Now I am feeling really smug. A couple of weeks ago it was my portable washing machine that finally saw the light of day and now I find that another long term idea of mine is going to be introduced. I am not claiming any credit however but you never know… I saw this announcement … Continue reading Another idea surfaces
I’m hurtling everywhere at twenty nine miles an hour. It doesn’t matter where I go or how fast I seem to go, I end up averaging out at the top speed of a domestic cat. It’s the traffic that slows me down. It has become the bane of my life. It has become an unhealthy … Continue reading Unfolding plans 194 – Hurtling everywhere
A couple of days ago I was telling you about Lee and his stories. His tale of children and coasts tugged on a few strings. It brought back memories of childhood, happiness, helplessness and an innocence lost. It gets me every time I hear it (and I’ve heard it a few times now!). He has … Continue reading Unfolding plans 140 – be mindful of others

I might have been there for the football in the dark and distant past. This morning five of us made the … Continue reading A year of work in progress – day 217
Day 206 – 1 December 2014 I was never going to make it to Meadowfield by half past eight, even if I left early, which I did. Getting though the road works and down to Durham would have been hard enough but to get across the city was a step too far. I had four … Continue reading A year of work in progress – day 206
Day 196 – 13 November 2014 Philae is resting on Comet 67P. After a couple of bounces and some bitten nails it’s talking away happily to mission control in Germany. Apparently it has the equivalent weight of a butterfly on Earth. We can put a probe on a comet but we can’t sort the traffic … Continue reading A year of work in progress – day 196
