  1. Good morning and happy Halloween etc. I shall be marking the day by attending the Muse concert for Radio 2 tonight. I realise that I am therefore neglecting my trick or treat duties but that's the way it is. I'd love to be at home answering the door to local ghouls, handing out a selection of sw...

  2. I write in near darkness. Nothing to do with the weather but the builders are back. Windows are covered, scaffold erected and men swarming (if 3 people can swarm). The roof needs attention and coffee and biscuits need buying. This can be a stressful time as most bloggers know. We have all had th...

  3. Half term finished (in as much as it existed at all) and the dank and cold weekend done for. More geocaching was required of course (see last week) and our best find was a wonderful small silver capsule operated by a pulley system half way up a tree. Very clever and a round of applause for its c...

  4. Last day of half term here. Last day of no school run obligations and pyjama blogging. A decadent start to the weekend eh? One of the reasons for our slovenly behaviour was the post show dash to see Warhorse at the New London Theatre. I had heard it was brilliant and, ahead of Michael Morpurgo's...

  5. Good morning to all bloggers and welcome to new arrivals. A quieter day was enjoyed yesterday which is just as well. The showbiz quotient of Tuesday was hard to keep up and there's only so much sparkle one is allowed. So a chat and brunch with child 1 before his return to uni was quite enough (t...

  6. Well quite a drama. I finished the show yesterday in my coat ready to leap into action. To get to the Royal Albert Hall from Radio 2 in central London is quite a tricky operation if you're in a hurry at the best of times. There is no easy tube line that doesn't involve loads of walking and a tax...

  7. Good morning from a dark and dank London. One of those days when the darkness seems to last for a long time. At least I'm staying put for most of it, with no train journeys, school visits or book waving to do. A sedate breakfast then a tortuous day of rewrites before WORK and the DAY JOB takes o...

  8. Foggy morning here, primed and ready to go already. Hope the weekend was good for all bloggers. I spent most of it in a ditch. Or under a bridge. Maybe wading through marshland or staring up at a tree with a gale and driving rain doing their best to knock me over. This, in case you hadn't realis...

  9. Me again. Thanks for checking the blog, it has been a mad week but the weekend approacheth and maybe a little space for things like going for a walk, watching clouds and sitting on a bench. I can't quite imagine it but you never know. I was supposed to go to see another film this morning but tha...

  10. Ok, I admit to being excited. It's James Bond day today. This morning at 10.30 I'll watch the new Skyfall movie and the reviews are so enthusiastic, I'm expecting something special. To get 5 stars (as many reviewers have done) is quite an achievement. I have no knowledge of the plot as I'm tryin...
