Time

Time

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…

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!”. The recycling bins had been put out and put away again by one of the our neighbours without even asking them. Which was great as the plastic and cardboard one was chocker block!

I generally have … Read entire article »

Dear Oscar 13 already!

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 thoughtful especially to me!

Monday waffles

Monday waffles

I have a list of written blog posts in my head, which as you can imagine is not particularly useful. For some reason I write epic blog posts in wakeful moments in the night. Also on dogs walks or walking anywhere. This has led me to believe we really need to discover a brain to computer connection. I have been watching Dragon’s Den on the off-chance there is something in the pipeline but so far … Read entire article »

Why Energy Saving Lightbulbs are Essential in your Household

Why Energy Saving Lightbulbs are Essential in your Household   Most people still have incandescent lights hanging around. It’s understandable. They’re comfortable. You know how they work, and they are mostly reliable. They also have the benefit of having a solid track record. But, they waste energy and with the cost of electricity where it is, there’s a lot of good reasons to switch to energy-saving bulbs.
