The crazy lady and an accordian

We had a very bizarre cup of coffee in Tesco today. When we arrived all seemed normal, but we had unwittingly sat between a crazy lady and her granddaughter and an accordion player, who didn't seem to speak English.

As we sat there, the lady came over and asked the accordionist to play her tune. She kept going on about how she loved the accordion, and just don't see them nowadays. So he started playing. He managed to get 30 seconds in when the Costa coffee lady, told him off.

Phew, randomness over... or so we thought. Crazy lady then asked me to put her granddaughter in her pram. I think I'm too polite. I put the little girls fleece on and then she climbed into the pushchair all be herself. The lady then thanked me for helping.

Happy New Year

We had a brilliant New Years Eve. We spent the evening with Andy and Julia and friends. Jacob had other children to play with, so he was happy and went to bed no trouble. We could have a couple of drinks chat to friends and see in the New Year. Best Wishes to everyone in 2009.

Not really catching up

As it's the 1st January, It's not particuarly impressive that I'm only upto 13th December. I'm going to have a good go before I go back to work on Tuesday!


I've got really behind uploading my postcards. Most of these are swap-bot but the bottom three are Postcrossing postcards. I've put them in swap order...
