I intended to write about Mothering Sunday today [which was celebrated yesterday here in the UK]. However it will have to wait because I am incensed by the Chris Huhne/Vicky Price business. Yes, I know it's a UK thing - apologies to our Ameri... Read more

The Darwin Day lecture on Monday was fun. Not perfect but very interesting. Daughter bought the latest [signed] Brian Cox book. Me, being more into politics, I bought a copy of Owen Jones 'Chavs The Demonization of The Working Class'. I mus... Read more

Here I am, turning up like a bad penny once again. Things just seem so hectic now. I'm getting more and more involved in local community stuff. Of course, the more one gets involved, the more people one meets, and the more one gets asked to h... Read more

in politics. And it's certainly been a long week for me. The Hustings was quite an experience. I was very girly swot and did my homework though on all the local issues. Then I typed up an alphabetical list of the various things that might be... Read more

Sunday, November 11, 2012      6 comments

Do I get myself into these scrapes? Tomorrow evening I have to do a 'Hustings'. So, people in the audience can throw up whatever relevant questions they wish, and I, along with the other candidates, have to come up with a coherent answer. ... Read more

Well not that it matters. Unless you happened to notice I wasn't here. But anyway, I was - in spirit at least. And I've stuck to eating healthily. And trying to move, move move. I'm standing in a local bye election. Normally such thing... Read more

And now I can't find it. I've looked behind the settee. I've checked through the laundry. I've searched in the bathroom. Hunted in the sitting room. Sought for it in the dining room. Explored in the garden. I even peeked in the fridge - ... Read more

These were my October Goals - along with my outcomes. 1) Continue with my de cluttering - Done though not at consistently as I'd like. 2) I'm not much of a TV watcher though I do watch Dr Who, and Question Time. So, I shall set up my... Read more

Well actually, I am. And have been since I was knee high to a grasshopper. Sadly, I can't get or afford tickets to their matches any more. And tonight's match wasn't on TV. Nor could I get it on live streaming. So, I had to follow it on a M... Read more

Earlier this week, I placed one of my mega, supermarket internet shops. Lots of cat food, potatoes, washing powder, cans, and so on. All the heavy stuff it's hard to carry back weekly. Plus of course fresh fruit and veg for the next few days.... Read more
