  1. Time to kill.

    And we made it to another weekend, well done troops. The estate cold and uninviting (partially naked except toffee wrappers and this morning's papers, Mr Jones got run down. Lyrics that just sprung to mind. Not many songs I can quote but Down In A Tubestation At Midnight is one of them). The autumnal...

  2. Hold the front page!

    Busy busy blog yesterday. That map reading, sat-nav conversation is a good one! I never realised that so many folk have names for their sat-navs. I mean I know it talks to you but I'm not sure we are encouraged to talk back to it. Though now you mention it, that sounds rather fun. I turn the sound off...

    The train south from Waterloo. A bacon and egg roll (with ketchup) and a coffee to hand and (as JY used to say) 'orft we jolly well'. Stockbridge in deepest Hampshire is the destination for this morning's fun and games and not the Stockbridge in the James Taylor song '1st December was covered in snow...

    My house, my desk, my coffee. No schools today so I get to do the wild and windy school run and I detect an end of term weariness amongst us all. Understandable methinks. So here's a thought...shorter nights are only 3 weeks away. So if the proximity of Christmas scares you, that is a consolation I feel...

  5. Are you sitting comfortably?

    Grim old train journey this. Dark clouds, huddled travellers. However, heading for the bright lights of Winchester with a song in my heart and a bacon roll in my stomach. My relentless cheerfulness will get them in the end.
    A weekend when I finally pressed 'send' on book 2 and of hoping it doesn't come...

    Assuming all our roofs are on and hair is in place, here we go for another fabulous Friday. And having been grateful all day yesterday in the Thanksgiving way, we had the Radio 2 presenters gathering-that-wasn't-a-party in the evening. Although we all come out of the same speaker, we rarely get to see...

    Morning all. A lovely (wild, stormy, floody) day here, with a trip to some where! Who knows where! The leaves are piling up in vast wet piles around the estate waiting for someone to get a grip. I have a feeling everyone is thinking that person is me (precedent m'lud) so if I could just stop running...

    Good morning from a wet and gloomy car/station/train/school. As my old colleague Jane Garvey tweeted yesterday, if only there was a winter,party based celebration on the way...
