Take it the Max

Take it the MaxIn all the years we have been here, I do not believe that I have ever before properly succumbed to a viral attack. This is evidenced by today’s foray into the medicine cabinet. Not one cold remedy in there that did not expire before the end of 2005! (we moved here in September 2006)

Am thinking of renaming the winter challenge as “Indoors if wet, or if ailing” Today qualifies on all counts.

We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
