The art of the HURKLE DURKLE

Today I am epitomising Hurkle-Durkle. A Scottish word meaning ‘lounging around in bed when you should be up and about doing other things.’ We Brits are bereft of a Hurkle-Durkle of our very own. You’d think a man like Shakespeare would have rustled up a word to do the job but he was clearly too … Continue reading The art of the HURKLE DURKLE

The best picture I have probably ever taken

I think we can all agree that 2016 was a terrible, TERRIBLE year that can't end soon enough. However, Christmas has arrived in the blink of an eye and this year I was entirely unprepared for it. It just sort of turned up like an uninvited house guest demanding special treatment and attention. I am feeling incredibly … Continue reading Christmas 2016
