So we’ve got a trailer for the Sherlock Special …

And as I watched it, sniggering gently at That Hat and The Moustache, I realised that I am officially NOT BOTHERED about what happens in it, or where Mofftiss choose to take Series 4. More than that, I absolutely do not give a flying furball about any of the hype the BBC and Mofftiss are … Continue reading So we’ve got a trailer for the Sherlock Special …

Words from the Week, otherwise known as the one where I shout hurrah!

Yes, hurrah! Really quite loudly.This is because yesterday, after a rather long silence that I feared meant the worst, I found out that both requests I made back in December in respect of my job have been approved. I am therefore a proudly promoted person with a nice new job title and a respectable pay … Continue reading Words from the Week, otherwise known as the one where I shout hurrah!

Reporting for duty again.

Well I’m back, having had a holiday that was amazing, yet profoundly moving and will, I know, have a deep affect on me for many years to come. I realised last night that I’ve stood in the vicinity of almost 100,000 graves in the past week and, much like visualising otters on GERTIE, it really … Continue reading Reporting for duty again.

Today is UK Armed Forces Day

NaNoWriMo 2012 here I come …

although whether this is a good idea or not is anyone's guess. I've been toying with writing a full length Post-Reichenbach reunion fic since S203 aired and it's got to the point where I'm dreaming about it. A definite sign that I need to get it out of my head and onto paper. So I've started … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2012 here I come …

Sherlock Holmes – My favourite things – 2 of 100 – Fiction

I’ve spent quite a lot of … Continue reading Sherlock Holmes – My favourite things – 2 of 100 – Fiction

In which my Sherlock Holmes obsession gets its own little space

Honourary Londoner

That's the title I've just been awarded, along with a very nice glass of Pinot Grigio and I am feeling more than a little smug that I passed their test. However I'm not entirely sure the moaning that's coming from them is worth it! You see I have apparently broken them by taking them, on … Continue reading Honourary Londoner
