I didnt think that the cookery books were personal/individual either Geoff. OH decided otherwise. I cant remember who got what as a pressie/bought, except when I want a particular recipe & it's in one of those books that arent here/cant be found.

The chopper been over again!

Hope Flo feeling a bit better. Staying indoors, tucked up is the best thing to do in this weather.

Chris- I needed to renew my driving licence photo last yr. So knowing that it was due, I got my pics done before the chemo kicked in, whilst had hair! It's quite interesting seeing how it looked then cf now. Shall probably think about a trim sometime soon. Need to check out exactly where the salon is that was recommended to me by another C lady locally.

Meal planned for tonight has altered to something easy, & it uses up things from cupboard & fridge! J.

Gosh it's windy out there!!

Heard couple of bumps but don't think it's the pots

Sitting warm and cosy with fire, TV and lap top, cat washing in front of fire, other one buried in settee cushions, Oscar surprisingly absent but then cooking going on in kitchen

Thanks for concern/advice, dear forkers. I've had a dozy afternoon in front of telly and feel human again so am going to Yoga. Car heater on full, I think.

Oooh, Bjay, I notice you've passed the 2-grand mark now.

Never said earlier - on potato topic - went to Wilkinson and they are selling their small packs (5) 4 for the price of 3 normal price £1.50. Bought 2 Charlotte and 2 Anya not quite what I planned but hey good price and right quantities for my containers.

They also had begonia corms at  3 for 2 I think

Think I'll have to cut back a bit then

Deano!! How the devil are you!

Evening Dean!

I'm not yet of buspass age, but am grey haired. Regularly use the bus & surprise the driver by slapping my £5 down & asking for a day saver. Quite often they have to scrap the ticket they'd done in anticipation!

Have to admit, my getting the state pension age may have really shifted, , but if the bus pass gets delayed as well......

We've just watched the Richard 3rd prog. Daughter of course is also reading up about it on net at same time..... J.

Others are having their daily glass of wine   - not mentioning any names

Never iron my smalls. Feeling a bit flat after funeral. Also on way from crematorium to wake was howling gale, hale and sleet and big fallen tree blocking the road. Going to watch Midsomer Murders with glass of something alcoholic.

Aw Liz-not a nice day

Are you the same time as us or an hour different?

05/02/2013 at 19:56

Caz. Looks like my fishbowl!

05/02/2013 at 20:03

Liz! Settle down to a nice glass! Never easy, I must admit! 

Yo Caz! 

05/02/2013 at 20:06

Don't have any smalls


05/02/2013 at 20:10

Blimey - it would take all day to iron a few of those

05/02/2013 at 20:12
