Sky+

Forwards, backwards, pause and re-run
The box in the corner stays still, as
The pictures flicker
The programmes jump
Whizzing through the adverts
Series linking the good parts
Keeping what you need
Deleting what you don't 
Sky+ it to memory
or not
There is a choice

Fire Escape

 
Safety net, escape route, don't get burned
There is a way out when things get too hot
You will hear your alarm first
Walk slowly
Walk calmly
Follow the sign
 To the right, keep right
You will be all right
You might smoulder, but you will not burn
Always check
Always know
Where your fire escape is

Sticks and stones

The joys of living on the coast are endless. And one of the things I enjoy the most is collecting sea-glass and interesting stones. 

Here are two pictures from my collection and you can see a few more pictures here.

I originally created the sea-glass stars as Christmas tree ornaments - there's a picture of them here all lit up and sparkling.  Now, they're hanging in our conservatory, catching the sunlight and looking magical.

Always judge a book by its soft cover

I've been writing Coronation Street weekly updates for th'internet since 1995.

That's a long time.

In order to get a good grip of what's going on in the telly programme, I make a few notes as I watch each episode. Just scribbles, a few lines, nothing too heavy, some funny dialogue maybe.  And it's all written down in my weekly update book.  It's just a notebook from a shop but it has to be the right kind of notebook and it's always a pleasure to choose a new one when my current one runs out.

For me, the right kind of notebook is this:
- unruled pages
- heavyweight paper
- soft and colourful cover
- tactile

And I found my new one yesterday, it's perfect.
