A Quiet New Year in a Smart House

Well, we’re 10 days into 2022 and I’ve yet to write a blog post. New Years is usually quiet for us, but this is ridiculous! There just hasn’t really been anything exciting happening. New Year The New year was a quiet one for us. Anna and I went for a stroll around Furnace a couple...

Stretching the Weekend

Having worked additional hours on Wednesday and Thursday I’d hope to finish early on Friday thereby stretching out the weekend a little. As is often the case things cropped up at work and I ended up staying there until later than usual anyway. So much for my plans! Not to worry though we still managed...

The January Doldrums

I’ve been trying to think of things to add to the blog over the past week or so, but we just haven’t been up to much really. I guess it’s just the January Doldrums. It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s miserable and more often than not it’s dark outside. We’re back at work, Christmas seems as...

A Wet Windy Weekend in Wales

Another wet and very windy weekend here in West Wales. We¬†don’t let that stop us though. A good Spring clean (even though its Winter) early on Saturday morning without waking Anna and Morgan meant that the house was ready for the Christmas decorations to go up. It’s surprising what you find under the sofa though!...
