Happy bday this week to my brother Paul.

20190529_073849

My friend from April rang on Monday from Germany to catch up telling me about her adventures since we said a hurried goodbye a couple of weeks ago.  I casually mentioned it was bank holiday her reply “another one”!

The end of May is a said time for Monday to Friday workers.  Over the last seven weeks there has been Easter which of course is two days off, then Mayday at the start of May and this week’s Spring bank holiday.  After the telephone call I did a little research.  It turns out that the UK, Hungry and The Netherlands have the lowest number of bank holidays in Europe with eight.  The country with the highest is Finland with 15 (I have a couple of friends there, no wonder there always smiling).  Maybe this is the real reason that so many people in the UK want to leave the EU!  Outside of Europe, India and Colombia have 18 days while Thailand, Lebanon, South Korea and Japan only have 16.  If you have been reading this shiz for a while you will know I love to travel and am desperately looking to escape London, maybe I should be making plans to settle in one of these countries.

I can only speak for myself, but those eight days are precious, because I don’t have to get up before sparrow fart! sit on the tube or suffer the office!

20190527_114534 “Dropped by a Fox (probably) in the back garden”. 

The next bank holiday is end August, then it’s a long wait until Crimbum.  There was talk a few years ago about moving some of the days around to space them out better.  As well as a political party who said that if they were elected (they weren’t) they would create a new bank holiday.  The idea of adding a new date is a good, but I wouldn’t want the current dates messed around with.  Imagine if things went the other way and the number bank holidays were cut to help the economy.  Within hours there would be hordes of people on the streets.  Surly no politician would ever consider that or would they!

20190529_093906 “Its the time of year, again”.

Bank holidays are a time for people to relax and decompress from the normal stress of the working week.  For many this means sitting in holiday traffic jams.  Which are made worse because of train engineering works that take place closing lines and stations, adding to the misery on the countries crumbling road network.  Then there are the loving sprogs constantly saying that there bored every few minutes.  The parents (or other care giver) are probably glad to be going back to the hell that is work and normal routine after the stress of statutory day off.  That’s the beauty of being single, I do what I want, with no accountability to anyone.  Though I have also “enjoyed” terrible traffic on the odd Bank holiday when I foolishly decided to venture beyond the front garden. Seriously everyone loves a bank holiday, but it would be nice if there were a few more.  I wonder if my friends in Finland have room for a small one (before anyone says it, I know that in reality I am a huge lardy arse, but they might have a garage) I could earn my keep by cleaning out there Sauna.

20190530_205600 20190530_205321 “MOZ crushing her 32gms of mixed nuts (more on that next week).

And Now For Something Completely Different……

20190526_201601 “Such a cutie”.

They say, “good things come in small packages”.  This is certainly the case with the smallest member of the household, the adopted Hamster.  Its only when I clean out her home, a multi-level cage with plenty to occupy her including several houses that she takes over the living room.  Everything gets dismantle allowing me to give all the components a good clean.  If you were wondering, while this takes place the little girl is running around, burrowing in sawdust or asleep in a tube inside a huge translucent plastic storage crate.  This is when we can handle her better.

20190519_003736 “Taking over the living room”.

She doesn’t ask for much, a few nuts!  Running from hand to hand and using me as her personal loo by peeing and pooping in my hands, what I call a Hamster blessing!  So, the least I can do is make sure that she is comfortable.  If I stopped 100 people in the street most of them would say that Hamsters are boring, because they don’t show emotion like a cat or dog.  How wrong they would all be!  She shows plenty of emotion in her own way.  I find cleaning out her home really therapeutic.  The best things really do come in small packages.  She give me so much love, it’s the least I can do, make her happy and as comfortable as possible.

And Finally……

Taking a picture I said to my friend who was reading and not looking at me “I’m taking a pic of my Beaver (a small gift from Canada) for RAC”.  It got the smutty laugh I expected.

Week, 257 Saturday 18th until Friday 24th May 2019.

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

Week 257 Saturday 18th until Friday 24thMay 2019.

IMG_5830

Happy 18th bday this week to Spike the Cat.

FB_IMG_1558199712159 “Spike with my card” (Pic by Jane Sparks).

I love a bargain, be honest who doesn’t!  When I see something cheap a small primeval part of my brain starts to fizz with excitement.  That little area probably shines brighter than London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks if seen in an MRI.

