Single earrings, birthday afternoon tea & a trip to Nottingham

What jewellery do you wear? If you’re an earring wearer, I’m going to guess you wear a matching pair most of the time but even if you don’t wear one in each ear, you would have bought them as a twosome.

The 4 days of Easter & my glittery shoes

I remember every year around this time I would ask my mother when ‘Easter Day’ was and when would I get my Easter eggs; it always confused me how you could possibly have 4 days of Easter.

BST jet lag & my welcome to the legendary Julie Felix

Suddenly the first quarter of 2019 has gone. Not just that, but it was a treble whammy on Sunday and Monday what with Mothering Sunday, the clocks going forward and 1 April. But at least I didn’t get caught out with any April fools jokes, but I did suffer from BST jet lag for most of the week.

Spring sunshine, Irene & my personal best

It was the Spring equinox which means the days are longer than the nights, it was also our latest programme launch party so we set things up with brie and cranberry on crackers and crisps…the Marine version of a cheese & wine evening.

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

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.

The Lyme Lunge, a long walk home & hopefully my car is fixed

It’s been a Bassett’s sort of week as we moved from one year to the next.

Uni-sex loos, pop-up tents & networking

What do you think of uni-sex loos? I’ve touched on this topic before, always with a pair of Marigolds on, personally I don’t like them. However, if the Pilot Boat had them, then there would have been no need for an apology to the town clerk. More about that later.

Hyperthermia, counting sheep and a non-rolling roller-ball eye de-puffer from M&S

You’ve been wondering haven’t you? Go on, you were just a little bit curious about this week’s embargo given the previous week was the huge announcement about Sir Ian McKellen coming to the Marine. Anyway, remember that hunch I had, the one about the weather?
