Houdinis in Gibraltar

In which our heroine wastes half a day to be told the blatantly obvious.

1st August - Yorkshire Day

HAPPY YORKSHIRE DAY to all Yorkshire folk wherever you may be living :-)

An excellent post from Vicky summing up the sense of Yorkshire pride in our home county. I too rebelled against the 1974 Local Govt Act that took away our precious Ridings and always addressed mail to my parents in the West Riding. Not West Yorkshire. It was a very big issue. It still is. So this reblog, thanks to Vicky, is not just for her, but also for Dawn in Queensland, Aus; Sandra in Spain up the road from me, and Kev who is actually in 'Ull. The only one of us in Yorkshire. Like Vicky they are all from the East Riding, whereas I'm from t' mill towns in t' West Riding. And to everyone who supported the Yorkshire start to the Tour de France, you did our county proud.

Summer hours

I was dreading physio.

I felt as though another GA and op would be preferable.

The appointment was made. I counted off the days and decided each day would be an opportunity to practise a stagger/limp/hobble. 1,555 more words


Saturday snippets from the sofa

Our government tells us that we have a huge surplus, said one of Partner’s construction workmates who he met in the street.

I looked up the budget speech (held 30 June). 1,175 more words


Weekend post from the sofa

All bloggers are writers. Some good, some mediocre, some bad, and some truly abysmal.

This weekend’s post from the sofa is inspired by a couple of authors whose blogs I’ve commented on this week. 1,260 more words