20190520_170818 20190521_095640 “Taken 12 hours apart”.

A few weeks ago, an email popped in my inbox from “the” major internet shopping company, notifying that I had a £5 voucher to use by midnight Monday 20 May.  This was only remembered when I saw the email again last Sunday afternoon!  The word discount started a chain reaction, making my brain sizzle so much that it produced an overdose of brain ooze flooding the soggy mass in my skull with excitement.  Of course, I didn’t want to make a mess on my friend’s sofa if any excess ooze seeped out of my head, so I had to use the voucher.  I’m told those kinds of stains are a bugger to remove from upholstery.  A discount like that is retail crack, its additive.

20190524_101244.jpg “I was not stalking the Major, honest”.

 

It’s time for me to be open and extremely honest with you.  I have lots of “stuff”!  In fact, I have so much stuff that I am paying a fortune in storage monthly.  Do I really need more, of course the answer is no!  But the buzzing and fizzing around my brain said yes!

20190524_19111820190524_191204 “A little something i wrote for Celestial Toyroom, the magazine for The Doctor Who Appreciation Society (DWAS)”.

Of course, I realise that particular Sunday afternoon could have been spent more constructively (such as searching for a new job or an agent) instead of looking for something to buy.  A lot of time was wasted trying to buy products sold by a third party; if only I had read the small print.  Then I found something that I JUST had to have, a six-disc DVD boxset.  All six films I have seen in the comfort of a cinema, and four of them I already owned on various formats (smoke signals, semaphore, wax cylinder, morse code, VHS and DVD) squirreled away in my lock up.  Why do I need another physical object when these films can be plucked out of the air by downloading them?  Two words “special features”!  I can sit for hours watching the specials, which are sometimes there better than the feature.  It did cross my mind that I am spending £ 16.95 just to get a £5.00 reduction that money could have gone to my future travel plans.  But the discount drug had really gripped me, my finger pressed confirm helping make the online giant even richer!

20190524_191250 “A very cute puppy, spotted on the way to work”.

As I have already said I have so much “stuff”, and really should be downsize not add to the shiz collecting dust.  But companies online and physical know that I, we, are attracted to or in my case addicted to a reduction!  In the supermarkets while pushing the trolley through the isles I am constantly looking for discounts labels.  Most of the reduced items I buy I wouldn’t normally purchase at full price.  Of course, the shops want to sell these cheap because they don’t want to lose money, but it also saves them asking staff look through each individual item to only throw them away (a sole destroying job, I’ve done it).

20190523_125027 “Trying to keep a low profile”.

All of us should really only buy what we need.  Buying less would send a message to manufacturers to make smaller numbers of less popular products (this could be anything, doesn’t have to be food) which would save precious resources that the planet is short of!  And maybe save them money, that might reduce future prices.  I realise this is a very simplistic way of thinking but if we all did buy less and were not so tempted to impulse buy maybe changes would happen.  I definitely need to be less influence by the offer of a few quid off.

20190521_095856 20190514_134941.jpg “Beside the river, before work”.

In the meantime, I am still going to really enjoy my boxset.  If you bring popcorn (salted) and are over the age of 18 (the boxset is rated 18) then you’re welcome to join me for a marathon of acid blood, Xenomorphs, gore and a pussy cat.

And Finally……

anaiamarsjessemars “Boarding passes, these names are going to Mars on NASA’s 2020 rover”.

A friend heard a colleague say “the flap was open and the thing was dangling out”.  Luckily this was a conversation about the work van having been recently refueled and not something more sinister.

leomarsnicomars “If you want your name to go to Mars look at go.nasa.gov/Mars2020Pass “.

My friend said to me late one evening “are you taking your beaver upstairs”.  I won’t lie; I stopped in my tracks for a few seconds processing this.  My gaze followed her down to rest on a small status of a Beaver that my Canadian friend April had given me. After lots of smutty laughing I carried the gift upstairs.  Yes, I can confirm I do have a beaver in my bedroom.

Week 256, Saturday 11th until Friday 17th May 2019.

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

Week 256 Saturday 11th until Friday 17thMay 2019.

Part 2 of April’s visit to London (and surrounding counties).

