Where the weather is always mercurial.

Spring has finally sprung here on Planetniles; Cooj (my partner) and I spent the day finishing off cleaning our flat. It's now gleaming. So much so that I'm resisting the urge to throw stuff around to make it feel lived in.

That's only part one of the good news. Part two is that we had a vist from the housing officer who had a look around, ticked all the nice boxes on her form and put us back on the housing list. We're once more up for a move to a bigger and better flat. WHOOP! & HOODY frikin' HOO!!!!!

That is all; carry on.

Play? D'oh!

I learnt to make Playdough today; alas the daughter is utterly unimpressed. The recipe is as follows:

2 cups of plain flour
1 cup of salt
2 teaspoons of cream of tartar
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
2 cups of water
Food Colouring.

Mix everything together in a non-stick pan and stir over a gentle heat, keep stirring until it all comes together. It forms a solid dough. Turn out of the pan and knead. Your playdough is now ready. Store in a sealed bag or container in the fridge.

On other news nothing much is happening although it looks like I'm going to be designing and running a LC (Live Combat) style LARP (Live Action Role Playing). Wish me luck...

I feel really crappy today.

Nothing else to report; move along.

Hello, Greetings and Welcome.

This is my blog; is it not keeness?

This is my egotistical "look I'm a person too" type blog rather than my "haha ain't I funny " blog.

Okay, about me: I'm a thirty something father of one with another on its way. I usually moderate the Fortean Times message boards but I'm currently on extended holiday. Hence my blogging. My spare time is typically spent writing or playing RPG's. I hog the computer much to my partner's distress...

...So I better log off.
