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

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

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

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

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
Happy birthday from your proper little madam

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
