Pumpkins 2016

20161031_205737pumpkinsWe grew pumpkins this year. Not super-successfully, but we didn’t have to buy any for Hallowe’en. The kids were more self-sufficient this year, and had lots of ideas too, and I had to fight to retain one of the six pumpkins for my own endeavour. I did Fone Bone with his map and the dragon watching ominously from behind, from the cover of Out from Boneville. I thought about doing Bartleby, but didn’t find an image that seemed right.

Van for OMG Worktops

If entering “58008” on your calculator and turning it upside-down was amusing to 11-year-olds in 1985, then not posting on your blog for almost two weeks and then putting up a picture of a van with “OMG” on it must be about right for a 6-year-old in 2011. I strive to maintain high standards here at beepily.

Would I have changed my company name if it were mine and predated the internet abbreviation? Probably not. My employees would just need extra holiday allowance or something to help them smile calmly every time someone made the reference as though it were funny.

In any case, this is now the only firm I can name off the top of my head that deals with stone and composite worktops.
