Strangers on a train...
Posted on 19 Apr 2004
A funny thing happened on the train to work this morning...

I bumped into Chris and Tony, who were teachers at my secondary school. They are still both at the school, and were catching the first train up to Catterick, Yorkshire to do a quick reccy for the school Combined Cadet Force. This is the home of the Queen's Royal Lancers, so it looks like the pupils are going to have a fun week.

It was very strange to enter the world of my old school again, if only for an hour. The school seems to have acquired and built new buildings, the pavilion has been burnt to the ground, and my old headmaster has only recently passed away.

So much, but so little has changed in the 13 years since I left...

Transported back to 1978
Posted on 21 Jan 2004
Amazing, I was transported back to being a six year old again, sat at our kitchen table, with coin in one hand and letraset in the other.

Which reminded me to look for the Doctor Who cutout figures

They just don't make cereal freebies like they used too, sigh.

Scope creep at the dentists
Posted on 27 Jun 2003
Well after three days of tooth ache, I finally submit myself to the local dentist. Unfortunately although I have incredible shooting pain all down my right side, I'm unable to pinpoint the precise tooth that is causing all the trouble. A heated discussion ensues where we weigh up the facts of what we can see, with what the X-ray shows. I decide that, as we cannot tell which tooth is the culprit, she should do both just to be sure, but at a whopping 43 a filling I'm thinking it might be better to just eat my dinner through a straw...
