    Hi Mike - behind Southwark cathedral is a house with a plaque - and an inscription/or I read it in a book ... ...’Wren’s house during construction of S P cathedral...’ and that Wren was ‘rowed to work’ each morning :).

    Isn't it one of those places that deserves a second blink? We lived in Pevensey for a while - that was similar/like Dungeness

    Yes, I like your writes when you go exploring, Mike, they're very satisfying. More please. Would you write about the South Bank, Southwark even - that stretch up toward Wren's house? I do like Shoreham-on Sea. I surfed there a bit when I was a ...

    I think so. I think my young girl voice is a competition favourite. And probably one for the Pushcart people as you probably suggest without quite saying so. Thank you. Yours deserves a second viewing, I will be back.

    Ah, the mind of a child is so mercurial and captured quite well in your comp entry, Mat.

    I think ‘white as snow’ for that one. I will read if you like, Wey? But maybe a section at a time. Whole novel is overwhelming for me, up to you :)

    Mat wrote a new blog: "First Website in Wales".
    FICTION   I believe the first website in Wales was the Swansea Surf Noticeboard.  Back in the days of Solitaire and Minesweeper – the late 1990s when I was confined to a Dickensian cubicle in a haunted palace – in a professional ...

    It was in your other blogs - the theatre of the absurd. Before I read your blog, I had walked to my local supermarket which, for me, is a country path bordering a golf course. A woman was before me; bent down attending to her pooch which was ...

    Yes, I'll talk to you Mike. No-one's talking to me today. The other 'Beach Chief Executive' lady - she said I was so good I might get the opportunity to walk up down Scarborough beach during Armed Forces Day. I'd rather f**king swim, anyway, ...

    Well - I made friends with the deckchair attendant. He's very overweight, a big lad - talks about how he'd like to cycle and swim and paddle in the sea. He makes me sad. Actually, I talked to all of them on Tuesday - the ice-cream ladies, the ...

    I liked YOUR one, D.

    I'd quite like another go - and write more of a Star Wars peow peow, peow peow epic. A great theme really - Dystopia sets me off every time.

    Thanks for that, my darling! I often wondered how it happened. I salute your utter magnificence, illustrious commander of the prose skies! Emperor of the subtle put-down, king of all you survey! I bow down before you, mighty Mat-ery, hoping one day you may deign to trample my excuse for a brain under your golden jackboot! All hail, Prince of Princes, Writer & Earth Mover of the other sort.

    Finally...found the Wall...yes NBA...look in the 'comments section' - to find my story - scrolling past the comments of my 'single reader' - the blogger's curse, always I have one reader, and she wants my address to send me a Xmas present. If I say no I'll have NO readers..
