The early bird catches a cold.

Well it’s almost 4am and I am sitting at my computer writing a blog entry.

Of late I have become a bit nocturnal, sleeping through parts of the day and up during the night.

Of late I don’t seem to be able to have a steady sleep pattern, I am suffering with leg ulcers at the moment which is not helping either. But I must admit that I do find typing away through the night quite relaxing for some strange reason. But the noise from hitting the keyboard keys seems louder at night, then again perhaps it’s just my imagination?

Having said that most of what I produce is still a load of rubbish as far as I am concerned but at least I am more relaxed when I produce it.

I have communicated with a number of writers who write through the night, so perhaps for some it helps creativity, who knows?

Time for a coffee I think, to warm the inner man as they say, who they is I have no idea I must say, perhaps I should waste some time on Google and YouTube seeing what I can turn up. No doubt I will find piles of stuff, weather or not it’s of any use or interest is another matter, much like this blog I suppose.


The inside outside Toilet

Now I can see I have already got you confused. I mean how can you have an inside outside toilet? Well let me explain.

Are you sitting comfortably, and not necessarily on a toilet? You are then I will begin.

On our landing at home as well as the bedroom doors we have a door to a bathroom and one to a toilet. Now a force of habit we don’t shut the windows in the toilet or bathroom, and unless in use or recovering from an urgent visit we often leave the doors ajar.

However the toilet can get rather cold in the winter, but the wife has drawn the line at a centrally heated bog seat. Though it must be said that in really cold weather we have been known to smear vaseline on our rear ends so they don’t stick to the loo seat if we sit for any length of time.

For some strange reason the wind does like to blow through the toilet window, and it seems that the colder it is the more it blows. If a visit is needed in the middle of a winters night it can seem that we are trekking out the back door and down to the privy at the bottom of the yard. Quick calls are needed so we don’t have bits suffering from exposure.

So if any of you wise people know why the wind blows more in through the toilet window then we would love to know. Answers in pencil on the back of a used ten pound note please.

Two weeks in.

Well here we are two weeks into the new year, and to be honest it feels just like it did last year.

For the last two weeks most of the weather has been nothing to write home about, and at least on the mild days the rain has been warm.

I am still enjoying my break from the railway, nice to stay in the warm on cold days when we would normally have been at the station.

But good news, we may have a new project with the railway, they have put forward a few ideas which I am looking at and mulling over at the moment.

Watch this space as they say!
