Well hello there me ole Chums More today about my allotment – well at least about the land in England – and a little peek into history Well, in ye bad old days those nasty Romans came and though they seem to be famous for their arches and straight roads I think they are more likely to be remembered for their naughty deeds, including stealing land from the people on a massive scale. They also built a wall to keep people out. Not very nice people I think you’ll agree. Then after those marauding Saxons and Vikings came William the Conk (Conqueror) who invaded old England and poked Harold in the eye and gave all the land away to his barons. Then Richard the third lost the battle of Bosworth and banged his head on the bridge over the river. His head was very sore so they named the river

Nogg Blogg – Allotment Fun

Well hello me ole chums. Back again having spent a little teeny -weeny bit of my day up on the ole allotment. A fierce-some day though for my personal development and hopefully yours too as you read this confession. For confession it surely is.

Chopping and swishing and pulling and tumbling and digging and scratching I was having the time of my life I can tell you. But within minutes of good-naturedly attacking these formidable opponents and tossing them onto a rather wonderful bonfire that we had made, what do I hear emanating from across the ridge but a chain saw and strimmer in violent ear-splitting action. As you are aware from my last allotment missive the

Well hello there me ole chums I feel I’ve redressed the balance of power somewhat this week in favour of the working classes of which I feel myself to be a highly esteemed member. So, what did I do? I can almost hear you wondering Well I’ll tell you me ole chums I got an allotment. That’s what I did. Now for those of you who are not familiar with the term I’ll explain; It’s quite a large plot of land that you can rent for the princely sum of £25.00 per year. You can’t build a house on it but mine’s got two and a half sheds and a rather fetching blue water butt and a most delightful array of plum and cherry trees. It’s all a bit overgrown of course cos folks don’t seem to want allotments anymore and they get left and spiral into decline. But that’s

NOGBLOG March 1st 2019

Well Hello me ole’ chums Just dreaming the morning away in a little taverna in Kouklia on the balmy little Isle of Cyprus somewhere out in the lovely old Mediterranean. I’ve just gobbled my way through a halloumi and tomato pitta bread and a magical little slice of the hostess’ magnificent orange cake and sluiced it all down with a couple of cups of strong black coffee. Heaven! Well now I’m having to edit my new story – Noggin [that’s me] in Cyberspace. Well me ole’ chums I’m glad I got outa there I can tell you. You’ll have to read it to see how but it was touch and go for a while an it’s not the sort of place you want to get stuck. Anyway check it out.
