home is the hunter!

And whilst it’s looking like a busy week (not least as the DIY and decorating continues apace) I have finally arrived back at HQ for a sensible interval after what seems like interminable weeks of go away-come back-do laundry-repack-go away again and weeks it is, if we count from my setting off for New York […]

from one dubliner to, well, some more…

It’s always good to be back in Belfast – the sun is shining, the sky is blue-ish (at the time of writing, at least) and my last minute venue change has certainly proved to be one for the better – yay! Timewaster Central to cartoon levels though it is (and even with my usual built-up-specially-for-the-trip […]

back! and off again…

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 […]

midnight lullaby…

And that’s another one out of the way! I am taking a mini break from the ceremonial undressing of Mini Tree, given that he will be saying au revoir in a few days and returning to recuperate in his usual outdoor home for the next eleven months before returning for Christmas 2012 refreshed, invigorated and […]

paradise found…

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

A slight exaggeration maybe, but after a relaxing week at home with TV, comfort food, fishes and the all-encompassing pleasantness that comes from attempting nothing more challenging than laundry for a few days (only fair after muchas liveliness on the islands) it’s fair to say that a heavy sigh of resignation was emitted when the […]

any time you’re lambeth way…

And after the baking heat of Cambridge a week ago, I finally made it home on Saturday night (despite the better efforts of First TransPennine Express) just in time for the last hour of X-Factor and shortly before the on-off drizzle set in again – awaiting me were ecstatic fishes (yay), a mountain of junk […]

shake, shake, shake señora!

A quick update, since it’s bags packed and ready to go once again after a delightful week of fun and frolics amidst the newly falling leaves and beautiful September sunshine, albeit accompanied by at least one day so windy that I not only had an unexpected Monroe moment on Valley Bridge (thank God for 120 […]

an update, and – a result!!!

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Well I had hoped that this week last year was a particularly galling one-off – would that it were so! This last week, and specifically the last 48 hours have made the events surrounding my earlier post pale into insignificance. I have never, ever (in the short time I’ve had it) been so grateful for […]

and relax… (for a bit, anyway)

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Home! I finally staggered (partly through sheer exhaustion, and partly thanks to the last remaining effects of a very good lunch with the lovely Catherine Stephens at Skylon) through my door for the first time in almost a week last night shortly after darkness fell, and after the busiest week since records began (to borrow […]

and breathe…

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Well the final phase of pack-unpack-wash-repack-in-bigger-case is well and truly underway and I shall be leaving for Cambridge after lunch, having dashed back from Oxford last Wednesday to a patiently waiting sea of lovely gentlemen with the net result being that today has been my first much-needed day off for a week. Gosh. Oxford (as […]
