Archive for the day “August 8, 2011”


The news here falls into two headings both equally depressing. The value of shares is plummeting for reasons that I dont understand. And there are riots breaking out all over UK. Mainly London area, like Brixton, Lewisham, Hackney and tottenham. Tonight Lavender hill in Clapham is being looted. Birmingham also. Reasons? Again no idea other than mindless psychopathic violence.
My contribution to Twitterland today was to inform that if you drive down the M3 and A33 to southampton, on the outskirts there is a Total garage, very exciting, but it does hot southern fried chicken burgers! And they do these with a bottle of Pepsi for 3£……….so in these times of financial paucity this is a fact to be relished.
My next book chapter on Prolactin is due out soon, not exactly JK Rowling, but better than nothing.
Hedgepig is fine and has stopped that silly chuffing and reverses far less. He lets us handle him and even feed him those lovely mealworms. Houdini now lives in his cage on top of Hedgepig. Like a high rise Animal apartment block.
Charles has had grief with his car. The clutch cable went on friday and we persuaded Gary to go over to Paley Street to fix it today. All done. One happy Charles……….
Elena has discovered the David Lloyd Gym. They have a kids exercise session and she came back muttering mutterances about cross-trainers, whatever they are……….but likes it. Bizarre.
Cannot wait to go to Spain in two weeks and our challenge is finding Hedgepig sitters while we are away, he may have to have a temporary holiday back at Paley street if thats permitted. And the lost tortoise has been found uneaten!
