Peter! Peter! Peter!


 This amused me , because I can see myself walking around like this tonight, letting off excess energy
My colleagues and I all feel like this tonight, so we treated ourselves to a Chinese takeaway to have on our breaks. 
It’s funny that something so ordinary re lockdown has become a real luxury and something to be enjoyed and savoured post lockdown.
I finish my run of four nights on Sunday morning
The quiet part of the night I have a book to read, a recent gift from Waterstones 
surviving Tenko The True Story Of Margot Turner by Penny Starns.
It’s the story of a nurse Arrested by the dreaded Kempeitai during the fall of Singapore during world war 2      

Good news to end today too, my friend has been found safe....

  7. I had relations who were prisoners in Germany, but luckily none who were prisoners of the Japanese. The Japs really were the most evil people. Folk are always (rightly) ready to talk of the German concentration camps, but rarely talk of the Japanese atrocities.

    Good to hear that your friend is safe; did you discover where he'd been?

    I'm elated your friend was found safe and appreciate your letting us know. The news was a ray of light in this troubled world.

    It's good to hear you and your coworkers treated yourselves to yummy food as one excellent way to pass a long night at work.

    Just Saturday night to go as I imagine since it's just past midnight here, you're probably on your way home. Drive safely. It's a long way to go when you've been up all night.

    Hugs!

  12. Glad your friend has been found safe, who a relief for everyone, good news. Sadly one of my relations was captured in Singapore during WW2 and after time in Changi, died on the Burma Railway. I'm sure the book will be an interesting read.

  14. So very pleased that your friend has been found safe. Joining late so just read that your shift was really busy, it makes the night go faster. I had some good news myself yesterday on the health front so him indoors and I treated ourselves to a Thai takeaway to celebrate. Usually I cook from scratch every night so this was a first for us; for a long time.

  21. I had the huge honour of removing some stitches from the hand of said great lady when I was a very junior officer in the QARANC - how I managed it I have no idea as I was s******g myself. She was very gracious and said that I had "done a very good job"! Wow! So relieved your friend has been found.

  22. I find taking a book always means you won't get to read it, but leave it at home and you'll be sitting round.

    Glad to hear your friend is safe.

  23. Your book reminds me of a funny story involving a friend of mine. His wife went away back to Edinburgh leaving him home alone for a few days to amuse himself.

    His friend lent him a porno tape (when they were tapes) and he settled down one night to watch it. It began promisingly with a load of dirty, sweaty women sitting around in a hut, arguing. This went on for some time until some adverts popped up. His friend had over- recorded an episode of Tenko, deleting the porn.

  30. That sounds like an interesting read. Chinese food is always fun! One of my favorite take-out, next to burgers!!

  31. I wonder if that book, Tenko, was the basis for the 1980s BBC series of the same name. I couldn't watch it again, grueling, but excellent.

  32. Enjoy your book. Is that Charles Pierce? I am not up on my drag history... but that is my guess. Interesting timing and a gas to see. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy!
