Alistair Appleton – the House Doctor‘s sidekick and official piece of TV totty here at Bitful towers – has a blog. It is not half bad, focuses on his travelling and is punctuated by plenty of pictures.

Unsurprisingly, I was only a little put off by his narrations of buddhist awakening, which I disrespectfully skimmed through. The more I progress in life, the louder I tut-tut (but at the same time secretly envy) other people’s spiritual development. It must come with being a reformed altar boy. But each to their own I guess.

Either that, or I am turning into a grumpy old man.
