The first thing I am saving up for.


They've got Eras and Slip Ons too but the Chukkas are putting everything else on hiatus for me. The aim is to last without new trainers until I own these.

Pigeon Lights are amazing. Spotted them in a furniture shop but the colours weren't what I wanted so I'm waiting on a Grey with Orange Flex for my hallway.

Tony Hart 1925-2009

The man invented Morph. This man is childhood art. It is scary how all the men who brought art to me are dying.

Tony Hart had one of those attitudes that children's television no longer has, see Oliver Postgate too for this. What now seems popular isn't men talking to the children as if they're going to get interesting conversation, it is men and women trying to sound like all they really want to do is shit on the child or punch them in the eye. These people aren't charismatic any more.

Perhaps It's just me, it was all so brilliant and now it's all turned to shit. I remember watching smart only for Morph. I could leave Kirsten and Josie, Mark Speight less so (the man was brilliant) and watch some Morph. I miss Mark also.

I live alone and never check my voicemail, so I naturally have begun to fear my death. if I died and hadn't charged up my phone nobody would know, and I'd have a fuckload of voicemails that when I was eventually rescued, presumably by a burglar, somebody would have to deal with. To counter this I currently don't have a curtain on my ground floor bedroom window and if I prepare a note apologising/explaining the circumstances of my death (keeping it vague) to have on my bedside table it's puts my mind at ease.

The Radio

I love Radio 4.
