The Friday Five – Ear Worms

First up: I got another haircut. Yes I did. But! But! This haircut, it was a good haircut. Well, it wasn’t a bad haircut, anyway. Terry’s reaction: “It looks exactly the same as it did before.” Money well spent, then,…

Thankful.

We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK, obviously, but today we’re celebrating anyway, because as well as being Thanksgiving, today is also the day we got the results back from Terry’s latest round of blood tests. This something we…

Review | The Neutrogena Wave facial cleanser

Do not adjust your sets! We didn’t suddenly turn into a gadget blog: this is the Neutrogena Wave, and it’s a vibrating facial cleanser. See that fuzzy little pad on the end? That’s a disposable cleansing pad. To make it…

The Friday Five! It’s back!

The perils of working from home in the winter

I haven’t left the house since we got back from the Halloween party on Saturday night, other than a quick visit to Terry’s mum (who lives just around the corner) on Monday. I have no idea how this happened. I…

Aaaww!

Obligatory Election Post

OK, so it’s not actually “obligatory”, and I seriously doubt there’s anyone out there who hasn’t decided who they’ll be voting for, but just in case there is, I thought I’d put this out there again: Meanwhile: Seems pretty clear-cut,…
