The last two days have been absolutely glorious English weather – azure blue cloudless skies, a temperature in the mid-20s and a cooling breeze. I have taken advantage of it to indulge in one of my favourite pastimes au naturel au jardin, behind a suitable screen, of course, however I wonder what my friends think […]

An update on my wash’n’dry loo. It works like a charm but unfortunately for me, being such an impatient soul, the whole process takes a little longer than I would normally like – the dry takes three minutes! However I have is this problem licked as I can speed read one chapter of Kingsley Amis’s […]

Today this blog officially went live. Within minutes some people responded with very kind wishes. I have a little more tinkering to do it to get as I envisaged it but on the whole I’m quite pleased with the way it is has turned out.

My golfing mate Peter Southwick came this morning to look over the feeding frame. Like the nurse and occupational therapist who came recently he was kind enough to say it was a very good idea. He came up with a couple of very good suggestions for improving the design which I shall certainly follow. After […]

Geriatric golf day at Worthington. Due to the inclement weather few turned up but I did brave the rain and walked round 15 holes and enjoyed the OAP lunch with my old golfing mates after having given them much gratuitous advice during the round! Richard Bamford had his beautiful black lab with him and I […]

25 May 2009 – Bank Holiday Monday

Clavering Village Fete. This has now become such an attraction that thousands of cars converge on the village and the whole thing has lost its rustic charm. When we first came here, 45 years ago, bowling for a pig literally meant that, if you won you took home a dear little piggy, no doubt to […]

I was fortunate enough to be invited to Twickenham today for the Rugby Sevens. It was the most beautiful day and we sat busking in sunshine sinking the odd beer or two. England played magnificently and made it to the final against New Zealand. Unfortunately we have to leave after the semi-final and I did […]

A quiet day at home after all the birthday excitement. I decided to listen again to a very interesting discussion which it taken place on Radio 4. (Saturday 16 May) in the Unreliable Evidence series – entitled The Law and Death. The subject matter was of particular interest to me as it dealt with the […]

Al and I went to stay with Chloe and family overnight in preparation for Al’s 70th birthday celebrations. On Thursday morning we boarded the river bus at Westminster pier and enjoyed a 40 minute journey, with commentary, to Kew Gardens (Al’s Choice). At lunchtime I took the whole family out for a decent lunch and […]

I noticed yesterday, when I was tidying up before dinner, that I could only just get my right hand up to push back the hair over my ear. This is new and I just wonder how aggressive is the deterioration in my arms. I started the day, as I have done for very many years, […]
