Day Of The Night Flowering Triffid?

Actually it's a so-called house cactus growing in my garden, that I just happen to take a picture of at around 9.30 last night. I rather liked the look of it and thought you might too...

In The News

As joyous as recent news has been, am I the only finding the media coverage of the Royal baby just a little bit excessive?

Can I also suggest Prince Cuthbert would be a really good name for the little fellow? Can't quite see that happening though...

Born To Be Wild

Shush... Don't tell his Mum LOL.

(This is my Razor MX500 electric bike- I think someone has designs on it, don't you?)

Cousins At War

Am really enjoying BBC One's Sunday night series The White Queen, an adaption of Philippa Gregory's novels about the Wars of the Roses.

I suspect I really should brush up on my history though; took me a while to realise one of the characters depicted would become King Richard III. D'oh!

Got a whole bunch of these growing in my garden...

Enjoying summer!

Like many I have a few pet hates.

One dislike is when going out for a meal either in a group of men only or as a mixed group: why do the waiting staff feel compelled to be a bit overly familiar and address us as "guys"? It just gets my goat.

Am I sounding terribly prim and British LOL?
