The DNA Results Are In!

Part of this quest of mine to work out a bit more about myself has lead me toward DNA tests. So far, I have had two. The first, from Ancestry.com is to determine what ethnicity I am. I don’t look typically anything and, not knowing anything about ancesters beyond a few generations, I thought it would be interesting. The second … Read More

Would You Clucking Believe It?

A few months ago, Vikki and I rehoused some ex-battery hens. Since their scrawny, baldy arrival, they have gotten plump and feathery. They no longer list from one tired leg to the other, they run fast, jump up on walls and generally boss the ducks around. And to think, if we hadn’t intervened, they’d be dog food by now. Remarkably, … Read More

Lacking Inspiration

As someone who might loosely be described as an “artist”, I have often found myself going through a creative vaccuum. I am in one right now, which is why I’ve not blogged in ages. There are often many causes surrounding such a funk and, on this occasion, it is that my mind is occupied elsewhere. Sometimes I find things so … Read More

To The Rescue!

We got three new additions to the menagerie today: Po, Phasma and Penguin. They are ex-battery chickens who had reached the end of their useful life so were due to become cat or dog food. Poor little buggers only stopped laying for a brief period as the moult but, any pause in egg production and they’re outta there! What a … Read More

What’s Your Excuse?

Like millions of people around the world, I did some gym work today. Leg extensions and squats, to be precise. My gym is a bit different to most, however, as it is outside. Now, if you live in California or Barbados or some other gloriously warm, hot and dry climate, this would not be any kind of deal. In fact, … Read More

17 Years Not Out

Vikki and I had our 17th anniversary on the 18th October. She was just 17 when we got together (nearly 18 – her birthday is on 23rd), but that small fact means that I have been a part of her life for HALF of her life. That is crazy. What is crazier though is the fact that we have made … Read More

List Of The Week-ish #12

Decided that I really should change the title of these LOTW. My good intentions go right out of the window as time becomes more and more limited and, when I have the time to blog, I want to write about other stuff. So, from hereon, this portion of the blog shall be known as – *drumroll* – LIST OF THE … Read More

List Of The Week #11

It’s been a couple of weeks. I know. When I started LOTW, I honestly thought it would be a proper LOTW. But, carrying on with apparent tradition, here is the List Of Wheneverthefuckilike! WATCHED “Ozarks”. Have you seen it? It is epic. A Netflix Original (those guys are knocking it out of the park), I was drawn to it being … Read More

I know I keep banging on about the weather but I really cannot remember a summer like this. Apart from a brief period of time in June, the prevailing weather in the UK throughout July and August has been cool, overcast and rainy. This sucks big, hairy balls. Winters are long in Britain and it is those few months of … Read More

Declutter Your Life

Something prompted a bit of a cleaning spree recently (the visit of Vikki’s mum) and, like most cleaning sprees, it concentrated on surfaces. Sparkling sides, polished cupboards, hoovered floors. Lovely. But what about all that crap that lurks behind those cupboards? The wardrobe that is practically bursting with clothes? The chest filled with DVDs… That last one? Guilty. To fit … Read More
