Cheers all! I'll get the cake at brunch time! As daft as it sounds it makes me feel so much better having you say well done!

If you get one like mine (big vicious German Shepherd well know for his needs for cuddles, holding paws when you're watching television, and being fed dinner from a spoon because actually eating it from a bowl like a proper dog is beneath him) you'll find they end up mostly sleeping all day until both of you are at home when he realises its worth while to wake up and grace us with his presence!

Right. Three cups of tea down and I'm ready to face the world!




I've just booked my 11th scout sleepover at the museum for this year. When I started here we had 1 booked in for the entire year and even that seemed a surprise for them. Can we get an internet whoop whoop that my efforts are paying off? (Please? Because whoop whoops and well dones don't seem to happen much around here).

What is your weather like?

The skies have opened and are currently trying to empty a small ocean onto the roof of the museum. I feel so sorry for all the parents with young children who must be getting a little frustrated with trying to plan days activities when the weather just wont do as the nice lady on the BBC weather asks it to do!

Spring bulbs - what to do with ones I have found?

Posted: 29/03/2016 at 06:58
Plant them! I found bulbs in the shed that I have no idea how they got there a few weeks ago. Planted out they're already putting up a show of green and if they don't flower this year at least they're feeding the bulb with nurtients for a lovely display next year.

Oh YStevie I didnt realise they were still with you. Keep a mop and bucket handy there'll be tears! I was nearly made homeless when our house move was delayed; but I can't imagine the stress AND a bump to worry about.

Plaster still coming off the walls. I'm developing a good sized bruise on my hand though!

Strong winds, rain, hail... we really are getting treated to the bank holiday weather!

The school next door has had its alarm going off since 06:15 and it is at just the right frequncy to pierce through my head. Caretaker is on holiday and the police are unable to assist. ( I have been out with a loud German Shepherd and some big boots to check no one is inside).

Heavy rain / snow with high winds.
I wish I could upload yesterday's hail storm for you! Here's a link to instragram for those who can...

Knocked all the plaster off the chimney breast and his lordship has gone and vacuumed... I take it a hint he doesnt want me to do the next wall today then.

82 weeks ago he ripped the fire place out I think I've waited long enough. We may be spending this summer living in a tent in what remains of the garden!
