It was a dark and stormy night

Phew! Check out the cobwebs!

Don't think this post will be of any interst to anyone but myself. Really need to renovate this blog. Tried to post on my childhood idol, namely Mrs Fanny Craddock. The biopic on her has come and gone, and I gave up trying to encapsulate the evasions and revisions of her life, she employed to create the austerity era tornado of pretension and suburban luxe that entranced postwar housewifes with vicarious high living, before everythign when beige and hessian in the 70's with Delia Smith.

No news. Apparently people hate recieving Christams cards with picture of the sender's dogs, so that photosession has been cancelled. Occasiononally bump into Madame Ex, buty have managed to escape blow by blow reports of his romance with the heterosexual Mike Skinner-alike neighbour, whose 8th kid must be due anytime now.

Checked out the vacant Battersea Power station, with it's great wall of rotting apples, and a lot of crap Chinese art, only to have it reported yesterday that it's been sold for £400 million yesterday to some irish plutocrats.

Getting so bored with myself, I've even taken to ringing up LBC 97.3.

Is everyone now at MYSPACE? I wonder. I shouldn't really blog, as I have never settled down to the one house subject . Probably delete all this, but at least it's broken the blogging ice.

My Space is so dull. Apart from ripping MP3s from artists' home pages it's nowhere near as entertaining as the blogs.

I still visit you each week in the hope you've updated. I bowed out of my own two due to illness, but I'm much better now. Not sure I want to go back to it now however.

I have telephoned radio stations for many a year pretending to be vacuous house-bound freaks of varying sorts. Trouble is, I no longer think it's a fantasy. It's slowly dawning on me that I'm turning into my grandmother.

Loved the Julia Davis and Mark Gattis take on Fanny and Johnny Craddock. BBC Four does show some gems. Loved the supporting actors too. Those kitchen hands were hilarious.

Don't delete yourself now.
