And in the grand scheme of things five miles might not sound a lot.   Eddie Izzard for instance ran ten times that in a day this week, having run 25 marathons over the previous twenty five days.    The man is a machine.   A hero.  A legend.   Which really…

Anatomy of a desk. I saw this on Facebook today so thought I would share mine. Thanks @bureaudirect #desk #workingfromhome

The joy of working from home is you can work from anywhere.  Bed.  The garden.  The local coffee shop when you get bored.   The kitchen table.  Or a room you call your office. I am on the second office at home, with a brief spell at the kitchen table in…

Don't faint. But there is an actual blog post from me. Rare these days. About the Aldershot Military Museum (not as boring as it sounds)

Seeing there was an exhibition of watercolours from a local artist on display there made Mr B pick the Aldershot Military Museum as our destination for this week’s Saturday afternoon mooch.    To say it was an exhibition was a bit of  stretch since there…

It’s today, International Women’s Day 2016.   I am sure there will be lots  of campaigning going on today.   As there should be of course, possibly some of it being about gender equality.   As is right.  I guess.  I don’t actually want to be equal to men…

That pic up there is our patio.  Was our patio.  Last year I was picked to be one of Karcher‘s “Super Bloggers” (I think my name must have been included on the list in some kind of clerical error) and throughout the year we were the lucky recipients of…

I made a bit of a cock up with one of the souvenirs I brought back from Jordan. On the blog today

In my defence I had been awake for 37 hours when I made this purchase.  And in the three days prior to that point I had only had about 14 hours sleep.  So when I saw the silver bag in the foodie shop at Duty Free in Amman airport I could be forgiven for…

You wait ten years for a post on my blog about Fleet Pond and then you get two in a week. This though is really about taking time out

I need to explain my un-authorised absences over the past few weeks first of all.   For the past month I have been suffering from “cluster headaches”.   A right royal pain in the arse head which are a bit like an ice cream brain freeze, eight or ten times…

On the blog today is Fleet Pond for #HDYGG with @fableandfolk. We've lived on its doorstep for ten years so I thought we should go visit

When asked by a group of bloggers at Britmums how you get into travel writing, Simon Calder, Travel Editor for the Independent replied: Start in your own back yard In our “back yard” is Fleet Pond.  Just half a mile from our front door it is largest…

Lots happened this week.   One was that we got a new bread maker.  The other was that four bananas start to look passed their best.   A happy coincidence that I decided to do something about.
Wait while more posts are being loaded
