Savvy Comedy – Lamarsh

No mango cider? This has to be a mistake. Why am I not at my local, The Brewery Tap, glugging down one of my five a day? What’s lured me out of my comfort zone? Who’s lured me out? PJ, why Lamarsh? I’m rather partial to The Tap! Ah, now I see it! Louie Green!…

Savvy Comedy – Beyton Bear

Disclaimer: Please note that all content is tongue-in-cheek, and prone to hyperbole! It’s the start of the week, or rather, the end of the start of the week – it being Monday evening, and I’m due to hang out with the usual comedy crew at The Bear in Beyton. Unfortunately, no thanks to Sprog 2,…

Savvy Comedy – Three Years Sillier

Can’t believe its been three years since our founder, PJ, launched the best comedy club in Suffolk. Even Louis Green, today’s emcee, is still to make the three-year milestone! Louis, bless his silly socks, was only birthed into PJ’s world two years ago. Fabulous – I’ve now given myself earworms! The song ‘Once, twice, three…

Savvy Diary 39: Borley Mill

Disclaimer: This post contains image links for books available at Amazon, for which I do not receive any commission. It’s Sunday. I’m on the move along Northern Road and I have to say that my dainty ballerina’s arthritic feet look rather sweet when intermingled with so many pink flowers. And just take a look at…

51: Saucy Sunday

Fed up with tidying up everyone else’s mess, I thought I’d experiment, i.e. abandon the kitchen for a day, in the hope that Hubby might get busy in there. Hubby did get busy in there. After a long Sunday-morning lie-in, I decide to face reality and venture into the kitchen. This is what it looks…

50: Croissants in Cornard

Saturday. A definite picnic day. Only five more days left of the day job. Time to prepare for the wind down! I turf out all the junk mail that’s been accumulating in my stylish picnic basket and fill it to the brim with delights. Lots of healthy fruit – a water melon, bananas, tomatoes, etc….

38: Assington

Saturday. Time to get out and to be out. Today’s destination? No, I’m not driving to work on a Saturday – forget that! But, every workday, I drive up the A14 towards Colchester and, out of the corner of my right eye, see a church steeple beckoning to me from on high. Come on! it…

Laughter on Tap: Menstruation

It’s that time of the month again! And, no I’m not talking about my menstrual flow. I’m a middle-aged woman – give me a well-deserved break! It’s that time – first Wednesday of the month! Brewery Tap time! Time for a laugh with another of many hilarious Suffolk Punch Comedy Club gigs. I say, it’s…

23: Dancer

Read you (i.e. I read the post Read me? by the author of ‘Waking Up on the Wrong Side of 50′)! Read all the first half, then skimmed the rest, as the thought of some tulips I spotted on the school run is luring me outside. Sitting here on my laptop watching the sunshine fading away is…
