Des res.

Quiet, warm and very fluffy. That’ll do Arnie, that’ll do.

Fighting aliens…

…is a very noisy affair, whichever method you prefer.

A pocketfull of shells,…

sand, stones and seaweed…smuggled home from the beach. I was wondering why Gruff was being so quiet on the beach today.

Santa’s been!

A very happy Christmas to you all and remember, a sprout is not just for Christmas, it will probably be around until about New Year when your kids will celebrate their demise…

First day if the holidays and all three have succumbed to the lovely norovirus, how lovely.

Christmas cake.

Baked and iced by Mum, decorated by the kids. Can you tell?

Couch potatoes.

It’s been a long day.

I’m Santa…

…no, I’m Santa.
Everyone wants to be Santa but we know there’s only one and it won’t be long now…
Im Santa

Somewhere quiet.

Sometimes you need to be somewhere quiet. Today I had to take myself somewhere where I could remember, cry, have the wound ripped off for a few hours and allow the memories to haunt me. I don’t know how other peope remember the day they lost a parent or a loved one but I find it’s easier to be alone for a bit(with dog).
Back to the business of Christmas tomorrow.

The countdown has begun…


Watching a film.

Thought Wallace and Gromit and “Curse of the Were Rabbit” would meet with their approval!

Boy meets spider.

Gruff’s not a huge arachnid fan.

Drown your dinner…

…in ketchup. Yummy, just what my cooking needed.
Who wants food with their ketchup or shall I just provide a straw?

Soggy moggy.

Raining is it Arnie?

It’s that time of year again? Oh flip, I hope Father Christmas has put me on the good list…more moleskines please!

Loving my first nativity concert of the year am breaking open the mince pies early to celebrate…

Prima donna.

High on a hill…
