Holiday 27

Was a day of writing. Progress is slow but steady. Chapters 16 and 17 are sorted with a load of back filling sentences seeded into previous chapters. Aim today are chapters 18 – 20. Better get a wiggle on. Saturday was also a day with no internet access except via precarious wormholes. The rest of […]

Holiday 26

Was a day out to Rhyl I remember it fondly as a place wherr cars crawled in queues for miles to get into. Alas no more. Since the Sunlife Centre’s demise, the place was empty. Rolling sandy beaches devoid of life stretched for miles. There were seagulls and starlings and a few hardy tourists braving […]

Holiday: 25

Having arrived back from Prague, and after a stop for breakfast, we decided to head to see my parents in the land of Wales and appalling internet. BT have been promising them an upgrade since the end of June. Now mid August, it still hasn’t materialised. A list of never ending excuses falls into father’s […]

Holiday: 23 & 24

There is something quite amazing about an aeroplane. The way it can turn seemingly clever people into unthinking mass of cats in need of herding. Last time we were held up by weather. Stairrods of rain to be precise. It led to a 90 minute delay and a woman who had no idea she couldn’t […]

Holiday: 21 & 22 update

The internet is now working. This does not make any sense at all. I feel it maybe time to sacrifice a coffee to the gods! Or, on second thoughts, drink said coffee myself

Holiday: 21 & 22

Windows decided to update earlier in the week. I now cannot access the internet from my computer. Livid is not the word for my reaction to this. Widowhood of Spiders is on the cloud. I can get to that from other devices but I prefer to type on the Pc. Less chance of erroneous full […]

Holiday: 20

Friday was a day for good news. OH finished his electrical job early and we headed to the city of London cemetery finding the graves, not only two of the first 3 policeman to be killed in the line of duty – Sgts Tucker and Bentley at Houndsditch – but also Dame Anna Neagle and […]
