A spokesperson for the industry claimed that 80% of all pyjama purchases are made by or for homeworkers - who will now need to wear 'something sensible' to appear in front of the camera.

Bitton Needs You

Bitton Needs You, originally uploaded by Photoportunity.
I took on the lead in fundraising effort, or at least the start of it, for our clubhouse (more at some 2 months ago after much delay and frustration.

For many years the building has been slowly decaying and something needs to be done for the sake of our community and for the people who use The Rec on a weekly basis.

We're now on our second attempt to find funding for a feasibility study and, once that's through, the big task starts: public consultation, planning applications and of course the drive to find the capital funding for the new build.

Wish me luck and if you have time , sign up at and leave us a comment.

I went to Cabot Circus today to pick up a valentine's card for Karen. As we reached the main concourse we noticed how many had gathered and at 1 pm a whistle blew and... well, all hell broke loose.
