As you may have figured out from my sporadic blogging of late, I’ve been a wee bit busy. Cramming in ALL THE WORK before Christmas so that I can have a proper holiday; trying to get kids in the right place at the right time… read full entry →

Remember The Snowman?

In Misc

Remember when I saw a flashing Snowman in August? Well, I went in to Shrewsbury again with Karl at the weekend and couldn’t see it at all. I think they’ve got their a bit seasons mixed up. Oh, did I mention that my next-door neighbours… read full entry →
