Hey Little Magpie Blog Post for June

Over on the Hey Little Magpie now - my blog post for June . If you like turquoise , I hope you'll like these.

A little teaser to tempt you over.

Calorie free treats

They look so good I could eat them.

I just ordered from Hey Little Magpie's site - couldn't resist at £2.99 a pop. What I love about their sale is that there's none of that up to ( in tiny print) 50% off - all of their sale items are at least 50%.

I love these Hero Arts Shadow Inks but only had a couple - time to remedy that by expanding my collection. My ink collection is complete ... for now .

Alien Exam Boards

Beginning to wonder if the people at the exam board OCR are really human ?

This morning's Physics GCSE paper bypassed most of the topics that might have proved useful and interesting to our future scientists.... Red Shift, Lunar and Solar Eclipses, the debate on the size of the universe, how to interpret ray diagrams ... and chose instead to ask about the relative merits of establishing contact with alien life form. Yes , that is what they asked.

I've got it ... the question setters at OCR have been invaded by aliens from outer space !

Summertime .... and the weather is ....

..... freezing . Caught eldest teen putting the heating on the other day - don't blame him.

In anticipation of warmer weather I treated myself to a new bike . Oh my , I'm in love with it .

This may have something to do with its delicious mint ice cream colour or possibly the stylish leather saddle or even just the fact that its a joy to ride. I can see myself peddling through Bushy Park on a regular basis just to take it on a little outing. Beats walking a dog and I won't have to bag up any droppings - what's not to like ?
