Boris Johnson’s letter to every household in the UK has come through the door - poor postman has to go to every house - and it is a bit late now, since Boris did not take his own advice and as I ...


As I write I should have been on a cruise ship somewhere in the English Channel en route to Oporto - well, things change. Nice to be safer here - well, as safe as one can feel - and just hope for...


South east Spain in the winter is great when the sun is out - and it was for all the two weeks we were there - a great time to walk and just relax - but things started to come apart a bit last We...


This was SW… opening her presents - yes - you are right - false news - but I do like the old pinups - just thinking that sixty years ago they were the means whereby young men got erections and...


I am so remiss these days - not coming on here enough except to read my favourites and keep in touch. Of course, as you can imagine the result of the election here did not fill me with joy - the ...


Over the years I have written about my dislike of the English rugby team - even though I am English. Not only the team but the commentators, and general acolytes around the team. If England won t...


The phrase used to be - ‘A week is a long time in politics’ - at the present moment ‘30 minutes seems a long time - who knows what will happen - a Prime Minister ostensibly refusing to abide by t...


We are back from Spain - moving from C30 degrees in the shade to C12 degrees and rain - but in a way it is nice to get back to some normal weather. I had all kinds of ideas for entries while away...
