Pencils are less expensive than golf clubs

February 3, 2014

I popped over to Newcastle on the Metro today and, apart from changing my library books, bought some pencils (3B, 4B, 5B plus 2@2B, to be precise). It occurred to me that pencil sketching is a much less expensive retirement hobby than playing golf. I thought I would share this tumultuous thought with you.


Now, a quick update for my lovely music fans. My usual fortnightly gig at Acherusia has been cancelled by the venue manager for tonight (only). I hope to play there again in two week’s time, as usual. I shall be playing The Village CafĂ© tomorrow, Tuesday, (this is my weekly gig, there). My voice is still not back to 100% but the head cold is starting to go (although I have to say that it is taking its bloody time). I know I am feeling better because yesterday I cooked and ate a very nice vegetable stew with English dumplings. Speak to you later, my dear blogophiles.
