Houseworkery... (31 March 2011)

Housewiffery is on the agenda today. Sometimes I don't mind it, today its alright as it's the only thing that will warm me up. I couldn't sleep so I watched Jessica Double Thingy simper her way through 'Sex in the...

Hammer Montana (29 March 2011)

I've got suedette slippers on over big blue woolley socks. I've got tartan pyjama trousers on that are short like The Bay City Rollers. I'm wearing the top to go with the trouser bottoms and a blue cardigan over the...

It came, it went I slumbered. (26 March 2011)

I have just necked the last of the Prosecca. Jim and I had the last of the spicy chicken wings and I have written my thank you letters. I had a very different birthday. It was the end of a...

Spring has sprung (22 March 2011)

When the alarm bellowed at me I literally leapt out of bed. At six in the morning there is no point in arguing with John Humphries. Collected my shorts and vest from the utility room, rolled up a clean towel,...

My last ever 61st Monday (21 March 2011)

First I watch the BBC news at 6.00 Then I watch The ITV news at 6.30. Libya, Japan and energy companies who have us by the short and curlies. Then I watch Corrie. Then I watch University Challenge. 'WE ARE...

Super Moon Blues (19 March 2011)

From Uttapam to chocolate cake. From the Number 24 bus route to a taxi to shake the frost bite off. I cannot believe how cold everything is. I cannot believe how disoriented I feel. Is it the Super Moon? Is...

I cannot Alka-LIE (16 March 2011)

Apples and pineapples are soooooooo delicious BUT they do my gut in. Too much sugar, too much acid. I woke this morning feeling less than magnificent, however, I made yoga. A beeeeyoutifool young geezer struck up some chat. Only a...

The best things in life are nearly free (15 March 2011)

I went back to Yoga yesterday. The bliss of it. I couldn't make the day sessions so drove to the 5.00 p.m. class. I had been up since before 7.00 organising my new regime. It meant shopping in ASDA, forgive...

'Tis a naughty night to swim in....' (11 March 2011)

The old git started up the car, I loaded one wash bag into the boot, and off we went. After twenty minutes sitting in a traffic jam on Battersea Bridge, and a further fifteen minutes filling up the petrol tank,...

WOW ( 8 March 2011)

Just because the sun is out doesn't make it warm. This morning whilst walking to Clapham Junction my breathe hung in the air like little clouds of white crystals. It was cold. Actually it was very cold. The sun shone...

Toto ( 2 March 2011)

Is it six days since I blogged! Blimey doesn't time fly when you're being Vanessa. The week flew. My nephew Dan's postie listened to the weeks broadcasts his verdict thus: Monday she was ropey. Tuesday she was better. Wednesday she...
