I guess somebody didn't win the lottery.


Make yourself at home, Billy.

I found The Grinch at the charity shop for 99p! How cool is that? And in case anyone is wondering, this should be taken to represent the original Boris Karloff cartoon Grinch. Not that effing Jim Carrey monstrosity.

We had SEVEN five pound notes all with consecutive serial numbers in one of our tills. How strange is that? Sally thought it was a sign that we should play the lottery.

How would you answer the question 'Does this tie go with this shirt?'

Emily's home for yet another trip to the GP. This time she got an even stronger inhalor. Hopefully, that'll do the trick.

Sally and I got to stay indoors in the warmth drinking coffee while everyone else went out for a fire drill.

SNOW! And my winter jasmine is flowering in November. Mother Nature has gone mad.

Stacey and Emily are making fun of me. But they obviously don't understand the fine art of trying on handbags. Stacey's handbag says 'Debbie' on the shoulder strap. Too cool.

Flippin' Heck. It's not even Christmas yet.

Sally said the f-word.

I cleaned out my kitchen cupboards today. The winner of the oldest food product is Tobasco Sauce. Best before September 2002. People who know me will know that 2002 is the year I went back to work. Which is when I stopped using ingredients like Tobasco sauce and stopped knowing what was lurking in the back of my cupboards. It's bad, I know.

Loyalty cards are back. I hate the loyalty cards. They bring out the worst in people.

This is the look on Emily's face when she realized that she had phoned both parents up for a lift from the station and we'd each shown up separately.

James always wins the most amazingly awful prizes at work. Today he won a swan soap dish set. It's too hideous even for me to use.

Wednesday, 12 November 2008


Seriously. He's still putting up lights on the SAME tree.

This is how dark it was when Molly finally strolled in the door. Six O'CLOCK.

What a miserable day.

Lizzy went to London to work on her photography project.  I went to London to carry bags and pay for things. 


Do you know how difficult it is to take pictures of fireworks?  It's nearly impossible.  This is the best there is.

We have been watching this man put up these lights for the last week.  He's been working on that particular tree for TWO whole days.  Much of his time is spent looking up.

I was trying to take a picture of Molly in her cadet uniform but she was resisting because she thinks she looks less than 100% cool.  Emily is trying to make her stand still, plus Emily does like to be in photos.

Look at the ridiculous amount of snacks James bought for watching the election tonight.

They've put up Fairy lights at the pub.

I came so close to buying this tiny can of expensive Crisco today.  So.  Close.

I never share candy corn.
