I took a trip to Inkpen beacon and Coombe Gibbet on Sunday with my daughter. She hasn’t been before and I had worked out a circular 10 mile route with some good climbs on it. We set out early as it takes around two hours door to door. As we went farther west it seemed… Continue reading Come again
We have now started lockdown 2, which compared to the last one should be called lockdown light. I am now working for another bus manufacturer which is considerably different to the last company I worked for. There doesn’t seem to be the secrecy that prevailed with Wrights, even after the company was taken over the… Continue reading Forward, never Backwards
Allotment The allotment is giving up the last of her goodies but there is still stuff going on, I put the garlic in last weekend and it already putting shoots out. I’m not sure whether to grow it in the greenhouse or outside. Garlic is hardy and the rule of thumb is to plant on… Continue reading Oh no, Joe Porterhouse
Work This week saw me working overnight in east London. I do enjoy having the freedom to roam around my old stomping grounds and love the memories it evokes. At one point I found myself driving through Shoreditch, it was 01:30am. I couldn’t believe how busy it was. The first time I remember going here… Continue reading Doomed to Live
Rant! This week we saw the Met office actually get something right, despite a number of false predictions this week saw us actually get some snow. It’s when this happens, I actually feel embarrassed to be a Brit. It started off at the beginning of the week with a weather warning that most of the… Continue reading Snowmaggedon!!!!!!

So I’m not going to bang on about the commercialisation of it all, or how it is getting away from the true meaning of Christmas, because I’m not sure that… Continue reading They’re skin and craters like the moon
Its been a couple of weeks since my last post, but that’s not to say nothing has been happening. Allotment I have finally got my last courgettes from the plot, I have now dug up both plants, they were starting to suffer from leaf mould and I don’t think they would have bore much more.… Continue reading I’ll be standin on the corner full of gin, when they bring your dead body in.
I write this while sitting on the boat in the middle of Salhouse Broad in Norfolk. Boat This weekend has been long overdue, after a quick clean up and a fettle we were underway again. On our run round we bumped into a few old friends who we haven’t seen for a couple of years.… Continue reading You can stand me up at the gates of hell
A few ups and down this week, but the weekend is here and a trip to the boat beckons. A strange thing happened this week, about found my bad mood had lifted, don’t know why. Radio The bands have been flat again this week with chances of any DX virtually non-existent. I have managed a… Continue reading I’m living in an age, that calls darkness light
We’re now into the thick of the new year and work things are starting to settle down. The period between Christmas and new year sees a real down turn in bus service with a Saturday service operated during this period. The downside is some buses don’t move during this time and we end up with… Continue reading All is not as it seems
