Of sore thumb and grazed forehead

21st January 2018

 

I like to start the blog with a few pithy phrases that give an air of detached insightfulness. Unfortunately I can't think of any.

Of anti-biotics and bus bars

14th January 2018

I decided to give Mr Strawbridge's antics a miss tonight. As a friend commented, he'd watched it last week but with gritted teeth. I knew exactly what he meant and I have no wish to return prematurely to my dentist.

Of Scanner and Santa


24th December 2017

OK, so how many of you are going to sneak off during Christmas Day to read this blog, I wonder?

Of air bags, buffers and beams

17th December 2017

I'm looking forward to getting back to 'loco work' next year, but for the moment it has been more effort at getting things organised to achieve it.

Of pumps and bolts


3rd December 2017

December eh? Steph has stuck a calender under my nose and pointed out how few working days there are before Christmas, and how much Andrew and I keep trying to squeeze in.

Of pins, cones and urns

26th November 2017

They said last week's was a little disappointing - wha'd'they want? Blud?

Of various personages


12th November 2017

I looked over at the Darley hillside while shunting this afternoon. The trees were an attractive mix of greens and browns in the wintery sunshine, but the wind was chilling. Back at the Briddon Country Pile the central heating pump has died and the plumbers reckon a replacement is 2-3 days. Brrr.

Of vac and van


5th November 2017

It's actually Monday as I get this loaded, sorry if you've been waiting up Sunday night – hope it's worth the delay!

Of studs and LEDs


29th October 2017

The 'hit count' on this blog has been well up for the last couple of weeks – I gather it has had plugs on NatPres and something called Facebook (I'm not one for social media, but then a decade ago I'd never have thought of doing a weekly blog) so firstly a welcome to all new readers and I hope you'll hang around. It can get lonely here on my own.

Of battles and wars

22nd October 2017

It has been busy this week for most of the wrong reasons.
