To misquote Frank Turner: you know your life is heading in a questionable direction when you hurt your back and daren’t ask anyone for help.. It’s indeed a long road up to recovery. And to a tidy house.
Friday A friend from a place I used to work is coming over for the weekend. She had some kind of conference during the week and added a few days holiday since she was here. We’d planned to meet in the city and do touristy things and were working out the details. And then she […]
Here we go again. Jesska makes a plan and life makes it impossible to see it through. *** At the end of August I bought new fish. They were quite expensive as cheap fish go (nothing like as expensive as posh koi) and quite a luxury considering that I don’t “need” fish for anything. I […]
It’s Friday. I’m supposed to be in the middle of a two day committee meeting. Instead I am lying on a towel looking at this: rejoicing at the slight breeze and listening to the birdsong and the buzzing of a million insects. Yesterday I looked up at the sky through the branches for the first […]
I recently gave away the first piece of furniture I ever properly owned. A lady came early in the morning to pick it up for her cats… *** I bought the papasan chair at a carboot sale in autumn 2006. The town held a car boot sale once a year and pretty much everyone who […]
Curiosity probably didn’t directly kill the cat. It probably just kept it up so late it was too tired to avoid the things that could kill it. Finding things out has to be worth a bit of sleep loss though, right? 🙂 Zzzzzzz
Someone was telling me about a present they’re making for their grandson. It’s quite complicated and involves making various animals from different parts of the world. He’d just finished a group of baby seals. “Are you going to make a big seal to look after them?” “No. The North pole is full!”
Just because I don’t remember putting pictures of it up before..
(Another one from the drafts folder) “I hate satnags And traffic And running out of fuel And hotel receptionists who have to show you how the lights work in your room And not finding anywhere to park And people who don’t put signs up to let you know where you’re going And the lack of […]
She must have hitched a ride with the pondweed… The aquarium water must feel like summer, too bad my flat isn’t sunny and warm really! 😉
They say you can’t cure stupid.
You can’t really cure muscle ache either
My sister is always adopting animals. This time she must have decided it was my turn. She left a small animal with my parents for me to collect and look after. Unfortunately I don’t know quite what it is. I thought it was a baby puffin, my parents said it looked more like a penguin […]
I’m not particularly keen on snakes. I don’t have anything in particular against them, but I have less for them. I have no desire to be bitten and/or poisoned and possibly even less desire to be squeezed to death. This isn’t about that kind of snake. *** Recently I started learning Python. That’s a programming […]
Look! Ok, you might need some help if you don’t know what you’re looking for.. Isn’t it awesome?! 4 of the 7 miniature schrimp I bought a month ago were ‘pregnant’. At some point I noticed that they were no longer carrying their eggs, but there was no sign of the babies anywhere. Until now. […]
