From Camelot to Cornwall. (30 July 2008)

Today Sanjeev Bhaska talked about his role in SPAMALOT. I went last night with BB to see the show. I always thought the Palace theatre was huge. Actually it's quite small and sweet with wonderful ceilings. There were two hysterical...

Do the Locomotion (28 July 2008)

The rain has lifted the humidity. I have enjoyed the heat though. I travelled through London with the roof down on my car, the 30 degree sun pounding down. I played Stevie Wonder very loudly on my car stereo and...

None of us get out of this alive. (23 July 2008)

My fathers funeral was a farce. He lived until he was 83. From behind he looked as lithe as a boxer, from the side he looked as limber as a weight lifter, but from the front he looked his age....

Marrakech - Part Five (21 July 2008)

Marnie and Will sent us photographs of their Riad in Marrakech. Pretty. Light. Beautifully clean. I felt SO hard done by. Jim says I will never be able to have a good holiday because I don't know how to relax...

I'm not sure I know how to have a holiday. It's not that I'm a workaholic its just that I don't know what to expect when I give myself a vacation.. The old git says a holiday has to be...

Road to Marrakech - part three. (16 July 2008)

Morrocco is full of colour. Pink Earth. Blue and White Walls. Terracotta Tagines Black skins. Lemon lemons. Orange oranges. Ochre Mosques. Azure skies. Red Tomatoes. Golden brown dates. Pink and yellow leather slippers. Deep Royal Blue of the Tuareg Tribesmen,...

Road to Marrakech - Part Two (14 July 2008)

Waking up to the call to prayer made a change from the East Sussex starlings. Our room overlooked the garden with two tortoises an array of plants and an old fishing net. Once we got the electricity back we could...

Road to Marrakech - Part One (13 July 2008)

Where do I begin....there's a song in there somewhere. We left England on Wednesday June 25th. The weather bright and crisp as I recall. The drive through Ashdown Forest was smooth and unruffled. Gatwick - North terminal - was empty,...

blighty (13 July 2008)

Apart from sun stroke, food poisening, exhaustion, and shock, I am very well thank you. Once I have unpacked, mowed the lawn, done the accounts, sorted my washing, driven to London, found the post box key, paid the bills and...
