My scales are clearly broken.

I waddled to the scales this morning. Eyes half shut I climbed on, yawning. The numbers climbed extremely high. I really can’t imagine why? In fact it gave me quite a scare To see such numbers flashing there. Perhaps, as far as I can tell. A hippo had climbed on as well? It left me… Continue reading My scales are clearly broken.

We all know that Santa’s a popular man! So our job as a parent’s to help where we can. There’s only so much he can fit in that sack. “But don’t worry Santa, we’ve all got your back!” We know that he’ll manage a present or two, But we’re always quite happy to buy a… Continue reading “It’s OK Santa, we’ve got this!”

Now just for the record, before I say more, I know 14 hours is hardly a chore. My… Continue reading Popping in to work for a rest…
