Pics of the week




After a couple of grumpy posts, it's time for something different:




My sister gave me chocolate ginger for my birthday and I somehow managed to demolish most of the box while I babysat for her. No regrets!





I created this for my Instagram, I'm trying to get all sophisticated and fancy because Insta is all about fancy.....and minimal. Hmmm, let's see how that goes.....



Harry featured on Instagram as well. His snooze in the sun was adapted into a post on self care.  It's amazing what random stuff I manage to relate to the business. I posted this one in B&W to keep it simple.



I don't know what this is about, I just thought it looked interesting and it might come in handy one day....



Just for a lark I put this on ebay. It's a "Genuine Vintage 1992 Tee" It should be quite valuable!

  1. The smaller portion is a chocolate ginger fan. Not me.
    Wouldn't it be lovely to be able to 'lax as well as a dog (or cat).
    Smiling at your Genuine Vintage Tee. Will you still know us when you become rich?
    Love the Maya Angelou quote. The world was diminished by her passing (but richer for having had her in it).

    1. Chocolate ginger is one of my favourite things in all the world! I will certainly remember my friends when I am rich and I just realised the garden picture has a finger in it. I'll try to get another shot tomorrow...
      if I think of it

  2. I don't think I have ever had chocolate ginger but will add it to my list of things to try. I didn't notice a finger in the garden shot and had to scroll up tp find it. Ah the advantages/disadvantages of trying to read/see without my glasses

    1. I'm also at that stage where I kid myself I can do without glasses at times but everything makes more sense when I put them on!
      If you like ginger, you will love chocolate ginger

  3. Happy belated birthday wishes!
    Do you dunk chocolate? I know, sounds like an awful thing to do, but it's really lovely when melted by tea.

    1. Thank you, Ms Scarlet!
      I have never dunked chocolate but I am prepared to learn :)

    2. Embrace the dunking, Graham, you know you want to!

  4. My father loved ginger, couldn't get enough of it, but I only like it in small quantities as a flavouring. And not in chocolate!

    Perhaps you could auction the vintage tee? Guide price £5,000?

    1. I love ginger every way: in chocolate, in curry, as a tea, in a gingernut, gingerbread....

      And, Nick opens the bidding at 1000 pounds

  5. Sorry, if I had a spare thousand pounds (or dollars) it would go on travel or a painting. I'll make do with non-vintage tee shirts from a chain store.

  6. I thought Dark Chocolate Ginger was a Jamaican porn star.

    2. It’s not safe with me though.

  7. You would get good response if you described the t-shirt as a holy shirt.

  8. Dark chocolate ginger and dark chocolate peppermint. Heaven. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on the point of view) as a chocoholic in my eighteenth year of recovery I no longer even crave more than my self-imposed ration of one piece with a cup of coffee.

  9. Happy belated Birthday! Sorry I missed it. I hope you had a good one.

    I never considered dark chocolate and ginger together, but it sounds good! Maybe I'll get an opportunity to try it soon.

    1. You must try it but don't blame me when you get addicted :)

  10. Happy belated birthday!

    Okay well I'm not a fan of dark chocolate or ginger so your chocolate is safe around me. Mind you it sounds like it didn't last long anyway. :D

  11. I thought I posted a belated Happy /birthday! So, here it is. I have never heard of ginger dark chocolate. I am not a fan of peppermint chocolate or any kind of peppermint.

    1. Thanks for the birthday wishes!
      Maybe chocolate ginger is an Australian thing?

  12. I love the picture of Harry in his . . . nightshirt perhaps? :)

    And have you see this?

    1. That's Harry's t-shirt that starts as a night shirt and becomes a 24 hour shirt as the weather cools. He also has a couple of coats.

      Those "jeans" are ridiculous!
      They are so totally stupid I shouldn't comment further but I will anyway: there's not much I hate more than to see the pockets hanging out of cut offs and to make those jeans with the structure they have is going to waste so much fabric it should be illegal.

  13. The dark ginger does look like it's worth throwing care to the winds for.

    1. You know, the way I see it, I'm going to eat a box of chocolate ginger so I can eat it in a couple of sittings or across weeks but it's still a box of chocolate ginger!
      And it's delicious
