A Sunday Roast

Today and tomorrow I am working,
 as it is my turn on shift
this Easter 

The Museum doesn't close often, it is open 24/7
only closing on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

So suck it up Saz! 

So whilst the family are sucking up their chocolate and 
perhaps tidying the house and garden, I jest of course,
I am helping visitors around the museum 
and time is probably passing very slowly.

My day often begins well
 with an abundance of goodwill and happiness
 through the bounty of bloggers 

In particular this week's
 Sunday Roast feature 
 in David Authorblog McMahon's  blog.

I was honoured that David asked to interview me 
a short while ago for this feature 
 I am a little wary as I hardly recall 'what I writ'!

So if you go to  visit  please be gentle with me!


  1. sorry you are working, hide some chocolate for yourself for later!

  2. Wooooooooooowwwwwwwwwww! I am of there now - I hope you enjoy work this weekend, Saz, and that your guests and visitors are good to you! xox

  3. I enjoyed reading the roast immensely! :-)

    Thank you for mentioning my blog,
    I feel truly honoured.

    I hope that you find some quiet moment for yourself and a chocolate egg or two. Happy Easter! :-)

  4. Congrats! Very nice interview.
    Hope you have some nice family time for Easter.

  5. I enjoyed your interview today!

  6. You'll be avoiding all the headaches of hiding and then finding chocolates. They'll miss you.

  11. I hope that you had a splendid Easter even though you had to work Saz and I hope that you got lots of Cadbury eggs.....

  13. Follower number 100 saying 'hi'. (That should cheer you up after a shift at the museum!)

    Your bum will be sad to miss out on the chocolate munching.
    Mine has grown with delight due to the abundance.

    best wishes Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
