‘This rubbish!’

‘I have played every major Shakespearean role in the theatre and I’m considered the finest speaker of verse in the country, and I end up becoming famous doing this rubbish.’

This was said by a British actor who was in a long running BBC series in the late 1960’s. Any ideas?

Irony ? I’ll give you irony…..

I have slept very little for the last three nights but today after lunch I fell into a pleasant doze…… only to be woken by my phone bleeping.

It was a text message to remind me of next week’s appointment with my ‘sleep medicine consultant’!!!

What time is it !?!?

Unable to sleep, I crept quietly to my desk – wrote 1500 words (an article not just a random list! then I Wordled and Nerdled, took Lesley a cup of tea, had breakfast and did the washing up …… and it’s still dark!

So anyone else woken by helicopters over South Manchester around 3am today

A ‘mumpsimus’ (16th century) is someone who insists that they are right, despite clear evidence that they are not.

How ridiculous my life has become!

I’m currently very sensitive to the cold – I’m fed up with this constantly changing weather. As a consequence, before leaving the house this morning I said to Lesley ’Is it cold?’ She casually asked the Portal for the temperature in Cheadle but it was clearly also feeling the cold and refused to reply. I picked up my phone and checked the weather in Cheadle. Why didn’t I just walk out the front door?! In fact, the temperature the phone gave me is of no real use as ‘feeling cold’ is essentially subjective. Tragic.
