89: Back to Blighty

Posted by michaeljk on September 4, 2007

Back to Blighty. I return to England with mixed emotions.

For one, there are still siblings to meet in other countries; interesting characters, that for now, may not feature in my documentary.

On the other hand, I’ll be able to nip into Waitrose for my favourite Potato salad.

88: The Windmills of her Mind

Posted by The Joneses on September 3, 2007

I’m not sure whose side to take on this argument. Neither I suppose.

A documentary film maker should always remain objective.

Maybe the windmill will have a calming influence.

87: We drove all night

Posted by michaeljk on September 2, 2007

Cherry Ledojo, the man in the windmill and a late night dash to Holland – this is exciting.

Although I didn’t get any dinner and I don’t think those wiener’s and Pelvus sauce agree with me.

84a: Sourcing Wim

Posted by michaeljk on August 30, 2007

If Ian hadn’t have bought those trousers where would we be?

A kind twist of fate – yes, but I’m not sitting next to him in the car if those trousers retain their charge.

Lovely driver

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 18, 2007

Long car journeys can play merry havoc with your skin. My handy hints are to limit the use of air conditioning, drink lots of water and smear tapas on your face – avoiding brie/anything fish based (I learnt that the hard way). Drive safe now.

Love & Light,

Dawn x

Time of my life

Posted by Dawn Jones on August 8, 2007

Having a great time

I’m having the time of life in Rome. I’m so exciting someone should make a film of me. I’m like the opening credits of a Melanie Griffiths film circa 85.

love & light,

61: Lost in the Colosseum

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 7, 2007

Dawn thinks she’s being followed. I said “Hello, what do you think I’ve been doing here all this time”.

Not funny apparently.

57: Fonzi Duplo

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 3, 2007

Italy really is Jonti Bloom’s spiritual home:

– The best cars
– The best food
– The best clothes
– The best women
– The best football

And it’s acceptable for you to live with your mum past the age of 30.

56B: Magpie

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 2, 2007

Always a sensitive film-maker and seeker of truth, I feel that I may be touching sensitive areas. And paying for quite a lot.

52: Safe as Houses

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 29, 2007

Can someone remind me what happened to the documentary film maker at the end of
Natural Born Killers?

48: Siesta

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 25, 2007

Apparently the pop that I bought for Ian was a ‘bit loud’. I’ll try and buy him quieter pop in future.

We Name to Please

Posted by Ian Jones on July 24, 2007

snowy

Snowy is a good name for a car, and she did very well driving back to France.

It seemed a bit weird to name a car after a woman who died in a road accident, but it all seems fine.

I resisted buying more Apple Temptation. I’ve got a bit sick of it. I’m back on the Cacolac.

Clouded Judgement

Posted by Ian Jones on July 16, 2007

fluffy clouds

Dawn reckons elves could live in clouds.

I pointed out that Tolkien’s elves – the Quendi – are as heavy as the sons
of men, so they – or the plant-like Aldryami of Glorantha – would fall
through unless they had some pretty hefty magic. Maybe summon a sylph.

Or an Umbroli. Even then, basic subsistence would be problematic.

She stopped the car and said I was despoiling my business training.

Looking the part

Business Lunch

As a successful business woman, I need the right tools. Here are my glasses and espresso.

I’m far too busy to drink/wear either.

Love & Light,

Dawn x
