Yes that’s right!  This is my 300th post since I began blogging on 28th November 2008!  What on earth have I found to blog  about every day?

One Week – A summing up

Well that time has come around yet again.  It’s Saturday evening when I’m typing this, but you’ll be (hopefully) reading this on Sunday, thanks to the scheduling tool.  As usual it’s a quick one as I have to work.  So really just a quick summing up of the week.

Its Time for a Teapot or Two..or Three (again)

I am absolutley FUMING!  I have just typed quite a bit about 3 teapots and they have disappeared!  When I pressed the preview, all I got was the title!  The images had gone, the words had gone and I’m nearly gone (off my head!)  How frustrating is that?  Second try…..

Teapots – A Home for birds? An Excuse for a Party? Or the Watched Kettle which never boils.

    There’s a whole lot of serious teapot here!   This teapot looks like it doubles up as a kettle as well.  It;s got a bit of a billie can feel to it: waltzing Matilda anyone? Absolutely LOVE this Boston Tea Party pot!  (what a swell party that WAS….) It looks like it’s been cobbled togetherContinue reading “Teapots – A Home for birds? An Excuse for a Party?
