Elaine gave me a lift to the local MP's office today. She was meant to be picking me up at 1.30 pm. Elaine is always BUT ALWAYS late. Hence at 1.40 pm I wasn't surprised that she hadn't arrived. She rang to apologise and say she'd pick me up... Read more

I have taken to checking my post box frequently whilst waiting for the elusive driving licence. Today when I checked for the nth time, there it was - a BROWN envelope. Which is 99.9% certain to be 'official'. As I lifted it out of the post bo... Read more

26th March - the anniversary of my sister's birth. We lost her February 16th 1981 - a few weeks before her 27th birthday. It's strange to think I've lived way over half my life without her. Well without her physical presence because of course... Read more

What if the replacement driving licence arrives tomorrow? What if Land Registry complete the transfer in the shortest possible time - 4 weeks apparently. What if the exchange of contracts whizzes through in a couple of weeks? And what if comp... Read more

When I sent the application for my replacement driving licence for the second time, I sent everything recorded delivery, plus enclosed a pre paid recorded delivery envelope for them to return my supporting documents. A few days ago I received s... Read more

I've spoken previously about the 'Birthday Brunch Bunch'. Basically it's a group of about ten of us and whenever it's one of our birthdays we have a 'Rhubarb' as close as possible to the birthday in question. Rhubarb is a local cafe with a ver... Read more

Youngest son had bought some sweet potato, butternut, and carrot mash. Then realised he wasn't going to use it before the 'best before' date so he asked me if I could make use of it. I generally like to cook from scratch but I'm not overly sni... Read more

Rat a tat. Who's that knocking at my door? I know my children's knocks. I know Sally and Elaine's knocks. I know Dorothy's knock, SJ's knock, Yoko's knock, Mandy's knock. In fact I know the knocks of all my friends and regular callers. Inc... Read more
