Red nose day – weight watchers – standup etc

1-DSC08407‘I’ve been weak with a ‘fall down virus’ for days  1-DSC08428 So I won’t be sporting the two fluffy red bobbles on my head in aqua aerobics this morning.

The tutor was keen to sell us all a set on an alice band last week, so that everyone could be part of the fun.  I didn’t like to dampen her enthusiasm and point out that they were cheap imports and it would be best to check the dye, the pool could look like a battle scene  by coffee time.

Last week the more intense members had complained about others talking during the class and there is a notice telling everyone to refrain…I missed that furor but it all smacked of Enid Blyton and Malory Towers (lots of arguments in the dorm).  Well I’m an oldie we didn’t have Harry Potter!

With Red Nose Day on my mind, I thought of adding  my Weight Watchers lines to my stand up comedy on youtube. I had after all one claim to fame because I had appeared in New Acts Night at the Komedia.  Sadly my new career had been short lived due to old age and exhaustion!

1-DSC08431 Wow is that the time?

Film 6 minutes I think! And taken in a pub in Hanover when my hair was a mess and I could barely scramble up between wires and paraphernalia!


Must get up !  Half an hour before –  Drama writing the Century 21 – Journal of Joskin 1938: Remarkable Events. Writing is beginning to take a bigger role in Fred’s life.

This story on Radio 4 is totally brilliant, not funny but so tender and truthful – been on for 15 minutes a day all week  – find it on iplayer.

This is all  beside the point, but my friend Karen up north, loves a bit of ‘blather’!

Now to pop pounds in tins around the city. Save the world in our very own red nose way!
