Panda those photographs are beautiful! Such vibrant colour.


Home from work and starting the washing mountain. If some one could explain WHY I like to save it for one day I'd be grateful! 


Pizza and salad tonight; nice and simple.

Afternoon all! Sat in a nice cool coffee shop. Alas at work but you can't have everything.


I had the most wonderful meal at a Chinese restaurant in Sheffield. Gluten free with wonderful staff who were happy to find the answers to anything you asked.

Mystery Strawberry Ailment and Advice

You can get ant gel which comes in pots that have holes only big enough for the ants: importantly this means that the cats can't get it on their paws and lick it off no matter how much they tap the pot of curiosity!

Dove; we've already had the asbestos garage taken away but when we brought the house we had an asbestos survey done which revealed nothing inside the house. We are however now more convinced than ever that the survey was the biggest waste of time and money.


Fortunately for us this asbestos is the lounge ceiling; the room that is currently brick walls, no carpet, and empty so at least it's not like we've just decorated!
