Planespotting

April 14th, 2014 · No Comments · Life, Technology

We had our grandson, Alfie, visiting over the weekend so I thought I would take him along to the Gatwick Aviation Museum to look at the planes there. In all the time I have lived here I have never got round to visiting before so I figured it was about time. I also decided to […]

Tony Benn

March 15th, 2014 · No Comments · Politics

Though he had been ill for some time, I think Tony Benn’s death was more of a shock than Bob Crow’s, possibly because he has been a fixture for so long I just sort of assumed he would always be around. I saw him speak a few times but only met him once, at a […]

Bob Crow again

March 12th, 2014 · No Comments · Politics

I think this is a better picture of Bob Crow than the one I put here yesterday. I took this one at the 2009 Tolpuddle festival which, by the way, is an event well worth seeing.

Bob Crow

March 12th, 2014 · No Comments · Politics

The news about Bob Crow came as a bit of a shock today, and I’ll admit that a large part of that is the normal reaction of any 51-year-old hearing about a 52-year-old’s sudden death. I was never in Bob’s union, but I have plenty to thank him for. When I worked for the railways […]

Full house

September 9th, 2013 · Comments Off · Life

It has been a bit of a hectic weekend, with three overnight guests on Saturday and the whole family here on Sunday, for the first time ever. Jayne has been a bit tense and panicky all week in anticipation, but it all went very well.

Reasons to be cheerful – part two

February 13th, 2012 · Comments Off · Life, Music

A couple of other little things made this weekend a little bit special. Firstly a few CDs arrived on Saturday morning. Last weekend was Kraftwerk weekend on 6 Music, and after that I was moaning on an online forum about how listening to a few shows on iPlayer I tried to track down the first […]

Nifty Fifty

October 2nd, 2011 · 1 Comment · Life

For my birthday Jayne treated me to a new lens for my camera: the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, which is often referred to as the ‘nifty fifty’. What with one thing and another, I didn’t get round to really trying it out over the weekend, except for a really quick snap of the […]

Crete Uncovered

September 29th, 2011 · Comments Off · Life

As teachers used to say “this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you”. I’m sure nobody wants to read all about my holidays, and I’m not sure I want to write about them but it needs to be done so I can move on, so here are a few thoughts about Crete, […]

Babysitting

July 4th, 2011 · Comments Off · Life

We were babysitting today ((When I say ‘we’ I mean that I was also in the house but Jayne did most of the gushing and cooing and all of the feeding and changing)) , looking after the three week-old granddaughter while her parents went off to Ikea.  To say Jayne has been looking forward to […]

Anorak paradise

April 26th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Life, Technology

Jayne and I went to Amberley museum for the second time in three days today.  They do a deal whereby if you keep hold of your tickets you can return for free within 5 days, so we did.  When we went on Saturday we left without seeing everything because we had to do some supermarket […]
