I’ve just been binge watching quite a few YouTube posts from a new favourite, Jessica Kellgren-Fozard. If you haven’t seen any, off you trot, shoo, see you in a bit. Jessica posts about her experiences as a disabled [and very glamorous] gay woman, her marriage to the equally lovely Claudia, vintage style, royal history- oh … Continue reading An Ex-Men Origins Story
2018 packed and left, and we’re already nearly two weeks into 2019! I haven’t done any summing up, or ‘best of’ posts, so I spent some time this afternoon looking at statistics and browsing rapidly through this year’s posts to see what’s what. Ready? Part 1, numbers and fails 90 posts [fewer than the two … Continue reading Summation part 1
Not Tina Turner [grrrr-owl] but Steampunk of course. Lincoln’s Weekend at the Asylum, 2018. This is a long post, I’ve pinched lots of pictures from Facebook because we NEVER see all the best stuff!

Not surprisingly, June and July are a bit sparse with all the exam marking taking up my free time, and August was chock-full because I did the CoBloWriMo challenge and posted every … Continue reading Annual Round Up-2017
Warning- long post, lots of pics! For 9 years, hordes of steam punks from all over the world have descended on Lincoln and much silliness hath ensued. We started steam punking just under 2 years ago, and have now attended 2 Asylum weekends. It’s amazing! Literally thousands of people [not all steam punks, some muggles … Continue reading Asylum 2017
I’ve already frothed about the V&A in an earlier post, so in the interest of local pride, I will name Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. When I was a kid, there was very little to do at the weekends or in the holidays, and we had no cash to travel very far afield. Apart from … Continue reading CoBloWriMo #28-Museum
