Time to blog me thinks

Crikey! Just noticed that my 3 month time limit is almost up. After that I will be removed from LibDemBlogs for the gross misconduct of not posting. Even marrying Ryan will not save me from this awful fate! There have been times this winter when I have found something remotely interesting to tell you all about but for whatever reason I didn't. Forgetting my blogger password didn't help. One thing I wrote down though (yes I prefer pen and paper, haven't progressed to the digital age yet) was during the snow. I misheard Radio 4:

'Widespread lizards have caused disruption across the country.'

Well I thought it was funny.

Oh to be a magistrate!

Instead of the usual punishments, I think that instead we could sentence our miscreants to the enforced public wearing of garments from this wonderful company. Wouldn't it be far more effective?

I'm lovin' it!

The Local Government Channel that is. A good use of our free broadband, I'm sure you'll agree.

Groom TBA

Whilst browsing the Debenhams Weddings site I found a gift list registered for one rather interesting couple. The bride's name was there but her groom was 'TBA'. I see that girl has her priorities right!!

For today's Random Act of Kindness I did consider finding a couple with a wedding tomorrow who still have things on their list, but I didn't. Sorry.

Meet Dave

UPDATE: 22/08/06
Dave has seemingly moved on. Apologies to the regulars who have been hungry this week. Normal service will be resumed shortly.

This week we have welcomed into our midst a fine example of British history, sadly not Mr Cameron, but a racing pigeon named Dave*. I'm presuming he's a racing pigeon because he has lots of brightly coloured bling and, well, looks like a pigeon. Yesterday the bird feeder came crashing down off the window, presumably because Dave, being not that used to fending for himself, thought he was a Sparrow but then reaslised he was actually quite heavy. This resulted in seed being deposited all over the back yard, which he proceeded to hoover up. A result for Dave.

I'm not sure where his fate lies. If you have any helpful advice on pigeon husbandry or know of any avian social workers pray do tell.

*Not necessarily his/her real name.

Word of the week: sesquipedalian

I am currently reading Attention all shipping: A Journey Round the Shipping Forecast by Charlie Connelly, and stumbled upon this intriguing word on page 4. As a young teenager keen to make my mark in a tough rural girls grammar school I had a 'word of the week' for a short while. Perhaps if I had maintained this strict regime I would have now known the meaning of sesquipedalian and not had to interrupt my reading in order to blog about it.

This week I have been mostly killing...


After last week's episode where I played 'reasonable adult' today I went on a killing spree. Ooooh sweet revenge. In the absence of any propriety insect killers I used Domestos spray, Oust and Pledge. My membership of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust may be revoked but at least my house is now clean!

Youngest Group Leader?

There is rumour that I may be the youngest Lib Dem group leader. I am 25 1/2. The other half of the group is a whole 8 weeks younger than me. Does that make us the youngest council group too?

If you know of any younger please let me know.

Clean streets

It's election day and the street cleaners are out in the most marginal Labour - Lib Dem ward in Labour controlled Lincoln. Me, sceptical? Never!

Moray Foray

So, another by election. Moray is indeed a lovely place, an ideal retreat from city life. Very tempted...
