Book of the Month Club

Welcome to the book of the month club. It is not called that because there is a book coming every month, it is called that because it is how long it took me to write it. It took me two weeks to live it and two and a half to write it. Once I started […]

Pilates Have Nothing On Ceiling Fans!

The kitchen project continues, and yes, I am aware that it started in November. It took a week after our return for Honey to get out of ‘holiday mode’, and back into ‘home reno’ mode again. The countertop has been templated and arrives in 15 days (professional installation). To Honey’s relief her new cupboards passed […]

I usually only take holidays once a year. The rest of my year is spent on the job with my only time off being weekends. A weekend is not exactly the same as a holiday because it is just a short period of time and I never really get into the spirit of being away […]

The clock ticks ever closer to my escape to the beaches of the Dominican Republic. This year will mark the third meeting of The Los Gringos Refugee Club and the first reunion of the victorious forces from The Siege at Los Gringos, as not only will Ginger and The Earl be there but Rock and […]
