So I was just in the kitchen cooking one of my speciality snacks (you will notice I didn’t say ‘meals’), when I started wondering about cheese-graters.
If someone could please invent a cheese-grater that didn’t remove the skin from my fingertips, I’d buy it.
We were show-jumping this evening, a session with Owen.Â At one stage Owen said, ‘What are you feeding Tom, Bren?’
Rocket fuel, obv.
Tom showed no sign that he had been out on Saturday (you’ve read the result, already, yes?) as he towed me all over the show-jumping course.
I honestly expected him to be a little laid back.
I was back in control for our second lap and after the third, faultless journey over the course, we called it a day.
Owen had a good time at Broadway this weekend; 2nd, 7th and 8th, but even these results must be no consolation for his Badminton disappointment, one of his four-star horses being unwell, whilst the other didn’t make it off the wait list.
Meanwhile, in other news…
I’m at home tomorrow, but on Wednesday I’m off up to Worcester. It’s a work thing, not a pleasure thing. I have decided to be radical and let the train take the strain; Charlbury to Worcester Foregate Street and return. I’ve got a four-minute walk from the station in Worcester.
I had a really bad night’s sleep last night; less than two hours, and then I was up for five hours, then back to sleep for three more.
It’s safe to describe my state right now as ‘knackered’.
I’m going to use tomorrow to have a burst of activity on ‘Shelved’. I have done no work on the Sitcom for a couple of weeks, but I have done a massive amount of thinking about it.
The bottom line is that I want to rethink the first and last episodes. I think there is a way to make a visual gag in episode one, dovetail in to the last episode of season one, in such a way that the comedy ending of the season becomes lastingly bitter-sweet.
And the headline above?
Well, can you imagine having sex with Jan Moir?
