Jeez, well, this week’s been interesting. Welcome to what the lovely Dame Edna Everage would call, ‘my gorgeous life’ in all it’s technicolour glory! (Phnark.) So, this week McMini had pukka actual gastroenteritis. He started feeling ill, was sick a lot, and then he was sick a bit more and then, just for a change […]

This week, I am mostly ranting about … everything! Mwah hahahargh!

Aroogah! Aroogah! Let’s kick off with a profanity warning: there will be some. There. So if you don’t like the F word, do not read this. Especially do NOT read this all the way though and then complain it’s full of swearing or I will flipping well lamp you. And if you’re a bit iffy […]

Well, that’s everything done for another year despite a small level of assistance from the chaos fairies. Presents given, card sent … well, OK, they’re sitting in the post box still I expect but I put them in there before Christmas day, on Christmas Eve to be precise, so it’s done. I even managed to […]

A day out, in which I am covered in seagull shit and have to buy shorts.

Careful with that axe Eugine! Drama at the garage: how MTM learns there are two sides to every argument.

Thoughts about how different people conclude different things from the same information. And a graphic account of MTM making a complete arse of herself! 😉

It’s a long time since I wrote anything on my blog. There is a reason. It’s because Real Life has been quite hectic. Worse, it’s been hectic in a way that has meant that I need to write to stay sane. That’s where I’ve been. Writing, and driving 130 miles to Sussex in the middle […]

Marathon Man and Team GB: A Personal Appeal from Me.

Posted April 18, 2015 and visited 2843 times, 3 so far today

As you know, I don’t normally talk about my family, mainly because I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to know about them and that they, in turn, would be absolutely horrified if I did. However, today, I’m going to make an exception. This is a personal post, about my brother, and at the end of […]

Still Eating Snail and Tortoise Dust but Learning to Like the Taste

It has occurred to me that it’s time to post something before you all think I’ve shuffled off this mortal coil or something. The truth is, life is just busy. Duncan’s funeral, a week blitzed afterwards, half term and my in laws down for the week next week, along with the deadline for the parish […]

It seems I am #KBarthan. Even though I live here.

I thought I’d share my morning with you. No real reason. Just for a laugh. It was McMini’s first day back at school so we had to be up and out of the house at about the time we woke up yesterday. McMini, however, was ace. He got up and got dressed. “Car or bike?” […]

Christmas. The traditional time of unfulfilled expectations and almost unfailingly the death of a friend or relative. I have to admit that the best bit about Christmas, for me, is the day we get back from whoever we’ve been staying with that year, and I can relax in the knowledge that it’s all over for […]
