Spotted this fizzy creature on the wheelie bin. Didn't think it quite a home so it's now been relocated.

Actually today I've found no end of caterpillars. Non quite as striking though.

I'm 5 foot 4 in on a good day, hardly tiny, once concidered average height.

So how come all my jeans are too long, some that are supposidly short are two inches too long!

And why can you only buy mens shirts in plain, striped or check?

See original post

 Because I'm 5ft 9 in and considered average height too?

Morning all. Forgot to turn the alarm off so laying in bed waiting for his lordship to realise I need tea.

I have scrubbed some places, vacuumed others, done the big shop, stressed about finding the right gift for someone who hates gifts, and am back laying on the bed trying to decide what to wear tonight when we all go out for a meal. I've been putting off buying new clothes for a few years now. The wardrobe is getting desperate! It's currently a toss up between jeans and the shirt or rather loud purple ball gown.

Anyone for a mug of tea?

Muddle; he's not one for gifts (hates them truth be told) but in the staff room I'm always hearing him chuntering about only wanting half a mug of tea which people seem incapable of making. So he's a mug with a very careful (and almost straight) line painted on by myself to help indicate to people where to aim for. The mug I found was reduced to £1.50 (was £5.... for a mug!!) but when you add the card £2.00, paper £1.50, ribbon £2.99, bag £1.00   .... my silly personalised gift is suddenly quite cheap looking!

Endless tea. I like your other half already!!

Patsy; than can you tell me where the devil I've put the wrapping paper?? I only brought it this morning how can I have lost it already.

Why do we even still use wrapping paper and fancy bags for gifts. The extras cost more than the actual gift.

Patsy are you spying on me? Or can you hear the ranting from my kitchen as I attend to get the label off my friends gift??
