Greetings you guys! I can’t believe it’s only been two weeks since our last Wondrous Words Wednesday. It feels like ages!

Can you believe that tomorrow is the 110 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic?  As far as I have it, there is no one left to tell the tale, but throughout the last century, there’s been numerous recollections, retellings and speculations on the awful events of 14/15 April 1912.

Wondrous Words Wednesday – Frustration

Wondrous Words Wednesday – Frustration

Greetings you guys! This is going to be a 5 min post. Our internet has been down for the last day and a half and mobile data only gets you that far. Oh, the joys of building and renovations. If one of the trucks are a bit too heavy on the ADSL line that is buried under the pavers, the internet goes down. Daddy isn’t at home and Mommy has no clue where to check or even what to say regarding the astounding service from the call center. Hopefully Daddy will be home tonight… Soooo our Wondrous Word for today, is a word all of us know or experience at some or other time and it’s my Mommy’s main emotion (I guess it’s an emotion as well?) today: Thankfully I am here and as you know, cats are the perfect antidote to frustration. We’ll just drink some tea, read our […]

I know, that’s rather strange for a bookworm, but did you know that worms actually love company and form herds? Earthworms form herds and make “group decisions”, scientists have discovered. The earthworms use touch to communicate and influence each other’s behaviour, according to research published in the journal Ethology. By doing so the worms collectively decide to travel in the same direction as part of a single herd. See, that is […]
