On The Road Again

Daughter No. 2 needs to be taken from her current place of safety to her new University town, so tomorrow and Wednesday I will be on the road and out of blogland. Tomorrow to the far side of England, a meal with the ex and new partner, and hopefully a bed for the night. Wednesday, load the car and transfer the fruit of my loins to a City in the South, settle her in, feed her copiously (she's been living with Mum for a year, but she'll be hungry) and tootle home late-ish. I love being with DN2 as she makes me laugh a lot, and she's a lovely girl too, so this will be no penance at all.

Back soon. Or, as Christopher Robin wrote:


Trivia item: my Dad served in the Middle East during the Second World War, and towards the end of the war he met one Lt-Col C. R. Milne (the rank is from memory, could be wrong). All the soldiers called him Christopher Robin behind his back, but he said he hated it, and preferred to be called Billy. Dad only met him for a short time, but got the impression of a rather short-tempered and impatient man. As a child, I found that incredibly disappointing.


  1. I am not surprised CR was a little bitter and twisted. Can you image school once 'they' found out you were Christopher Robin? And the army!

    I can see why Zowie Bowie now likes to be known as Duncan Jones.

  2. Yes, agreed. It must have been tough. Not 'Boy Named Sue' tough, but close. I didn't know that about ZB, but it makes sense. Now, what about Dweezil and Moon Unit Zappa?
