Mission: Declutter

Hello, dear reader!

It’s actually me again - the lovely wifey.

The last few weeks have been busy in the Rankin household - and for once, I have actually coped with the said business pretty well. After our garden clear-out, and 6 spanking brand new windows, our house looks completely different, and it feels different too. Let me explain.

A Window On The World

Hello, dear reader!

And it’s all go at the Rankin household.

Yes, very much like the proverbial buses, you wait around for ages and two busy days come along at once.

Which is nice.

Some of you poor, long suffering souls will recall that, a couple of weeks ago, I was bemoaning the lack of subject matter upon which to write, but this week the opposite is in effect. This week, I have subject matter aplenty, the corollary being that as a result I’m slightly lacking in the mental reserves to do it much justice. A swings and roundabouts type situation which is increasingly usual.

The Worst Seats In The House

Hello, dear reader!

Hot enough for you?

Yes, it would appear that summer has landed. Those few brief weeks of actual decent weather we, in these British Isles, tend to celebrate by complaining how hot it is.

And so, before the day becomes too melt-y, I’m taking advantage of the relatively early morn, a nice breeze, a pot of coffee, and a comfy seat on the couch to put down a few words of mild complaint.

Because, not all seats are quite as comfy.

Moth Balls

Hello, dear reader!

I’ve said it before. No doubt I’ll say it again. This time, however, I really do mean it.

It’s going to be a short one today.
