In harms way (29 August 2008)

There are moments in life that stay with you forever. The first embrace under dripping beech trees in Wales 32 years ago when the old-git looked like Paul Newman and I looked like Natalie Wood. Th moment the child looked...

Fanny Haddock (27 August 2008)

There are times when you don't know quite how discomposed you are. This morning I arrived at LBC all a bit queasy and overheated. We'd been to the IVY to celebrate a friends birthday. Jim had forgotten his wallet, I...

Dimanche 17th Aou (22 August 2008)

Samedi's sandals had done the trick, but Dimanche demanded firmer footwear. Team leader Linda, and I had decided on our itinerary, we knew where we were going and we knew how to get there, we were ready to go by...

Dog Day Afternoon (10 August 2008)

For thirteen years and seven months we had a big, soft, sloppy Labrador. He was walked just about every single day. When we were on holiday he was walked by friends and family. When it rained we put on galoshes,...

The Duke of Hazzard ( 6 August 2008)

One minute I'm talking about Prince Phillip and his prostate gland, the next Buckingham Palace have taken out a complaint against the Evening Standard. I must say though, that it did feel just a little bit personal talking about the...

Brooms and stuff. ( 4 August 2008)
