1hr 45mins Most phones have the ability to check your screen time. Some break it down into how you’ve used that time, including the difference between ‘productive’ time and the other sort of time. The black hole of the internet that is social media. Today I spent 1hour and 45 minutes of the 24 hours … Continue reading I don’t have the chuffing time!
One of them realised that the dog had 6 nipples, and looked thoughtful. I hurriedly put the dog out of harm's way and suggested toast. With jar jam....
The recent kerfuffle over Stormzy Vs Mozart is testament to a generation of people panicking that society is going to hell in a handcrafted, heritage reed handbasket.

Across the UK, crafters, makers and local producers are busy building stock for the flurry of Autumn craft fairs and farmers markets that mark the countdown to Christmas.
