Crazy Hair

My hair is out of control, I realised this today when, on catching my image in the window of a passing shop, I realised the top of my hair was staring back at me from the 2nd storey window. It’s got so bad that London Energy are following me around […]

Days like these…

Bed is good. It’s warm, soft and it doesn’t rain unless the water tank is leaking. Why I ever left that happy sanctuary today I have no idea. First off I appear to have gone nocturnal during my break so I awoke in a zombie like state having been completely […]


Stardust tells the tale of Tristan’s search for a fallen star in order to win the hand of Victoria and is based on the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name. It stars a plethora of names from both sides of the Atlantic including Robert De Niro, Michell Pfeiffer, Peter […]

It’s war…

We have been invaded. No really. For some time now we have been being visited by a family of foxes who seem to think our (until recently) burgeoning vegetable patch is their own personal sandpit. We saved the radishes, the onions – it’s best not to mention them to G […]


Today we went to the Dickens World exhibition in Chatham. Yes I am wild, feral even. I had high hopes, media coverage had been positive, I like Dickens, I know less about him than I’d like and hell there was hope of hilarious hi-jinks that I might write about here. […]

Robots in disguise…

So it’s my birthday. I was treated to what can only be described as a breakfast banquet by G consisting of all my favourites: eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, fried potatoes, toast with marmalade, fresh black coffee and orange juice. All served by a beautiful woman, life doesn’t get much better […]

Gurn with the wind

“If the wind changes your face will stay like that,” said G to me from across the table. My Gurn is an improvement, many would say, but one that merely left the waitress who was passing at the time bemused and thinking it was time to stop serving me Coronas. […]

They saw me coming…

My car hates me. It was MOT time yesterday and I think Ford saw me coming: £600 (ouch!). What was done includes a pretty innocuous list: – Computer calibration (didn’t know it had one) – Headlight settings (you mean it’s not my wit dazzling the other drivers?) – Anti-roll bar […]

Driving along in my automobile…

Back in London now. Seems I spent most of the weekend driving racking up an impressive 600 miles, although I’m probably going to regret that when the car is serviced tomorrow. Drove into the mountains for the second time yesterday to see friends – which was lovely – but I realised, after a fascinating […]

In which I annoy people of note and fame…

Just got back from Hay-on-Wye having decided with S – at two in the morning whilst she was drunk and I was suffering from sleep deprivation – it didn’t matter that we had missed out on tickets. If Neil G was going to be there then we were going to. […]
