Shoreham Airshow 2007
Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 20th March 2013


Any of you who visit my Website regularly will know that I am a romantic sentimentalist.

I recently had a major upheaval trying to sort out my crowded study and can actually see the carpet for the first time in years (have moved the piles of paper). I also brought in a chair which had its home in the bathroom for the last ten years. Why do I hang on to it – because it was my ‘nursing chair’ when Jonathan was a baby – how daft can you get – it doesn’t even go with anything. I've also kept matinée jackets, shawls, bootees etc though what I'm going to do with them heaven alone knows.

Anyway, I thought it would be nice to have a relatively comfortable chair in which to sit if I were reading some research notes etc. It hasn’t been sat on for years. Well when I did plonk myself down, my posterior nearly hit the floor – the webbing on one side must have given way after 31 years. So would I get it repaired (not really worth it) or get rid of it. The decision has been made for me by my Cat, Tamby. He has decided that the saggy bit makes a wonderful place in which to curl up and sleep – so I think I’ll have to keep it just as it is but must remember not to sit on it myself.

I think you can see that it is decidedly squishy and forms a nice little nest for Tamby
