Here comes the sun

July 19th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Politics

Jayne and I went down to Dorset for the day today to see the Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival.  I checked the weather forecast on the BBC yesterday and it gave variations of ‘white cloud’, ‘grey cloud’ and ‘black cloud’ throughout the day, with maximum temperatures of about 18C. What we actually got was bright sunshine, mostly […]

The Tolpuddle experience

July 23rd, 2009 · 2 Comments · Politics

A few days have passed since visiting Tolpuddle so if I write about it now it is not fresh in my mind and I may have forgotten some details, but at least that stops me wittering on about total ephemera. So anyway, here are some thoughts about the event, about the Labour movement in general […]

Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival

July 20th, 2009 · 4 Comments · Life, Politics

Today I went on a day trip to Dorset for the last day of the Tollpuddle Martyrs Festival.  It is a long way to go for a day (nearly three hours each way on the coach) but plenty of people came from even further away and it was a good day out even if it […]

So that was 2006?

December 25th, 2006 · 1 Comment · Life

There is still a week to go before the end, but I am going to assume nothing much will happen in that time – or should that be hope that nothing will happen (bearing in mind the terrorist fears in today’s Observer)? It has been a mixed year really. Music As far as music is […]

I know this sort of behaviour is wrong and should not be condoned and all that, but isn’t there just a little part of everyone that hopes they are still capable of committing such an offence at the age of 95? Must be something in the water down there. I wonder what the warning was…

What I did on my holidays – Wednesday afternoon

August 26th, 2006 · 3 Comments · Life

The end of the trip, and a continuation of the plan to exhaust the children. After a much-needed Dorset cream tea at Studlands to help us recover from the damp of Kimmeridge Bay, we were going to go into Corfe Castle village to see the model village and let Charlie climb a few huge hills […]

What I did on my holidays – Wednesday morning

August 26th, 2006 · 2 Comments · Life

Wednesday morning I was woken by torrential rain. Having no clock or watch in the sleeping part of the tent I got up and Jayne and I sat outside under the gazebo and had a coffee, wondering if it would ever stop raining. Then we dug out a watch and found out that it was […]

Another holiday snap for the benefit of Kerron and his obsession with beavers.

What I did on my holidays – Tuesday afternoon

August 26th, 2006 · Comments Off on What I did on my holidays – Tuesday afternoon · Life

Or… another chance for me to inflict my holiday snaps on the world Anyway, the original plan on Tuesday was for the kids to go swimming at Lulworth Cove afterwards, but the weather was a little miserable for that. The revised plan was that Jayne would drop us off at Lulworth Cove and then go […]
