Proper Skint

This month I am going to be proper skint and it?s the first time in a few years that I?ve said that. I?ve spent out quite a lot in the last month on doing up the kitchen which included oven, hob, sink, taps, worktops, plumbing, and even then I?ve still got to buy the finishing [...]

Party like it?s 1999

I saw this on the TV this morning whilst I was eating my cereal and thought I?d pop it up here. I was just wondering what dates we had to look forward to? The millennium is a pretty special date, and of course it doesn?t really mean anything but it was a nice round date [...]

Flushing out radiators

It?s at this time of year that you appreciate living in a house with central heating, so I guess I half appreciate it as only half the radiators in my house are working. It?s something that could be sorted out by calling out an engineer, but this will involve spending lots of money which is [...]

Weekend spent decorating

I took Friday off work as holiday and instead of going somewhere special or relaxing, I spent the day and the weekend decorating my lounge and realising that I own a huge amount of crap (not literally of course.)
My room is now white and whilst most of the painting has been done, I?ve still got [...]

Cats really are brilliant.

After telling you about Simon the wartime hero cat, there have been more cat-related stories in the news lately:
A cat is baffling his owner by wandering off at night before expecting to be collected by car every morning at exactly the same time and place.

Police at a north London railway station have got mice running [...]

Bike sex man charged.

Has anyone seen this story? From the offset it?s a particularly funny story about a man having sex with his bicycle, which is worth a laugh, but then you find out that he?s been sentanced to 3 years probation and also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for 3 years, which I think is a [...]

Wartime hero cat Simon remembered
