Whoever says living in the country is peaceful, is lying. Well, they’re lying to a certain degree, because even though there are lush green paddocks, lots of trees, scattered houses and the obligatory farm animals, there is still a lot of noise and unpeacefulness (I don’t think that’s a word, but I don’t care).

Growing up in the middle of boonies, the nearest store to our house was a little “Mom and Pop” gas station called King’s One Stop. It was about a mile and a half from my house and I used to walk or ride my bike up there on almost a daily basis. Of course this…

How come my weekends seem to fly in? It’s entirely unfair. It’s not even like I did much this weekend, in fact the whole of today was spent lazing about in bed watching The Apprentice USA and Law & Order SVU with the boy. To be honest, it’s my favorite way to spend a Sunday….
