New Family Members….

I love tech, and I have been mulling over getting an Amazon Echo for quite some time, and this week I took the plunge.  Not one, but two Echo Dot’s, but it didn’t stop there, I decided to go further and get Hue smart lighting too.  I can now control my lighting through voice, mobile…

Books galore..

I have quite literally thousands of books, and this is no exaggeration.  I have been collecting books all my adult life.  I have bought books that I have never read, and may never get to read, but I am determined to try. Inspired by another blogger Chronical Of Ellen, I have decided to list some books…

To Hot to Drop Stitches

New Project

I love to knit large project, and if complicated then all the better.  So my latest project, although not really complicated, it will be large.  My Mum had given me tonnes of her yarn stash, stuff she decided she would not need or use.  Among the stash was lots of packs of yarn of the…
