They make cute magnets too.

All you need are these things:

It appears I have a thing for making magnets. Oh well, better that than cocaine I suppose.

The photo at top is me as a little tacker with one of our succession of beloved labradors. Owners of dogs will be familiar with the “Flat-eared I’m not enjoying this and I will not deign to look at you” face that Alistair is sporting. Perhaps that’s where the expression “hang dog face” comes from?

Yep, that’s us almost 12 years ago on our wedding day in Bali.  Some of those flower petals went down my cleavage and the lining of that top is still stained pink and red in places. Not that I wear my wedding dress that often any more. Mainly just to pick up the kids from school these days really. Oh, and during the summer solstice of course. Same as everyone really.

In truth, these days one would struggle to fit oneself in that dress. Bloody child birthing. Yep, I’m blaming the whole thing on my kids.
