Not much sleep this week!  Too much to do, and the only way I’ve been able to fit it all in is to actually get up even earlier than normal.  I’ve done 16 hour days every day this week, but it’s been fun so I’m ok for now, but next week’s looking even worse (as […]

My week held a surprise … no, NOT a book deal (sigh); attending a Stand-up Comedy Course run by my friend Sarah Archer (right). There I was, just minding my own business (toilet-cleaning in my Wednesday cleaning job), and had flicked over to listen to Sarah doing a spot on local radio.  She mentioned that […]

It’s Friday afternoon as I begin this week’s blog.  The sun came out today.  Bloody nuisance.  Makes it so bright in my office that I have to squint.  Give me dull and overcast any day of the week … unlesss it’s 25 degrees+ and then it can be as sunny as it likes. When I […]

You know how I’m always hoping to be able to give you some good news regarding my book?  I’ve had my fingers crossed about something for a while, but found out this week that – alas – it wasn’t to be.  An Agent has had my book since October (and had seemed rather keen), but […]

Boy, blog-time comes round quickly!  Hope you all had a nice Valentine’s Day …  I haven’t had a Valentine’s Card since Saint Valentine was a boy, but was thrilled to see an ecard in my inbox on Monday. Can you even begin to imagine my disappointment though (serious face), when I discovered it was actually […]

(Note: WordPress continues to cause me formatting problems.  I’m trying to fix it, but this blog isn’t laid out as I want it to be, so bear with the big gaps between lines in places, gaps missing between sentences and  ‘ ‘ ” ” being the wrong way round in places – like here – […]

I need to change the layout of this blog but don’t know how.  All these little boxes and headings on the screen look like an aircraft cockpit and mean absolutely nothing to me. Everyone says WordPress is easy.  It probably is if you understand ‘PC-speak’, but for me, it just makes what I think should be […]

I’ve had a couple of weeks of being prodded and poked … it’s hell in Tesco during the evening rush.  No, just kidding! Mostly dentists and hygienists actually – as well as a ‘ladies’ appointment that wasn’t a bundle of laughs.  It’s enough to put you right off lettuce … The upside though, is that now […]

Where did the week go: again?  No news of any real interest again this week, but that won’t stop me rambling on, will it? Actually; there is something.  Just to let you know in advance that I’m going to be on Rosie Wilby’s Radio show “Out in South London” on Tuesday 1st February.  It’s on […]

“It’s my blog and I’ll cry if I want to …” And even though I didn’t want to, I did!  I’ve got so much to say this week that I’ll have to leave some of it out.  As I start to write this, it’s 1.00 pm Saturday and I’m in my office for the first […]
