I think I’ve blogged about this sort of thing before, but as I’m frustrated I’ll go again. I’m sitting in Starbucks in Glasgow irritated at stupid middle class people being rude. It’s a disease in Glasgow that I always forget – people with a little money thinking they are better than everyone. It’s something I’ve […]

Woke up early. I’m bored already !, nothing open, very little to do. I guess a day of DVDs and paperwork awaits. I guess tomorrow won’t be any better..

Well that’s the one decent shop in Cambridge (well okay, apart from the Apple Store) closing today. I’ll really miss: Magazines – easily the best magazine selection in the UK including US magazines (which contrary to popular belief aren’t just books full of ad’s). Opening times – sensible opening times targeting the ’50 quid bloke’, […]

Woke up this morning early and decided to head into London. I’ve been meaning to go shopping for some time (it feels so long since I’ve been in the west end). Of course this is a serious of error of judgement traveling on a day where there is bad weather (flurry of snow = bad […]

I love when it snows.

What I like especially is how uniform and clean everything looks (at least […]

Tomorrow bright and early, looking forward to it as I haven’t been for such a long time. Hopefully some good food and views..

Today was one of those days when things seemed to click. Well, it didn’t start well. Woke up at 6AM, reviewed yesterdays touch-up painting- yes it was a darker shade so I now had leopard spots in the walls- disaster. Had shower, went downstairs and noticed the roof was dripping. After I had a coffee […]

I’ve had a small wooden box of CDs in the house for about 10 years now. I hadn’t realised (until today) that I hadn’t imported them into iTunes. Well, what I have been missing – easily the largest set of 5* ratings in a group of CDs that I have. Actually, I need to spend […]

Is it: The weather (cold and raining), The culture shock (back to the UK) The fact that it’s so bloody difficult to get anything done here (1.5hrs on the ‘phone to BT) End of year tired (like usual) Jetlag / lack of sleep (which is the case) Or maybe all of the above ? I’m […]