20190508_204014

This week’s blog as it says above is the continuation of my friend April adventure in London. For full disclosures there some pictures that were “technically” taken last week.  But because that blog was so full of shiz which was threatening to flood over the edge and make a mess on that expensive flooring you have recently laid.  I made the editorial decision to carry them over to this week (if that cheating, send your complaints to Aries the Hamster at the usual address).  Please go to misfitsmidlifecrisis.com for the previous week’s blog number 255.

20190509_215955 20190509_220019 “I was so excited to be back at my fave building in the world“.

In this week’s ramble April visit’s my favourite building in the world and at one-point was feet from a genuine “Hollywood” superstar (unfortunately there are no pictures of this).  There is also a showdown with “Lunge” in a bowling alley.  Plus, April meets members of my family and makes new friends.

20190511_170234 “I love my mum”.

Early Tuesday morning I said goodbye to April, her time in the UK was over. Because she needed to be at St Pancras before the tubes started I drove her into town. During the drive, I got lost which involved a U turn that might get me into trouble (fingers crossed it doesn’t) stopped a couple of times to check where we were and pulled into a petrol station to ask for directions. The man behind the counter was very helpful confirming that we were on the correct road, but did question why I was using a paper map! All I said was “why not”, personally you can’t beat a good old-fashioned map in my opinion!

20190512_160215 “My friend is an Angel”.

At St Pancras, the sun was coming up over Kings Cross station, so I thought it would be nice to have one last picture. However, after being stationary for a few seconds (no exaggeration) a man came running to inform us that I couldn’t park there! The result was no last picture with the sunrise in the background and the goodbye was very short and sweet. While trying to wave goodbye as I steered the car around, I suddenly remembered a note that I had written the night before (this was the 5th draft) which was thrown out of the window for April to catch. Not quite the ending to the week I had hoped, but it will be memorable. With tears rolling down my cheeks I was transported back 33 years to Vancouver station when we said goodbye after our journey from Ontario. After a lovely week together in London, I really felt sad and upset that it was time to say goodbye again.

During the last week one important part of my life met other important aspects of my life. If honest I never thought they would ever meet, I am really pleased that they did.

April, a week ago you only knew me in Blighty. Now you know MOZ and Mum, who think you are very special. Then there is Lunge and Anoodle & Jbomb who all really enjoyed spending time with you. I know for a fact that you are always welcome to visit and stay with us. Thank you for an amazing week, the reality of work and normal life is an issue, but I will make positives out of any negatives, and remember what you told me. Thank you for being my friend these last 33 years and thanks for visiting. Happy travels in France and Germany have a safe journey home. Lots of love your friend Dana.

Talking about movie franchises and how they are cash cow. April came up with the term “money moo”.

At Liverpool Street station sat on a train in the front carriage waiting to leave. A woman with a very squeaky pink case on wheels made the train driver open the cab door to look down the carriage because he was worried there was a fault with the train. This made everyone including the slightly embarrassed lady laugh.

Week 255, Saturday 4th until Friday 10th May 2019.

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

Week 255 Saturday 4th until Friday 10thMay 2019.

20190508_204014

From Wednesday 8th until Tuesday 14th of May I have a friend visiting from Canada (via Scotland). This means that for the next two blogs I am going to pretend to be a tourist in London, a city I have spent far too long in.

First a little background (It’s all content). In 1986 while visiting Canada I travelled on the Trans Canadian railway from Toronto to Vancouver and back again. At Thunder Bay a woman got on who was also travelling to British Columbia. For the next three days we spent every hour together. Saying goodbye to my new friend April in Vancouver was emotional and difficult. I felt I knew her so well even though we had actually only known each other a couple of days.

I am so pleased to report that we remained friends ever since, first using snail mail, then emails and now social media. We don’t have a lot of contact, but my Thunder Bay friend has been a constant in my life ever since. Not a single Crimbum or bday goes by without me receiving a card, no matter where I have lived. When April announced last year she was making her first visit to the UK, meeting family in Scotland before arriving in London (then onto France and Germany) I knew we would spent time together. I am really looking forward to spending time with my friend after all these years, as well as seeing the capital through her eyes.

So this is “Part One of pretending to be a tourist in London”.

Week 254, Saturday 27th April until Friday 3rd May 2019.

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

Week 254 Saturday 27th April until Friday 3rd May 2019.

