Blow the trumpet

Sadly, you find me in a situation this morning where my mood is such that I would rather blow a trumpet in someone’s face. I don’t think I’ll ever understand why in the process of trying to achieve something some people choose to behave in a way that amounts to pouring fuel over the fires …

Year of the Bus

I was mystified to discover 2014 is the year of the (London) bus. I wasn’t actually sure why this was the “Year of the Bus”, but a host of TFL and bus company websites informed me that 2014 has been chosen as “Year of the Bus” because there are several important bus anniversaries this year: …
