Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (26 October 2010)

Good Eggs (25 October 2010)

Dear All, I would love to publish photos but I DONT KNOW HOW. The old git says he will teach me how to do it when we return to Blighty. Until then you will just have to use your imaginations.......

Rain Stopped Play (23 October 2010)

I cannot lie after two rums - with fruit juice - I am utterly unnecessary. The Pacific Ocean is calm athough the rain continues to come down in buckets, then spades and now in splishes and sploshes. I resorted to...

The Birth of the Bab (20 October 2010)

The Pacific in front of me, coconut trees to the left of me, banana trees to the right, the old git wearing nothing but some factor 20 and the daughter embalmed with Vera's Aloe.. Today is Wednesday 20th of October,...

Baby It's Cold Outside (13 October 2010)

When the man started talking to me at 7.00 I was confounded by his intrusion, I then realised it was the radio. As the story unfolded I marveled at the excellence of humanity, a whole country behind a handful of...

Sewing my Wild Rice (12 October 2010)

I woke up this morning with my left , lower, back muscle in spasm. There are thems that say its the stress coming out. There are thems that say its the detoxing. There are thems that say its because I...

Meals on Wheels. (12 October 2010)

Phoned the bank to check out we had travel insurance. Having given the wrong security details my call was blocked. A very nice Scottish lad helped me out. Resetting the security number and advising me not to use birthdays or...

Flat Out? (10 October 2010)

There's an undulating discomfort in the bottom of my belly, and it's not the mung bean soup, it's the thought I will have to give up my lovely flat. 'It's only a building.' says George. 'Don't get so attached.' says...

From fasting to slowing... ( 9 October 2010)

I fasted yesterday.Not for religious reasons but because I am getting my body used to cooked food again. I have been totally raw since April first, no joke let me tell you. But over six months it has done wonders...

Spicing up my life ( 7 October 2010)

Ping went the strings of my heart.... ( 5 October 2010)

Yesterday I turned left out of my road. Up to the traffic lights, right then a dogs leg down towards no signal on my phone. The rain drummed on my windscreen, and I was running a little late having been...

PULP Fiction. ( 3 October 2010)

Duddleswell Cheese is a creamy white concoction made from sheeps milk. I bought some from the Old Spot Farm shop when I went to collect another batch of gluten free chicken sausages. That's dinner tonight. Whilst driving I listened to...

Crumbs.... ( 2 October 2010)

I've just driven from Seven Oaks. Dropped the daughter off, she is finally making her own way in London. The operation was on August 7th, so her recovery has been remarkable. She is a little like me, more like the...

Don't na do it Donna ( 2 October 2010)

Never fails to amaze me how people, who don't like me, still read my blog, or find the time to track me down. If you dont like me, or disapprove of me Donna and Paul, please refrain from writing to...

Polishing my balls. ( 1 October 2010)

Tom Jones was on 'Desert Island Discs'. this morning. The old git and I lay in bed and listened as Sir Tom played a selection of music that, although not always my taste, indicated what a brilliant geezer he was....
