Ball Pit

Morgans largest birthday present was a bouncy castle complete with ball pit. The castle itself is a little too large for indoor use, but the ball pit just about fits in the spare room. We now have around 500 balls and Morgan seems to enjoy himself in it. Of course, he is just as happy...

Garden Wildlife

Last week while my parents were here we decided to get a bird table! We had been meaning to do so for a while as Morgan likes to watch the birds out of the window, and we quite like it too. Most were too expensive, but thanks to ‘cheap charlies’ we found one in our...

One of those days

Actually, it has been one of those weeks really. I’ve been suffering all week with yet another flu type bug so I haven’t managed to get much work done resulting not only in a bit of a back-log but also little income. On top of which I had to buy a new computer (Dual Core...

Once again I’ve had to call on my mechanic brother, Brad to help me out. All my education and yet it still seems to be me calling on him for help and advice more often than him calling on me. I always new there would be little call for my training as a carbonate sedimentologist...

Death of an Apple Powerbook

Grrrrr….. My nice shiny 15″ 1.5Ghz Apple Powerbook has blown up… It is less than 2 years old, cost me close to £2,000 and has been treated very gently, but the logic board is fried and it looks as though a repair is going to cost as much as buying a new machine.. I’m not...

Snow in West Wales

Wooohooo, what a couple of days, loads of snow here in West Wales and I’ve managed to get the days off to head out and play in it! Amazing how the snow changes the scenery, things usually look pretty spectacular in the hills around here but with snow on them they are just amazing. It...

Happy Birthday!

It’s hard to believe it but Saturday was Morgan’s First Birthday. I’m not sure where the last year has gone to but it has gone somewhere and Morgan is no longer the little helpless baby we brought home from hospital. He’s a lovely active one year old, just learning to walk and attempting his first...
