictable at best. Hey ho. It’s also a full week (or it will be at around half past twelve) since I got back from Edinburgh and Dead By Dawn, having spent – as I do […]

a few quick words about…

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

…punctuality. And hands up who thinks I’m going to moan about punters being late? You’re wrong, although the prat who called to announce himself and ask for final directions some eight minutes after his half hour booking should have started (and therefore roughly ten minutes after I was expecting him to call and announce himself) […]

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 […]

1 more sleep…

It’s Christmas Eve already – yay! Where did the week go? Another thing that has gone is my Samsung tablet, which took a completely unspectacular tumble no more than a couple of feet onto a rug and refused point blank to work from then onwards. Since replacing the digitiser (which the screen is attached to, […]

i fought the floor…

Sunday, December 18th, 2016

…and the floor (nearly) won. It’s finally down – or at least most of it is – but dear God, the dust. To anybody who called in the days that followed and was faintly surprised to hear the late Leonard Cohen answering, unfortunately that was me. And more is to come since there’s still the […]

back from the smoke!

Well now I remember why I worked in Pimlico! Charming punters, peace & tranquility in abundance and only ten minutes or so walking through Mary Poppins-esque streets to get away from it when you’ve had enough. Having Tate Britain on the doorstep is never a bad thing when a chance to while away a couple […]

back to the beginnings!

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

The last couple of weeks have flown! Which for some bits in particular is no bad thing; I wonder if we could fast forward through the next four years too. I’m all packed up and ready to head off for Pimlico for an exercise in déjà vu that I’m vaguely apprehensive about; as a handful […]

hokus pokus…

Saturday, November 5th, 2016

And another timezone is upon us (sort of) even if my normally peaceful unawareness of this was scuppered by my forgetting to change the clock on the old hifi that serves as an amp for my radio alarm, resulting in my getting woken up at 7am on Sunday morning by Betty Harris. All things considered, […]

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 […]

two years, two days and two hours…

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

It’s October! Well, just. Virtually every seasonal autumn milestone has slid by at some point this last week; the heating has been on, piles of rustly leaves have been kicked when no one was probably looking and I’ve turned back home to put a coat on twice after setting off for the flat and feeling […]
