The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.


It is packed with trivia about the Napoleonic War, His Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeen, the history of Tidworth Military Hospital and about modern day nursing and emergency first aid as well as the battlefield medical care during the Battle of Waterloo.

How To Stop Sinks From Blocking


Pour about 50mls of the bicarbonate of soda down the kitchen or bathroom sink or the bath plug hole. Now add 50mls of the white vinegar. The solution will fizz up. It is harmless and great fun to watch, children will love to see both the chemicals interact. Don't add any water or turn on the taps for at least 30 minutes. After this time any remaining solution can be dissolved by turning on the taps.

Doing this every few weeks should help to keep the pipes and drains clear, unclog any debris, remove unpleasant odours and flush your drains.

Do try not to allow hair or grease to go down the sink or bathplug. Grease from cooking can be poured into a tub once it has cooled and collected over time. Once it is full and set the tub can be removed and the set grease and lard will make a lovely treat for wild birds on the bird table. Alternatively hot grease or lard can be poured onto a piece of bread and given to the birds once cooled.
