Now then, now then......

Happy hew year, been back in the saddle for 4 days now, and fortunately this week seems to be a more brisk one!

Last week was painful, not many bodies on the streets, stretching out the festive holiday as far as possible..... the two notable moments being a lucky break on Wednesday that took me on a trip from the City to Hemel Hempstead, all 27miles on the clock..... very gratefully received....

The other being a famous person, those of you who were kids in the UK around late 70's early 80's will note the title of the blog, yes at Marylebone Station I picked up the one, the only..... Sir! Jimmy Saville......... For those of you not in the know, he hosted a prime time Sat eve TV show called "Jim'll Fix It" where kids could write in and ask to sing with their desired band/pop idol of the time or, in the case of some cub scouts, ride a rollercoaster eating their lunch - clip here....

He was pleasant enough, took him to Kings Cross via his flat near Regents Park to collect his mail..........

Hosted a birthday party for our 6 yr old, 14 kids 8 and under!! luckily we had it down to a strict 90mins of fun and frolics.......

Lastly a groan, why o bloody why are the UK media insistent on making an issue out a comment Prince Harry made during a "not for broadcast" comment to his army mates in 2006..... surely

a) it was said in jest
b) no one has complained
c) who cares
d) really, who cares!!

Peace off-ering's to all!
