what a difference a day (or so) makes…

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

And to pick up where I left off last time, a hop skip and a jump in an even-minier plane than last time (and see above; yes that is the pilot) and over to lovely Guernsey, or at least what I have thus far seen of it – even after four visits, still not much. […]

did you miss me?

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Two trains, a bit of a walk, one replacement bus and a short taxi ride later I arrived back to the peace, tranquility and desirably effective central heating of home late-ish on Saturday night, thanks not actually to the weather but as it turned out, the ever-convenient weekend engineering works which as anyone living within […]

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 […]

and i love to live so pleasantly…

…even though it may not be a life of luxury (although a quick peep inside my gloriously full refrigerator could possibly form the basis of a persuasive argument to the contrary) I am enjoying a busy yet leisurely few days, until today having shamefully not shown my face at the gym since last Sunday (mostly […]

the mid week update…

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

First and foremost, a quick line to reassure upcoming visitors that the boiler is now fixed (and obviously the weather has got warmer anyway) so any fears of chilled extremities can go out of the window – yay! I will naturally be looking forward to receiving the bill, considering it took all of thirty seconds […]

full steam ahead!

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 […]

we’re singing for england…

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

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 […]

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) […]

kung hei fat choi!

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

And another whirlwind visit to the capital ends, after four days of hi-jinks, more spoiling-rotten with Ladurée macaroons, wine and dining out under Waterloo Bridge (in, I should hastily explain, a restaurant) which I had at one point thought may never get underway following one technical hitch after the next, and coupled with the usual […]

back on the road again!

Monday, January 31st, 2011

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 […]
