White good shopping

Well it had to happen we went shopping and replaced the items that had died.  I now have an upside down fridge, which is bigger and so much better.  Peter has a new washing machine which is also a lot bigger at 8kgs, maybe one day I will learn how to use it :). Nice […]


Today all of the furniture, cats and us moved.  It was a pretty traumatic day for the cats.  Imagine one minute you are gathered up and placed in a small cramped bathroom, while in there you hear strange voices and lots of loud noises.  It seems liek hours, it actually is hours as your owners […]

When we bought the […]

How much can a ladder cost?

I got the day off work today and we went shopping.  It was a pretty miserable sort of day if you are someone who does not like rain, but as I like rain I though the day was great. Highlights of the day The potato scallops from the service station at Silkwood, they were very […]
