It’s that time … again!


It is just about a year since the last time K*** went away with her sister. She said then that it was a ‘one off trip’ and I thought at the time, that it could not be a one off because of the pre-holiday costs. You may remember (and I forgive you if you don’t) … Continue reading It’s that time … again!

Churn …


Now, this is an interesting word. Are we looking at a milk churn or something else? I am actually thinking ‘milk-churn’. I am usually transported to those imaginary childhood days when I like to think of milk being delivered in churns. Those days when the milkman had either a horse and cart or one of … Continue reading Churn …

Have I answered my own query …


Last month, I posed the question about upgrading to a paid plan rather than the free plan I currently use. The type of blog I write is basically a random thought blog.

She returned with an offer that K*** should join them on their next … Continue reading It’s been a long week …

One month down … rest of my life to go …

I’ve not seen anything that I could honestly is a job I want … Continue reading One month down … rest of my life to go …

One more week …


Well only five more 06:30 wake-up alarms! But it has been dragging on and on and on …….. and on and on. No luck on the part-time job front yet. K*** thinks I need to get something, in her words “That I would like to do …” My take on that is get something I … Continue reading One more week …

Building to the “Big Day” …


I’ve been neglecting my blog for a couple of weeks. What with the problems we have had with the transport for R*** and preparing for my impending retirement, I don’t seem to have had the time. Well, maybe that’s not the full story. I don’t think I have really had the inclination to put ‘fingers … Continue reading Building to the “Big Day” …
