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 […]

onward ho!

Monday, July 25th, 2011

And I post this morning from the first of three trains on my interminably long journey to Oxford; I am scheduled to arrive shortly after lunch and whilst the remainder of the afternoon is resolutely spoken for, I am hoping to wander over to the cinema this evening, just in case the bare five hours […]

here comes the rain again…

Apologies for the slight lapse, but it’s been something of a frenetic week! In addition to a steady stream of eager gentleman callers from all corners of the globe, I have taken the bull by the horns and not only attended a long overdue eye test for some new spectacles (those who have witnessed me […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

woohoo!

As the day draws nearer, it’s about time I updated folks on our Race for Life progress (and see above for a further celebration of some of the merchandise, both mine and theirs). The current sponsor money bird-in-the-hand-wise is £140, with about that again already promised so all being well, my original target of £500 […]

the great escape…

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Well, as the karma fans among us might have reasonably expected following my extremely good fortune room-wise in London the other week, and more recently at my truly luxurious boutique hotel in Sheffield a scant 48 hours ago, the gods of travel retribution were merely biding their time and unfortunately struck with the oft-quoted great […]

keep on running…

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Before I do anything else, and bearing in mind I have an impromptu mad dash to That Sheffield tomorrow for a catch-up dalliance en route to my original destination of Coventry on Thursday (and have to pack!), I need to thank the people who have already sent Race For Life donations via Paypal since I […]

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 […]
