Be careful what you wish for.......
We have just returned from a combined visit/holiday with my daughter in East Anglia.  I was so looking forward to spending time with her and enjoying a relaxing break. Well, it WAS relaxing, but not quite in the way I'd envisaged. On day two, in the morning...

Called to account......
For TWO WHOLE DAYS I have been doing the annual accounts.  As a result  I'm all numbered out and my digital keypad finger is throbbing. It's the same every year.  I put it of and put it off then have a sudden and dramatic change of heart and take a mad run ...

Where Bloggers Create 2014....
Good grief......doesn't time fly? It's hard to believe that this time last year I was in the throes of giving the workroom a complete makeover..... a task which I thought would take up to two weeks, and ended up taking almost six. I've just been looking bac...

Going viral......
Small Dog has had a Facebook page since Feb 2013.  She's had a core of loyal followers and in the past year has gained a respectable 100 or so Likes, presumably from those who don't find her 'ecksperrymentil' spelling gives them headaches and nausea. For so...

Feelgood Friday......NOT!
This week has been a bit of a bugger. First the damage to our little caravan followed by several days of stress attempting to pin down the culprit. Then Small Dog's leg injury and subsequent trip to the vet.  If you're not on my FB you will have missed all ...

Rant of the week......
It's been a while since I had a blog rant.  Looking back, the last time was in August last year so I'm probably overdue one. So here goes. Last week one of our neighbours called to say he was finally having his storm-damaged fences replaced, one of which ru...

The eyes have it......
I'm in inventin' mode.  Trying to work out the best, most foolproof way to make realistic 'paperweight'-style eyes for my little porcelain toy dolls.                                         I've tried no end of different tiny glass eyes over the years, but ...

It begins.......
Only a hermit or sportphobic recluse can have failed to notice that we're in the run up to the football World Cup. Cars are starting to sprout those silly little flags sticking out of their side windows and there's advertising everywhere. The entrance aisle...

Is it that time already....?
Somehow, without my noticing, almost half the year has slipped by already.  It's the first of June tomorrow, and the summer solstice is looming, after which we'll be on the long, slow slide of ever shortening days into winter. It's one of the many disconcer...

All's fair....? Obviously not!
If there's one thing that riles me above all else it's unfairness.  unfair - adj.   1. characterized by inequality or injustice 2. dishonest or unethical  Having been subjected to both of those definitions today it's easy to see why people who are put upon ...

Troll snot.....
PP is nothing if not inventive.   I sometimes say..."Hmm... I've had an idea.  I need a hoojamaflip with a basic reciprocating flange socket on the left side.  Can you make me one?" She will look thoughtful, go off, there will be some banging/sawing/drillin...
