For the last couple of years I have been trying to devise ways of clearing my silted creek out that would not break the bank and about three weeks ago I thought of a way. I'll get round to doing that I thought... and put it off whilst I got all involved with the Best of British Variety Tour and some television work.
Looking at my schedule I realised that today would be THE DAY for doing it. I would travel home from Bournemouth after the show at the Pavilion and attack the creek early this morning. A goodly plan but I had put it off just too long. I came home in the night to find the winds had brought down large branches and partly blocked my drive way.
The morning dawned bright and sunny and I went out to clear the branches before doing the creek. I needed my dinghy to work in the creek and I couldn't find it. The wind had rammed it, and I do mean RAMMED it, up into the bank at the top end of the creek and I can't shift it.
Leverage, I thought, and went for a long lever..... the heavens opened and I gave up. I now have a dinghy full of rain water... and I am not prepared to get wet.
What else? Well, the shows are going very well; Dana is delightful and the other acts all make me, and the audiences, laugh a lot, so all is good.
I see RG9 has left me a note about being on radio on Saturday morning. I wonder what that is about? Sometimes you record a radio show or TV show and by the time it is transmitted you have no memory of doing it at all.
I wrote to my MP this morning about credit cards. The media has been full of how much we are all in debt so I have suggested, once again, that by law they have to be called debt cards so that every time a seller asks us if we want it on our debt we might stop and think about it.
Time for a cup of tea.
