Those of you who are interested in football [or soccer as our American cousins insist on calling it] and who are maybe 40+ might recall Ray Wilkins. A few days ago he was taken to hospital after a heart attack. Sadly he died today. He was a B... Read more

This evening I did something dumb that is really unusual for me. I don't mean to suggest doing dumb things is unusual for me - just this particular dumb thing. I needed to pop over to my local shop. Because of the whole bailiffs nonsense I h... Read more

A few days ago I blogged about hearing some shocking news regarding someone in my friendship group being in prison. Later that evening The Worker Friend happened to call and I spoke about it with him. Or more to the point I spoke about my bein... Read more

Easter Sunday. Nothing planned. I'm not a 'believer' so it isn't a major day for me in terms of faith. But it doesn't seem so long ago that I'd make the weekend special for the children. Hot cross buns for breakfast on Good Friday. Dinner w... Read more
What was good though?
Friday, March 30, 2018      2 comments

It's Good Friday the traditional day to eat hot cross buns. I didn't buy any though. Deliberately. I couldn't really see the point just for me. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to suggest I'm not worth it. Just that while I 'quite' like hot... Read more

Earlier today a friend called me to ask for advice on a computer related matter. I'm no computer expert but compared to most of my friends my age I'm a tech whiz kid - which says more about their lack of computer skills than my ability! During... Read more

The Council are still driving me crazy over my so called Council Tax bill. Demanding yet more documents and information. I shall have to go back to the Town Hall tomorrow or Thursday. Meanwhile, they have set the Bailiffs on me who are sendin... Read more

It's the anniversary of my sister Marie's birthday. She would have been 64 today. It's so hard to imagine that. She died in February 1981 shortly before her 27th birthday. I have been without her for way, way, over half my life. Physically ... Read more
Spring Forward

The clocks went forward last night. Well, the early hours of this morning to be precise. It always surprises me when people don't remember if they are going forward or back. We have a little saying to help people remember - 'spring forward, fal... Read more

Do you join in Earth Hour? I do - every year. I switch off all the lights and the computer, light a candle and just kind of contemplate for an hour. Obviously I don't use any other electrical items during the hour and I usually switch the fre... Read more

It's kind of odd not to be counting down to The Wedding of The Century. I figured I'd try and catch up on the laundry today. Remember the second hand washing machine The Worker Friend bought and installed for me some time ago? Well it's never... Read more

Today the Birthday Brunch Bunch reconvened to rather belatedly celebrate one of the gang's birthday. Her actual birthday was last month! We're all so busy with work and various things that it's hard to find a day when we can all get together a... Read more

I haven't posted any pictures of The Tree for quite some time. I have still been taking them though. The tree was planted as a sapling not long after we moved in here. A little less than two years after the sapling was planted, my daughter wa... Read more

Have you read it? It has various subplots but basically it's Dickens tale of a law suit that goes on for years. You may know the quote "if the law supposes that, the law is a ass - a idiot". Shortened generally these days to 'the law is an as... Read more
