Getting Lost and Found in London

8th June 2018

‘I only give Purple Monkey to people I love.  So here.’ Isla shoved the aptly-named purple monkey in my face.  This recentish favorite creature was rescued from an otherwise depressing trip a safari park, back when Pokemon Go was still a thing. Purple Monkey follows Isla wherever she goes, every second Tuesday. I felt quite special when Isla decided I could take PM to The Bloggers Bash. We’d been at Dad’s for a barbecue.  With no marshmallows.  Made no sense,…

Blogging Is Supposed To Be Fun

22nd May 2018

Over the weekend, I met a bunch of groovy people, drank a lot, saw Deadpool 2, kissed my husband at the top of the London Eye. And snagged Second Best Overall Blogger at the Annual Bloggers Bash. I clapped for myself like a seal, and rumors of my ambivalence/sore loser status have been greatly exaggerated.

I may start wearing some make up, all the time.  But not really. Ah’m no bad, as they say over here.…

9th May 2018

Isla’s at school and my coffee is half finished already.  I want to say there’s a balmy breeze outside.  But it’s just a breeze.  Or fresh.  Or a great big wind. You’d be forgiven for thinking it’s October.  And I can’t believe it’s May. Today, I’m writing these words on the giant desk-top I like to call Truman Bubbles. If you’ve been hanging with me a while you may remember Coffee Gate and then Coffee Gate 2.  The times my…

Blogging Is Like A Cup of Coffee

2nd May 2018

Most of my friends live nowhere near me.  This situation is amplified a thousand times when Neil is away for work. He’s not in the army.  He doesn’t work on a boat.  He’s a software engineer.  And working from home requires some city office time.  Apparently. I don’t begrudge that cheeky beer with his mates or his attendance at the pub quiz. Well, maybe a little.  I’m really good at pub quizzes. My point is.  I miss him. The day…