IMG_5830

First, a trailer for the next two weeks of this blog!  From the 8th until 14th of May, I have a friend from Canada visiting the capital for the first time.  This means that during the next couple of weeks I will write about seeing London through the eyes of a tourist.  Living in the city I have been to a lot of the top tourist attractions, but of course I see them from a Londoners point of view.  Maybe queuing for extortionately priced London tatt “made in China” with a visitor might give me a new appreciation for the city.

20190427_132239 “I am officially A Late Night Loser” #89″.  

So, join my friend April (as a Canadian I wonder if I can bribe her with as many pictures of Michael Palin as a Lumberjacks in women’s clothes as she can stand, to write about her experience here. It saves me coming up with content) MOZ and myself as we go on the tourist trail of a city that many consider one of the most exciting in the world (personally, I don’t!).  You never know this might change my opinion of London.

20190501_191431 “Its Chocolate!  Don’t worry, I am a good Aunt”.

And now for this week’s ramble.

20190502_185701 “7pm Thursday evening”.

Every couple of weeks I attend a Frazzled Café (http://www.frazzledcafe.org), during the meeting the facilitator could hold up a white piece of paper if the subject of the conversation goes off topic or a speaker is hogging the conversation.  Please don’t imagine that this is being used all the time, it’s an aid to help the conversation between participants flow and to allow all to speak if they want.

20190430_235212 “Noticed an interesting message scrolling along the bottom of the call info board at work”.

Could this be the future of communication, forget expensive folding phone and other wizardry!  Just think if we all carried instead of a piece of paper or small white card to inform the people that the conversation has dried up and should be put out of everyone’s misery. Picture the scene you’re with a person who is droning on and on, your eyes have glazed over your only response is the occasionally grunt to confirm that you are still conscious. Even this doesn’t stop them from continuing to yak!  That would be an ideal time to pull out a little white card.  Maybe the system could be adapted so that on one side in large friendly letters the word “STOP” is printed in red!  This would be perfect for those occasions when you need to end a conversation in an emergency.

20190503_095316 20190503_095602 “Spring really is coming”.

Life really would be so much easier for all if we all had a little card.  Here are examples that immediately spring to mind.  Sitting in a team meeting where nothing of any importance is being said, hold up the card!  A Skype conversation has run its course, then show the card! A card like this would be invaluable on public transport, for instance when annoying people conducted very loud phone conversations.  If a group of commuters all held up their cards maybe the person might realise that they should either end the call or move to a different carriage or alight from the train!  Imagine sitting in a job interview, you have heard enough about how wonderful it is to work in an open plan office, then hold up the card!  How about when you are sitting in a famous corporate coffee establishment, enjoying a sugary bucket of gloop.  The person you are with or another customer nearby is chatting away and not allowing you to sip your over expensive beverage.  Then whip out the card, which afterwards it could serve as a coaster to protect the furniture.

20190428_185103 20190428_185018 “Rushing through Abney Park Cemetery.  Will return to spend more time, very interesting place”. 

Eventually there would be white card emojis on computers, phones and all social media sites.  Think of all the pointless typing that you do because you can’t bring a text conversation to an end.  All the time saved because of using the card emoji would allow you to do something less boring instead.

20190429_100036 20190429_100017 “A peaceful walk before the madness of work”.

Don’t get me wrong, I spend a huge amount of time boring people (not just with this blog) for instance when I ramble on about obscure 60s black and white Doctor Who.  Even though I can sense that the person in front would rather poke their eyes out with a cocktail stick, they politely allow me to carry on boring them.  If they produced a white card, I wouldn’t subject them to anymore torture and move on and find a fresh victim!  During a Frazzled cafe meeting if I see the facilitators hand crawl towards the paper/ card it makes me smile, and certainly keeps me “on topic”.  I seriously think this could be a good idea, let me know what you think.  Let’s start a trend!

20190501_214631 “Not my hat!”.

And Finally……

At work I listened to a recorded message to ring a customer back.  Due to the recording being unclear I didn’t want to say what I though the name was.  For once I was cautious and “choose wisely” as the women’s name was nothing like Miss Sexton.  Phew only “just” dodged that bullet.

Week 253, Saturday 20th until Friday 26th April 2019.

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

Week 253 Saturday 20th until Friday 26thApril 2019.

IMG_5830

I had not planned on starting this week’s blog like this, but I needed to address what happened last Sunday.  Easter day was tinged with sadness when I heard the news of multiple explosions in Sri Lanka.  You might ask how this affected me, living in London!  My father came from Ceylon now Sri Lanka and I still have relatives there.  Family are safe and well, but they know people who have been affected.  Of course, my heart goes out to all those affected.

