  • I had my hair cut yesterday. The Turkish lad cutting my hair showed me the video of the massacre in New Zealand. To say it’s chilling would scarcely describe it. It’s as though the killer is in one of those poi […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Rhapsody 1 week ago

    Wendy and I went to the Natural History Museum last night to see Bohemian Rhapsody, as staged by the Lunar Cinema. Great films in iconic places.

    They kindly gave me free tickets after I’d said the V […]

  • Well I’ll tell you what… things do seem to have changed. Two or three years ago I was regularly being made to feel very awkward/ being refused entry to buses when the bus had a baby’s buggy in the whe […]

  • My carer ( who is in her 30’s ) has spent her caring career looking after the very old or the very young.. obviously I’m not the latter but I’m not quite the former either.

    Well apparently you have to be qu […]

  • I went to a talk by Michael Palin last week, with Marky P. If you don’t know, he’s a pretty famous fella, old Michael P.

    He’s written a(nother) book, called Erebus – the story of a ship. In the talk he read […]

    • Dawky, in an episode of ‘Who do you think you are ?’, featuring Danny Hardman-Dyer, it transpires that he is descended from Edward 3. Previously, he presented documentaries on international football hooligan ‘firms’.

    • We used to play “Knock Down Ginger” (Knocking on peoples doors and running away”) Also scrumping (nicking) apples from the Vicar’s garden. I have to add in my defence that I was only the lookout. Love Margaret x x x My Brother and I also got banned from Sunday School for being disruptive. Those were the days

    What do you do when repeated efforts to fix something fail ? Well you change tack and try another way, I have learned.

    My looker afterer, G, is a talented girl. There are lots of things she does well, and […]

  • So I’d booked special tickets for a screening of a romantic film inside The Natural History Museum for Valentines night… being the romantic type.

    It’s only about 5 miles from here, so I reckoned an hour and […]

    Oh wow. I’ve been reminded by a lady I used to work with that I actually had a patient ( undoubtedly now deceased ) called Fanny Stribling…

    Thank you Natalie for that very welcome reminder!

    Police questioned two men yesterday… one had drunk battery acid and the other had eaten fireworks.

    They charged one, and let the other one off.

    C’mon… that is funny! 😂

    PS There was a thir […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Chiefs 1 month, 1 week ago

    Well the Kaiser Chiefs were just brilliant, and blimey the iBot didn’t half make it better. For a start I could see the band, and getting through the crowd to the bit I was headed to is about a zillion times m […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Brixton. 1 month, 1 week ago

    Pia and I went to see The Streets in Brixton Academy on Wednesday. Blimey they were good ( but they knew it …🎶 ) and the place was totally rammed.

    Brixton has a few music venues, so it made it tricky th […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Ta! 1 month, 1 week ago

    The other day I careered out of control down a ramp at a station. As I shouted I CAN’T STOP to Wendy, she started to laugh as I shot past her, having not tried to stop me…

    That’s the problem with being a m […]

  • I’ve been for my interview. I filled in the application form and had to put no ( paid ) previous experience.
    I was careful to tick the right boxes about ethnicity etc, and had to clarify in the space for ‘ oth […]

  • Somebody (who shall stay unnamed) went for a lady thing involving wax whilst at mine on the weekend. It made me laugh so I’ll spill. She arrived on time to be asked to go into the room and undress. She asked f […]

  • I saw my daughters at the weekend, with my parents ( their grandparents obviously ).

    We had a fun afternoon together. We talked about their schools a bit. In the course of that chat the subject of school […]

  • The thing about the iBot is that facility to stand me up. I really wasn’t born to be 3 feet 10. Well actually I was born to be about 15 inches, but then I grew a lot later on.

    When you are the shortest p […]

  • The buses to the rescue then. I’ve learned that when in need they are most likely to actually get me to where I need to be.

    There are far more buses than there are trains, and far more bus stops than there a […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Bugger 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Having travelled by 2 trains and 2 buses to get to Wembley in my iBot ( as I want to ‘ stand up ‘ in the Wombats gig ) I get a puncture 10 yards from the entrance to the stadium…,

    That’s me not stand […]

  • I’m not exactly symmetrical or straight am I? However he says that nothing has altered since my op and it’s all holding. As he had to repair a job that was pretty f’d up already, it was the best he could get. […]
