I’ve been a busy bunny lately with a few things so the blogging has taken a bit of a back seat. Just looking at my messages and apparently I have new ‘Followers’. My lord I’m so popular! My blog is reaching the masses! I’m going worldwide! But I’ve got to be honest, some of them […]

Shocking!

Bloody DIY….. The curse strike’s again… “Let’s get an electrician in….” “What! And get charged a hundred quid to change a light fitting?.. No way José!” Maybe I should have rang an electrician… Electrics are not my strong point. Several years ago I fitted a fanlight in the living room and when you flicked the […]

What the hell is that about….

Last night I was walking with an old lady with no shoes on. Me not the old lady. We were trying to fix a broken cassette tape, brown, thin tape everywhere. Both of us madly trying to spool it back in. Then into some large building that was flooding quickly as I tried in vain […]

The Wedding (part three)

This drive was relatively easy. Three hours up through the Yorkshire Moors then into Cumbria to a tiny Hamlet called Hutton Roof. The house we were staying in was quite old with an odour of ancient, fusty carpets. It says 1874 above the door and I think that’s the last time it’s been decorated. The […]

The wedding (part two)

That’s 6 hrs 6 mins if you’re in a Ferrari. Took nearly 9 hours but worth every mile. What a beautiful place…. And of course, the happy couple!

The wedding. (Part one)

“No we don’t need to get married… We’re not bothered” Three years ago….. “We just don’t want all the fuss…” Two years ago… We might one day. Who knows?” Eighteen months ago.. “We might get married next year…” Four months ago… “Maybe next April…” Two months ago… “What are you doing on the twenty sixth […]

The case of the missing case…

Had a lovely three weeks in the Czech Republic. Flew back from Prague to Edinburgh airport on Monday evening. Good old Ryanair, the cattle truck of the sky. We went to retrieve our cases from the baggage carousel, and waited….then waited some more. By now the place was filling up with sweaty bodies, all wanting […]

Zelny Salat…

Greetings from Hradec Kralove! Well the language barrier seems to be getting bigger, not smaller here. I had a conversation with a lady behind a meat/cheese/salad counter yesterday. It started badly, then got worse and ended up a car crash. I was glancing at the coleslaw, all different kinds and it all looked a bit […]

Bubbles?

Back in the Czech Republic for awhile. We had a fantastic storm last night. Something straight out of a horror movie. Dr Frankenstein would have loved it. The wind started to howl, amazing lightening flashed and thunder literally did shake the building. Today though, has been very hot and beautiful. We walked to the shops […]

Bee gone….

I don’t know what’s happening this year. Our garden is very Bee friendly, and every year we get lots buzzing about but nothing at the minute. Our little friends are nowhere to be seen. We have quite a bit of lavender which is normally full of bees but not this year. Very strange. Now I’m […]

I love the fact that nature can grow anywhere if it’s just left alone. And before you ask, that isn’t Ed Sheeran hiding, it’s the back end of a cow!
