Well the other has just arrived Bjay, so I now have two boxes calling me to open them. But I promised Jess she could help, so I'm off to pick her up now, and the fun and games will start in about an hour!

Went to a very smart restaurant once, I pointed out that I didn't want roast lion thank you. Manager apology, didn't knock anything off bill though

I think we have provided a public service that need wider recognition

Sorry for rambling down nostalgia avenue

Hope I get the Queen and not Prince Charles

Have just been flicking through-we have lost a few smallswan, woo2, Miss B who pops up occasionally Yvie Figrat-I wonder where they are now-some of us go on and on and on and on forever

I 'joined' the thread last summer and have enjoyed all the friendly banter, advice and have learnt a lot, not only about gardening. Long may it continue.

06/02/2013 at 16:28

Just today-advice about how to get a plug white-you cannot put a price on that

Oh and news on French smalls being an hour difference to ours

06/02/2013 at 16:34

Precisely Geoff, that's what I mean. How would we get through the day without such information

06/02/2013 at 16:36

... Health and fitness advice....

In this demonstration of strength, Geoffrey Soton CBE holds a full watering can at arm's length...

Whatever happened to this Gary bloke?

Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky hold the yellow jersey in Tour de France. You could put a tenner on Bradley to be holding the jersey on the Champs-Elysees in a fortnight's time. He is actually the bookies favourite, though, personally, I regard it as very risky and shall not be investing. It's just too easy to fall off a bike. The odds are here:

The odds on Bradley winning are 10/11. I think that means that if you invest 10 shillings, and he wins, and you make 1 shilling. I really can't see that as the way to make a fortune.

OMG, what a sight to come home too!

Busy day, shops, bank, phonecalls, still to sort out washing/airing. Daughter will be home sometime soon. Ah, like now....

Boiler started again just now, whilst on the phone, & because I ignored it, it shut up- I wish it were that simple.

OH should be around next Monday so shall suggest that he organises the engineer visit etc for then!

Right off to get washing in & think of something inspirirng for meal..... back later I expect. J.

Bjay, don't even consider a trip back to early Forkland. As you can see from Geoffrey's titbits, you haven't missed anything   It's a bit like Not the Nine o Clock News or the Now Show in that being topical (sort of) it doesn't come across right when the moment has passed.  I suspect early contributors who are still with us have read all of it !!!

 Here's one

lHad felafels and salad. Waiting for egg-custardy style rice pud to finish baking. Will save half to have cold for breakfast tomorrow.

06/02/2013 at 17:16

Oooh, rice pud  Haven't made one for ages. Need to get some more milk first.

06/02/2013 at 17:18

I made one last night and it was yummy. It will be re-heated tonight served with a nice dollop of strawberry jam.

In this sort of weather I want comfort food - anyone else feel the same?


06/02/2013 at 17:18

Mrs Geoff has made a rice pudding-that is the next 3 days sorted

06/02/2013 at 17:46

Haven't made one for ages. Bought some WW ones last week to try - won't be buying them again (no smiley suitable)

I've learnt alot on this thread - using computer, mending things, stuff and some gardening tips as well

I have to cook dinner - OH not up to it - still poorly we are having Cottage pie followed by cheese for OH and the dog and fresh fruit for me
