Ironing It Out

I am NOT a fan of ironing! There, I’ve admitted it. It’s true that things look lovely all pressed and sharp, but the effort and time involved doesn’t balance it out in my books to make it a priority. The solution to this Martha Stewart dilemma… everyone does their own ironing in our house. If you […]

All Dressed Up

We’ve been the proud owners of this little car for two years now and one of the first things I asked for was new hubcaps…it had just one 😦 . Well, life comes and goes and we come and go with it, and the car has been used by all the kids at various times […]

A Spanner In The Works

A long day done and wanting to relax, my darling dearest wearily plodded up the stairs to start the relax process by changing into comfy clothes. He works long and hard and I really like to see him chill out in the evenings. However, what  greeted him upstairs spurred him into lightening action, bounding down the […]

Sing, Sing A Song

He might be a bolshy little fellow in his bright orange suit of feathers but, oh my, he can sing a great song. Seems to start with the cover coming off his cage until it goes back on at night. Personally, I LOVE it. My family, however, aren’t quite so thrilled. Perhaps they just don’t […]

Goosebumps Down My Spine

He sent a text saying he could be there at ten. Although it wasn’t an emergency I was grateful. A piano is an investment that needs to be looked after. Our piano is not only an investment but for me an emotional attachment. Out first Christmas together as Mr. & Mrs. He was late home […]
