I'm writing this from the train home.  We're currently at Berwick, to be specific. Bit of a mare with this trip.  Will share all next Tuesday, likely. Will

    First of all, thank you all for the notes on my last entry. My entry pic is what happens when you discover that your blue shirt hasn't been washed enough not to run. I have my tablet back!  I got the text and the email telling me it was back at the shop on Friday…

  • RIP Tia
    August 13, 2019
    I've just got off the phone with my mum and she gave me bad news. Her dog Tia died in her sleep on Sunday. It's not a huge shock, she's not been in good health for a while.  She was about 15 years old (no-one is really sure).  She survived cancer, she survived more than…

    The Knife Angel. There was a knife amnesty and all of the knives surrendered (over 100,000) were sent to the British Ironworks Centre who, under the guidance of sculptor Alfie Bradley, turned them into the angel. It's on display in Middlesbrough at the moment. It's incredibly made and an absolute...

  • Here’s a question for you to ponder

    Every weekday morning, I listen to James O'Brien.  I always did listen to Mystery Hour (which is also available as a podcast, which I highly recommend you listen to), but I found I was basically listening to most of his shows from being posted other places so just started listening live. Earlier ...

    So, yeah, got the hair cut.  The recent heatwave just reminded me it needed done. FSM I wish I could grow long hair, but it defies gravity. The shades are because I realised I hadn't shown them to you. So, I'm trying to decide what to get my mum for her birthday.  Normally, I'd just…

    Got a phone call from the tattoo studio today.  The artist doing my new ink has transport issues and, therefore, can't get in. So, I'm not getting it done today.  It's been postponed til next Saturday. I swear to Bob, this damn tattoo is cursed. Will

    You see, I had a plan. I had to go into town yesterday for an appointment.  My plan was to then go to pick up my prescription, fill it then go home.  And subsequently spend Monday in the house. I had a plan.  It was a good plan, it was a plan that would work.…

    More politics on an absurdly hot day. The new Lib Dem leader was announced yesterday.  This was a bit of a boring election and, as expected, Jo Swinson won. The more interesting one was announced today.  That being the new leader of the Conservative Party and, therefore, Prime Minister. The rules...

    Yesterday, I went to an art thing at the town hall. We were surrounded by screens that images were projected onto while music (well, more like discordant sounds) was being played. Despite how it sounds, it was actually quite interesting. There was someone there with a child in a buggy and the kid...
