Pie watching on the Denby Dale.


So ratty has fallen for my cunning plan and is currently munching his way through copious amounts of poison – him and his band of brothers. Yep there is definitely more than one. But time is running out for the ‘furry few’ the cement is on it’s way. Start running ratty!!

Sadly no running for me, the niggle is getting worse and I can’t really understand why. For once I’ve been good and done what my physio said – sort of and yet the pain and noise is getting worse. I’m sort of hoping that it’s because I haven’t cycled this week, maybe that’s been helping my recovery. I do know that I’m started to get really naffed out with it – I haven’t got time for this injury malarkey!!

Still no running means time for tidying – oh joy. Yep the now repaired hoover has all but finished and normality nearly reigns in the Earnshaw household. Even managed to fit the ‘Asda Big shop’ in and a spot of pie watching………No we really did. Our local garden centre (Hampsons on Denby Dale Road) where we sometimes go for breakfast, keeps changing the things it does. In fact, thinking about it, it doesn’t actually sell much gardening stuff anymore. There’s the florist, bakery, delicatessen, fruit and veg stall, pet shop, knock-off out-off-date food and drink section (it’s well dodgy) pet store and a few plants. Newly launched this week and replacing the carvery – which was a fail – is the pie making factory complete with viewing area – you can spy on the pie……………….What will they come up with next!!

Last day of the holidays

I’m sure I’m due a rest

Bring it on


The Return of the Rat

So my blitzing the house plans came to a bit of a halt today – a rat sized halt. Yep, Roland’s relatives are back. I did wonder why poor Fluff (the family guinea pig) didn’t seem very happy. Now I know why. Thankfully I didn’t find the rat, he pounced on my electrician (thanks Ryan) who was sorting the outside security light out – no more disco lights when it’s windy now. Anyway back to the rat -seemingly he shot out of the cage across the patio and down the old drainage system from the outside toilet-it’s getting filled in with cement at the weekend-the pipe not the rat. In the meantime Fluff’s moved back in to the kitchen and I’ve chucked two tonne of rat poison outside if that fails I’m sending for the Pied Piper.

Thankfully I still had time for a mini blitz and there’s just the hoovering to do tomorrow (I’ve mended it) and I’ve done. Just in time for the last day of half term and there’s me thinking I’m on holiday. How many weeks until the christmas holiday………….

Job list nearly finished

A couple of hours free time tomorrow

bring it on.