20190424_192920 “Someones waiting for the tooth fairy to arrive”.

I have said this before, sorry for repeating myself.  We live on a ball of rock travelling around the sun.  Humans pride themselves on being the most intelligent inhabitants on the planet. We have created amazing technology and produced beautiful art, but in my uneducated opinion we are still just animals!  Sorry, but from this lardy meat sacks point of view we are just clever animal that cover themselves with cloth.  This is a view I have had for a long time; it’s not just because of what happened last weekend.  I don’t like the fact I am 50, but I wouldn’t want to be young these days with all the political instability and changing global climate.  Personally, I fear for humanity’s future!

20190423_094300.jpg “Not my fave number”.

And Now For Something Completely Different……

IMG-20190421-WA0014 IMG-20190421-WA0011 “Arriving at the scene of the crime”.

The Bank Holiday weekend was a scorcher.  In weather like this my natural state is to find shade and stay in it, spending hours in a garden is not something you would normally see me do.  Gardens are not my natural habitat.  I like visiting and looking around them!  And I fully appreciate all the hard work that goes in to making a garden beautiful.  Many members of my family are green fingered; I just don’t have the patients.  Over the long weekend my friend needed a little help with hers, so the shorts came out (not a pleasant site for anyone) and I started to cut the grass. The constant motion of going back and forth is slightly hypnotic especially while listening to a funny podcast (let me recommend Strange Times ep 299) or the radio.

20190421_162333 IMG-20190421-WA0013 “I was pleased with what i had done”.

Due to my friend’s garden being long, every now and then I would stop for a well-earned break standing in the shade looking back feeling proud of a job well done! (a very alien feeling for me).  My grass cutting skills are adequate, I wouldn’t win any award.  Even though I hate working in a call centre, there’s no point saying to my manager that I’m quitting to become a gardener and cut peoples grass because I would never earn anything.  In fact I would have to pay them!

IMG-20190421-WA0017 20190422_225536 “Phew, what a scorcher”.

My friend appeared with a drink which had a slice of lemon and a cherry floating in the glass. Remember I mentioned above, that I had a feeling of pride!  That disappeared quickly when I was told that not only had I cut the grass but butchered and destroyed plants hidden by winter grass growth which had not shown their heads this year.  Yes, I had messed up yet again!  Sadly, my friend is used to my normal standard of incompetence, so she wasn’t really surprised.  This led to her to take me round the garden, so I knew what I should not cut!  By the way I did get the drink even though I didn’t deserve it.

20190421_163439.jpg FB_IMG_1555868379373 “The tiny snail, refused to be photographed”.

After destroying the grass, I attempted to help doing various other jobs all the time hoping that I didn’t making things worse.  The day was not a total failure, I re-homed a tiny snail and caterpillar (they wanted it made very clear that they are not a couple).  Would this make me a contender for the “2019 David Attenborough/Chris Packham/David Bellamy conservation award for idiots who destroy flowers and plants (by accident) and still can’t identify common birds even though they spend hours watching TV shows about them”.  It was a hot sweaty, slightly uncomfortable day (factor 50 kept running onto my eyes) but I actually enjoyed it.  Not sure that my friend would agree!  I’ll surprise her by taking her to a garden centre to replace the plants I cruelly dispatched.

20190420_183702 20190421_114148 “Friends and food, whats not to like”.

And Finally……

Overheard the little girl next door say, “I wonder if the neighbor’s (my friend and I) are in the garden, I liked them!”  Sitting with my friend having breakfast using her new garden furniture, I whispered, “That’s very sweet”.  My friend reminded me that an hour earlier I had taken round Easter eggs for her and her brother.

20190424_183800 “I alway get a thrill crossing the level crossing”.

“While In Hasting on Good Friday”,

Bought a bag of four doughnuts, when I looked inside there were only three.  Don’t panic!  I went straight back to rescue the missing sugary ring of pleasure. “No Doughnut is left behind, on my watch”!

Sitting on a bench overlooking Hastings!  I became a little dizzy from the sweet smell of jazz fags drifting up from the town below.

Week 252, Saturday 13th until Friday 19th April 2019.

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

Week 252 Saturday 13th until Friday 19thApril 2019.

