Just what the world needs … another vain narcissist masquerading as a helpful cultural correspondent. So profound apologies in advance. But I have found myself through illness (now recovered) joining the ranks of the semi retired (or part time working depending on your perspective). Since I am neither equipped through nature or nurture to be a useful parent to my teenage/young adult children and my wife has no interest (rightly) in traipsing round London with me I find myself sampling the delights of said city largely by myself. This is a way of recording my adventures and justifying my indulgence to myself. Sorry once again especially as I am not a natural when it comes to managing something as simple as a blog site.
