Uurgh, a very tiring afternoon visit to Jess's grandparents over and done with. Both loonies. One is in a motorized wheelchair and he has no sense of steering, and the other is like Hilda Ogden on speed!

Yes, I can drive. I'm a good driver! Will apply to have my licence returned after mowing down a lollipop lady! (It was actually the kids I was aiming for!)

FLoBear - I think it's the bouquets that have got them confused, the commentators that is.

Insomnia1973, sounds like a fun packed afternoon, put the kettle on and have some cake, that's what I'm going to do!!!!

Thanks for your invitation to join your team, Kate. I understand only strikers needed now but I'll give it a go. Will there be any lemon drizzle cake?  Do you think we'll be ready in time or the next Lympics. I fancy a trip to Rio.

Just had an international call (not answered). They must have the power back on today.

Flo-bridesmaid?-perhaps she was looking for a peddler

Becks-Hilda Ogden? -that goes back a bit-I am worried about your driving credentials -so have called up a substitute


01/08/2012 at 17:09

Erm, I don't think so! I was only joking luckily. My licence is squeaky clean! You are not replacing me with that piece of eye candy!! He would put the female players off cause they'd keep staring at him. Be sensible Geoff!

01/08/2012 at 17:14

I am always sensible-I have got "O"levels in it

For my 3 year old dinner tonight -fritters ,mash, baked beans-last night I had chocolate instant whip-it is nice when you just fancy these things-what is Jess having?

01/08/2012 at 17:16

He could always be the substitute driver if your ill Becks and he can help me? as physio I might need someone to help stretcher off a player

01/08/2012 at 17:17

She has requested ham and cheese omelette and chips tonight! That's good enough for me. Nice and simple.

01/08/2012 at 17:18

Ha ha ha, Ok Jenny. We can shove him in the luggage compartment until you need him.

01/08/2012 at 17:22

Jenny I am concerned about the height problem if you are stretchering people off -we cant have them sliding down the stretcher-so have get you this fork lift


 is it small enough?

01/08/2012 at 17:23

Nice one

Were having lasagne, new potatoes and not decided about veg yet Ive only one sweet potato left what can I do with it any suggestions? I have peppers and carrots in fridge too if that helps

01/08/2012 at 17:24

Geoff I want one of them that would be great fun

01/08/2012 at 17:26

What a sweet little boy?

01/08/2012 at 17:27

lovetogarden - cake consumed and kettle on for the second time! You guys lead me astray.

Will have to bake another tonight now.

I have spent most of today filling in an application form for a job. Why do they ask for such silly information, is it really relevant and who really cares!. And personal statements.... all that bigging yourself up, Im not good at that part either.

On hobbies.... I have put cyber football!! Sister will now proof read it, Im sure she will add her bit and big me up even more!

Having a G&T now, well deserved I think.

A few companies I worked for you had to reapply for your own job and then also you had yearly assessment but you had to say how good you were-isn't that work for someone else-some things I don't get- and I am sensible

01/08/2012 at 17:35

Kate I see you now make curried mince and I now make Keema!!

Miss B I would hate to fill in a job application now, my OH had to do that. Id rather a referee (not a footie one) did that bigging up bit. Im with you Im not comfortable with that but now a days thats just the way it is

Put your feet up and enjoy your G and T

01/08/2012 at 17:55

Is it Pimms o'clock yet?

01/08/2012 at 17:59

If you know where your yardarm is and the sun has gone below it then definately.

01/08/2012 at 18:41

loveto garden - of course, the bouquets!

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