Transported back to my youth by knock of unexpected caller


10-hour wait in brave new world of emergency hospital

My chance to shine in the kitchen

Long-haul flight leaves me with an unwelcome memento

Sunday lunch injury joins long list of bizarre battle scars

Filling my time productively is proving to be hard work

Passing years have mellowed my view of long arm of the law

Playing with fire in the days before TV

Diciphering the wordy nature of New Year traditions

Nativity triumph stays in my memory after half a century

Ding dong merrily on high, at home my doorbell is ringing

Christmas frustrations get an early start at Hextol Towers

Magical glue helps me out of sticky DIY situations at home

Star-studded memories of life as a teenager back in the 60s

Sinking feeling as DIY date with bathroom cabin looms

Imagination runs wild as air freshener squirts its ‘venom’

Knee repair survives moving day attack from the Numskulls

Finding time to deal with scams

Rugby great is latest victim of my talent for mistaken identity

Conkering the criminal waste of nature’s wonderful harvest

Westward Ho! fails to live up to my grammatic expectations

Much-abused left knee finally buckles after slip in the mud
