The decorating is done, with minimal damage.Â The emulsion should come off the kitten’s face eventually.Â The only significant casualty seems to be my bass guitar.Â It was propped up in the cupboard and allowed to fall to the floor, strings down, which broke the nut. Only one end of the nut, so three strings […]

On Thursday I actually had the TV on during BBC’s Question Time.Â I had my back to it and the sound turned quite low, so I wasn;t really paying attention to it until near the end when I hear Dimbleby mention that they were in Colchester. I thought to myself “I wonder if my old […]
Over the weekend it has been hard to ignore Michael Jackson.Â His name was on the front of all the papers in the newsagents, his songs were all over the radio and there was an unfeasibly large display of his greatest hits in HMV.Â Â On top of that there was Q magazine with Jackson all […]

What a clumsy day it was today.Â Â This morning I dropped and broke a cereal bowl while drying it. Later on I was putting the kettle on and knocked over a cup that still had some old coffee in it.Â When I was doing dinner I dropped the lid from the olive oil bottle and […]
