47. Home Sweet Home

Crab 1Last Friday was the long awaited UK Blog Awards ‘Ceremony’. As you may or may not know I was selected as one of the eight finalists that entered my particular category.

44. Explaining Rocket Science 101 to my unwanted and uninvited cousin Ed

He replied when do you need it by. Over to you Dennis….Read More »
