You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video Today I arranged to take my scooter in to get the seat lock sorted out. I went down to the lock-up to get it and tried the key before going out and of course it worked first time. It was inevitable really. I […]

March 7th, 2018 · Comments Off on Scooter dilemma · Life

Last week I came home from work to find my scooter on its side in the front garden. With all the bad weather I thought it might have blown over, with the wind getting under the cover and treating it like a giant sail. Jayne thought that someone might have tried to nick it, and […]

Worth the weight

March 7th, 2018 · Comments Off on Worth the weight · Life

Last week at the hospital, my doctor was very, very upset with me for putting on 8kg since the last time I saw him, and I have been feeling bad about that. I even avoided chocolate all weekend out of guilt. Tonight I weighed myself at home on our hi-tech scales and they had me […]

January 22nd, 2018 · Comments Off on Obligatory summary of 2017 · Life, Music

This weekend I added to my list of travel options for getting around town, by buying a scooter. I intend to keep the mighty Vulcan for cycling, and and intend to walk into the town centre some of the time, but its nice to have a bit more choice, especially when I am in a […]

And pigs might fly

December 16th, 2017 · Comments Off on And pigs might fly · Life

I was watching the news today and they had a royal expert on there. Incidentally, that must surely be one of the most pointless jobs in the world, along with royal corresponant.

I am not a nerd, but…

December 4th, 2017 · Comments Off on I am not a nerd, but… · Life

After a full day (0930 to 1930) doing interviewing for the local Labour party, and after getting a late dinner and going out for a walk with the dogs, it was time to unwind, reading a bit of the book I just started. I turned the page and the top of the next page started […]
