I can't see any difference here.

But I've spent all day cutting out and prit sticking so have to confess I'm not used to just dull colours (my little classroom art project is going to be BOLD).

Wintersong: thank you for posting. It makes me feel so much better knowing that our dog isn't the only one to be quite so... pathetic. I had to take him to the v.e.t.s last night for some jabs: all those smug cat owners with their little tiddles in small baskets all sat nicely and so easy to pick up as I hauled 27 kg of whimpering German Shepherd over my shoulder because he refuses to walk the moment we get near the v.e.t.s

Punkdoc: in short you should have realised that now that having a dog is a bit like having a small toddler. They're loving, trusting, and always by your side.

Oh and you can put them in time out too! (Though apparently a dog cage isn't suitable for a toddler... who knew).

Unlike a toddler you have no fears of them growing up and getting a teenage girl pregnant, or demanding money for university fees!

I watched the Creme thingy last night. What's wrong with slapping it in a bowl and pouring custard from a pot on it? Tsk some people...


Morning all. Currently gloriously sunny outside. Alas I am inside writing to decide how to write an email to all the schools that, for some silly reason, haven't booked to visit us yet. I'm thinking "hey teachers book now and I'll tell you where the chocolate is hidden!" Professional enough?


Have a lovely day everyone.

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.
