Found! The Hair Scroo!

Remember the Hair Scroo? They’re the hair grips from the 90s which I was obsessed with finding a couple of years ago, because they’re basically the ONLY thing that actually holds my hair up, and which I’m able to use…

You know you’re a blogger when…

Terry: Last night I had a nightmare. I dreamt we were in a car crash. The car rolled over onto its roof, and I was trapped inside it… Me: Wow, that must have been scary! Terry: And then you got…

If you know me in Real Life (as opposed to this fake, imaginary life we all have on the internets), you may want to prepare yourself for the fact that next time you meet me, I’ll be speaking a little…

The One With the Cyclist

So, I’m out walking Rubin. I’m NOT wearing a dress, you’ll be pleased to know, and neither is he. He is, however, wearing his leash, and because it’s one of those extendable ones, and Rubin likes to be as far away from…

Mt Flickr Pro account expired a couple of weeks ago, and I’m too mean to pay to renew it right now, so I’m afraid that means some of the photos I would normally have posted there are getting stuck here…

Firefighting

Yesterday afternoon, after a hard morning’s shopping,  Terry I decided to go to our favourite local restaurant for lunch. Well, we got there, sat down and the waitress took our order. Everything was just peachy. In the middle of the…
