Heathrow terminal 5

All of a sudden I was working. From out of the blue I had to do a self tape. A self tape is me sitting in front of a screen, Jim’s phone on a tripod, and me identifying myself as an ageing actress with an ageing profile and wrinkled hands. Jim joined me on the … Read more

Oh! Suella don’t you cry for me.

Every human being has a right of reply. Every human being should be able to speak their truth and be listened to. Every human being should be given the basics of life; food, air, water and companionable relationships. Every human being that is except for Suella Braverman. I have read up on her. And by … Read more

Birthday Bashing

On August 23rd the old git was 80. It was a long time coming. One minute he was 34 with all his teeth, a mop of curly hair, a motorbike, acting jobs coming out of his ears, and a fancy car that you had to slip into. And then kaboosh it’s a second hand Golf, … Read more

Disgusted in Tunbridge Wells

To get to Forest Row – a Rudolph Steiner village where the organic veg grows on trees and the village hall hosts yoga, qi gong classes and theatrical performances, you have to drive down New Road then bare left over a cattle grid. The Duddleswell Tea Rooms have their chairs still stacked, waiting for summer … Read more

mid July

We drove the dawter to London. Today we received a fine for driving down her road. £65. I went shopping locally. I received a fine for £35. I contested it and got a very long letter telling me I was wasting my time. I told the old git to contest the £65 but he declined. … Read more
