homeward bound!

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

So the festivities are over, waving goodbye to Mini Tree done and back to the air and trainathon for me, my first stop over a week ago being Cork! An exciting journey indeed given that the weather on the Tuesday (upon noticing that there were no train breakdowns or plane delays to be getting on […]

home is where the haddock is…

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Another blissful week of R&R and plenty of F (of the type that comes mostly in three course buffet form – Adultworkers plus parlour and party habitués may still be misreading me) has drawn to a close and I can confidently state that whilst my newly calm and relaxed demeanour has taken some shifting, I […]

Tonight’s post is brought to you from my overly warm but otherwise surprisingly charming Newcastle digs, boasting as they do excellent linen, a large, comfortable bathroom from which I entertained the idea of beginning this posting had the marble surrounding the bath been a touch wider, and a refrigerator replete with FREE bottled water, orange […]

what’s a nice girl like you…

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

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, […]

to hull and back…

And as another week draws to a close, firstly I must proudly report that the Race for Life Grand Total is – ta da – £670, which considering that it has virtually all come from generous ladies and punters is (not to put too fine a point on it) bloody amazing. Thank you to EVERYBODY […]

you take the high road…

…and I’ll take the 1135 First Scotrail service to Inverness (calling at Haymarket, Kirkcaldy, Perth, Dunkeld and Birnam, Pitlochry, Blair Atholl, Newtonmore, Kingussie, Aviemore and Inverness). A surprisingly busy train it is too, and I post having created an Area with coat, Kindle and knitting placed carefully about the periphery of my table seat in […]

Firstly, and as so many have now asked, above is a picture (of one at least) of my oft-mentioned piscine companions; Chubby Chops is a brand new addition to the household, and is settling nicely in Tank 2 having shrugged off a touch of whitespot from the pet shop. He enjoys eating, digging, and getting […]

let them eat cake…

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

This beginning of today’s post is brought to you once again by East Coast trains (or their free Wifi at least); my second London visit of the year has sadly drawn to a close and after a final exciting day encompassing swimming, museum-going, shopping and the second visit of the week to a Yo Sushi […]

full steam ahead!

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

And spring has most definitely sprung at last – yay! The sun is still shining outside my windows at seven pm, Scarborough’s lovely daffodils and primroses are all in full bloom amongst the woodlandy-bits and I, ever the optimist, have left home without a coat on two separate occasions this last week for the first […]

concrete jungle that dreams are made of…

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

And a couple of decent nights’ sleep later I am bright eyed, bushy tailed and very much refreshed following a wonderful few days! I began last week with the nostalgic pleasure of a night at an airport budget-chain hotel (keycarded lifts as a legitimate security measure rather than a headache being something of a novelty) […]
