SILVER LININGS

One excellent result of both Lo, she is a terrible Goddess and I having blowy, sneezy, coughy and sore throaty colds at the same time, is the delight of sleepless nights leading to meaningful conversations in the wee small hours.
“I wonder if there’s a magazine called Phlegm?”
“I don’t think so. Contact Victoria Beckham in the [...]

MERRY CHRISTMAS – Ho ho ho

Here’s a jolly picky of Lo, she is a terrible Goddess and Father Christmas. Lo is the one on the left. I recognise that look of suspicion.
I hope that everyone has a very merry Yuletide with suspicions being kept to the absolute minimum.

POP-UP ART SHOWS

One of the very nice things about living right on the coast is that unpretentious people create pop-up art shows in their gardens.

This installation changes through the year. New bits of flotsam and jetsam are found on the beach and added almost on a daily basis. Obviously bits are also removed as I remember a [...]

ARE WE VICTIMS OF OUR UPBRINGING?

To a limited degree Peabrains can multitask. By this I mean they usually remember to breath while doing something else.
I was enjoying my bowl of cereal the other morning (and managing to breath at the same time) when Lo, she is a terrible Goddess started spouting some pearls of wisdom from the kitchen just as [...]

IS THIS THE END!!?!!

We’ve been snowed in for nearly 18 hours now!!!!! There’s at least an inch of snow outside!!!!!!!
The neighbours went out yesterday and haven’t been seen since. I do hope that they’re stuck somewhere and haven’t gone on holiday – that would be really annoying.

HOMEWORK

“May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions – Joey Adams”

She decided to clamber in and out of all the kitchen cupboards cleaning and re-organising them. She’s been like Anthea Turner [...]

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR … AGAIN

46 years of too much bliss
Many laughs with hardly a hiss
A burning tea bag
What a wag
Pucker up now for a sloppy kiss
Lo, she is a terrible Goddess must be the unluckiest woman on the planet.

A PROPOSAL FOR GOVERNMENT FUNDING

Lo, she is a terrible Goddess and I have not been wasting our time since the departure of our guests after the Festive Season.
I was eating some Twiglets and Lo remarked that I seemed to be eating less of them this year. I replied that I was finding them a bit noisy. They are very [...]

MESOAMERICAN LONG COUNT CALENDAR

Its funny how the not too distant future is connected to the past.
I mentioned to Lo, she is a terrible Goddess how the world was going to end this coming December, on the 21st to be exact according to the Mayan calendar, and her first reaction was “Thank heavens for that. We won’t have to [...]

ANOTHER ONE’S BITTEN THE DUST

Well … that was an interesting birthday …
