Well, they describe it as Blue Tea and so what was I to expect? In fact, someone has just spotted it through the window and come in to make enquiries!

Ironic Courtesy Water on such a wet, wet day. Thanks to the muddy men out in the road trying to fix the leak.
Luckily there’s no New Year’s party planned here tonight.

A very happy Christmas to all - and many thanks for so many “likes” and much laughter!

Clearing out my old stage makeup box today and ... Oh, it seems as if I don’t need THIS any more!

Mischievous #santaclaus @thewallednursery this afternoon. No #children in tears - only a few #parents who saw their #christmasshopping bill rise by an #ipad, an #ps4 or so.

The Strain on the Ego relative to Superstardom:

So, I march into an Asda.
– I am not recognised.
I potter across to the Christmas jumper rack.
– I am not recognised (despite posing for a selfie).
I take off my jacket and try THE Christmas jumper on.
– I am not recognised.
I ask an Asda employee to take a photo of me to send to my wife to see whether she thinks I should buy one. A member of the public does the honours. "Yes, it looks very nice on you," they all agree. The XL fits well.
– I am not recognised.
I buy the jumper and leave.

So, my 88-year-old dad grazes himself and the hunt for antiseptic cream begins. This is what we find. “What’s the matter?” he says. “It’s still Savlon, isn’t it?”
Well, yes, it was... 27 years ago.
