Chameleon Feetsies…

Auto correct is a funny thing. I’m pretty sure I wanted this. I wanted a podiatrist clinic open in Cheltenham. When I typed that into the search bar, I was definitely looking for an assortment of clinics down in Cheltenham that deal in podiatry. Or was I?? No, I wasn’t. It’s just that my Chameleon, …

The Oncoming Storm

It’s September. And you know what that means. Christmas. Christmas is upon us. There’s no stopping it, or slowing it. It creeps up on you, taps you on the shoulder, and then BAM. Christmas.  Who’s that creeping around outside, pressing its wild face against the glass, readying a brick to hurl right through the metaphorical …

Irreconcilable Differences

I think this gardening project could spell the end of my marriage. We’re just too different. It’s odd that this is only now coming to light, given that we’ve lived together for 10 years. But that was in an apartment, and there are only so many options for plants to grow on a tiny, dim …

Scruff Guy

Haircuts: why bother? This question has been lodged by my 15 year-old son, and I’m honestly at a loss here. I mean, really – why do we go to all the time and expense, just to keep our locks in order? What’s a bit of ratty outgrowth or a few split ends compared to an …

Driving, Accelerated

Okay, there’s a skeleton here now. I must admit, although I saw many things during the wonderful golden age of Atlantis, a spooky skeleton is not something for which I was prepared. He’s pleasant enough, but he keeps trying to jump out from cupboards before the lesson, yelling “BOO!” and trying to scare people. I …

Question of Necessity

It’s hard enough managing a multinational company without worrying about, say, whether your offices have enough greenery. Still, it seems that this is something we’re supposed to be taking into account nowadays, and failing to do so counts as workplace negligence. Of course, I’m keen to support employee wellbeing, but there’s a line where it’s …

Working? At WORK?

Gary is just the kind of boss this office needed, and I hate it. Sandrine was bad, no doubt about it. Then we had new Sandrine, who I barely count as the same person, and she was too nice. Everyone got what they wanted, but no one really did any work in the end. We …

The Plane Drain

I wouldn’t have thought that plumbing on a boat or ship was very complicated. Pull a lever, it all goes down. You could potentially get away with the same thing on a plane, although you’d have to restrict it to when you’re travelling over the water. But nope. As we enter the second hour of …

The Open Seas

I know I had a, um… sheltered life growing up. Which is to say I wasn’t often allowed outside the house, and was thus pretty sheltered, especially living in that cupboard. But this weekend, I finally did something I’d wanted to do since I was a child: I went on a boat. Yep. I’d never …

That’ll Do, Car

Cars are just everywhere in games nowadays. Cars and cameras. Every single video game is giving you the ability to take photographs at any time, and they’re also providing you with a car right off the bat so you can explore one of a gajillion open worlds, which aren’t getting old at all.  Personally I …
