My old pal Alex the Clydesdale horse has gone off to be a police horse, which is quite exciting for him, if not for the police person appointed to try and keep him in a straight line. He was patrolling the hordes at Ibrox recently, I hear, I hope it works out for him. I […]
I didn’t know it was about vampires, or I might not have went. Vampires and supernatural type things are so very far from being my bag. Gore I can handle, but anything that involves ghosts, spooks and other intangibly creepy beings are just not for me. My brain can’t turn off and also can’t help […]
I’ve spent much of today trying to find a suitable coat for Max. The first part of the day was spent going to buy one. Inevitably, the second part of the day was spent taking it back because it didn’t fit. I fear this will be an eternal struggle. Still, even with a too-small coat […]
Don’t worry, it’s not another post about my future funeral. But I did say goodbye to an old friend the other day. I finally sold my first car, Jesus. I even left Jesus in there, he sat above the ignition in medallion form. I’m on my own in my new wheels. Without wishing to sound […]
Image courtesy of Williams Funerals. When I was joking yesterday about running out of topics to blog about, I didn’t think I’d arrive so quickly at the very last topic you’d think of, death. But death has been on my mind lately, not in a morbid or depressed or even a sad way, […]
I was a girl guide when I was younger. I started off in the Brownies, old-skool with the brown tunic and the bobble hat and our meetings were in the TV room of my primary school. I don’t remember a great deal about Brownies, but I do remember moving on to the Guides when I […]
Phew, that was an epic last post, eh? Here’s some links to stuff that I’ve enjoyed reading, to take your mind off it. Kim’s posts on running an indie business are proving to not only be bang on the money, but popular with other people looking for guidance and support. Her Working For Yourself series […]
Well, I wrote my Evaluation post in April last year – I really didn’t think it was that long ago! So how have I done? So much has changed since then. The most obvious changes are that I have moved out of the city to the countryside outside a small town in the sticks. I […]
This is Max. He came to live with us 2 weeks ago. He’s adorable.
Every once and a while, you find or buy something that you not only want but you need. You use it every day and love it and then eventually you kind of forget about it and put it in a cupboard and every so often, you’ll rediscover it and so the cycle of adoration begins […]
Umm, I’m moving house. Rather sudden, no? All good. We’ve no internets but I have tons to blog about. Next week.
I do like Day In The Life. I like to read about the minutiae of people’s lives and compare them to my own. I think this time, I would most like to be Alice. It’s always nice to see new people taking part and old faces who haven’t done it in a while picking it back […]
I can’t stand it. I can’t bear to look at Gene Wilder’s freaky face. And the remake is no better. James Ward summed it up rather neatly though – I am in wholehearted concurrence. Read this for further explanation.
I think I mentioned recently that I collect tins, mostly vintage, but some modern ones. I am not sure if anyone knows that, really. It was certainly news to Lee, who thought I just liked putting things in boxes! Here’s a few of my recent acquisitions. The top one is French, I think and has […]
Some time off from everything this weekend – perfect.
