Order in the house

Now I’m not a worrier, nor a person that panics! In the words of the iconic Doris Day “Que Sera Sera” but a routine visit to see the GP meant that a lump on my leg was to be investigated and to quote my rather lovely GP “Whipped Out” I was assured that there was…

A tale of two farms

Being a bank holiday weekend we decided that we would spend Saturday and Sunday pottering around and then catch up with the chores on Monday. So Sunday it was decided that we would visit Acton Scott Victorian Farm Museum, I have been to Acton Scott almost on an annual pilgrimage for the last three (maybe…

The Playground!

I have found myself disliking elements of Twitter lately, and saying it is like saying I am going off cake or tea! It is something that I thought I would never ever say. I recently went through the people I follow and thinned it out, something that I think Twitter users do on a regular…

Ladies who lunch (and some chaps)

I was invited to a lunch at a chum’s house down in Neen Sollars, I have blogged before about the amazing hospitality skills of Birgit and also about the lovely ladies that I lunch with. On this occasion I was taking my chum Tim with me, he had broken up from school (he’s a teacher…

Ladies (and me) who lunch

Yesterday I was invited to lunch at a friend’s house, she is a friend that I met through Twitter and we chat on a regular basis through the site.  There was a group of us going to lunch and I knew several of the ladies going and was looking forward to catching up with them and…

Teeny Tiny Post

Well I do believe that my writers block (how poncey and professional does that sound? It is after all just a blog) is behind me. And I have to thank several people and animals for helping me through with it, but those thank you notes will have to wait as I have so much to…

I *heart* being a country gay

I spent an entertaining Friday night in the company of my chum Tim, who has named us collectively “The Country Gays” I am not sure where the nickname came from but I like it. What we are is the opposite to the gay chaps that spend their Fridays and Saturdays in bars and clubs and…

Living for the weekend

I had a rather busy weekend, and now my cold has taken a firm grip and I am living on fruit teas and lockets. I am not a pretty sight at all at present and just want to take to my bed and hide from the World. I shall probably not post that much this…

I’m in with the in crowd! Well actually I’m not

Twitter recently has become somewhat of a popularity contest with tweets flying forwards and backwards asking for more followers or tweets informing you that they are only a few people away from a landmark number of followers. It was something that I vowed I would never get drawn into but I seem to have managed…

Silence is Golden

I have been unable to tweet for 24 hours, not because of technology issues, lack of signal or lack of twitter but because I have nothing to say! I am sure there are friends out there that are amazed by this statement. I am not saying I have been silent for over 24 hours, yesterday…
