Since we last spoke about that all around family favourite………YES I DO MEAN BACON!

So what’s new & exciting from the pan-land of fine breakfast meat?

How about some Bacon-flavoured Jelly Beans (decoratively stored in a bacon-shaped collector’s tin):


As an après diner, clean your teeth with Bacon-flavoured dental floss:


After a good night’s sleep, awake to the fine taste of bacon in the morning, (while relaxing in bed), with the Wake n’Bacon ~ alarm clock and bacon cooker combo:





“Heart Robot, who has been programmed to react ’emotionally’, depending on how he is treated, has brought out the bully in many of the visitors to a science event. The electronic puppet, created by scientists at the University of the West of England in Bristol, visibly relaxes in response to soothing, low sounds or a gentle touch.


Heart Robot looks like a cross between ET, Teletubbies and Gollum, and is about the size of a small child. Different children react to him very differently. They either want to hug and cuddle him, and look after him like a doll or baby, or they just want to scare him.

And here I’ve been calling our baby-to-be ‘the baby-android’…….



Belly button is turning inside out & the button itself is screamingly white while my belly is tanned from Jamaica. Looks like the tip of a balloon.


Have gained 14-lbs. Slap your mommas. It’s true.


On the street, everyone stares at my belly & I think it’s funny.


Feet feel swollen after a day in work shoes / heels. Time for more foot massages from hubby? I think so.


Wore maternity pants, first time. Felt like a total weirdo but they’re super comfortable. No unbuttoning or unzipping while sitting required.


Making noises like ‘ooof’ or ‘huffpt’ when I get up or down from couch. Completely beyond my control.


Tired all over again. Sleeeeep precious sleeeeeep.


Craving coffee (could just be effect from being tired). Went for decaf instead.

Have I lost you

My penmanship

My ink mind

My prose


Have we parted

My epistolary

My composition

My verse


Have we hidden

My canon

My corpus

My lucubration


Have you left me

My quick writ

My communication

My scriptorial


Have we ended

My belletristic

My saga

My scribble






The Porcelain Pistols are replicas of James Bond’s Walther PPK and its contemporary sister, the P99,with friendly permission of Carl Walther Inc.The fragile weapon, hand-painted in the style of classic tableware motifs, liesnext to your coffee and cake, asking to be picked up. Its coolness andcomfortable grip increase the qualms of the user, leaving him in a quandary between the pleasure of luxury and violence.
