Have you joined me in my closet yet? No? Please don’t delay. You are missing out on some of my most profound musings (joking). But why the closet? Well from a sound perspective it works beautifully. It is a small well sound proofed room and successfully cuts out the echo. I got that hint from… Continue reading Inside my closet
That’s what my dad used to call us when we watched too much television. What a joke! We only had two channels at the time and we loved it. 5 o’clock would be time to rush into the house so we could watch Dr Who or whatever else might be on “Children’s Hour”. In those… Continue reading Square-eyed
Hey, my name is Wally and a funny thing happened to me on the way to the feeding grounds. I guess I was just being lazy by wanting to hitch a ride on that little iceberg but it seemed like a good idea at the time. To be honest I was getting sick and tired… Continue reading Gosh, I must have dozed off
I was quite optimistic when I started off this morning. Bright and early into the office, a nice cup of coffee on my desk and my files stacked up neatly.

I haven’t been there yet (notice the optimism in that statement). But Antarctica – sorry I will have to pass.… Continue reading Antarctica – I will pass thanks

Just looking at the map you could see that this would… Continue reading Visiting the ships’ graveyard
Are you like me? Just hating your own cooking and sick of the same few dishes that you have been serving up endlessly over the last year of this pandemic? For someone who used to eat out quite a lot this has been a real penance. You have probably bumped into me at Safeway wandering… Continue reading Home cooking ain’t so good
So darling readers – yesterday I received news that the Oceania world cruise for 2023 sold out in about five hours. My goodness me – that pent up demand they keep talking about might be on the horizon. All that money we have saved by not eating out, not needing new work suits, shoes or… Continue reading Around the world – a little story
