Since the weekend I have developed, mused on and now created this site registered at lidoffthebox.net. it was prompted by a WIX template. It's funny how a template forces me to create into that space. The canvas for the artist, a guide, structure, discipline.

Suddenly I am free to write short stories in blog format.


So just for fun right now and to try things out, to get into the flow of making the content and practice, if you will, I start Banana Skin Moments.


I was at these. I was in a show called DANCING ON ICE as a Judge for ITV so I was famous to a certain group of folk who watched the show - 12 million every weekend in its hay day.

I loved the show business and so many of the people involved in it and I hated being a Judge. It was so... (well it's a story in itself with my background - Banana Skins on Ice will give a big c
