Nightcrawler*

Jolting out of sleep, I check my watch: 3.45am.  Yuck.  I’m wide awake: morning-awake.  Switching my phone on, reaching for my water bottle, I gulp some down.  It’s annoying, but understandable.  Am, despite what have been telling everyone (why?) nervous about Major Surgery in 2 days time.   Checking Facebook, there are about ten of […]

Some good things: 1.  Met the Keeshond in the attached photo today.  He’s adorable. 2.  Have trial walk with him on Wednesday or Thursday. 3.  It’s the Davis Cup final next weekend. 4.  Whilst the heating has broken at the parentals, am at the flat where it is warm. 5.  Enjoyed some cuddles with the […]

Lloyd George Knew My Father*

“It’s amazing: there are more men here than women,” the septuagenarian lady says to her friend. “I expect that’s because it’s history and politics,” the friend replies. They’re sitting next to me at my ‘Modern British Prime Ministers’ course.  So, if you’re a lady aged over sixty five looking to meet a chap, take a […]

Murder Grins And Bears It*

At the pub that I used to frequent on my dates last year.  Waiting for a couple of friends.  Over there are a wolf and a Labrador.  They are leaving, so my friends may miss seeing the wolf.  Which is a shame. It’s still hot and dry.  We could be in Egypt. Must think of […]

The Hound Of The Baskervilles*

“Darling I think we need to stop the car,” I say.  Seb is driving us to his Mum’s and there is a Rhodesian Ridgeback just wandering along the road: a gigantic orange hound with that black ridge along his spine. “His owner is probably just behind him,” Seb says. Looking down the road, there’s a […]

The Sound And the Furry*

Ooooohhhhh the Day of Enormous Excitement has arrived.  Have been anticipating this event for actual Years: Fourteen whole Years. Need to be at the Venue of Amazingnosity at 6pm. “Please don’t worry about being early as it doesn’t start till 6.45 and I won’t be there till 6 and I don’t want you hanging around […]

A Murder Of Wolves*

Sitting in a cafe in a trendy district of the city with brother.  He’s writing emails and has brought plugs, adaptors and so on.  Thought about bringing phone charger but decided against it and am now regretting this decision as battery down to about 20%. The dog at the table next to us barks and […]
