No Glyn, but a bit of Irish. So that should be about right! LOL Saying a phrase from another part of the turf!
Kate, One of my neighbours has Waitrose/Ocado deliveries as we don't have one around here.
Jo, oops didn't think about KL like that. Hope I haven't offended anyone.
Parkin, now there's a thought . Glyn, We could have 3 parties - Bonfire night coming up as well. Always associate Parkin with that.
The heating is going on.
We've just been visited by 5 long-tailed tits having a feed on the fat balls. This is a bad sign , the last time we had them in September , we had that really bad winter. They usually start visiting us November time. Hope they are just hungry.
I have just had a load of notification e-mails timed at 4.26 did it hiccup again?
If you type Kafir Lily onto a BBC forum it throws the word back at you automatically-I wouldn't have thought anyone would take offence here
And talking of offending - I may have inadvertently suggested that Lottie is gannet when I suggested pre-cake cake ;- )
My Mum got really good at dividing things into 5 or 7 depending on whether it was just the kids or parents included. Now I'm all grown up I realise she probably did 6 or 8 in her head and gave the bigger ones - especially Dad - a little bit more.
We were a family of four and if my Mum got ratty she would mix the names up in a rush to tell someone off -so it would be"don't do that Anne, Marion,Helen I meant Helen" all very quickly
Ok I am going to have to ask, what is Parkin?
Snap on the emails.
Geoff , me too. Just had 21 e mails in one go !
Presumably you didn't mind being called Anne, Marion or Helen ;- )
Love your flower of the day, Pam. Is it a solanum?
Halloween party is a great idea,Jean.

I shop at Waitrose because........
I hate poor people
their colour scheme matches my Range Rover.
Jocasta simple WON'T eat any other supermarket's sun-ripened guava.
Clarissa's pony just will not eat ASDA value straw.
Geoff. My dad always did that!
You're right Jean, I was getting confused. Is there anything specific related to Halloween apart from bobbing apples. Good idea, a bonfire party, we could have sparklers.
Geoff, the thing I like best about this thread, is that everything is taken in good spirit and even though most of us have never met, I feel like we care about each other.
Kate . it's gorgeous. All I can say is it's like a traybake and it has ginger, treacle and spices in it . Think the name is derived from the saying '' parky'' meaning chilly.
Jean, that Parkin sounds like my sort of treat! I must immediately find a recipe. What with that and choccy puffs I'll be expanding rapidly!!
Flo I was an angel and never did anything wrong-some people never change
I thought parky was a chat show host
The Yorkshire Parkin has fine oatmeal in as well, easy to make.
No offence taken, Flo! I like cake
Geoff, there was somebody in our house called KaChriSteveJen - never found out exactly who it was!
And for the Waitrose story:
Angel! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Yes he was, he was attacked by a nemu or was it a menu?
Sorry Becks, meant to say Hi Is it just me or are we all being careful in what we're posting today ? Hope I haven't been the cause of it . Me and my ''ahem'' misunderstanding. Anyway , going to make a statement and hope it doesn't offend.
I've grown a pair ! (Please don't ask me to elaborate !)
Where is Inka? She was a bit down the other day.
