    Awesome! I genuinely think a raccoon in shorts would have a better chance of mastering this than I would.

    Well I’d rather you have it than me, you see. I’m generous like that 😉

  • Jacob commented on the post, Just One Bite 6 days, 13 hours ago

    How cute! I probably wouldn’t even care if a squirrel came and helped itself to the garden. They are just too darn adorable!

    Yes, it’s hard to be particularly optimistic at the moment – for various reasons – and that does draw us back to the known and the constants. You have the rest of your trio, and I daresay countless people have had you…[Read more]

    Haha, well you certainly nailed the expression. This dog is in a happy place, that’s for sure! It has been a stressful working week for me too, and I’ve been brilliantly productive… at procrastinating. Ugh, so much to do! Like yesterday, I tend to listen to music (obligatory Carpenters namecheck!) or play games when stressed. If you pick the…[Read more]

    Always a fan of the fair, even if I’m too chicken to go on most of the rides. The atmosphere is so magical, I’d even suffer the crowds for it! I did laugh at the thought of Philippe’s reaction to the cuisine. It is an acquired taste. Candyfloss (or cotton candy) is fun in small doses, though probably more nostalgia than it actually tasting nice.…[Read more]

  • Aww! That’s a funky backpack, too. Mine were never that colourful!

    It was a bit of a bummer having to go back after summer, but I did enjoy shopping for fresh supplies. My highlights were a Chewits pencil case and a wooden ruler with kings and queens of England listed on the back. Good for History! 😉 I loved first and middle school, but high…[Read more]

    Ooh I do love the green decor! Apparently when my parents moved into their house in 1976, every room was a different (but equally garish) colour. Gotta love it. As a 90s child, I sometimes think the same about society peaking; we had so much of the technology we enjoy today but it hadn’t taken over our lives yet. But I guess we are all biased…[Read more]

    I love the chicken standing tall at the front. The pig might think he’s in the driver’s seat, but his rooster friend surely has other ideas. Ah, tractors. Nothing enrages Norfolk motorists (my father) more than being stuck behind one! But they do look kinda fun.

  • Jacob commented on the post, Time To Work Out 3 weeks, 6 days ago

    Yes, I suppose! More than once I considered cutting it myself but thought better of it.

  • Jacob commented on the post, Time To Work Out 4 weeks ago

    They are adorable! I wouldn’t mind a big hamster wheel to run in, honestly – I used to quite enjoy the treadmills, exercise bikes and rowing machines. The weight lifting was where they lost me.

    I had my hair cut last week for the first time since the beginning of March. It had become pretty unruly in that time, so it was the most satisfying…[Read more]

    It can make you emotional. The worst part for me is when it’s your turn next and you know it’s ready to fall, but somehow the person before you gets away with it. How!?!? Grrr! Honestly, the more I think about it, the more I’m surprised it’s not already on TV!

  • Jacob commented on the post, Tower Of Blocks 1 month ago

    Haha, that’s awesome. Our cats had a habit of ‘joining in’ with most of the games we played, and I can imagine that turning out quite badly with Jenga. It really is ridiculously tense and dramatic – I’ve long thought you could turn the blocks into bundles of cash, add some scary music and have a hit game show. I’d watch Million Dollar Jenga!

  • Jacob commented on the post, Creative Tools 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Adorable! Haha, people are the same with me and ‘proper’ tools funnily enough. I can’t say I blame them; I panic when I have to use a screwdriver, never mind anything else. I’m just waiting for things to go Mr. Bean levels of wrong!

  • If it’s as warm where he is as it has been here lately, he probably won’t mind!

  • Cool pelican! He’ll be even cooler if he gets hit by those waves!

  • You certainly should demand a bridge. The pet zonkey will need a way to cross!

  • Oh, I adore those bridges too! When my parents were putting the garden pond together, almost twenty years ago, I remember asking if there was going to be a little bridge. Alas, there was not. But it was cool enough that I quickly got over it. Yay for crossing the bridge of the week and reaching the pizza!

    I knew you’d have it covered!

  • Jacob commented on the post, Northern Lights 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Well, I think you certainly captured the magic of this natural phenomenon – and the aurora too! Totally charming. Ever considered Doodlewash greeting cards? 😉

  • Happy Birthday to you, Charlie! Eat as much ice cream as you want, and there better be some cake coming – it’s the highlight of the day for me!
