A new (blogging) home

Howdy all… Do things look a little different to you?  Me too – I’ve moved house in the virtual sense too! So the BF bought me a domain (isn’t he a romantic) and now that I live with him in captivity, we ‘moved house’ in the virtual sense too.  So instead of being livetolist.wordpress.com, I’ve …

Electronic inventory

If it plugs in, it’s on this list (whether I bore you with a photo, is another matter!)  Oh and thieves, eat your heart out.  The TV and the VCR/DVD player were freebies, so I’m not too fussed if you take those.  My phones, well, they hardly work well, so I can’t imagine you getting …
