It has been fed on a diet of cheese and leek pasties

There you are Gary in Salford the birds have been blasted off-either that or they buggered off

Caz will back me up

Will we be too late for BGT?

26/01/2013 at 16:16

If we get in quick-we are on a winner

If not- I have a flea circus as a back up

Last time I was in cahoots with you Geoff I got into all sorts of trouble and had to go into hiding.  Has Flo forgiven us .  I see you are still shouldering blame as the token male

She is speaking to me though gritted teeth-which is useful with all that snow on stage.

Jean horrendous journey, poor you. I couldnt believe the news this morning. I know we are lucky here, but Wigan way got it worse the last time too.

Gary birds on our fence count around here!

Daughter has decided that I can redo the birdwatch tomorrow morning, whilst watching the tennis maybe? It always happens - all the regulars do a vanishing act on 'the day'.

Have just been sampling homemade foccatia dipped into oil/balsamic vinegar, now to get round to doing my sauce to go with whatever is left. J.

Ooh Jo, lots of good bread and oil/balsamic .  That would do me - wouldn't need anything else. Well, maybe a little vino to help it down . (We love the basil infused oil best).

Geoff I do not want to get in trouble by association, have you checked the animal work laws?

What is good enough for Pudsey -is good enough for twentyoneshillings

26/01/2013 at 16:36

Seriously?

I have had the nod from Amanda and Simon

QPR will not be entering

I meant the name?

A guinea is twenty one shillings-or toss for short

A poem~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have a little SatNav.
It sits there in my car.
A SatNav is a driver's friend,
It tells you where you are.

I have a little SatNav.
I've had it most of my life.
It’s better than the normal ones.
My SatNav is my wife.

It gives me full instructions,
Especially how to drive
"It's thirty miles an hour," it says,
"You're doing thirty-five."

It tells me when to stop and start
And when to use the brake,
And tells me that it's never, ever
Safe to overtake.

It tells me when a light is red
And when it goes to green.
It seems to know instinctively,
Just when to intervene.

It lists the vehicles just in front
And all those to the rear
And taking this into account,
It specifies my gear.

I'm sure no other driver
Has so helpful a device,
For when we leave and lock the car,
It still gives its advice

It fills me up with counselling
Each journey's pretty fraught,
So why don't I exchange it
And get a quieter sort?

Ah well, you see, it cleans the house,
Makes sure I'm properly fed.
It washes all my shirts and things
And…keeps me warm in bed!

Despite all these advantages
And my tendency to scoff,
I really wish that just for once,
I could darn well turn it off.

Lovely poem, did you write it? My OH says I'm like your OH!

I hope Darren has his leg up while searching for gardening courses. My son had the op. and played rugby again. (until he did in his other knee!)

Snowed this morning but it's all melted.

26/01/2013 at 16:59

Geoff

I am afraid I only know decimals

Liz I never do that

.. tomorrow morning, whilst watching the tennis...

Mustn't forget that. Starts 8.15am, I think. Easy to forget it at that time.

26/01/2013 at 17:01

Liz - I think Mr Google may have helped him with that poem

26/01/2013 at 17:07

I pinched it

Dont worry Gary-contant tennis updates will be posted whilst I pace about

Kate you are showing your age

Greetings from Snowmaggedon  Oh my lord I've never seen so much snow. We've now managed to shift most of from the drive and OH got car out to drive grandson to Liverpool as he is going to London . All main roads and motor ways fine now and thankfully there's a thaw on. I've never seen anything like it  - a foot of snow in an hour. So relieved to get home last night but feel so sorry for those who were trapped in their cars. We've all had a dig out today so cul-de-sac not so bad now.

Flo - that doesn't sound good . Hope you get the electrics sorted soon. Read that but a lot to catch up on. Oh, and Bunny's photos. haven't taken any cos I never want to see it again .
