He puts a spell on you baby

"Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good."

I write this blog because I find it mildly therapeutic to do so. Creativity (no, seriously!) helps me with my mental health and if I find that I want to chunter about something then I have a ready made forum. It does get read by a few people, although I don't know how any new readers ever find it. I take some pride in the fact that a constant presence on the list of google search terms which send people here is "beardy Branson is a twat", but beyond that I have no idea. However, someone new has clearly found it because they have left a comment on a post from last year. Rather splendidly the comment - which can be found here - is a testimonial for a witch doctor. Dr Agbazara, for it is he, specialises in bringing back ex-lovers via his powerful spell casting. Now, nothing would give me greater joy than to be reunited with the big, bouncy woman, but I confess that I am a sceptic. In truth, I have no confidence in either the powers or indeed the bona fides of the good doctor, despite his having, at least according to the anonymous reviewer, succeeded in coaxing back Jenny Williams. But, you are entitled to make up your own minds and so I won't be deleting the comment containing his contact details; the international dialling code quoted therein is for Nigeria, should that help you in forming your judgement. If you do avail yourself of his services then please let us know how things transpire.

Here's Nina Simone:
