The British coalition has been on my mind again today. Not because I'm in a particularly political mood either. In fact, my approach has been very frivolous. As I saw them walking together towards the dais (what's the plural of dais, please? There were two of them!) Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum came to mind. Both David and Nick are the same height; they were both wearing matching 'business' suits and ties; they're both of an age. And, from a distance they really looked like twins. Terrible Twins? Only time will tell.
But these frivolous thoughts were mot my only ponderings today. We had a run-through of my Australian melodrama at the Cricketers' Arms today. We were a small band but enthusiastic. Pam Boyd and I have decided to co-direct! (See the connection!) She wants to concentrate on the Aussie touches ..... the slang, etc. And I want to direct just because I want to direct! So we're in double harness and I think both of us are wondering how it's going to work! I visualised the play when I was writing it, but she has the stronger personality and more original ideas.

I once worked in double-harness as the co-President of a social club, and I resigned after only a short time because I found the situation intolerable after a while. So watch this space!


  1. Thanks for your comment! The plural of dais is daises.
    At the moment I have five Aussies staying with me. My daughter, who is Australian now, arrived last week Wednesday with her partner and the three children! I enjoy every minute of it. I hadn't seen them for two years.

  2. Thanks for visiting my new blog! Some things can't be said in rhyme! Enjoy your lovely family reunion!

  3. I was amused, and agree, with your assessment of Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. I don't follow news much, and hadn't seen the photo you included. They do resemble each other!

    Thanks for the visit!
