We attended the local parish AGM last night because we wanted to know more about the village where we live. I have to admit it was like being in a strange new world because there were reports from the footpaths officer, etc. What really amused me was the heated debate about the cockerels which were [...]

Only a couple of days left of the blue, grey and white months for Project Spectrum so some quick photos. Blue and white houses in a row in Canterbury. Blue flowers in the Dane John Gardens. Blue grey sky. Sky at home. The blue sky in the Dane John. Perdita in a blue box. pao [...]
George had to have a gift for his birthday so I bought him 24 series 1 on DVD. We are now just about to start 3pm-4pm. Only 9 hours to go. I wonder how much more of this I can get done from 3pm to midnight? I blame Chris. The cardi is the Eloise cardigan [...]
George is one today! (in case you are wondering, George is pao’s shiny new cornea) I am so thankful to that person who ticked yes to donating their cornea. It is such a precious gift and such an amazing one too. It has completely changed pao’s life.
I can’t believe we’ve been in our new house a whole month today – first mortgage payment today. Only 359 to go! I have been doing a tiny bit of knitting but I can proudly present my first Littlebourne FO. Well, really they are a Canterbury/Littlebourne FO because I’d started them when we still lived [...]

It was interesting to hear the [...]
This was the best room in our old house We’d spent 18 months or so without a bathroom to get to this blissful tiny blue room. I loved it because it was double aspect and had the most light in the house. It wasn’t the most relaxing room though because it could get a bit [...]
It used to be quite a free-for-all, a stretch or you starve sort of affair. Can’t you see, we’re hungry? Now it is a more dignified rush to the door instead. It is nice to make sandwiches without Phoebe’s persistent meow and attempts to scale the counter for a morsel of whatever it happens to [...]
The annoying thing about not having internet access is that I can’t keep up with blogs and blogging. And the bad news is that the phone coming can’t take the marker off the line until 14th March. I can then ring my ISP on 15th March to make an appointment for them to come and [...]
