  • That’s Joker, 1917 and The Parasite… as well as The Irishman… I can say adamantly that ( in my opinion as a punter ) 4 of the Oscars went to the wrong film. Joker and 1917 are by far the best in every categ […]

  • That’s because every time I wheel into an elevator on the Underground or at a railway station, the lift has at least one Chinese person in it, and possibly what looks like half a village…

    Last night at the La Roux gig in Fabric.

  • When you can’t stand up and lean forward into/ over a kitchen sink, you either just don’t do things or you still do them but you do them differently. Today I was cutting up carrots and sweet potatoes, and doi […]

    I went to the theatre last night with Lily. We saw Dial M for Murder. Wow that’s a good play… ever so clever, it is.. Richmond theatre does short runs of plays before they go on elsewhere, I think. Most p […]

    And I’m very happy to say that my daughter, Lily, has again been offered a place at Oxford university, starting in October. She has to get another A in another A level to qualify but that ought be plain sailing t […]

    As since my injury I’ve not been able to read books ( or at least maybe have no urge to, for some reason ) I prefer audiobooks. Well you just ask Alexa to begin where you / it / she left off, and you can listen w […]

  • Well it would seem to be popular with my readers that Wendy came to her senses ( AKA yours truly realised what he’d almost lost ..apologised a fair bit and pledged to change what he can. She accepts tho that s […]

  • Yes, Wendy and I are reunited. Too much gone through, too much intertwined, and too much love to become ex’s.

    We are both very happy about that! ❤️

    And the 🦜🦜s are far safer with her around! […]

  • And thanks to Chris and Rob, then Chris and Sarah, and Tony and Teddy, Christmas Day ( as in the actual one – the 25th ) was just brilliant. When you are primed for not much at all, and then you get pub, mates, […]

    I asked him if they decorated trees with stuff. Well his answer surprised me! He said ‘ not t […]

    • When I worked as a nanny in HK, I recall having a conversation with the Filipino maid who was employed in the same house, she was talking about a ship, I thought she was talking about a sheep and we had completely crossed wires, we laughed until we had tears streaming down our face.

    An ever present difficulty I encounter is having to ask any Carer to do anything ‘ practical’. That’s essentially anything at all which involves the use of a tool. Tools include screwdrivers, spanners, sciss […]
