The cheek of it! I went out to my car this morning and found a card under my wiper. It said "cash offered for old cars" well - my car is far from crash material. Alright I know it is over 10 years old but I love my little silver car.

What is it with spiders and our house?! There are cobwebs appearing all the time and as fast as I dust them away they appear. I have dusters all around the house, big one, little ones, flat one (to go behind things) and I am still not winning.

Their occupants are of course all over the house as well.

Last night I opened the door from the kitchen into the hall and there in front of me was this HUGE spider - you know the type that has knees. We stared at each other for a while - me like a rabbit in the headlights - and then I slammed the door and shouted for Geoffrey to come and catch it. Of course when he opened the door again it had gone to ground.

So I am nervously and slowly going down the hall now!

I grew up with two sisters and a father that had no interest in sport so the ins and outs of rugby, football, motor racing etc. leaves me cold!

As the World knows the Rugby World Cup is on at the moment so Geoffrey is sat in front of the television - ok. But I had not factored in the Grand Prix - bored bored bored!


Our patio door has been sticking on its runners and it was very difficult to open and close it. Yesterday I got it fixed and it is now flying open. Geoffrey was out for the day doing his extra bit. I was sorely tempted to keep quiet and sit back and watch him discovering our "new" door but realised that if he tackled it as we have been doing it might get damaged - so I was a good girl and told him before he opened it!

Sense comes with age!

Geoffrey went out for his usual walk yesterday and I settled down to draw. I suddenly became aware that it was raining heavily so rang Geoffrey and asked if he was able to shelter or if he wanted me to pick him up. He been caught on the road above our house where there is no shelter so I set off in my car as quickly as I could.

I picked him up, drove back and parked outside our house but when I got out of the car I noticed that I had a puncture in one of my tyres - so much for doing my good deed for the day - I know by just looking at it that I will need a new tyre - ho hum
