5 witches and Max

So, the sun now goes down at 4:30. Yesterday it went down an hour later. 5:30 didn’t seem quite so bad but 4:30? Feels far too early. Somehow, though, it feels about right for Halloween. Last year I noticed that … Continue reading

Football: It’s cruel sometimes

We had a lovely Nicktor night spent watching The Usual Suspects (Nicktor had never seen it and loved it) and The Business (a Brit gangster film we’d never heard of but was ok and had an excellent 80s soundtrack). Next … Continue reading

Lily and the Queen’s Bottom

My niece, Kelly married Ash yesterday in the most fantastic pink wedding dress. I really like pink. It’s such a joyful, playful colour. You can’t be sad when you look at pink. Well, I don’t think so, anyway. Sadly I … Continue reading

Essential maintenance, indeed!

You could have knocked me down with a feather. I leave home before Waitrose opens, specifically to go to Starbucks first (which opens half an hour earlier). This works out very well. I tend to chuckle at the hordes waiting … Continue reading

Noises off

A great people record amending day at work again. I’m sure I’ll get them all ship shape and Bristol-ly fashion, some long distant time in the future. Nick has threatened to nominate me for volunteer of the year. Whatever that … Continue reading
