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! 😉
Once upon a time, I soldered something together in school. At some point between then and now I made some stained glass windows and some small Tiffany style pieces. That kind of involves soldering, but with a huge soldering iron and a reel of lead/tin you could probably knock someone out with. Since then, my […]
Sometimes pancakes are the best kind of therapy…
It stopped raining briefly and the sun came out to say hello before she set.
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. […]

This morning I heard an ominous hissing…
According to a worn out proverb/saying/phrase, an Englishman’s home is his castle. This English girl has a new Castle 🙂 🙂 🙂 I don’t have a moat, or even a pond*, but I do have a balcony (and a cellar). And 60 square metres of floor all to myself. (Wheeeeeeee!) I signed the papers on Tuesday, […]
