The end of the school holidays is looming a little too quickly for my liking. It is the whole it is less than a week thing. The school uniform has yet to be purchased though this time it is just trousers, skirts and shirts. Last year it was the whole kit and P.E kit already for a new school after a move. Shoes I think fit but I better check as I am sure Oscar … Read entire article »

You know a house is a home when…

I wrote about this a while back, whilst I was still waiting for it to happen. But I think you know a house is a home when you get back from holiday and you go “Ahh it is nice to be back!”.

Morning faces

Morning faces

In your 20′s and even 30′s this is something you don’t need to worry about. Unless you had a night on the tiles then you might. Thinking about it, if you are sub 40 then remember that face.

Cooking up a spicy chicken casserole with Viking

Cooking up a spicy chicken casserole with Viking

Cooking with Viking, yes I thought exactly the same! Viking are surely only stationary, bubble wrap and office refreshments of the non-alcoholic type! But no Viking has a whole lot more from back to school (handy for this time of year), cleaning shop to their cook shop.

This is not to do with my home or where I live, it is to do with the direction I need to go … Read entire article »

Dear Oscar 13 already!

Dear Oscar, I just can not believe you are going to be 13! Well I can when it comes to the fact you are fast growing taller than me but in other ways where has that little Thomas fan gone? You have always been that mellow boy except on the very rare occasions you are not. You are always so kind and … Read entire article »
