Reasons to Hate Winter #133

It’s highly unlikely, I know, but some of you may have noticed that I am a week late posting the next instalment of the Artist’s Way. I do have a good excuse though. It was the weather’s fault. Okay, not really, but in a round about way it was. Sort off. You see, being a bit of a hippy/troglodyte/lunatic (or any number of other disparaging names you care to insert – I’ve heard them all), I don’t wear shoes unless […]

A Rant!

I haven’t blogged for a while because I’ve been really busy with work and my cat, who seems to be having a relapse. Not to mention that January is the month the dreaded tax return has to be in. Thank goodness for my accountant because if I got started on the Inland Revenue this post would go on forever. So, the rant. This morning I got yet another letter from the TV Licensing people. Now, I’d better give you a […]

Updates, Updates and er… Updates

Yes, lots of updates today and none of them about the weather. Well, maybe just a little one. THE SNOW IS MELTING! That’s the important bit out of the way. Now for the post. Computer update: I’ve spent the last couple of days playing with my new computer. Okay, it’s not new, in fact, in technology terms it’s a dinosaur, but it has a shiny new operating system and lots of new goodies to play with. And no, it’s not […]

May The Blue Bird of Happiness…

…fly up your nose and, in so doing, ensure you have a wonderful 2010. Not that having the Blue Bird of Happiness up your left nostril would necessarily be the best start, but never mind. Happy New Year anyway. So, how did 2010 start for you? I was washing a ton of dishes at 3:30 this morning. No, the transformation from domestic disaster to domestic goddess was not one of my new year’s resolutions. Nor was I cleaning up after […]

An Amazing Experience – Thank You, Anita

I’ve said this before, I never blog twice in one day unless it’s something important. Well, this is. Today I met the most amazing person. And all I really know about her is that her name is Anita and she is a wonderful woman. You see, today my boy cat, Phil, took a turn for the worse and I had to take him to the emergency vet. Now, I know I can be a cynical old moo but I do […]

The Dangers that Lurk

Right, today was supposed to be the second update of the Artist’s Way but since I’ve just nearly killed myself in the kitchen, I thought a public safety announcement was in order. Well, that and the fact that I haven’t quite finished the week’s tasks. Now, I know if you watch the news and/or have ever had the misfortune to encounter any of the UK’s Health and Safety laws, you are well aware that there is danger all around us. […]

Chocolate, Cats and Confessions

I did it! Yup, I actually made the Christmas chocolates last beyond boxing day. And I still have one left to prove it. My self control knows no bounds. Well, other than staring at the last Christmas chocolate wondering how much longer I can make it last, today has been another uneventful one. Well, pretty much. I skated walked to the shop this morning intending to buy bread and milk but, of course, they didn’t have any. The shelves were […]

RIP Iceosaurous Rex

I knew it! I just knew it was more than a mere icicle. Not only was Iceosaurous Rex the biggest, meanest and most scary icicle ever formed in the UK, it was also a vampire. How do I know this? Well, for the first time since our mythical heatwave, the sun shone today. It peered around a snow cloud for all of ten seconds and Iceosaurous Rex leapt to his death. But not before he managed to produce mutant, non-vampire […]

Now You Can Eat a Whole Christmas Pudding and Still Lose Weight

Okay, not really. But you have to admit, as far as headlines go it’s a much better attention grabber than Merry Christmas. So, now that I have your attention, I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas. And If you don’t celebrate Christmas I hope you’re enjoying a bit of downtime from the usual working week. Speaking of working, that’s exactly what I’m doing today. If fact, I’m away at the ‘day job’ until the 29th of December. […]

Tis the Season to be…Stupid

Yes indeed. And you don’t get much more stupid than what I did today. Actually, I did several stupid things today, most of which involved food and cooking. But I will spare your sanity and only tell you about the one that upset my cat. Now, on account of recently discovering the caffeine content of my favourite new ‘fruit drink’, I decided to switch to something slightly less likely to stick me to the ceiling. I now allow myself the […]
