I bet Geoff's been sitting there all day waiting to set off his fireworks

Bjay, my mum's marmalade is good but occasionally she produces a 'loose' batch as she calls it! My middle sister is the expert but I don't want to own up to my failure so I'm relying on Google to help me out. I may also get out my jam thermometer.

Are we nearly all here yet 

Ooooh AaaaaaH  lovely fireworks Geoff

I'm off to reboil the marmalade, I may be some time.

Hello all! Happy Page 1000!!

Been for a quick trip to the GC this morning to get a birthday present for my friend - her birthday is tomorrow. Then a trip into Camberley for various bits and pieces, and now home for an afternoon of tea and cake in front of a good film (I hope!)

I didn't have time for a long browse round the GC so will have to go back again (any excuse) as I noticed quite a few people at the tills with seed potatoes and I want to try a few of the varieties Pam suggested.

Becks, many congratulations on the new nephew! 

Sasha, just don't wander off too far - stay in sight, ok?

Thanks Lottie!

Well, would you Adam'n'Eve it !! The marmalade has set after all.    It was definitely runny at 2pm and it appeared to have cooled so I thought that was that. Marmers on toast then

Well have balloon then Miss

 Everbody have a balloon

03/02/2013 at 16:16

Not at moment thanks. Have a confession to make. On Tuesday I had some salmon left over from the Do and a bone went in my throat. Thing is it's still there and getting painful and toast would hurt. Guess its the Docs tomorrow - not my fave place. I've tried bread immediately, drinks, gargling, eating! just stuck, I can feel it, But I can still eat etc. 

03/02/2013 at 16:21

Oooh, Bjay. That's awful. I had the same thing happen once and it turned out that it had actually gone but scratched my throat quite badly. Hope it's easily sorted tomorrow.

03/02/2013 at 16:23

Bjay, you may find its not actually still there but has scratched your throat and what you can feel is the scratch - but yes, definitely the docs for you tomorrow! Ouch.

A balloon? Don't mind if I do! Thanks Geoff.

The Queen Mother was involved in a famous incident (1993) when a fish bone was stuck in her throat. Can be nasty. Be very careful. Let's hope it was just a scratch.
