I have been a naughty boy-but I was led astray


25/01/2013 at 21:44

Oh dear! I hope you sat in the naughty corner.

25/01/2013 at 21:58

Led astray!!! Oh, do us a favour!! You are a naughty boy through and through, and this will be remembered for a long time!!

That's it- blame the token male

25/01/2013 at 22:32
If you're hoping for sympathy, forget it! :-/

Isn't Gary the token male?

Caz, I quite agree, to have written 'to do it never, ever...'  would be daft.Never ever to do ... ' would sound better but a split infinitive in English is, I understand, a spurious rule invented by grammarians, way back when, who were used to basing the grammar on Latin rules. And you can't split a Latin infinitive cos it's a single word!

Show went smoothly tonight, I kept well away from snowdrifts. Yesterday's debacle has been christened Bumgate

Aaw Flo, glad you staryed on your feet tonight.

Don't mention snowdrifts. We have just got back after getting stuck in a huge snowstorm. Never seen snow like it - really scary , Sections of motorway closed at Wigan and Parbold and cars abandoned everywhere. Didn't want grandson to drive as it was turning nasty so OH drove and it just came down. Nearly got him home , then he said he'd left his house key on his car keys so turned back. He is now staying with us. Don't think we'll be going anywhere for the foreseeable. Had to push car in places and he's got a chunky diesel.

I am traumatised.

Poor you.

I've just been watching all this on Sky News. Several people seemed to have filmed their experience on mobile phones. Don't worry, RAF mountain rescue helicopters are on their way.

It's been dry here, temps shoud be up to +9 by tonight.

Morning folks!  We've had fresh snowfall, although not as bad as you lot .... yet!  

I've got lots of travelling around to do this weekend - will someone please turn the sunshine back on 

26/01/2013 at 08:18

From my bed - dry sunny not cold.

On its way over to you



26/01/2013 at 08:22

Thanks Geoff -it just arrived

Morning Gary, Dove, Geoff, Pam, Bunny.

Dry and bright here so far though torrential rain for a while last night. While we were out water came throught the bedroom ceiling, down the light fitting, and dripped on the bed.  Had to make alternative sleeping arrangements involving sofa bed, futon, sleeping bags  

Jean, that sounds dreadful, glad you are OK now. I hope the snow doesn't last too long for those who still have all that hassle.

Not looking forward to tonights torrential rain but I am excited about things warming up !!!!
I need to brush snow off plants , bamboo is almost lay flat , trees need a shake as branches bent right over. Maybe a snowman will help clear some away ) for the dog you understand !! ;0

Morning lovelies!!
