So far the weekly photo challenge has been slow to appear. In it’s absence it has been suggested that I join in with the travel theme for this week, which is foliage. I’ve accepted the challenge, and here is the story behind the photograph We travel almost every day. We travel to work. We don’t… Read More Travel theme – Foliage
I’m going to cheat. I’m using the title of the Weekly Writing Challenge, but it isn’t quite the correct subject. I was going to take the bull by the horns, as it were, and give you my opinion, but the more I thought about it the more this story became the inspired subject, so I… Read More Mind the Gap

I chose the picture for a variety of reasons – the colour, the texture, the arrangement. I don’t… Read More That’s #100!
Do you remember the A Team? I haven’t seen it for years and haven’t given it a thought. Until this morning, that is, so I’d be obliged if you will quietly hum the signature tune while I tell you about my early morning exercise. Now, you didn’t know that I take early morning exercise, did… Read More Remembering the ‘A Team’
I have lost count of the number of times we have been informed of problems with exam results. They have either been the result of exams that are too easy, or too hard. This year some have apparently been marked incorrectly and there is a lot of fuss over whether or not the results should… Read More Does it matter if exam results are wrong?
