I’m really enjoying the recent revival of the Doctor Who series. David Tenant was, IMO, the best Doctor by a country mile, and several of his episodes instantly stood out as classics. Admittedly I only came on board with the fourth Doctor (Tom Baker, who is my second fave). One of the things that stood […]

Just come across an interesting website – Upshot is you get healthy nibbles (fruit, nuts, seeds, etc) delivered to your desk. It looks fantastic! I’ve been provided with a “first box free” voucher, so I’m giving it a whirl – looking forward to Friday.

Every New Year I try and do a little blog post about the year that’s past, and sometimes look forward to the one to come. This year has been interesting precisely because it has been almost entirely boring! No (family) births, deaths, or marriages (although Penguin’s wedding almost counts). No job or career changes.
