Sunbathing Ted…

Well, I’ve been working from early this morning with the first call at 7.30am. Claire is now at school and I was joined by Ted giving me some support in the kitchen. Well support can be defined as sunbathing with one eye closed… Also not updated the blog in a while, with Facebook taking precedent [...]

A jolly fine day in which to be working in the Bat Cave…

Well it is sunny outside and Claire is painting, and I am in the Bat Cave working. Mostly because I have to, and also because the sun reflects off the laptop. Running your own business certainly has challenges in terms of managing workload… Tweet

Well a lot has happened since the last post…

Yes it is cold and frozen today – minus 2.5 degrees Celsius in Mossley to be exact.

Well I walked Ted the dog along the canal this morning at Uppermill, and the tow paths are frozen solid – enter one skating Cobley in welliebobs and one skating four legged hound. But we made it to the Lime Kiln for coffee, and two snorkers for Tedley… Tweet
