Regular readers may recall my dash out to get replacement bits for my daughter's 'something old, something new' package, only for the original items to turn up in the nick of time. The weeks have flown by since then. Today I figured I should r... Read more

I mentioned yesterday about the blocked kitchen sink. Tbh it has been a problem on and off for the last year or so. I have spent an inordinate amount of time today trying to sort it out. My friend POLSKARENIA suggested caustic soda. I know I... Read more

Today was a designated Tennis Watching Day. I spent a very enjoyable afternoon watching the last two singles rubbers in the Davis Cup tie between Spain and Germany. Why you may be asking. On the other hand you may be thinking 'oh god, she's c... Read more

Let's just face it - I'm going to have to do it myself aren't I? It's not just cleaning either. There is clutter and mess and muddle which will ha... Read more
Catching up

No waffling on about the latest news at Tiz Towers tonight. I'm 'catching up'. Or trying to. Normally when people comment on one of my blogs, I reply on their page. But for a while there has been so much happening that's caused stress,... Read more

Today is the anniversary of my father's birthday. He would have been 96 today. The first time I ever thought to ask him how old he was, he answered [with a grin on his face] that he was 44. Lying b@stard was actually 51 at the time though obv... Read more

Those of you who are interested in football [or soccer as our American cousins insist on calling it] and who are maybe 40+ might recall Ray Wilkins. A few days ago he was taken to hospital after a heart attack. Sadly he died today. He was a B... Read more

This evening I did something dumb that is really unusual for me. I don't mean to suggest doing dumb things is unusual for me - just this particular dumb thing. I needed to pop over to my local shop. Because of the whole bailiffs nonsense I h... Read more

A few days ago I blogged about hearing some shocking news regarding someone in my friendship group being in prison. Later that evening The Worker Friend happened to call and I spoke about it with him. Or more to the point I spoke about my bein... Read more

Easter Sunday. Nothing planned. I'm not a 'believer' so it isn't a major day for me in terms of faith. But it doesn't seem so long ago that I'd make the weekend special for the children. Hot cross buns for breakfast on Good Friday. Dinner w... Read more

It's Good Friday the traditional day to eat hot cross buns. I didn't buy any though. Deliberately. I couldn't really see the point just for me. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to suggest I'm not worth it. Just that while I 'quite' like hot... Read more

Earlier today a friend called me to ask for advice on a computer related matter. I'm no computer expert but compared to most of my friends my age I'm a tech whiz kid - which says more about their lack of computer skills than my ability! During... Read more

It's the anniversary of my sister Marie's birthday. She would have been 64 today. It's so hard to imagine that. She died in February 1981 shortly before her 27th birthday. I have been without her for way, way, over half my life. Physically ... Read more
