I love my TomTom Go 740. Really, I do. I buy all the extra live services and map updates for it, I use it every morning on the way to work to route me around the nightmare car park that the M4 in South Wales can be. I use it when I drive to London […]

So I forgot I hadn’t posted this. Oops. We left Todi and had a mammoth drive through Italy, Switzerland and France. It was slated to be 10 hours of driving, but things didn’t go to plan. Leaving Todi, we hit Italian rush hour which was a bit interesting and I had to concentrate hard to […]

I’ve made it home. Just. I drove up to Aberystwyth tonight to take Sean back for his lecture tomorrow. I checked the MetOffice reports, but after a bit of a snow shower around 1700 this afternoon, the only thing reported was “icy roads” – not normally a problem anywhere other than my street, so off […]

Just a quick update – yesterday was a bit chaotic but I did manage to get work done and play in the snow though it’s becoming more and more apparent that the road up to my house is bad for weather. I only just managed to make it in today thanks to some judicious gritting […]

So, with Traffic Wales showing A465 Highest Point becoming treacherous and those people who live in Merthyr heading home from the office, I’m fairly amused since we’ve got a “light dusting” here. [Update] It’s started snowing properly here now. Dan is heading out to “rescue” a friend of his who’s stuck in Penderyn with his […]

With the news reporting the end of the world being nigh due to what actually amounts to not very much snow, I woke up to a light dusting covering the neighbourhood this morning. Nothing spectacular although it’s loose snow – it’s blowing around in drifts which is irritating. I took the long way around instead […]

On Saturday I went shopping and had a wonderful day in Cardiff. Yes, I went shopping on the busiest day of the year and enjoyed it. How do I manage to do this every year? T’Interweb, of course. Every year I plan my shopping ahead of time and buy as much online as possible and […]

It’s been a long weekend and mostly without Internet. I was up in Aberystwyth all weekend spending time with Sean. It was a nice weekend, even though we spent all of Saturday working on Sean’s latest production. Last weeks’ interview with South Wales Police went well – I hadn’t heard anything by the time I […]

Some of you (well, quite a few of you probably) will be aware that I’ve applied to South Wales Police to be a Special Constable. I’ve managed to get to interview stage and by the end of next week I hope I’ll know whether I’ve got to the next stage. I’ve had a few people […]

This week I have been studiously not working. That, however, is fine, because I was not at work, I was in fact doing something that has been recommended to me, something I’ve heard is quite fun – this thing called a hol-i-day. Figuring that time was running out for Sean and I to have a […]
