A First World Problem
Thursday, April 26, 2018      2 comments

But a problem nonetheless. There comes a point when there is little, if anything, one can cut back on. I have been going over and over my expenditure today. What can I reduce? The answer is very little. In fact there's only two ways I c... Read more

These days, my 'post box' is looking a bit tattered. It's constantly being filled with junk and bills. Especially at the moment with local elections coming up. ... Read more

What did I tell you? There's something in the air I said with regards my house situation. Well now I have received notification of the next Court date. Monday 21st May. My mother would be horrified if she were capable of understanding. She ... Read more

Don't listen to the Weather Man/Woman I said. Today was forecast to be grey and overcast with a high chance of rain. Elaine and I arrived at the Boot Sale a little before 8 a.m It was sunny but quite breezy. As the morning wore on the breeze... Read more

I'm definitely going ahead with this. Planning has begun in earnest. It will be happening on Saturday June 30th and will take place in Elaine's wonderful garden. Lots of ideas whizzing around in my head. I've already informed the 'Birthday B... Read more
Can you feel it?

There's something in the air. Sometimes we sense change without knowing why. An obvious example is changes in the seasons. It may be yet another cold winter day, yet somehow we sense spring in the air. Or a hot summer's day but we hear the w... Read more
Data Protection

We've all heard the dreaded words 'data protection' I'm sure. Don't get me wrong, I think it is a good thing that our private information is protected [except on facebook seemingly]. But there's protection of our privacy, and then there's obfu... Read more

Yet another meeting of the Birthday Bunch Brunch today. So many of us have our birthdays in March and April that we have fallen behind. We still have two March Birthdays to celebrate. We were somewhat depleted in numbers again today. I pulle... Read more

I don't often comment on political issues on these pages - it's not what Spark is for. However, I feel so strongly about this issue that I just have to vent a little. After the second world war, Britain needed to rebuild both our infrastru... Read more

Sunday, April 15, 2018      6 comments

My boys ask 'how high'? I've only ever known my eldest boy to tell her 'no' once. Even my youngest who can be a contrary bugger does as his big sis tells him. A few weeks before the Wedding of The Century, my eldest boy told his younger broth... Read more
7Tea Birthday Celebrations
Saturday, April 14, 2018      4 comments

Good news. I rang Elaine earlier to ask how she was feeling. Definitely on the mend she told me. More importantly, she sounded very chirpy. I shall still be keeping a close eye on her [as I'm sure all the 'Bunch' will] but I do feel a little... Read more
Birthday Brunch

The Birthday Brunch Bunch met up today to celebrate my birthday. I suppose I should really call us The Belated Birthday Brunch Bunch because we rarely meet on the actual birthday in question. Especially in my case as I share my birthday with m... Read more

I don't mean here on Spark. I'm afraid you're stuck with my ramblings. One of the things I like about Spark is that it is rare to come across any outright nastiness. That's unusual. Pretty much every other forum or group I've used has an el... Read more
