10 Things…

Hi all! My first blog of the year! It’s nearly February, so I suppose I should be ashamed of myself. I’m a bad, bad bloghog, and I just don’t care!! 😀 I have been thinking about what to blog for aaaages, but as I work on a strictly only-blog-when-I-have-something-to-say basis – I got nothin’ as… Continue reading 10 Things…


The Fukkit List

I have noticed people talking about their ‘bucket lists’ a lot lately. While I can appreciate the concept, (and for terminally ill people I completely understand) the idea has never really appealed to me. I’m probably a very boring person, but extreme challenges and Swimming with Dolphins/Riding in Hot Air Balloons etc, just leaves me… Continue reading The Fukkit List

Home Alone and Lovin’ It

Yesterday my husband went off on a sailing trip to Croatia. He’ll be gone for a week. A blessed, chillaxing, no heavy cooking, no sock-hunting week!

Angry at sausages

I wasn’t going to write another blog so soon. Yesterday was my first, and I had intended to write another in about a week. Funny how Fate changes your whole day, without anybody’s permission, or even a note from it’s mother. As I attacked my Cumberland sausage rather forcefully at lunch today, my other half… Continue reading Angry at sausages
