The thundery rain has now passed over and we awoke this morning to a beautiful bright sunny day. Perfect for the men’s quarter-finals and the Murray match this afternoon. First thing this morning, my lovely sewing lady, Janet, came to measure up for making me another custom-made under sheet with a satin centre. I think […]

Being Tuesday it was meant to be a golf day for me, but the weather forecast was unclear and following the very hot weather there was high chance of some short heavy thundery showers. I really felt I could not risk it in my electric wheelchair. I think I will ask the wheelchair people’s permission […]

A pretty hectic day for a Monday. First thing, I had a real problem trying to publish my blog entry. I tried for around three hours and could not resolve the problem so called on the services of that ever willing Paul, who fortunately was working just across the road. It even took him about […]

As forecast today was a real heat wave. I went into the garden in my electric wheelchair wearing my shorts and even sat in the sun for half an hour without my shirt. I cannot overdo the sun these days as I find I have far less tolerance for it than I did when I […]

Another weekend and one that the weather forecast people had promised would be a heat wave. It is also the day of Gillian Cook’s memorial service at a Clavering village church. Unfortunately, I cannot go but Alice will be representing us while Paul -Jaynes lodger -the computer geek, baby sits me. (Apparently, Gillian had a […]

I spent most of the morning on the telephone to Nuance (the Dragon activation people, tweaking my computer in order to get the system to be more responsive to my commands). Then, in the afternoon, another hour and a half or so on the telephone to Microlink, to resolve for other small problem I had […]

The Inner Temple dining hall has always been my favourite, although I am still a student member of Lincolns Inn (I should think possibly the oldest). I used to enjoy lunching at the various Chambers as a member of one you were entitled to dine in any of the others. I remember taking my dear […]

the I think it’s about time I tackled another subject other than myself and the matter which is at the forefront of many people’s minds at the moment is our national debt and the state of our economy. As few, if any, countries of the world can isolate themselves from the global market. Even Australia […]

The following demonstrates the wonderful care that I receive under the NHS. Mid-morning, after the two carers and showered and dressed me, Ellen, our district nurse visited to check up on one or two small problems. Hard on her heels came Jenny Buckley, who works with Dr Margaret Saunders on the Rank Hospice in Cambridge. […]

It is one of those rare days in the golf calendar when Monday is Tuesday. As my regular readers will know Tuesday is geriatric-golf day – incidentally we have three new octogenarians. this year, making around seven who play regularly on Tuesdays-I suspect the average age of the Tuesday rollup is now over 70. Anyway […]
