Dear Diary I'm still unpacking my house, as you know, and I think I'm in the home stretch. Other than a few half full boxes, essentially everything is where it belongs. Except my pictures. I haven't hung one since I moved in. I think I've been trying to get a good feel for where...
Dear Diary I'm pretty sure you've heard me mention it once or twice recently, but I bought a new house last month. Well it's not new but new to me. Now that I'm more or less settled in, I only have about 15 (YES I STILL HAVE 15 LEFT) boxes to unpack but I've mainly hidden them...
Dear Diary I recently moved into a new house, which is great. But it's very different from my old house. I've got trees now, (that like to fall on my roof), lots of wildlife, (that my dog likes to escape the yard to chase) no garage, (which means my car is constantly covered in...

Dear Diary Remember back a few months when Niece Denise was staying with me? We had a lot of fun and it was nice to have a girl around who likes getting mani/pedis and going shopping, as most of my other friends have kids and therefore no freedom. Unfortunately for me, Niece...
Dear Diary A couple of weeks ago I decided that it was time for a change. So i rented a storage POD, hired the help of a painter, threw out a bunch of junk that had accumulated over the ten years I've lived in my house, and began the search for another one. All of the packing,...
Dear Diary When I was home at Christmas I stumbled upon something about my parents that weirded me out at the same time as impressing the hell out of me. My mum and stepdad Greg have been together since I was about 15 or 16 and they moved in together when I was 17. And...
