The Whisky Cabinet

Jen was giving me a hard time recently about the single malt collection as it took up all the bench space in the dining area. So this weekend we went out to IKEA and picked up a cabinet.  Four hours of construction later….voila! Jen was telling her mum about it last night.  She suggested I install a lock before my ...

Jen decided to make a ratatouille and cous cous dish and she ...

Stuff going on

One of the best things we did last month was buy a new couch.

Catching up on things

You’ll notice its been pretty dead on the ol’ Fat Web for the month of February. That’s not to say nothing has happened.  Far from it.  Just a set of circumstances where we’ve had people crashing on the couch and some extra visitors passing through so I haven’t really had the opportunity to take five and blog about stuff. But ...
