A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool. William Shakespeare. The last of the court jesters was Dicky Pearce who was the Earl of Suffolk’s fool. Born in 1665 he eventually entered the service of the Berkeley family at Berkeley Castle. In 1728, during a performance, […]


On Wednesday, at around midday, Lo, she is a terrible Goddess and I impulsively and without premeditation rejected a spontaneous act of spontaneity. It was a spur of the moment decision. This unpremeditated action resulted in being able to enjoy a delicious peanut butter and lettuce sandwich with added mayonnaise and seasoning to taste. I […]

NO WAY!!!!

There is no way I’m having a bath this weekend. I’ll apologise for the smell now but I’m sure you’ll understand. I hope that your weekend will be less whiffy than the TG’s.


As a causeuse potato aeolist I would just like to say how important accubation is. Indeed this attribute has led me to write this post. If you’re an agelast I fear you have no place here.

By the end of today I will have finished the plastering in the new office. I’ve just got to float and set the plasterboard on the right hand wall, [oh look, the TG is sitting in the sun …… glad she’s managed to get a few minutes relaxation] and the brickwork is going to be […]

…….. and so the work continues dans le jardin …….. The pond was lined and filled yesterday. It now needs landscaping and will have a quaint little rivulet to help aeration. The book says I must be patient and let the water balance itself before bunging some fish in. As goldfish are only about 99p […]
