Ollie has to take something 'living' into school tomorrow. His heart was set on a crab. Nevermind that the house is full of easy to catch geckos (or is the plural gecki (?)) and other wildlife, no we had to trek to the beach (it's a hard life) and run around with our jam jar poised to pounce. Do you know how quickly crabs move? I do. Anyway, successful mission. Tonight I said we should feed it. Feed it? said Andy looking at me as if I was bonkers - well I don't want it dead before school tomorrow. It would be like the Monty Python parrot sketch wouldn't it. So, I suggested bread. More 'are you deranged?' stares my way. Now I sit guiltily and worried that it won't survive the night.....all I can think of is this caviar (a present) in the fridge - are crabs cannibals, sort of? Well they must all be mates in the sea, musn't they? I tell you, the homework these teachers give these days......:)

With a lick of paint or two

Looked at an interesting property today with a view to updating it and renting it and/or selling it. This is one of our big interests - property potential/opportunity/development. It's on the seafront, literally. I'd like to say it's in the Brighton of Dominica but it's probably more like the Belfast of. However, in estate agent's terms, if I was one, I'd say it was truly 'up and coming'. Will now work out if the figures stack up which translates into, will the bank cough up. I'm a creative accountant.........

My beautiful eldest daughter.

I am completely obsessed by maintaining clean water in the pool.
