The Golem

19Nov13

It was the hum that kept Leah awake. The relentless hum that touched her ears just below audible that could only be heard if you listened for it; or if you were trying to sleep. She had been told by the captain before he went into stasis that she would get used to it. And […]

Last week’s Love Our Lurker’s was a huge success. All credit to Bonnie and of course you. Here is a list of participating blogs. Another blog worth another mention is Wholebean and I by Paolo. He laments Irish narrow mindedness, but there is a lot more to read here. Blossom and Thorn had the back […]

We are almost halfway through November already and Christmas is looming fast. Where does it all go? Any minute now, well in a few days anyway, this blog will have seen its eight millionth visit.

An old grainy picture from just after the First World War and a bit of 60s fun.


Part 1 here. Tammy, Charlotte Coleman and Anne Shelley were all around the kitchen table when Hilary walked in. The red-haired senior, Charlotte, shifted awkwardly in her seat, visibly wincing. Hilary remembered that Charlotte had had a tutorial that day and she knew damn well the girl had not finished her paper. The well-groomed Anne […]
