Creatures: Great and Small

Mr. Button.

Happy Monday to you,   So, how are you! I am fine, thank you!   Yesterday we were lucky that the rain stayed away and we managed to actually get into the garden and do some very necessary tidying up. My task was to pick up and bag the deep drifts of well crisped brown […]

Siku The Baby Polar Bear.

Hi, . So, we have something unbearably cute today  (and there is a pun in there somewhere). . On November 22nd 2011, a tiny bear was born in a Scandinavian Wildlife Park. Unfortunately, his mother was not able to feed him as she did not have good enough milk production. This has meant that the […]

Is This Actually The Monster- On Film!

Hey, . This is the week for my ‘Mysteries And Wonderments’ section. .

Although he is known […]

Synchronised Pleasures.

Hi, welcome to Sunday, . Unfortunately, I could not sleep again last night, so I ended up rising in the very early hours, in a very cold house. . After making myself a huge pot of Lapsang and a hot Warburton’s Potato Pancake, I snuggled up in the big chair and read an Alex Cross […]

Fun In Russia.

Hi, . It is unfeasibly cold here today in the far north. . I awoke early to below freezing temperatures, bright white ice covering everything, and a heavy haze of fog. It is like an advert for some fine place to go to for a skiing holiday. . Although I am not sporty myself, I […]
