Progress in Motion

      No Comments on Progress in Motion

There are lots of resurfacing works being done in the village right now, necessitating road closures. This was one of the signs I passed on the school run; the guy in the car behind said sign gave me a very unimpressed look. Sorry mate, there was something new and shiny to catch my eye, and I have a thing for… Read more »

Quick as a Flash

In the realm of quick dinners, Z decided that taco boats were the winner. And they were! We blasted through the meat as well… as one could expect with an extra person eating it, ha ha. I ended up doing most of the cooking for once, if only so Z could work the dishes at the same time. I was… Read more »

The Happiest Fattytum

This is a picture from the other day that I had forgotten I’d taken of our cat, Poison. Of our two, she’s the one that tends to health problems, so sometimes hides herself away and avoids the world. So it’s always a bit pleasing when she’s feeling enough herself to roll around in a sunbeam, basking us in the adorableness… Read more »

Love Is (Edible)

Last night, Z sent me a link to something he was thinking of buying. I said yes, and that’s why we have a freaking display rack of 200 Chupa Chups in the house. I mean, come on, what could be cooler? And he did the math and it comes in at about 12 pence a lolly, so it’s good value… Read more »

Z and I do the vast majority of our grocery shopping online for delivery. We tend to start in the discount section, which means that we get some things we’d probably not get otherwise. One of mine this most recent shop was cinnamon rolls, which nobody regrets. We all had one as a post-dinner treat and were well received. It… Read more »

Date Night!

      2 Comments on Date Night!

In honour of our 10th anniversary, Z arranged for his parents to take the kids so we could go out and have a meal on the town. He casually surprised me with the idea yesterday so we would have time to decide before going out tonight. It was an easy pick — there is a new Mexican in town, and… Read more »

That Western War

      No Comments on That Western War

Being, of course, the correct way to eat a scone during a cream tea. For what it’s worth, I had one each way and couldn’t make my mind up as to which was better, so I guess I’m just going to have to eat more scones until I have a more definitive opinion. I suspect that it’s going to be… Read more »

Fly-By Birthday-ness

I came, I saw, I turned 35. I had a good meal, I socialised with friends, and got slightly miffed by someone being an ass. The latter was a minor dent on an otherwise stellar day, but I had a good whine about it on the way home and feel oodles better. I think. *chuckles* But really, it was mainly… Read more »

Food, Glorious Food!

At our normal Thursday meeting, the pub in question puts on some free grub for us. It’s usually some potato chips and sandwiches, but they gave us the option of chipping in and getting something a bit fancier. Don’t let the savoury picture fool you — that was only a fraction of the trays they presented us. Suffices to say,… Read more »

I’m Done For

      No Comments on I’m Done For

Today was one of those rare days that I was in the office properly. There is a single November year end account, so I figured it would be a good idea to go in and work through it with my hand held. I’m going to go back in in January for a few days for the same reason. And while… Read more »
