Now, I’m not telling you how to suck eggs, but from what I understand, ‘car boot sales’ or 'boot fairs' (if you're posh) are mainly a British phenomenon. The most similar thing you would find in the U.S. would be a flea market, I guess. In my country, people usually converge on some large … Continue reading Tables ‘o’ Crap!
This is a follow up to a post I did in 2015 – ‘Things that Make Me Go Boom’.

Oh well, it's my 46th birthday today ('How young you look, Adele', 'Oh gosh, thanks'), and I thought it my duty to have a stab … Continue reading 46 Things I Have Learned in 46 Years
