Time Traveller

Sometimes I have an idea stuck in my head for ages while I work out the details but this one has been hanging around the longest, maybe for a few years and I think now is the time to release it into the wild. Hopefully it won’t just stall and crash, so here goes….. Time…

I see strange things 2

While I’m working on new posts on subjects such as Skateboarding, Books and Time Travel I thought I’d share another Strange Thing Is it just me or do other people also notice the strange things I see… On a recent train journey I saw a field, a big field, a big empty field, a big…

Silence

Sorry about the recent lack of posts, I’ve been a bit preoccupied with things, in particular the passing of my mum. I plan to get back on the writing horse very soon and have some new posts busy spinning around in my head. Well, here’s a thing, I wrote those two sentences and couldn’t think…

I see strange things 1

Occasionally I see things, odd things, sometimes very strange things and often there’s no one else around to witness them. So I thought I’d share them here…. A short walk from where we live is the harbour/marina with many yachts, cruisers and barges moored up. For the last few years around this time the owners…

Back to Reality

The worst part about going away is coming back. Not that we don’t like where we live, it’s just that it means that we’re back to reality. But it’s reality that pays for our trips. All I need to do is work out how to make the trips pay for themselves and we’d be sorted….

Down the Market

We’ve been to a couple of markets while we’ve been here in Goa. The first was at Anjuna which is probably the best known in Goa. Apparently it ….

Blood

I’ve given blood, actually it wasn’t given it was stolen. Taken by the hungry little mozzy feckers. At least I’m assuming it’s mosquitoes, maybe there’s a tiny little vampire with one tooth on the prowl in Goa. I don’t object so much to the removal of blood what I really, really don’t like is the…

Dame

It’s all Dame Judy’s fault you know. Floating through India on a cloud of serenity with her pashmina flowing out behind her without a care in the world. Negotiating traffic as if walking through mist, shopping in the market with just a hint of genteel bartering and talking with the locals as if they were…

Limbo

Thank <insert deity’s name here> for technology. If I were trying to do this on a manual typewriter there would be a small hillock of screwed up paper in the corner, I’d be covered in ink from the ribbon, high on the fumes from tippex, spaced out on coffee and generally just not happy at…

Drops

Doris and EyeDrops.  Doris had a bit of conjunctivitis so the vet gave us some gloop in a tube to put in her eyes. One or two drops per eye twice a day. On day one she wasn’t sure what was going on and after a bit of wriggling we got some in each eye….

Write in the Sun

You may remember a little while back I mentioned maybe trying to write while on a beach in Goa, well here I am! Not on the beach but by the pool at the moment.   I’m not sure if it’s helping with the writing yet but it’s a fantastic place to find out. In the…

Rambling

Do you ever have those dreams where you do something amazing or invent something that everyone wants and it changes the world but you can’t quite see what it is. I did. I had this fantastic idea for this book that made everything I’ve written so far just a foreword. Do I know what this…
