I'm feeling Christmassy

on December 11, 2009 - 6:42am

I haven't really been in the Christmas spirit so far this year, but yesterday as I was nursing my early morning cup of coffee, I thought I'd play Noel and it really got me in the Christmas mood. I made my Christmas pudding, and while that was steaming away for 8 hours I thought I'd go shopping for Christmas presents.

I hadn't bought even one so far, and with Christmas only a couple of weeks away I thought I'd better make the effort. I got everything that everyone wanted plus a few little surprises for some people. I got all but a few things that I needed and came home ladened down like an old cart horse, but it was worth it.

Wild and Wonderful

on November 30, 2009 - 4:46am

At home this weekend, I was looking out of my kitchen window and saw a pheasant in my garden. I've never seen one before. It's got the most beautiful colours. My cat Bella of course thinks Christmas has come early and after catching her sneeking up on it on Saturday, I've had to keep her in the rest of the weekend. I looked it up and it's a ring necked pheasant. I only hope it stays safe and that someone doesn't get it for Christmas dinner. I being the big softy that I am bought a big bag of bird seed yesterday so that it wouldn't go hungry. (honestly I'm not trying to fatten it up for Christmas). Picture of pheasant attached (not the actual one, it flew away when I got my camera out darn it)

Roger, if you are reading this and Mo, I can't remember your user names on here so can you make me a friend request so that I can add you as friends. Shirley, Mary and Maureen I've sent you friend requests but you haven't accepted them yet.

Take Care

What a day

on November 15, 2009 - 9:11am

I just this minute sat down for the first time today. I went to the gym this morning for two hours. Came home cleaned the house, the fish tanks, cooked dinner and then made my first batch of mince pies.

I know, it's a bit early to be baking mince pies but I bought a red apple wreath yankee candle yesterday, and it makes the house smell just like Christmas so I thought, what the heck. So here I sit with a lovely cup of tea my first today and a yummy mince pie - Mmmmmm.

Congratulations to Josh

on June 20, 2009 - 8:27am

Congratulations Josh on your induction into the hollywood bowl. Read your latest tweet. If your tired and hungry, you can always crash at my place, I make a mean beans on toast! LOL.

It's Saturday, and I've been scraping paper off my hallway for most of the morning, so that I can slap some more on tomorrow. (Where's the sense in this, I ask you). Once I've put the new paper up, I'm going to paint it because I couldn't find a wallpaper the colour I wanted. I looked everywhere. I'm having a little coffee break at the moment.

I hope everyone is well and enjoying their weekend.

Take care
Jo
