“And you will be so happy to know,
I’ve come alone, it’s over.”

Hi, I’m a bit stumped on how to start this post. Not through any requirement to put out a massively important message, I guess it’s just breaking in the white space. Did you ever get that feeling when you got a new exercise book at school? That first sheet was somehow sacred because it was unmarked and full of what might be. Then again, I may just be being a bit of a mentalist. 😉 Anyway, let’s start with some good news shall we? As way of a change 😉 Whatever synergy it was that’s sent the old Black Dog on holiday has kept working its mojo. I’ve felt… well, just kinda normal over the last few weeks. Okay, as […]

“Look at you now, look at you then, see how you will be”

Howdy, Hi everyone out there in t’interweb land. All sorted for Xmas yet? I braved the shops the other day (with assistance from Little Miss – who slept through it – bless!) and got a few more gifts for all and sundry. I was amused to hear Radiohead’s No Alarms being played in one of the shopping malls. It’s a great track and makes a change from the usual Xmas numbers they wheel out every year.

What will the world be like when they […]

I wonder if bin men get danger money for Christmas? 🙂 P. went out with her friend K. yesterday evening. I’d completely forgottern about it – and, bless her – she says laughing, “I’ll be back after 9.30 at the earliest – so have fun” and she gave the trunk in the spare room a kick. “Just make sure you get your eyeliner off this time!” That was a very welcome Xmas surprise and one I took complete advantage of! Unusally for me, I […]

Killer Heels

Despite being a miserable old mare sometimes, I must confess to enjoying the xmas season so far. Sure, we’ve got a sh**load of wrapping to do, but on the plus side, P. and I have been to the works’ xmas do and have just about finished the christmas shopping. The xmas do was a blast. We both had a very nice time dancing the night away and the food and company was excellent. Sometimes I wonder if this is the best bit about xmas. Meeting up with people you’ve not seen for ages and sharing the good times. You can stick your high street queues and novelty markets. 🙂 Well, nearly… The xmas party season is the time for some […]
