Long days, allergies & the Ides of March

It’s been late nights and early mornings for me along with a full-on day in between. The trouble with those kind of weeks is that time literally flies by

Cheveux naturelle au frizz, Kate Winslet & a 125th anniversary

There really is never a dull day in Lyme Regis and the Marine Theatre office has the best view anyone could wish for.

The World Wide Web, a broken down mobility scooter & fishnet stockings

Can you remember the world without the internet? It never ceases to shock me just how much we rely on it, both for work and socially. For instance this week I heard from someone out of the blue whom I worked with over 20 years ago and she summarised her life in 4 very short paragraphs

Half term, Kate Winslet & fishermen from across Europe

It was half term last week. There are two camps in Lyme, one of them says “half term is great, the roads are so quiet without all the school run lot” and the other “there’s no parking, hundreds of dogs and children wandering about and I had to queue in Costa, what a nightmare”

It’s not just love that’s in the air

It’s been a week of all things love…along with more meetings and nights out, oh and not forgetting the drugs bust with the armed police.

Meetings, meetings and more meetings

Meetings galore this past week. There was a suggestion a while back that we should have one day a week when there are no meetings, we put a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door and rope in one of the volunteers to be our gate-keeper to steer the random visitors elsewhere.

No-show snow & flying solo

I well remember 8 March 2018, I was the last one to leave the theatre not long after the snowfall started. It was the day I ended up abandoning my car and trudging home knee deep in the white stuff.

National Hug day, Blue Monday & the Lyme Siege

What I want to know is, who decides what day should be dedicated to what event and who made hugging a thing anyway? I didn’t hug anyone on Monday when it was National Hug Day but then I’m not convinced the suggestion to hug a stranger is actually legal in this day and age

Lists, instructions & dirty boys

As you know, I’m one for lists. I have master lists, interim lists, sub-divided lists and occasional ad hoc lists. I also have copious notes in a variety of notebooks, scraps of paper and always various hand written aide memoire

Christmas trees, the cat and mice & our wedding licence

The first full working week of the year and for many it was their first day back to work after a long Christmas/New Year break. With a combination of illness and holiday, I had the office to myself for much of the week so a good opportunity to sort stuff out that needed some extra desk space.
