Assorted writers' groups, the odd anthology, occasional readings.  Lots of looking out of the window.  Hello, and thanks for dropping by.

The Game of the Name

Hooray! The most popular baby names list is out! No, I couldn't care less. Yes, I love a bit of a gawp at other people's choices.

I actually don't respond to

Posted on Wed, 25 Mar 2020

I don't really respond to much on social media, unless it's from people I actually know, mainly because I can't be arsed, and also because I feel it's a clumsy way to have a good discussion.  So I come on here, where I'm amongst friends, and...

I don't have anything against

Posted on Wed, 25 Mar 2020

I don't have anything against the individuals in the royal family - like you, I rather pity them.  In any other situation, if you told a child from the moment he or she was born that they could only do one thing when they grew up, whatever their...

This is a lovely read, Ice. 

Posted on Wed, 25 Mar 2020

This is a lovely read, Ice.  Very human, capturing so many little details of what life is like for a lot of people now.  I live on my own, so video-calling, which I'd always regarded as completely unnecessary, has become a lifeline.  My son, his...

I think you may have a point

Posted on Mon, 23 Mar 2020

I think you may have a point here.  I can imagine all those tech-savvy kids, in school or at home, bored out of their minds and devising all sorts of things on their computers that their elders will never understand.  The world may be a very...

There's a lot of all that

Posted on Mon, 23 Mar 2020

There's a lot of all that going around.  I do hope your friend's friend will be well.  As you say, let's hope we have some sort of normality back by this time next year!

At last - something sensible

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

At last - something sensible about Mother's Day!  It's always an ambivalent relationship.  Philip Larkin was completely right, but sometimes you learn to forgive your own and hope your kids will do the same for you.  I love the all-encompassing...

Sorry, I've got something in

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

Sorry, I've got something in my eye.  Absolutely beautiful.  Captures the sadness of the moment and a hope for the future.  I do hope your friend will be well.

Thank goodness for these

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

Thank goodness for these stories of yours.  I haven't got the foggiest idea what's going on most of the time, I only know I end up a cackling heap after I've read them, and I'm loving the musical links.  I 'm not quite sure why 'Even Myrna Loy...

Posted on Sat, 21 Mar 2020

Thank you!  My mog is a very cuddlesome creature, which is quite handy for social distancing, as I am usually covered with cat hair and no-one wants to get near me anyway.

Thanks again for reading!
