THE SUN IN ALL IT’S GLORY

Even at this time of year the solar panels chuck out quite a lot of electrickery … for about 1/2 an hour a day … when it isn’t cloudy or raining … or snowing.

When these specific conditions happen to collide in celestial harmony we charge round the house turning on the washing machine, the dishwasher, [...]

CHRISTMAS 2015

It’s that time again.

As usual we’ll be celebrating with a refreshing glass of warm water for breakfast, followed by gruel for the main festive meal. The added holly leaves really get us into the holiday mood!

The afternoon is the time for playing games, my favourite being charades where I always carry a sign depicting π [...]

REMEMBER, REMEMBER …..

For the first time in over a decade we’re in England for the beginning of November.

My birthday follows Guy Fawkes Day, a national celebration of individualism celebrated by many.

Although I’m missing the Indian summer of Portugal and the grand people over there I’m quite looking forward to experiencing the traditional celebrations.

The plan is to buy [...]

SPRING SPRUNGING

We followed an old carting trail through the bluebelly woods where bushels were sent to the weavers of merkins to be be woved in days of yore.

We planned an adventure trail where stumps and logs and roots of outstanding natural naturalness would fascinate and empty wallets.

A DAY IN THE LIFE.

Lo, she is a terrible Goddess had an appointment at the hairdressers so I took the opportunity to pop into The Twisted Gusset for my usual half a lager with a sherry chaser.

I was greeted by Irene.

“Oh, she’s at the hairdressers.”

“They’re very good you know. I had some highlights done there just the other [...]

THERE’S SOMETHING VERY NICE …

… about bare feet.

Babies feet are just lovely. A bare footed Goddess is sexy. The bare footed male smells less.

HONESTLY, THERE’S SO MUCH CRAP

I would urge people to read The Hidden Persuaders by Vance Packard, published in 1957. I read this at school as part of one of the courses I took. I always take with a pinch of salt newspapers, the news on the telly and any other communications that I can’t experience on a personal level. [...]

THIS CREATION …

… from the inspirational and creative genius that is Scissorshop …

… applies to all aspects of life of course. However relationships top the list … so I’m told. Very firmly on occasions.

BATTLING ON …

… the fight continues for the right to sit or lie down and put things away in drawers.
The Flatpack War of 2014 in Central Portugal was a close run affair with the comfort of Lo, she is a terrible goddess at stake.
The pictures below are quite shocking. I suggest you have a cup of tea [...]

ART – AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN

My work practice
Sometimes thoughts collide and create unforeseen connections. These are often fleeting and nothing is done about them. Occasionally they are so interesting that the connections are worth exploring for a while, accompanied by a mental “Hmmm”. Very rarely these thoughts coalesce into a concrete idea that might be worth making. Then the decision [...]
