Christmas Eve Sticker Shopping
Sunday, December 24, 2017      4 comments

I trundled off to Tesco a little after 2 p.m this afternoon to see what 'yellow sticker' bargains I could get. Oh my goodness it was mayhem. People pushing, shoving, grabbing. Since I have been going 'yellow sticker' shopping, I have learnt n... Read more

The Hen Night. My daughter and future SIL drove me to Westcliff today so I could visit my mother. Future SIL was working this morning so we set off a bit after midday and arrived a little before 2 p.m. The home mum is in is about two minu... Read more

Well, for my hob at least. The last three weeks or so I've been eating vegetarian. Actually, that's not necessarily entirely true depending on how precise you are about the term Vegetarian. I've had no meat/poultry/fish/seafood but I have had... Read more
Bearing Gifts
Wednesday, December 20, 2017      4 comments

I received some gifts today. They weren't delivered by Three Wise Men. I'm not convinced you could find Three Wise Men these days. It was my friend Sally that came bearing gifts. And not Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh either. Which to be hone... Read more
Eating an Elephant
Tuesday, December 19, 2017      2 comments

Could you eat a whole elephant?* I'm sure you have absolutely no wish to eat an elephant, but could you if for some reason you had to? "No of course not" I hear you all chant in unison. But you're wrong. You COULD eat an elephant. How? Wel... Read more
Moving In

I'm thinking of moving in to the Town Hall. I've been back and forth so often the last few weeks that taking up permanent residency seems to make sense. I found the missing Bank Statement today and hot footed my way over there. The guy from t... Read more

Do you ever suffer from migraines? I do. Or more to the point - mostly I don't. Because I know the main things that trigger them for me and I avoid them. So when my eyesight got blurry earlier on and I could see flickering lights, I knew wha... Read more

The Hen Night. I haven't got very far in my de cluttering quest to obtain a relaxed and happy frame of mind in readiness for The Hen Night. This past week seems to have involved endless traipsing back and forth to the Town Hall to sort out... Read more

The Wedding of The Century The Hottest Most Stylish Mother of The Bride ever in the History of Humankind [to be] has gained a pound yet again. And no, before you suggest this is because it's the Festive Season, I'll just point out The Hot... Read more
An Inspector Calls
Thursday, December 14, 2017      4 comments

Throughout this year I have been trying to sort out the legal muddle regarding my house. Round and round and round I've gone. Hitting brick walls left, right, and centre. Back in April I contacted my original divorce solicitors and asked them... Read more
Christmas Past, Present, and Future
Wednesday, December 13, 2017      6 comments

Last year we spent Christmas Day at my daughter's flat. She wanted to host Christmas as it was her first year in her own place. It felt odd to me but, I totally understood why she felt like that and we had a lovely day. This house doesn't fun... Read more
There and Back Again.

I finally made it over to the Town Hall again today. The pavements were still rather icy but the boots I was wearing have a pretty good grip. Problem is they have very hard soles and really hurt the corn on the ball of my right foot. Better t... Read more

How does that work? It's supposed to be SUNday. Granted the sun is still up there somewhere but it wasn't making its presence felt today. The snow on the other hand was very much making me aware of its presence. Its been bitter cold. ... Read more
