The Game..

The Game!

Sooo… it’s time for Euro 2016, a whole 30 days of football. I would say that I’ll be in the garden if you need me, but having just been drenched (again) by another thunderstorm, I’ll probably just buy some ear plugs to deaden the noise of Steve’s enthusiastic supporting!




Navigating a tricky situation…

Hire Care

What? I thought that was what the passenger seat was for- otherwise why do I always fall asleep the minute I sit in one?

Sadly we have not been on any jolly holidays but have been embroiled in the hell that is re-decorating the kitchen. Thankfully we have finished now- and without going anywhere near the divorce courts!

For anyone lucky enough to be going away- we hope you all have a wonderful time!


The Birthday List

Cazs birthday

I went with this strip from Carole’s book of scripts because it was nice and easy to draw! It also made sense to have Caz’s birthday close to the anniversary of when we started.*

Happy Saturday, Steve

*It’s also ages to Carole’s birthday, so she has plenty of time to get her own list ready

Tooled Up…


This week it is Caz’s one year anniversary, and also, this is our 100th comic strip. Thank you everyone for following, commenting, liking and supporting our efforts!

I do indeed have my own tool box – it’s not as fancy as Caz’s unfortunately, but I am quite protective of it. Our tool collection came on in leaps and bounds once I took over all the DIY. Shopping for tools is still shopping, after all!

Why are we here…?

Why are we here

A couple of weeks ago, there was a storm in England. Not a great big American-type storm, just some really high winds. The powers that be decided to close the bridge that links Essex and Kent, stranding thousands of people in a massive traffic jam, for hours. We hadn’t been planning to visit the mall, but managed to take refuge there – for 9 long hours! By the end, the mall was deserted, half the shops were closed as their staff could not get in, and it started to feel a bit creepy, like we were extras in a horror movie! Still, better than being in the car.

By the way, I love how Steve has drawn Caz having a tantrum like a 2 year old, whilst Stu is smiling cheerfully at the kid in the next car. We all know that in reality, I ate my way through all the sweets I could find, and Steve worked his way through the A-Z of swear words!
