BAD NEWS KIDS

Unfortunately I mixed up my list for Santa Claus and my ‘to do’ list. This means that I’ve got to buy all my own presents, I wish I hadn’t been so greedy, and Santa will be too busy grouting the bathroom, vacuuming the living room and mending the shed roof to be able to deliver […]

A DAY TO REMEMBER

I was sitting on the sofa the other day rearranging my chakras when I suddenly remembered that it’s Lo, she is a terrible Goddess’s birthday today. I snuck into her Amazon Wish List using lappytop when she wasn’t looking but then decided it would be more meaningful & personal if I made the effort and […]

I’ve literally spent several minutes inventing, researching, making and product testing the Hagrid Anti-Collider. It is fantastic! The Hagrid Anti-Collider [broom not included] This cutting edge device is guaranteed to help stop people colliding into you when shopping.

There was a book called ‘Good Breeding’ – full of photographs of prize animals accompanied by their owners from around the world taken by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. One of the main themes seemed to be huge testicles; […]

As a treat today I’m letting her paint the outside of the apartment and then take me out this evening for a local traditional meal ……. at the Irish restaurant […]

ONCE AGAIN ……

….. I’ve saved Zelda [and the Twilight Princess Midna]from Ganondorf. It’s only taken me 62 hours and 31 minutes [shusssssh, don’t tell the terrible Goddess]. Luckily the game was a birthday present from Penfold and the delectable Tango so, surely, I can’t be in too much trouble for wasting my time. OK, what’s next? All […]

GOOD CHEER ….. [and cheers]

Whether a birthday present  from a French sophisticate arrives to greet you when you get back from holiday….. ……. or if presents arrive very late from a teen of the 70’s …… …… it cheers you up no end – whatever the weather is like [wet and windy ever since we returned ………. tsk]. Thanks, […]

DP INFORMATION SERVICE

1. I have been alerted by those lovely people at Fuelmyblog about PAW. I hate buying presents for kids. Not because I hate kids – some are quite nice, from a distance – no, it’s because I never know what to buy them and I hate wasting money. Actually, I hate spending money, it doesn’t […]
