The baby named for a bet
If you look closely in the photo of Albert House you'll notice this: It's one of two plaster ornaments that used to be sit either side of the steps outside the front door. You'll see one more clearly in the photo of my great-gran and me. (Incidentally the s...

Pride and talking too much
George agreed with me. 'Yes, you did that okay. Do it like that and you'll be fine.' While we'd been walking through the woods I'd been practising what I was planning on saying when leading bible study in Zac's that evening, and I came home feeling confiden...

Swoll or swelled?
I haven't posted for ages because once again life has got in the way. First I should mention that Operation Bombard, whereby I am sending three different manuscripts off to different agents, is resulting in lots of rejections and a quick turn-round. What is...

Cricket-eating, sand-sculpting and ice cream
With Uncle still in hospital life this week has had to include factoring in visits. On Monday there was a rumour that he was being moved to Singleton - much closer to us - but it came to naught. Visiting him though has become like a game of Find the Patient...

The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir who got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe
Two quick book recommendations. After a couple of duff ones from the library I hit lucky again. The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir who got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe by Romain Puertolas. 4* "The first word spoken by the Indian man Ajatashatru Oghash Ra...

I blame Mary Berry AND Paul Hollywood
I should have twigged when the woman in the cake decorating shop looked at me blankly when I asked for acetate. 'It's what they recommend on the internet for chocolate lace,' I explained. Still blank. But you know me, not so easily defeated. So I went to th...

Homes and families
Albert House is being renovated. The house,  place of my birth and my home for twenty-five years,  is being brought into the 21st century. And with it the past is being chipped away. The garden has already been destroyed. The apple trees, my mother's pride ...

Serious holiday planning
Last night I started reading The Spectacle Salesman's Family . I have a feeling I might have tried before and I suspect I will give up fairly quickly this time too. Not because of the story: I think I would enjoy it. No, I'll give up because of the writing ...

Thinking seriously about euthanasia
Uncle is in a busy ward with a variety of other bone-damaged men. Some are young; most are older. One or two are either very old or slightly strange: the man in the next bed yesterday stared, wide-eyed, at me throughout my visit. I'm not sure if he thought ...

I did used to have a brain really I did
So I'm in the Civic Centre and I need to get to the second floor. I walk to the lifts and go to press the button when I stop: which button do I press? Now that's not as stupid as it sounds*, trust me. The choice looked liked this: I was on the ground floor ...

The joy of ... Radio 4
For various reasons I've spent more than usual time on my own in the car recently and I've been tuning in to Radio 4. Each time I do I think I must listen to the radio more often as it's always interesting. Subjects that I wouldn't consider watching on tele...

I thought I was going to die
For the last three weeks we've been doing circuit training outdoors. Week 1 was in the park and involved, in with the other stuff i.e. more running and dips and things, lots of running up and down steps, interspersed with jumping jacks. Week 2 was a cliff p...
