Things I don't get

Patsy; than can you tell me where the devil I've put the wrapping paper?? I only brought it this morning how can I have lost it already.

Why do we even still use wrapping paper and fancy bags for gifts. The extras cost more than the actual gift.

Patsy are you spying on me? Or can you hear the ranting from my kitchen as I attend to get the label off my friends gift??

Chicky we'll not have a lounge back for several months yet. His lordship is doing a lot of the work but likes to really think things through first.

I'm meant to be cleaning the rest of the house today ready for his return so there's no reason why we can't crack on. Right now I'm wondering who will deliver a skip on a Sunday!

Hosta; I fitted a winch on the front which would be perfect for the job. Ideal bit of kit it's brilliant for positioning exhibits in tight spaces I'm sure it'll sort the rock.

You're not precious about your lawn though are you?

The idea of not scratching the paint on my Landy is laughable! When she's cleaned she has a thick layer of wax on as polish; protects the paintwork from most things and makes it easier to clean next time. Christ paint is just paint. Nothing a rattle can can't sort out!

Doghouse my future mother in law has just purchased a Honda 4x4 for a similar reason. Her back is shot so it's ideal to help her get in and our with ease. The dog will be in for one hell of a surprise when it jumps for the boot though!

If it works it certainly should be. We might even manage *gasp* weekends on *whispers* h o l i d a y.

Made their minds up about 4x4 drivers? What are the common thoughts on 4x4 drivers?

I drive a 4x4 everytime it's snowed I've pulled buses up hills, cars out of ditches, and even took a group of very cold people stood at a bus stop into town because there was no way that bus was getting to their little village bless their optimistic ideas. I also regularly (even though as a lass you need to be careful) stop if I see a classic car broken down and one time a cyclist who'd broken his chain and dropped him off at a pub with phone signal so his friend could come and get him.

I use it to recover the fire engines and other exhibits I work with. You just can't do that with a Peugeot 206!

Oh; and because this is a gardening forum; I can get 2 ton of well rotted horse muck in the back. Always useful. ;)

*SQUEALS* Oh congratulations Wonky that sounds brilliant!!

Well done you. I'm properly chuffed.

Partner has gone off for a boys day out (he did at least make me tea in bed) and I'm just waiting for the hound to settle before I think about breakfast. I do wish my allergies weren't so food related because a weatherspoon breakfast would be ideal right now. No washing up and if you time it right; no fussing for lunch either.

I have some work news too: September starts my working Monday - Friday and only working the occasional weekend. See that word OCCASIONAL. My poor partner will be sick of the sight of me!

Oooh Fairy they do look fun!

Oh Wonky what have you been up too??? I have so many ideas rushing through my head. 

Well today I was at an event in Doncaster. Nearly didn't make it there when a police car pulled out in front of me. Oops! They were at the time hunting a very dangerous person so I did forgive them. But as I was in a police riot van being tailed closely by a fire engine I did pray a little when we all somehow missed each other. Imagine the paperwork.

I have now dried out (almost swam back it was so bad), donned my onsie, and checked my emails to find that I have a surprise Monday off! What to do??
