Hi. PB! They are mostly abbreviations of people's pseudonyms - TT is Tina Turner, for example. As an OAP, don't you remember the ad for Cadbury's Dairy Milk - 'Award Yourself the CDM'?
Oh, GG, I had forgotten that. Wish I could. Not a hint of chocolate has passed my lips since I ate 5 chocolates at Christmas. I stared at a 'Twirl' whilst at the checkout last week, but had a chat with myself and it stayed on the shelf. I am hoping it's going to be like smoking, if and when I do try it again, I won't like it any more.
Did you see those pigs just fly over,
Well done TT that's one Twirl you didn't eat.
Having that terrible bug last week at least meant that I'd lost 6lb when I was weighed today.
Yes, Bev, but I wanted to eat it! I do know though, that if I start again, I won't stop. Bit like an alcoholic but a chocoholic. One piece too much, whole bar not enough.
Not a good way to lose weight is it. Hope you are OK now.
Hello folks! I'm nearly asleep on the sofa before I've signed in here - but I've no gardening to report - except I forgot to tell you yesterday that I'd found two Lily beetles in amorous embrace on my Crown Imperials
They were squidged immediately - they didn't know what hit them
Well, Dove, nice way to go!
I've got some seeds sown at last. Fingers crossed that most germinate. There was just enough room left in the kitchen for them- don't know quite what I'll do when they need potting up- will have to risk some in my mini greenhouse.
Has anyone heard anything from Brumbull today?
Just looked at the weather for my area tomorrow. Looks like the housework won't get done Bev.
Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, It's off to work I go, with a shovel and a pick and a ruhbarb stick, Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho.
Not the right words, but it will do. Think I need to go to bed.
You can always plant them in my garden Verdun.
Beautiful day with non-stop sunshine. Apparently reached 20 degrees. Hot. Same again tomorrow. Don't you quickly forget the awful weather we have had.
Did what I could today, but didn't have too much energy. Tomorrow's another day, as they say.
Did you get 3 degrees Verdun
20 degrees! Not even that in my house just now
And it's to be p***ing down tomorrow here
Don't get carried away with that shovel Tina!
Hmm, might get carried away with something. Just changed their minds and it's not going to be quite so hot tomorrow. As long as it's dry, that's OK.
Here's your prize, Verdun.
Just in from my greenhouse and it got to 36 today - and that was with 4 window vents and the door open. And frost forecast for Sat night. I think they call this volatile.
My computer has come back virus free - so I now have access to all smileys. So by way of celebration:
A whirlwind of emotions !
Lovely day 20C. watered all the babies, nursed the sick (OH with a cough) tea breaks outside.
still 14C out there and the bats are out.
