forty three!

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Four weeks to the day after Christmas – check. Dark, raining and freezing cold – check. Forty three years on from 22nd January 1973 – it’s my birthday! After the relative peace of this week and a few more adventures in DIY (including a foray into my new favourite activity, the fitting and hairdryer-shrinking of […]

manhattan transfer…

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Well it clearly is true that time flies when you’re having fun, but it’s no less unfair that my last day in New York is here already (although there’s five hours more of my day left than that of UK readers, which is at least some small consolation). I type on my spanking new and […]

back to scarbados!

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

And a quick if belated update now I’m back from Birmingham – yay! It’s been a fairly tiring few weeks even with FrightFest – the demands of sitting in a cinema seat for four and a bit days cannot be underestimated, and the move to a new venue made it no less gruelling despite it […]

yoga at 1013 feet…

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

…or nearly that; sadly Friday’s blazing sunshine and soaring temperatures (that led me to skulk, fugitive-like in a shady corner of Cardinal Place with my packed lunch to avoid getting seriously frazzled) were nowhere to be seen at London Bridge at 8am on Saturday morning, meaning that the open-air viewing platform at the Shard was […]

well, that was good…

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

A quick post from my temporary London HQ having bowled up earlier today to something of a welcoming committee, having not stayed there for, er, well over six weeks. Needless to say all is not only well, but very comfortable indeed and it’s looking like a busy trip – this visit also marks the first […]

home is the hunter!

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

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 […]

brrr (midtown east)…

Sunday, February 9th, 2014

It’s five hours behind the UK, the sky is clear and air is dry and crisp as is the snow dusting the New York parks – yay! It’s also – predictably – very cold, but fortunately the erstwhile punters of Manhattan and the boroughs have rushed to my aid in providing warmth and comfort, not […]

i can see for miles and miles…

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

…because I finally have new glasses! Which will be a blessed relief to at least a handful of folk who I’ve inadvertently bumped into, headbutted or spent an age trying to get a condom on because I had it the wrong way and couldn’t tell. New Glasses are courtesy of Prada and thus very chi-chi […]

west end girl…

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

So, a far less tardy contribution after arriving back from That London late Saturday night after a fun but frantic few days, bar an unprecedented break on one due to what some would probably call a Temporary Maintenance Issue (I can’t be the only person who would love to know when, and more pertinently why […]

pain, gain and one more to go…

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

Tattoo sittings, that is. After another three and half hours of diabolical and prickly unpleasantness (followed by an unprecedented sprint through Kings Cross station from the underground to avoid missing the last train home, which I hope I never have to do again) we now have some colour on – yay! Still no pictures, since […]
