The downside of making progress

Posted October 13, 2018 and visited 26 times, 8 so far today

Just a quick one today. I’m sitting in a cafe, drinking an enormous bucket of hot chocolate while I while away an hour before McMini’s harvest service. Very important I go to this one as Scion has a speaking part! Woot. There will also be a Hymn I Know, apparently, so I must make sure I am in a position to sing loudly without causing […]

Jumbled thoughts on metal detecting, dementia and happiness.

Yep, that’s a hell of a mixture and it isn’t as philosophical as it sounds, this one. As you know, I go metal detecting, or to put it the correct way, I’m a detectorist. After a very, very long break, I got to go detecting the other day and I found … THINGS. The ground has been too hard and the crops […]

Do The Quiz … Yeh!

If you decide to do the quiz, many thanks, if quizzes aren’t  your thing that’s fine, it’s not obligatory!

Uh oh. I think the chaos fairies are back …

Blimey, it’s been all go this week. Last night McCat caught sight of another cat in the garden and went nuts, I was alerted by the sound of a plant being knocked from a windowsill. Things went downhill from there, with McCat moving to the cat flap. He smashed it two weeks ago trying to get at this […]

And on the up side …

Good news about Dad and one of his favourite jokes.

How a battery charger saved my bacon …

…And the danger of over confidence when coupled with good intentions. This week, I was going to talk a little more about happiness being a state of mind, but I only have a few minutes to do this in so it’s more of a dump it and leg it! It’s been a busy week with a bank holiday at the beginning, a weekend away […]

Gumbification is the name of the game: the capriciousness of science, things and me.

Yes, I have been on holiday! Woot. Apologies for my absence last week. Though on holiday I was writing and meant to sort out a blog post while the others were skiing but I got too into what I was doing and dismally failed to leave enough time. Which reminds me the final score for that week’s writing was 7,570. […]

Sleigh that again?

On sledging/tobogganing.

What do you see when you look at me?

You see a bad mother. Church, if you want to do it, can be a bit of a conundrum with small people. McMini being a bit older now and more susceptible to boredom, it is not so easy to persuade him to come to the Sunday service. Furthermore, when he does, it’s probably no longer appropriate for a young gentleman […]

(Brandy)Butter balls; a bit of Christmas wittering.

It occurred to me that I should be doing a Christmas round up soon or at least a what’s on next year. However, I have spectacularly failed to get my shit together in time for it this week — ooooo there’s a surprise — so instead I’m going to give you a recipe … eventually. As you know, I am the original […]
