Where there’s muck…

Changing Plans

With some regret I’ve just cancelled our honeymoon to Namibia. It’s been a tough decision for both of us but with my uncertain job future it’s the only sensible option. We have about half the money we need, with some…

Signing On

It’s been a funny ol’ start to my new unemployed status. The last time this happened, Tuesday 1 May 2007, was similarly bright, sunny, warm and distinctly spring-like, and it has been the same today. It takes the sting out…

A Countryside Drive

Tesco was hideous today. It’s my own fault. If I’d got my act together and got there early I would have been in and out, job done, in no time at all. But I didn’t, and I hadn’t. It was…

The Time Was When

09:43:08 has now secured the garden against leg deficient puss cats escaping into the wilds of next door… 🙂 21:28:36 @ianshepherd Nellie, she of only 2 3/4 legs, went missing for three days, but thankfully returned to us last night……

Speed or Cost … or Quality…

My days at work this week are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (or the days that Eddie doesn’t work). That said, I was technically ‘in work’ as in ‘in the building’ for some of today anyhow for I had an interview,…
