Our First Marine Critter

Meet ‘MR WHIPPY’ an Electric Blue Legged Hermit Crab or ‘Calcinus Elegans’ if you want the proper name. Mr Whippy, named after his current ice-cream whip shaped shell was introduced to the tank this afternoon. No sooner [...]

Christmas Day

Wil made the tea – there was quite a bit of debate involved. In the end I picked my book up from the nightstand and began reading knowing full well that my patience would outweigh his. As expected he lasted about three minutes before throwing the covers back and jumping out of bed to go [...]

Waiting For The Big Fat Guy In The Red Suit

We’ve had a lovely productive week. One day we spent the whole day in the garden having a pre-winter clear up. There weren’t enough hours in the day to get all the jobs done but we made the front of the house look lovely and tidy. Swept the leaves into a big ton bag which [...]

Christmas

This week held Cam’s school Christmas play. In politically correct style since we don’t want to piss off all the rest of the religions the school did their own production of Christmas Across The World, this way they managed to shoe horn in a snippet of the traditional nativity scene. In the big scheme of [...]

A Pain In The Arse

I went running on Sunday – 5 miles xc training with the club. The course is via fields and woodland in the grounds of a stately home and although it is largely flat there are small technical sections that you descend into (read, ‘nearly skid on your arse into) and then nearly have to pull [...]

Cameron’s Opinion

Yesterday morning Cameron handed me some letters from his school bag. One of them was a permission slip to sign if Cameron wished to go to the French Film Afternoon they regularly hold at the school. Knowing the response I’d get from the boy, I still asked if he wanted to go and his reply [...]

Sex And The City

I don’t watch TV much. I say that, what I really mean is that I’m not one to walk into a room and just turn it on to stare at or have yabbering in the background. I turn the TV on when I know there is something I want to watch and on rare occasions [...]

Catching Up

So my view stats went from 130 page views in one day (because of Penguins?!) to nearly dropping off the bottom of the scale and I don’t blame you. Where the hell have I been eh? Just crossed the finish line I’ll take you back to Sunday 30th November when Wil and I completed our [...]
