Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East & West London, Kent and Surrey (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 224 Saturday 29th September until Friday 5th October 2018.


I don’t blow my trumpet often; I tried once and was told by a very nice constable to never do that again otherwise I would end up in A&E.  But it was my bday this week.  This is partly why I don’t have much in the way of content (it’s also been very busy at work).

In many people’s eyes I’ve reached a milestone year, personally I’m surprised I have made it this far.  On the big day MOZ and I drove to Rochester, there was no pressure to do anything.  Highlights of the day were spending time with my best friend, eating cake, finishing season 10 of “Friends” and looking through a telescope in the garden.  Plus, finding out that in early November MOZ and I will be doing Ariel Yoga again.

Until this week I’d never had a bday party, this all changed when I arrived at my sister’s house the day after.  For a couple of hours I was spoilt like a princess, all be it an old, fat, large bottomed wrinkly (no! I don’t have a wrinkly bottom, I mean wrinkles on the face) princess, but still a princess.  We partied, eating home cooked food and cake that Anoodle chose.  And of course, I still danced like a loon around the living room.

Big thanks to in no particular order to.  Sigrida for the message from her family.  Chatting with Mum, who told me the story of how she wanted to finish her Pilchard curry and watch “Coronation Street” before going to hospital to have me.  Catching up with Helen.  Big love to MOZSAZTimAnoodle and JBomb for a wonderful couple of days.   And far too many people who said nice things on “The Book of Faces”.

Next week I PROMISE this ramble will be back to normal.  All the usual complaining that you have come to know and love!  If you have a topic that you would like me to moan about then please contact,

And Finally, Now For Something Completely Different……

While at work I heard someone behind me say “John Cleese”, a comedy GOD was filming just outside of the office.  But because I was having far too much fun talking BollX to unhappy people about money that they haven’t paid, I didn’t go outside.  “I chose poorly”.

Ingenious use of a beauty product of the week……

Passing a hairdresser, I saw an employee waving a hairdryer about blowing leaves and other shiz on the pavement outside.  The electrical lead was pulled tight going back through the doorway waiting to grot any customer or employee trying to pass.  Seeing this made me smile, not the grotting idea!  But the novel use of the hairdryer.
