Hellooooo Oooo ooo Blimey, isn’t the house big when you take down all the tat Christmas decorations. As ever, with the house returned to a semblance of order (ohh I do like a bit of order) thoughts turn to DIY. Namely the funny patches of paint just inside the living room door where we’ve daubed…Continue reading DIY Time?
December the 24th is Christmas Eve. I mention this not as a startling revelation but because it’s the first of eleven days that I have off work. So if I discount the 25th and 26th of December, as well as the 1st of January as I’m Scottish and by law we are not allowed to…Continue reading The festive period
Picture the scene, if you will, of a dashing and debonair young man, slim of body with flowing locks of blonde hair framing his sculptured face as he lounges gracefully on a chaise lounge.

Don’t hate me. Please. I don’t do this kind of thing on purpose. Honest I don’t. But it does seem to follow a pattern, doesn’t it. Ohh wait, you don’t know what I’m talking about yet, do you.

On the other hand, there is something to be said for routine. The familiar lends itself to easy comfort. At the moment I’m trying to balance the two,…Continue reading Change versus Routine
Or is I front? Looks like a small blip on the server this morning, so if you were rendered aghast at the rather unsightly WordPress error page you received this morning (must do something about that), fear not. I is still here. Prostitutes are in the news, and for all the wrong reasons. In saying…Continue reading Am I back?
I’m going slightly mad, I’m one card short of a full deck, I’m not quite the shilling, One wave short of a shipwreck, I’m not at my usual top billing, I’m coming down with a fever, I’m really out to sea, This kettle is boiling over, I think I’m a banana tree … There is…Continue reading *sticks two chips up nose*
“We won’t become those old people who can’t stand kids and are always shouting at them, will we?” I said I didn’t think so, as we do like kids, it’s just the ones that run around, scream, shout, wail and generally cause minor chaos in shops that annoy.
