Birthdays, lunches, reading, making…but no tinsel

I am not doing it. Not yet. No sir. There will be no baubles, tinsel or elves on this blog this week. They might appear next week, but this week is strictly Christmas free.

Lego, Goldman and a Deep Deep Trench

Forgive me readers for I have been bad. I have not written this blog for some time and the only two excuses I can give are: The Gilmore Girls and work beginning in my garden. The former because I recently bought Netflix and have been glued to the Gilmore Girls, all seven series of it … Continue reading Lego, Goldman and a Deep Deep Trench

Barcelona!

Oh my God! What can I say about Barcelona that would do this city any justice?

Inconceivable! Fitbitting, Laundry and Finishing The Princess Bride

I have bought a Fitbit and have become totally obsessed with it. This is a good thing because it's making me more active and a bad thing because I've slightly fallen in love with it. Okay, I'm totally in love with it. I know I'm late coming to this gadget - folk have had them … Continue reading Inconceivable! Fitbitting, Laundry and Finishing The Princess Bride

Throwing Cartons of Orange Juice and Florence Foster Jenkins

Things have quietened down lately and thank goodness. For a while there, myself and the kids were dining out rather a lot, which is good for seeing friends and family, but not great for the pocket. However, while we’ve been going out less, the house has not been peaceful thanks to my kids fighting with … Continue reading Throwing Cartons of Orange Juice and Florence Foster Jenkins
