An Excellent Few Days.

Hey, Hey,   I hope that you are feeling fine in the aftermath of a fabulous weekend …. ‘cos I am.   At the moment I am feeling very spoiled because Big H and I have had yet another family visit, and that makes it twice in one month! Total Spoiling!   The weekend was […]

A Sad Thursday.

Hi There, . What a sad day it was for us yesterday. One of our friends died last week from , after a short illness, and it was finally in the morning. It’s weird how it somehow seems irretrievably real at that point, even though it has been an actual fact for some days before. […]

A Metrosexual Cat.

Hello Peeps, . What a fine day this is. Today, my painters, who have been working here for nearly a month, will be completely FINISHED! . Yeaaaaaaah!! . No more of that scary Nitromors stuff, no more dust from sanding down the stripped wood, no more eye watering paint smells, and no more living in […]

Oi, I Know Who Your Mum Is!

Good morning to you, . I fear that I am being very contrary once more. . I t is now 3am on Saturday morning and this will be the first morning of the week when I do not have to be up before workmen arrive, so, theoretically, it is the night that I could have […]

Singing To Cows.

Hello, Hello, . Ah, the surprises of each day. Today we are back with the low grey skies and the heavy rain. . I braved it, in order to dash outside and feed the somewhat tattered looking birds, cowering in the tree and around the chimneys. . It is amazing how guilty you can feel […]

The Milky Bar Kid.

Hello, hello, hello, . I know what you are thinking. Why do I say that three times, when just once, would do fine. What am I adding to the greeting by saying it that way. It is just overkill…and general showing off. . Well, words are free, and I am feeling generous! So come on, […]

Who Was That Man.

Hi people, . This is a very late post today. Usually I write them in the of the morning, when I feel like the last person left standing.  A  regular ‘War of the worlds’ or ‘I am legion’ type of feeling. But not today. I did not wake until after eight and it has been […]

Taking Ioan Gruffudd’s name in vain.

Hi, Well, today is a landmark day for me. I shall enjoy it to the full. . You may remember that in a  about three months age, I told you that  Big H had started doing work in the living room, along with his assortment of various tools, ladders and accompanying pieces of detritus. Well, […]

Queen Elizabeth II.

Hello Peeps, . I was going to tell you yet another tale of , but this morning, for some reason, I keep thinking of my mum. I possibly told you that she died earlier this year. . The death of a parent is extremely painful at first, but I think perhaps I have been lucky. […]
