And the cows are almost cooing, And the turtle-doves are mooing, Which is why a Pooh is poohing In the sun.
It's definitely Spring in West Ealing, and I've been cycling around like a maniac, particularly today, when I went from home to the girls' school, back via Northfield Avenue, and around there, then to school and back again just now.  16km in total; next up ...

For, you see, so many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.
We did some baking today.  After all the cycling and swimming and walking and looking at statues of sheep yesterday, we decided to have a bit more of a homebody day today.  The children were both exhausted, and agreed to stay in bed until 9; the plan was fl...

I ate a whole bunch of fiberglass insulation. It wasn't cotton candy like that guy said. My stomach's itchy.
Bank Holiday Monday night.  We've been busy today; Simon is training for the London to Brighton bike ride in June (Fathers' Day, we each do our own thing on our respective thing) so he rode out to Princes Risborough, and because I am kind and do not think h...

Once I accidentally drank an entire bottle of vinegar. I thought it was terrible wine.
More sewing, this time for the children.  I only make very simple dresses for the girls, they grow so very fast, and I don't like fussy things on little girls.  The pattern I use is a Simplicity one, and it is about as simple as you can get.  Two dress shap...

I like my money where I can see it - hanging in my closet
I've been sewing up a storm recently.  As I may have mentioned, Simon bought me a lovely Mother's Day present, a two day Mortmain sewing course at Badger and Earl.  Well, day 2 sort of ran away from me, and I didn't manage to actually finish the dress until...

You should never, never doubt something that no one is sure of.
It's been a while.  Life keeps on happening, in its boring and inevitable way.  Module 1 of my course is now over, and I still have 2500 words of my essay to write. The title has changed, along with the focus, but nothing else.  Module 2 has started, what t...

I wouldn't know. I've never been hungover. After I've had too much whiskey, I cook myself a large flank steak, pan fried in salted butter. I eat that, put on a pair of wet socks and go to sleep.
Last day of the holidays today, and even though I've really enjoyed it, I'm sort of looking forward to going back to work next week.  Actually I'm really looking forward to my children going back to school; and I will actually take some time in the mornings...

It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?”
It's somehow still the Easter holidays, and I'm desperately hunting around for things to fill the girls' days given that we only booked one week of tennis for Lucy, and there's only so much CBeebies I can stand.  We've still got swimming in the afternoons; ...

3. “If this is your idea of a joke, then you belong in a Woody Allen film because I’m not laughing.
I started writing a blogpost on the blogger app, and the keyboard wasn't working, which was a massive pain in the bum and totally got in the way of the creative writing process. Happy Easter if you celebrate it; we've had a really nice day with egg hunting ...

This online slang dictionary says it's short for "amazing." Or it's a club drug made from a tooth whitener. Either way you win.
I've been on my own all day, well ever since last night really, and I've started to go a bit feral.  I've been writing my SENCO course essay all day, and obsessively eating brie and listening to the frightfully posh Paul Temple on YouTube.  Did you know you...

When I was your age, television was called books.
Everything keeps getting in the WAY of blogging.  Whether it's cooking, or looking after the children, or working, or not writing my essay, the blog has taken a bit of a back seat recently.  Which doesn't mean that I don't want to write anything, just no TI...

What a life it would be, If you could come to mine for tea, I'll pick you up at half past three, We'll have lasagne
The immortal lines of the Nineties finest lyricist always go through my head when I'm cooking for the family, especially when I'm buggering about making a white sauce, stopping Simon from smashing the printer in sheer frustration and comforting two hysteric...

Introduction

I knit, I sew, I run, I look after children and hamsters, I take truly terrible pictures, I cook, I complain.  Sometimes all at the same time.
