JUN  14 MON 

Went over to Nikki's today and we had a nice catch-up. We had corned beef rolls and tea for lunch. We also fixed the printer... again!

 JUN  7 MON 

Nik and I went out for the day. We ended up only as far as Reigate Village. Checked out the charity shops, had lunch in the Urban Kitchen, filled bagels and then went to see Jezz at work before trying out a new Ford Puma by sitting in it at the Ford dealership. She also bought me this fab massive mug... she knows I'm partial to a big one (and this one is black)... leave it!

 JUN  5 SAT 

Amanda came over for a few hours today. She bought me this lovely tea caddy.

 JUN  4 FRI 

I bought the ingredients yesterday and today, made Duchess Tomato & Onion Chutney, an old recipe of Dad's. I made 5 and a half jars. All done, tidied up and jars filled and labelled.

 MAY  28 FRI 

Finally - I bought the new 2021 iPad Pro 12.9". I've been saving frantically for almost two years and managed to find one after a 103-mile all-round trip.  

 MAY  13 THU 

Jezz and I went to Brighton for the first time since the pandemic. We had lunch in Kooks it could well be the best beefburger ever. Shopped around in the lanes and spent a bit in the shops at St. James's Street.

 MAY  10 MON 

Jezz and I spent a few hours with Nik at hers, keeping her company as she recovers from her operation. We had lunch, fresh rolls and corned beef and tea and cake.

12 November 1924 - 12 April 2008 "The biggest loss in my life that is, and always will be... my dear father. He continues to live on inside of me: with his laughter in my mind and his love in my heart. Broken and lost, I spend the never-ending task of picking up the pieces... and re-living some of my most cherished memories that have Dad in them." ~ Wayne


A page dedicated to those who have been near and dear to me and that have passed on. 


This page has links to almost all of the mini-videos that I have created over the years. Some are humorous, some nostalgic or feature a partocular event and some are in memory of a loved one.


A controversial page dedicated to men with a certain attraction as they go about their day. As well as my own contributions, many photos that appear are submitted by fans of the page.


This page is all about the cars that I have either had the privilege to drive or ones that I have owned or co-owned. Some of the photos are of the actual car but of the ones where I didn't take a photo at the time: I have had some fun trying to find one that best matches the car.


Here's a page of photos created from using an iPhone app that started a trend of photo editing in comic strip style, just for a laff.

RECOMMENDALTONS has its own recommendations page: if there's a business you're after, then have a look to see if we used the same line of work from someone... if they were fab, they'll be on this page!



We would like to remind our infrequent visitors of the "Previous Quotes" page. Some folk have contributed to over the years without even knowing it! The Previous Quotes page is all about wacky, hysterical, inappropriate and even beautiful statements that have been said by mostly those near and dear.
