Having a bit of a clear-out today, trying to regain control over the loft. Control was lost while moving: “Oh, just bung that upstairs.” As a result the loft is completely full, everything in it is inaccessible and possibly there are mice living in there, nesting in my shredded comics collection. Clearly urgent action is needed.

I do not want to trivialise the vandalism of the Easter Island statues, which is completely wrong and unacceptable. However, I am still irresistibly reminded of Bethselamin, that planet in Douglas Adams’ Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy the fabulously beautiful planet where the activities of billions of tourists each year were causing an erosion crisis.
Great story on the BBC News site today about passengers stranded on the London Eye for… wait for it… a whole hour on Easter Monday. During which they were reportedly ordered to crack open emergency fluid, blankets and portable toilets. Declare a national emergency!
