Kissings Out of Fashion (31 May 2010)

Friday night's drive back to East Sussex was nowhere near as bad as I had anticipated. Jim drove my little red car home and I collected my mother in his. It's smoother, sleeker, more comfortable for an 88 year old...

Flower Power (27 May 2010)

Gardening is not really my thing. I love my garden but get deeply frustrated at the continual need for weeding and the like. The irony is that I have green fingers. if I plant it it grows. My mother has...

MARRIAGE BLITZ (25 May 2010)

I slept through the alarm, I had intended to get up at 5.30 to write but I was a bit under par last night so I chose to stay under the duvet with the old git, well it was our...

Poirot for supper (23 May 2010)

I got up just before sunrise on Saturday morning. Put on a sarong, my pink crocks and a little black bolero thingy. I left as the sun came up. It took precisely one hour and five minutes to do 45...

Purple Jeni (19 May 2010)

David Cameron is our new PM. Nick Clegg is our new Dep PM It already feels like 9 PM and it's only just gone 8.00!...

Hanging Parliament. (10 May 2010)

Lib-Lab-Lab-Lib-Lib-Con-Con-trick, its all ridiculous posturing from a band of boys who want to get into Number 10. Do they really care about us? Do they really care about the country or is it just a mish-mash of egos desperately trying...

Maasai madness. ( 9 May 2010)

19.53. My hands, nose and feet are cold. i've turned the heating up full. The 'oosbind has turned it back down again. We spent the weekend in the cottage. I took the train - 3.45 - from Charing Cross on...

Election night ( 7 May 2010)

Have just come in from The Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn. The 'oosbind and I went to see FILTER theatre group doing their version of TWELTH NIGHT. A riotous evening of music, physical theatre, good humour, the Bard, good acting and...

Mary Poppins and me ( 6 May 2010)

The ceonathus along the riverside walk is in full bloom I had to take a photograph. American Lilac is its common name but there's nothing common about the blueness of those delicious flowers. The Wisteria along Cheyne Walk, especially on...
