Morning All

Sorry David changed again 

Just been swimming and then we went to a blind place and chose some fabric, coming to measure on Monday, may have it soon. And not as much as we thought so that's a relief to. May have a nights sleep before Christmas 

Choc of the day - a banana!

Windy but dry after heavy rain last night

Afternoon lovelies.

Geoff, my choccie entry - a wise old man, or 3 wise men.

Madam is still in bed, so I'll not put the pressie picture up yet, as I have no clues to give yet, as I don't know what it is.

07/12/2012 at 12:06

I have just noticed something scary-there are 6666 threads on the forum-go to the latest posts page -but take someone with you

07/12/2012 at 12:19

I have just entered competition and am not a fan of MD, which suggests I will probably win one of his books 

 

07/12/2012 at 12:22

The toy is a frog of some sort

Plus more haribo goodies

Two snowmen in a field, one turned to the other and said "I don't know about you but I can smell carrots."!

Did you know that Santa's not allowed to go down chimneys this year? It was declared unsafe by the Elf and Safety Commission.

There were two biscuits, on a plate, all ready for Santa to eat. One biscuit decided to go and hide in the biscuit tin as it didn't want to get eaten. As it was going to the kitchen, Santa came in and stood on it and all the other biscuit could say was 'Crumbs'!.

Smiley change over day is this coming Monday-hopefully

Sorry Becks-how are the patients today?

07/12/2012 at 13:20

Brace yourselves-we are all going to die from winter weather again

07/12/2012 at 13:55

Been faffing about removing all BT stuff off my PC, and reinstalling my anti-virus software from Sky.

We're still coughing Geoff, and Jess is staying at home again today. But more active today.

07/12/2012 at 14:10

So  I don't lose track-or miss anybody out-today's entries so far are

Tinker Bauble-banana

Nightowl Elf-a wise old man or three wise men

Twinks-donkey

Ice queen-star

Snowgirl-three wise men

Georg-milk bottle

Anymore??

 

It is eerily quite here today

07/12/2012 at 14:20

My guess for today's wrapped pressie - the toy is a glass slipper, and the 3 edibles are a pumpkin and 2 sugar mice.

Whatever happenned to sugar mice.

07/12/2012 at 14:26

Hello forkers. Welcome Norm. Nice to see you David. I only change half my name otherwise I forget who I am too ;- )

Have been freezing my fingers off in dog-rescue office this morning. Stopped off at sarnie shop for hot coffee and warm baguette with hot bacon and melted cheese. Feeling a bit more human now.

Choccy - a sunshine.

Jess - tiara and jelly babies

My chickens have a) survived the cold night and b) developed a taste for eggs. They have one a day and, if I'm lucky and a second is laid, I get one too.

 

07/12/2012 at 14:36

Just collected two lovely warm eggs

Are they pecking at one Flo?

07/12/2012 at 14:40

Yes, Geoff. They peck it open and slurp up the contents. I knew it must be happening but actually caught them slurping a couple of days ago. I don't mind them having the odd one - they are thin shelled and occasionally break - but it appears to be a deliberate daily act now.

07/12/2012 at 14:41

Advent choc - hmm, not eric so ernie wise - wise men but which one - I'll go for Melchior
Glyn - I used to wonder if people would notice if I didn't send a card. I didn't send one to an elderly aunt one year and the following July she told my mother she was very disappointed that I had forgotten her .
Good luck with the move Jean - hope the weather stays dry.
Becks - glad some improvement but good idea to keep Jess home in the warm today.  I will guess a little baby doll and sweeties.  She must be loving all these pressies every day.

07/12/2012 at 14:42

you can get pink and white sugar mice from my local GC Georg.

07/12/2012 at 14:43

Once they have stated this and got the taste it is hard to break the habit-we have one whose shells sometimes break and they slurp at it-but never caught them deliberately breaking one
