My Amazon Christmas: I LOVED it!

This Christmas was an usual one. It wasn’t traditional in any sense because we moved house on the 15th of December.

MyHomeContents: One of my new projects

A year ago my friend’s mother had a really bad day. She got home from work one day to find the whole family house turned upside down. They’d been burgled. The burglars had been rather smart too.

Here we go again. Broken record time. 1145pm and I have just remembered about my T-Mobile account. The other one. The poor black sheep account. The one that’s ALWAYS broken and that won’t ever go on direct debit. Because there’s always a few pence balance. Or T-Mobile’s SHITE system won’t take my credit card or […]
