I own a white landrover defender with a flashing light on it. I can assure you that when you're wearing a high viz vest no one ever questions you! 


Call it gorilla gardening.

I'd just like to point out that some of us are not yet at that stage! 


The lawn has been cut: wasn't entirely dry but dark clouds are appearing and if it's left much longer we're in danger of losing tennis balls to it.

Oh Punkdoc I have to say that part of me is bursting with relief for you. Sometimes a big drink is needed to get things out. You are very talented I'm sure there are other ways you can help others, and get some of the thrill, while your family can relax a little knowing you are safe and will return home.

Morning all! The hound and I are home alone today as his lordship is off with friends going to Silverstone Classic as part of his birthday celebrations. I wasn't invited naturally as it's a boys thing: I'm starting to think he forgot that one of the big reasons we got together was because we both enjoyed classic cars. I'd not have been allowed to have gone anyway because of the hound, shame really because one of our friends is taking his new girlfriend (so much for the boys thing) and I'd have quite liked to have met her.


I'm in charge of keeping a Twitter account up to date with activities of our group (traction engines) at Car Fest North. It looks amazing there (but very wet). They all look like they're having fun though!


Trying to think of somewhere I can go out tomorrow, or Monday at least. The trouble is wirh it being school holidays everywhere is so busy And expensive.


Hoping it stays dry today  although Im not sure it will as I'm on a washing marathon; I may have to put the heating on to dry things.


I actually managed to watch Gardeners world for the first time in ages; must get my pear tree pruned now!

I've just pulled the dog duvet out of his bed to cuddle up on the sofa with him. A friend has just reminded me I have some proof reading to do so will enjoy the warmth of the laptop!

Wonky! There's plenty of space on the sofa if the cats dont mind Reggies stinky feet.


I'm thinking a proper milky hot chocolate might be in order.


See original post

 Is there any other kind of hot chocolate? 


See original post

 I have the Cadburys instant add hot water which is acceptable but sometimes you need to dig into the back of the cupboard and go for the proper stuff that involves carefully simmering the milk on the hob until it *just* reaches that perfect point.

sounds alright to me, Clari. . Raining here, and I've just lit the fire 


See original post

 Apparently we're saving the new log fire for the first frost. Which will be a lovely treat but I haven't been able do any washing all week as it's so wet out and since I was at work last weekend the knicker drawer is in danger of *those* pants coming out!


A gentle fire would do wonders for the back log in the washing basket.

Afternoon all.


His lordship is out for the night, the dog is spark asleep, and the weather is too damp to potter in the garden.


Cuddling with a blanket and hunting a good book it is! :)
