Hard luck Geoff. They started around here at 8am I think, but cant remember when they finished.
I noticed that any building work being done in Austria started at 7.30am on the dot! I was usually partway around a lake, pretty cold, hungry & fed up. OH was usuallyu diving into shrubs clutching his new camera asking 'is this where such & such a shot was taken?' How the dickens was I meant to know, or care , but did point out that small trees get bigger over 8yrs.......... Lots of new seats around, so when we could avoid the flooding, I was often just sat, waiting..... J.
My eldest son spent 6 years in Oxford as well Jo, we enjoy looking at the sights we know on Lewis. He walked across a set of a Peter Postlethwaite movie once. He said he needed to go thru the door they were filming by
I spend time trying to remember actor names as well. and much prefer Lewis as a 2 hour prog. Have you seen on another thread that Beeb have already taken off iplayer letter 'B' of the A-Z
Here you are gold marmite and the teapot
and a pair of dirty socks

Cor Bjay. I dont know that I'd want tea out of the teapot though- Marmite flavoured tea would keep going through my mind. A Marmite drink, now that's another matter

Hello, Freerange Forkers----glad to see you are still coping with the white stuff by getting out and about. Love the Snowbarb! Still have ghost ships moaning eerily in the foggy Pass, but supposed to rain tonight. Woke to the sweet sound of heavy machinery on my hill--they had to fix it before it rains, I'm guessing.
Weigh-in day--have lost some, so it's all good. And have done a temporary fix on the garden gate--think I will build a new one, and see how creative I can get with it.
Good precis Geoff.
Have been & swopped into a warmer cardi as my L elbow is really aching. That usually heralds warmer weather, but not going colder as it is outside at the mo. Oh, hang on who used L arm when cleaning windows etc?
Need to add to Tesco now.
Hope that you have a good journey Glyn. J.
I also like to watch Lewis in one big chunk, much easier to guess who dunnit.
I would like the teapot to add to my collection
I have had car troubles today, somehow I have managed to drain the water out of my car, so after 10 minutes of warming it up it started to smell of burning, I had to get OH to take me to work, then he kindly fixed my car. I will be glad when January is over.
Kate you have made it home too
Proper day tomorrow?
That is the current plan, hope it is not too icy tomorrow
Becks I wonder if I could sell mine for that much

Hello, just read it all. Love the photo of the witch hazel with the sun on the flowers. My mother always had a bottle of the antiseptic when I was a child, I loved the smell.
Harder to chuck children out in France. When the OH dies that part goes to the children, unless they've done a will when it's divided between children and spouse. Spouse usually has right to live in house but not keep all the money if it's sold, shared with children. However, the law has changed in the last few years, (since my 1st OH died) so not sure any more.
Estate agents here charge about 7%. The buyer pays. There's notaire (like solicitor) and taxes - about another 7%. House prices are a lot cheaper though. Estate agents here don't try very hard compared with English ones.

Ice might be a problem first thing Kate
