4 give ness (31 January 2010)

Thank you all for your supportive comments. I think this blogging lark is remarkable, even if I am a twit when it comes to the workings of it. I watched a wonderful documentary about the world wide web, the internet,...

Homage to Pedro (27 January 2010)

I slept in until 9.15 this morning. Booked the man to clean my oven. Left my phone to discharge itself. Took the 170 to Victoria. The tube to Leicester Square. Felt like I was made out of India rubber, it...

Souper (26 January 2010)

The old git doesn't get in until after eleven. He's been thrashing out his servant at 'The Lyric', Hammersmith. The first half of 'The Three Sisters' is not good, the second half better. By the time he gets home he...

Jeni staring at men (21 January 2010)

When the old git dies I'm setting up home with Jeff bridges. Ewan McGregor can polish my pantry and George Clooney can do whatever he likes. 'Men Staring at Goats' is a wonderful film and so is the Prince Charles...

Pets are people too..... (20 January 2010)

Apart from talking to Roger Reese and Sir Ian Mckellan, wonderful men who made me miss being an actress, I talked to people about what they fed their pets. An article in the newspaper shone the spotlight on the tins...

Blackberry Blues (18 January 2010)

I have a new Blackberry I hate my new Blackberry I cannot understand my new Blackberry. It is more irritating than the most irritating presenter on Channel 5. I am seriously thinking of giving back my Blackberry. With all that...

Hurrah For Gary. (14 January 2010)

Is the rain preferable to snow? I think so I can see the green of the grass.. Jonfan called me from the cottage, the guttering is frozen and it looks like the cellar is going to flood from all the...

MARCH 21st. RADLETT CENTRE. (13 January 2010)

The old git is in 'The Three Sisters' at The Lyric in Hammersmith, he's playing the same part that Eric Sykes played. He never shares anything about the production so I have no idea what he's doing,how he's doing it...

AVAGO at AVATAR (12 January 2010)

Today I shouted on air. I shouted about 2.5bn of our tax payers money being abused. Taken from Universities so that it can be spent on what? A Trident perchance? A bloody missile that nobody can use. I want my...

To Thaw the frozen Lakes Again..... (11 January 2010)

Bringing up baby, Dementia and Bodies. All the subjects were linked in some way. How we bring up our children, how we treat our bodies and the alienation we feel towards our very own flesh and blood . Suzie Orbach,...

ALICE MARTHA LYTE. 1986 - 2009 ( 9 January 2010)

I just gave in and ignored all the weather warnings. 6.00 a.m. start. 6.30 - '170' to Victoria. Victoria-Green Park -Leicester Square-Charing Cross. 7.15 to Tonbridge. Taxi to Tunbridge Wells. Breakfast in 'Carluccios'. Met up with B who had gingerly...

Snowtimelikethepresent ( 6 January 2010)

The 170 bus drove remarkably smoothly to Victoria. I made an executive decision that whilst there would be no grit in St. James Park it would be worth a punt. I was right. The ice had melted under the bridges...

Weather we do or weather we don't. ( 5 January 2010)

Why do I get so worried about snow? I have a Swede staying with me who thinks we Brits are drips. He works in the North of Sweden in temperatures of -36. LBC reacted to the severe weather warnings which...

Two Sarongs don't make a right. ( 3 January 2010)

Sunday January 3rd and I'm all set to go. My new decade resolution is to write for three hours every day. Malcom Bradwell in the 'Outfliers' says that it takes 10,000 hours to become a genius. So by his reckoning...
