I do not personally climb – I am not a fan of heights
So – to fit today’s prompt ‘climbing’ – I went another way
I like climbing plants – we have a lot of ivy on our house – and the occasional bit of clematis – but I got climber envy when out on a walk recently
There is a pretty old house in Spalding, by the river, and it had this beautiful wisteria across the front
Walking near Spalding, Lincolnshire.
We started by the river, passed through a housing estate, along the side of a cemetery, and out to a nature reserve.
A surprising little area caught between the hospital and an industrial estate.
Totally clean – my kitchen is totally clean
The surfaces, the floor, the cupboard doors
They are clean
At no point did having the kitchen repainted make me think anything else
Beautiful, fresh, primrose walls do not make everything else look even remotely grubby
Totally Clean = FACT
… ever invented
The pause button
First on VCR, then DvD, then live TV
I was born in the 60s – if we wanted to watch something on TV then the BBC (or occasionally ITV) decided when – they were also deciding what
Then channel 4, 5, and Sky etc came along and we. at least. had choice
But even better than that – the chance to record – and EVEN BETTER still – the chance to pause
We are in control – at last
… between a crocodile and an alligator
One will see you in a while, the other will see you later 🙂
How much is a fortune?
I watch quiz shows and hear people describe the potential winnings as ‘life changing’.
I often wonder what that means – how could £25k, for example, be life changing – it won’t clear the mortgage – it won’t stop me from working – maybe it would provide us with 5 really nice holidays – but how would it be life changing?
So – I would want £200k to clear the mortgage and other debts – plus an income of about £60k for a reasonable life style (nothing special) – so I need about £3.5 million – if it is to be really life changing.
I guess £1 million would make a serious difference – I guess £100k would give me some nice options.
I suppose that a fortune means different things to different people – I imagine that my £3.5 million would be peanuts for some.
Lovely day here in Northamptonshire – cold but sunny and dry
One of the best features of the county is the Grand Union Canal and – here at Stoke Bruene a family or couple can walk and chill, eat and shop, visit the little museum and gaze into the tunnel
Ideal spring outing
