Slapstick

To follow on from my entry yesterday: The Money Pit. Perhaps, as a 16 year old, I was less impressed by slapstick which is, essentially, what the film is about: how many times can Tom Hanks fall ...

Money Pit

In 1987 I went on holiday to Holland Centre Parks. I went with my mum and dad and my younger sister, they allowed us to invite a friend each too so I invited Lisa. Lisa had been a friend at prim...

Twenty minutes!!

Six weeks after I last ran I went to the gym this morning and went on the treadmill with a simple plan: walk for five minutes, speed up to run and see how it goes; run and walk as I needed. But I...


WHERE: as per the title, I’m in the car in the car park outside T’s youth club because I have to wait while she’s in there (having an escape makes her more likely to go). The youth club is in the...

You know how it is…

You have Summat to write about but when you’re sitting down it goes out of your head. I’ll give you some quick (10% phone battery) dribs and drabs. There’s nothing quite like reaching Day 4 of a...


WHERE: I’m sitting at the kitchen/dining table (it isn’t in the kitchen, it’s at the far end of the living room next to the kitchen). I’ve eaten some blueberry wheats (not a big fan but someone f...

Schwimmin’

Middle of the night alarms are always so much louder than they are when the sun is up and people are moving around, don’t you find? It certainly flung me out of my dreams and sent me on a traject...

New toy!!

A couple of years ago I was visiting my dad and went into the upstairs of the stable. The houses on my dad’s road were built in the 1930s in the grounds of an old Manor House (which is still ther...

Snorerrwim….

I’m quite excited, and wondering what the hell I was thinking at the same time… About half an hour away is a gorgeous Roman town with an outdoor pool. The pool is run as a charity and so have to ...

Just one of those days!

Well, I successfully ran the 25 minutes required for C25K today so it’s got that going for it. 🤣 This morning I planned to spend a couple of hours making a photo book of my Ridgeway runs, to keep...

The Root

The history: About two years before T was born, a wisdom tooth that i had had issues with for the previous 15 years was removed by a rather bog standard NHS dentist in town. It was a fairly quic...


Every August my Facebook memories remind me of the plethora of MOT experiences that august brings. The car is 14 years old which makes 11 MOTs and it has never cost a ridiculous amount other that...

Morning ponderings

To start with, my coffee smells and tastes of washing up liquid which is NEVER a good way to start the day 🤣 A major road junction has been closed and will remain so until November (I’ll believe ...

The cheek!!

I’m smiling to myself in spite of the utter cheek… I’ve had this for sale for a few weeks: A pretty damn solid piece of furniture. And the price I have asked? £15. A bargain if you ask me. I’ve ...

Tooooo early!!

On the home business gift markets I follow on Facebook they are starting to advertise Christmas things!!! Noooooo!!!! B

Am I wrong..?

Because my area of the world is so low on the water table each area (suburb) has its own lake, created to act as flood defence. One of our localish lakes which borders a slightly dodgy area has b...

Day drinking

As you know I rarely drink for two reasons. One) I hate feeling crap in the morning and B) I usually have to drive if we go out. Well, yesterday afternoon I had just finished painting my nails a...

At HOME home.

We’re joining Library Lil (btw, I’ve always wondered, is that a play on Lilo Lil from Bread?). L is now home until September. However, she isn’t isolating. Nope, the entire school has closed beca...

Votes and ideas

Only fun ones… Yesterday, I was in the car park of a golf club (not the hitting stick, the place where you play) and a black BMW swerved into the space next to me. As the two blokes opened the d...

Toe nail Update

I know you’re all on the edge of your seats, wondering how my toe nail is doing… Wait, what do you mean, “what toe nail..?” My infected, pus-spewing toenail that didn’t like the Ridgeway water ...

Survey-age!!

What battery percentage is on your phone right now? It was 20% when I started this but is now 19% and this is an ooooillldddd phone so I may suddenly did disappe…. Do any medical afflictions run ...


I’ve seen one rather boring version of this… I’m going to make it super, amazing. especially given that I’m in bed feeling crap (the feeling crap began mid-hike this afternoon and was followed by...

Icky gross toe shit

Well, obviously, my toe doesn’t shit, it has no bowl… but, just to say, you’re warned!! So, ya know my run? Well, I had a few sore toes afterwards. Not terrifically surprising as my trail shoes w...


🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 I think most of you have seen on FB/insta the challenge that I did yesterday. But I thought I would chart it here too. Back last summer I wanted some kind of challenge to add a little some...

Meth lab..?

Just a quick one as I’m frantically working in college stuff; I have an assessment due on Wednesday. But I just had to share an experience I just had… I just had someone wanting a nail appointmen...
