He has spent most of the day exploring his cage, and yelling when he falls off the perch, which happens more often than you would expect. Tashy […]

santa is feeling the strain …

Ohhhhhh, cake forks to die for. Now, I tipped the box upside down and shook it vigorously, but no accompanying cake fell out! Maybe he had afternoon tea on the way, and he and the reindeer shared the cake, do you think? Oh, you were wondering what was in the pink bag? Wonder no longer […]

[Credits: Ribbon from Small Packages – Ribbons 2, by [ksharonkdesigns]. Font: Cocaine Sans, Arial.] I’m not a big Christmas decorator … Megan will attest to this.

and i just start pedaling …

[Credits: Template by Kate Teague. Font: DJB Mandy.] Yes, I’m still pedaling flat out … the days are long and busy as I try to get everything finished, and some of it seems pretty ridiculous. For example, today I had to get a small fridge out of the library and onto the front steps, with […]

birthday project …

I am making up an album for the boy’s 16th birthday, which is coming up very quickly. I did the same sort of thing for the girl, and made up a lovely ‘k memories’ album for her. This time I thought I would try a book for the boy, with a dust jacket even. So […]
