I've written before about my love of snow and festive frolics. I thought I might touch on the dark side of winter. Let's be honest, here, winter can be depressing and frightening. Why do we have all these cheerful winter traditions and festivals? Because we know the dark and the cold are out there, waiting … Continue reading Winter Nostalgia
You know those videos I make for the youtubes? You probably don't watch them. I'll forgive your treachery, you beautiful creature. You hurt me over and over, but I just come back for more. Here's Moments of FESTIVE Excellence! Festive Excellence!
Regular readers will already know that I'm sophisticated fellow. I may work as a cleaner, but I read books with long words in and I stroke my beard while thinking about complex philosophical issues. On top of those accomplishments, I also socialize in ways that would astonish plebs like what you lot are. Mrs Viper … Continue reading Another Masquerade
The year has rolled around and we've had ourselves another Yule Sacrifice. You might call it a family Christmas party, but I'm far more outre and pretentious than you. We Vipers live in a small house. My home, "Viper's Hole", is a tight fit. There's not much room at the best of times, so the … Continue reading Another Yule Sacrifice
Another blog post? Yes, why the hell not. It's my blog, I'll do as I please. This is a short one. This is about snow. I'm a grown man. Why do I crave snow? Why do I, quite genuinely, dream of a white Christmas? Snow is the last piece of magic that the universe has … Continue reading The Viper’s Feeling for Snow

It'll end up stained with my absurdity. I'm not really bright or articulate enough to communicate what I want to say, so … Continue reading Poisonous Beliefs
Chilly, isn't it? Well, it is here. I don't know what it's like with you, I'm not bloody well psychic, am I? It's pretty nippy around Viper's Hole today. It's winter, so that's to be expected. I'm resisting having the heating on, but the Viperina was beginning to shiver, so I've set the boiler going. … Continue reading Follow your Dreams! (A rebuttal)
Another 'Moments of Excellence'?! Why not? Go on, treat yourself. Moments of Excellence Twelve It's Advent! Hope you're enjoying it. Much love, Viper (and, to a lesser extent, Greg).
Well, well, well. Look who it is. You. Creeping back to my blog to find out about my luxurious Viperish lifestyle. You never write, you never call. You just slither into my blog and start looking for good stuff. Then I, like a fool, give you that stuff. All that lovely stuff. I went out … Continue reading Bear Coffee Company – Derby
I'm feeling a little fragile. You want to know why? I'll tell you for why. Today I took our pushchair to the charity shop. There's no point keeping it, we don't need it any more. It's a bulky bit of kit to have in the closet. What possible emergency would we keep it for? A … Continue reading Fragility
