Is there one in your fridge?

Is there a purple codex in your wardrobe?

There is a new Chinese shop in town. I came home with Egyptian cotton, a bag of marbles, some silk thread and a new doggy basket for Arthur and two boxes of threadable dice and beads. Magic!
Went food shopping with Alice who used to be Frank. Her brand new grandson is visiting this weekend. I suddenly realised the only baby I have ever held in my life was my daughter...which is quite odd when I think about it.

The group is learning the theme tune to "The Godfather". Raul, who used to be in charge of organising fiestas but now redundant, is doing the tremelo bit. I'm saddled with the melody which will be fine once I work out where all those notes are at the eleventh fret. Get me above fret seven and I'm lost. Visually, we do not really resemble a dangerous, brooding bunch of Mafiosos, except maybe Raul. He often looks broody but that's because he is a rock and roller inside.

The invisible wife next door is cracking.

Chorizo Fairy

I don't know where this stuff comes from either. Probably best not to worry about it but it's always fun to come across a folder I have not looked at for ages. What made me do this? Quite possibly Gordon Ramsey or a Nigella Lawson who amongst others can never actually pronounce chorizo correctly...choreethoh.....

New workmen up the road armed with chainsawsZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ does it never end?

The 4 stages of fear.

I read this brilliant article today and I was literally on the edge of the seat all the way through. Here's the link.

The hot water heater has blown out and guess what? I cannot relight it. Paco is out of town and Alice who used to be Frank doesn't understand butano heaters because hers is electric. One day I will live somewhere with concert halls, and electricity that doesn't go off when it thunders.
The invisible wife next door came round to borrow the phone. She is thinking about opening a restaurant in the next town. I don't see how she is going to do this being invisible.
