And Spurs lost

Watching Annie -well I am not- but it is on

Having a cuppa while bread dough rises. Miss English bread. Fresh French bread tears your gums and sliced is American and full of sugar - weird with cheese on toast. The French go on about how wonderful their bread and cheese is but the English is better. The English don't boast enough about their good things.

Flo is "the old hag" you as well? Otherwise you wouldn't say old hag. The bits you can see look rather attractive. Nice hair.

Just the same-there is a bit of snobbery about bread in this country-oops Socialist roots showing again

Quite happy with Kingsmill-such a pleb

I used to like Mother's Pride, especially when fresh and soggy so it stuck to the roof of your moth! I've been here so long I don't understand what's snobby or not in England anymore. Perhaps just as well. Like people for themselves, stuff class.

Meant mouth, not moth!

Definitely not allowed to like white slice bread-despite the fact it is what most people buy-so many things have to be "good for you"

Yes, Lizzie, I'm the old hag   Left to my own devices I would have been more over the top!! I still have my Christmas hair. I had lots of red streaks which were supposedly semi permanent so they would fade and wash out. They haven't yet! 

I've never much liked white stick-to-the-roof-of your-mouth-bread - or even the brown version of that. I like something a bit more substantial and less smooth. Sliced white makes great fried bread, though, and quite nice toast as long as it's thick enough.

Have been hunting the leak, can't find it but realised I have a rat or two in the loft    Let's hope they're not breeding too fast. Now need to wait for rain, pref. in daytime, and hire a rat-catcher. Deep joy. 

Off to light the wood-burner, that will be a cheering thing.

I have just been told they are cooking the meal. Hmm, since it'll be me who clears up regardless, shouldnt worry, but.......

Because it's not been cold today, we allowed the heating to come on at the scheduled time & yep, whistling again, just as this morning & yesterday..... Have showed OH the advice Norm2 gave me. OH not impressed. Well have told him to get in touch with big chief at company, since he, OH, was happy to takeover/muscle in on all the arrangements before when it wouldnt be him, OH, who was going to be inconvenienced.

Somehow this is going to be down to me I think, later in week when am around to make a call, after I'ved nagged OH to no avail & started WW3! J.

jo, I thought you said in the week your hubby was already on the case regarding the boiler???

27/01/2013 at 17:00

Sorry to bore you Geoff!

Becks I thought so too, but apparently not......

It's almost worse than having a toddler/baby wake up & demand attention. You can almost set your clock by it though, so although I shall set my alarm for tomorrow, I'll already have been woken about 5-10mins earlier........ oh & 2hrs earlier when OH leaves for work. J.

Jo. Had so much trouble with our boiler 2 or 3 years ago. Was very very cold. Had no heating for about 2 weeks. Got log burner. Never going to rely on central heating again. Can't tell u how cold we were! All my sympathies with u.
27/01/2013 at 17:07
jo! this may seem a silly question, but is it a condensing boiler?
27/01/2013 at 17:14

Geoff, you wait til you have boiler trouble. 'Spose it won't matter in Spain. You could have been polite and said you were singing.

27/01/2013 at 17:14

Dean, this is jo's new boiler! Hope it helps.


27/01/2013 at 17:20

Believe me Lizzie, that is Geoff being polite!! And jo knows, everytime she posts about that boiler, she will have me and Geoff naggng her to get it fixed. If she doesn't, it will cost her more in the long run to fix.

27/01/2013 at 17:25
Ha! Ha! Ha! Becks! on Ipad hence no smilies, the laptop is viewing A to Z of Gardening!

That boiler is reminding me of a kiddies TV thing! But can,t seem to think what!
27/01/2013 at 17:29

Dean! What messed up kids TV programmes did you watch growing up!!!

27/01/2013 at 17:40
"Got It"......I watched "Cars" with the twin boy's on Boxing Day! That is a dead ringer for that recovery truck! can't remember it's name! But know it begins with M!
