Miss Becks
I've just found a paperback science fiction book up here, and the price on it is 2/-

That is pre-1971-that book could be older than me

Welcome home Glyn-will give you my address for the pressie

Does it feature computers the size of houses?

Heyyy! Welcome back to Blighty Petal  old love 

Bjay - thing in nose - eurgggh. Brave soul, I think chocolate and or cake required.

Becks, I expect your duster is with my secret stash of dusters and other things I prefer not to do

 My philosophy:


Miss Becks

No Sue, they are stories. Can't find a date on the book anywhere though.

I like that Flo, although I have found my duster. In the ironing pile.

Ha there's one of them in our loft Sue - Think its about 12 years old. It's enormous  There's also a spectrum and a commodore up there The things we keep !

Hi Glyn - glad you are home safe and well .

It's gone really dark here  somethings coming. Please please don't lt it be snow .



oooh trez posh -someone who irons dusters-dont think even Jo goes that far

In my busy loft is one of the first tv computer consoles-in black and white-a thing that just goes plink-plonk

Sue H
Jean if you use one of those giant computers it will take about a day to send an email! And another day to receive one!
Miss Becks

Found the date of it on a collectors website. 1959. Good Lord. No wonder it looks tatty.


We have ancient Spectrum in loft as well. OH bought it with the proceeds of giving up smoking!

Keep coughing perhaps something is happening throat wise.

Just given my agapanthus a drink, they are small ones and kept in garage over-winter. Would quite like a couple of the really large ones, do they need to be garaged (frost free) over winter as well?

I have a job to find dusters never mind ironing them

Welcome back Glyn. Have a good sleep now

Sue H
Don't diss my birthyear

Oh, that's a nice house, seems familiar.......!

Windy here, as it is everywhere I think. And due to get quite a bit colder tomorrow.

Had a very nice lunch at the italian restaurant including a glass of wine so if I fall asleep at my desk will someone please shout at me and wake me up? Thanks!

Jean, those are probably collectors items now.

I don't iron my dusters. I don't do ironing or dusting!


I enjoyed looking at your house Geoff. Better photos and more details than when in some post we were sending our house photos and few people dared send one that showed too much. But I wish it could have been summer because the garden is asleep. I said I was nosey, used to watch through the keyhole.



We had lunch at MacDonalds, were shopping. Italian sounds heaps better.


It is a joy to ee that I am anything but alone in my detestation of dusting and such like - what a waste of time it is!! There are gardening books to read, catalogues to examine, anything except housework - and soon there will be real outdoor gardening to do (did get some outside at the weekend), and we need to nurture our energies for that - not waste it on dusting and other disgusting persuits!


My birth year as well 

No room sizes Geoff or don't they do that any more so that they get the punters in. Still nice house, good garden.

Wind seems to have dropped again

I have a fridge magnet that says

Gardening forever - housework whenever
