He might be on today or tomorrow-not sure

Another prospect gone-there is ladies dive-bombing on now

31/07/2012 at 15:30

Any viewings yet?

31/07/2012 at 15:33

No -he seems to have gone way for a while-the windows are open for the cat-don't know who is feeding it-I need training in curtain twitching-can you help?

The secret is listening, you need to be able to distinguish between passing noise and stuff happening. You then need a variety of activities to occupy vantage points, an example is to iron next to an upstairs window, recycling bins are placed to get a good view of the road etc.

Because we live in a close -we do notice strange cars or people-OH often says who is that parking there or there?Nothing much gets unnoticed

Saw the first XFactor plug last night-I will soon be back in tv heaven

I am missing all the Lympic action - going to work gets in the way of so many important things! I am relying on you guys to keep me informed.

Geoff, you need to keep a window open nearest the neighbour house so that you can be alerted to any comings and goings. Alternatively, bribe the estate agents!

The only problem is that XF is at the start of autumn.

Lottie surely your boss has installed a large screen tv?

I watched a bit of the horsey crosscountry yesterday and loved the airbag thingy that inflated when they fell off. I might take up riding again.

pottiepam you have answered a query for me, I thought I was imagining things.


31/07/2012 at 16:31

 I was surprised at the airbag thingy- come on, that's being too careful. Falling off horses is all part of the fun! Ok still no idea how I ended up with a neat hoof print across my 5yr old chest. Mum not impressed & friends' Mum equally cross, but dont think anyone owned up......

Enjoying flicking chanels & watching all sorts.

Retail therapy, plus a coffee, of course, this morning. Did some food shopping & a tip visit. Have done a bit of cutting back of an Escallonia so that when OH parks where he did this last w/end, nobody gets soaked sqeezing past his car! Cannot get any more into the wheely bin. J.

Really Jo, sounds nasty.

31/07/2012 at 16:37

Why is it you go out to do one quick job - ie pot on the plant you just bought -and it turns into a 2 hour task involving discovering forgotten daff. bulbs, digging over a spare bit of soil, planting said bulbs and fencing off newly dug area to prevent hedgehogs, chickens, dogs and any passing wildlife undoing all your work?

£600 for a horsey airbag

31/07/2012 at 16:41

Only memory I have is of lying on my back with friend & her 2 older brothers leaning over me, oh & the anger of the 2 Mums!! No lasting damage- well that's what I assume.

Always found a spare pony to ride when younger- no proper hats, back protectors nor any thing like that & spending all day out in the woods or riding across the hills locally. Now I know just how worried the Mums were, but they never said! J.

Flo it is always the same when I try to clean, I find a book I meant to read and 2 hours later, where has time gone

Curried mince with rice and peas tonight.

31/07/2012 at 16:46

Kate, found this under Extreme Knitting. No pattern, though.

 Or could knit airbags for horses.

31/07/2012 at 16:51

Kate tries to clean-then finds a book as an excuse not to

Pizza and chips-sounds like a 3 yr old menu

I was never allowed a motor-bike

31/07/2012 at 16:57

I'll swap your pizza for our hot dogs Geoff, which is tonights choice. She doesn't even eat the bun, just the sausage! I have mine on part baked baguettes.

Evening everyone.


31/07/2012 at 16:59

Have random veg to use up. Some sort of stir-fry then, with whatever odds and ends of sauces I can find. Chuck in chick peas for protein.

OH reckons his home-made chips are truly yummy - he practised when I was away a couple of weekends ago!! - so I'm having chips this w/end. Not sure what with, though.
