Tales Of A Ten Pound Pom!

One of my master’s more intelligent friends advised him he should try writing in the third person singular when next he decided to compose his blog. Of course, being blonde, well, almost, he didn’t quite understand what was being suggested to him.  I say ‘almost’, only because I am party to all of my owner’s folicular secrets, and have been made to accompany him to his local Poodle-Parlour, on more than one occasion, often being enforced to wait, impatiently lap-bound, whilst witnessing his tousled coat being painted various shades of caramel!

We’ve Gone All ‘Arty Farty’ ! (or ‘You Can Always Get A Bad Apple!)

Well, after our shows at the week-end, Andrew and I were looking forward to resting a little and getting some of those long overdue jobs completed – you know, the little things you neglect until they can’t possibly go unnoticed any longer.  Like nasal hair removal, shaving one’s intimate places and, of course, clearing out the kitchen cupboards. Sadly none of these petty chores have been possible so far. Instead,  Andrew is busy painting in his studio – like a manic Matisse, preparing for an art show at which he is exhibiting […]

A Jump Start In A Roundabout Way.

Our ‘Lola Boys’ gig on Friday just gone was only our second since we had decided to entertain the good folk of Borneo in an old defunct gold mining settlement. On that evening it was all rather ‘Dodge City’ – and the act – just plain dodgy! Still, we secured a few free drinks and I was presented with a branch of cherry blossom by the handsome owner of the establishment, Dylan. I was terribly flattered and felt almost like Maria Callas until Andrew happily informed me my bouquet was […]

Stranded On The Strand Via The Old Kent Road.

    A wonderful party party for a wonderful lady has brought The Lola Boys’ over to England. After all we do need to work occasionally – Tina Turner wigs aren’t cheap – that’s just the act! It is always a pleasure to return to the old country. The home of Shakespeare, Churchill, Lord Nelson and, of course Katie Price! Nothing much seems to alter.  We still have the marvellously crowded public transport, the charming climate and, of course, the not so cheap fags – obviously I don’t mean the […]

Rainy Days And Thursdays ….

Ironically,  the rain in Spain  has not mostly stayed on the famous plain since our return from the rainforest! Here on the Costa Del Sol when it rains, it does just that –  and only that – for days at a time. Sometimes the interminable downpours seem bearable only because one knows for sure the surging heat is bound to return – like a wasp to it’s nest – and in the midst of the formidable midsummer, when the sting of this season burns most apparent – these watery April […]

Carry On Blogging !

Originally posted on THE LOLA BOYS ABROAD !:
I intended to stop blogging it up when I signed off on ‘The Lola Boys Out East’.  At  the end of our recent Oriental adventure I was clear it was time to hang up the lap-top – the story had come to a natural conclusion.   However, I have since changed my mind – or should I say, had it changed for me.

I intended to stop blogging it up when I signed off on ‘The Lola Boys Out East’.  At  the end of our recent Oriental adventure I was clear it was time to hang up the lap-top – the story had come to a natural conclusion.   However, I have since changed my mind – or should I say, had it changed for me.