IMG_5830

Last Sunday towards the end of Ariel Yoga I didn’t feel very well.  I must quickly stress that this had nothing to do with the session itself.  After 70 mins this aged saggy excuse for a body, was still aged and saggy but more flexible than before the class.  Bending and stretching while being supported by the Ariel yoga sling really is a lovely feeling.  No, the reason I felt a little unwell was because of being strangled.

20190415_193904 20190415_193929 “Are the shirts more scary than the hands”.

Were all friends here aren’t we (ok, except you at the back giggling) and this is a safe place where I can be open and honest.  The culprit was my sports bra!  By the end of the session, the supportive piece of clothing was not actually supporting anything but compressing the top of my chest so much that it hurt.  It’s time to admit that it’s a little small and been like that for a while.  Because it’s uncomfortable i leaving it undone, which is why it rides up and I feel like I am being strangled.

20190414_154423 20190412_185758 “Roe Deer and Ducks in different parts of London”.

I used to go to a local leisure centre regularly (don’t laugh! I really did) to run and swim. These days all I do is sit on the tube (ALERT, ALERT! Damn, I mentioned the “T” word) moaning while watching episode after episode of TV shows or films.  A couple of years ago I tried to join a running club but that didn’t work out.  Even though I enjoy Ariel Yoga hugely, once every couple of weeks or a month is not enough to make a difference.

DSCF3583 DSCF3589 “Making and drinking with friends”.

If I went swimming after work I wouldn’t get home until late, which would make those days long because I get up early.  The phrase “No pain without gain” comes to mind when thinking about this.  The “pain” of swimming in the evening is I would feel better mentally and physically.  The “gain” is I wouldn’t have the time to stuff so much food into my cavernous gob as I do at present.  As well as there wouldn’t be as many hours in the day to veg out to episode after episode of (in other people’s opinions) crap.  Of course, I would always make time to playing with the Hamster for a short period before bed, there’s always enough time for her!  Hopefully the exercise would help me sleep better ready for another “wonderful day” in the call centre (I hope you read that in the sarcastic tone I meant).

20190414_155159.jpg “Ready to hang upside down in a sling”.

It’s time to admit that I need a bigger and better fitting sports bra.  Though because I’m not running anymore, and the yoga sessions are every few weeks maybe I could get away with using masking or gaffer tape instead (there’s not a lot to support after all).  Just think if I became ill while hanging upside in the yoga sling because I couldn’t breath and fell ending up with serious concussion resulting in a trip to A&E.  It would make a funny story, but I don’t think the already over worked staff of the NHS would be impressed.  I better buy a new sports bra, just in case.

20190417_185817.jpg 20190419_204151.jpg “Beautiful Sun and Moon.  Seen this week”.

And Now For Something Completely Different……

One story which is in the news sadly a lot in London and other parts of the UK these days is knife crime.  A couple of days ago I passed a child walking with two adults, noting unusual about that!  But the child who was possibly 10 years old had a knife.  Not the sharpest bread knife, but still a long metal pointy thing that could have hurt them or someone else.  Thinking back, I wonder if I should have said something or was it wiser to just keep quiet.

20190419_202731 20190419_172349 “On the hottest day of the year so far.  I saw lots of Ladybirds”.

It turned out that the child and adults were going to the same building as me which was a little worrying.  Let’s just say as soon as I was buzzed inside, I pulled the door closed behind me as quickly as possible.  Whatever the reason for the child and the knife, it was not something I expected to see.  Reports of knife crime do appear to be increasing more and more.  In fact, I personally worry more about this than terrorism when travelling around the capital.

DSCF3545 DSCF3548 “Even small steam trains are fun”.

This will be filed with another memorable memory from 1993 in South London.  A man was about to pass me on the pavement when he lifted up his top just enough to show that he had a gun stuffed down the front of his jeans.  On that occasion I picked up the pace, didn’t look back and arrived at the boring training session earlier than planned.

20190419_174111.jpg “Ouch!”.

And Finally……

20190419_180552 20190419_180547 “Excellent chips in Hastings”.

Overheard a woman talking to her colleague, they were working on the perfume counter in a large dept store.  The following was said in a very strong Essex accent, “Babe, you’re gorgeous.  Just Beautiful”.  It’s not funny, but it did make me think of “Miss Brahms” and “Mrs Slocombe” from “Are you being served”.

I’ll go away and find proper content next week!  I promise.
