  • Happy New 2016!

    Well hello Perusites! How the devil are you? Did you have great festivities since we last spoke? It’s madness and mayhem here, courtesy of Reg, our new dog. He’s cute as anything, but it’s a bit like having a toddler in the house. When he’s noisy he’s up to no good, and when it’s quiet I’m suspicious! So, back to the business in hand. Two new delicious…

  • I’m Back!

    Hello folks, did you miss me? I’m just back after a fab three weeks in New Zealand, which was stunning but a tad on the chilly side… and coming back to England in November has been a bit of a surprise! As hopefully you can tell, the site is now optimised for all the little gadgetty knickknacks that one is forced to carry round these days, so do have a browse and see what you can find!…

  • OH NO!

    Apparently, my website has been bouncing people off when they tried to pay, and telling them that they didn’t know where they lived! I’m so sorry! It’s fixed, I promise! There’s still time to shop for Christmas, and I’m turning parcels around on a same-day basis at the mo! To cheer you from your fury with things technological, here’s a happy elf to brighten…

  • Crazy Christmas Shenanigans!

    Well hi! It would appear Christmas shopping fever is upon us! I barely have time to unload a delivery at the moment before it gets snapped up by hungry shoppers – so apologies for the silence this end – I promise to get new photographs on this week, honest! This last weekend I held my Open House event – I thought you might like to see a picture of a shy, but very happy customer…

  • Hot heads!

    I think hats are very much a personal taste thing. I know which hats suit me – I like brim hats (Beautiful pictures benefit from good framing, girls!) and I like pull-on hats. I’m not the right person for those ear-flap ones though – I look a bit like a bassett hound in ’em. Rachel, however, looks great in hats. And that’s why I borrow her head to show them to you.…

  • Sunshine and Sloopers!

    Isn’t it hot! Who would have thought we’d be sitting in the garden airing our wobbly bits at this time of year! Someone told me we’re getting snow in October – that’s the day after tomorrow in my calendar, so I’m making the most of the heat! Well it’s been a while since I wittered at you – and no wonder – busy, busy, busy this end! Lots of…

  • Slipper Season Approaches!

      Well it seems a while since we chatted last. Autumn’s on it’s way – don’t you love September? My garden is so full of fat fruit I’ve run out of jamjars – as have my friends and neighbours! We’ll be eating jam and jellies until 2020 at this rate! Yesterday I took the poochie and her pals for a walk (swim!) by the river. It was glorious sunshine.…

  • What do you buy for the man who has everything?

    It’s my Dad’s birthday in a week. He’ll be 85. I got the usual text from my sis this morning… “what are you getting Dad for his bd?” It reminds me of that old joke – what do you buy for a man that has everything? Penicillin. This year I’m sorted. Have been since Guildford festival – but I’m not telling you – he may read this! So…
