HELLO FORKERS!

Chicky your husband sounds awesome. My parents wouldn't have been able to tell you what exam I had when much less have considered waving me off with breakfast! I'm not entirely sure they were even aware of what studying. 

Last day at work before guess who gets a FULL weekend off!

Rhubarb crumble on the go in the oven: found a lovely little tip of adding a few tablespoons of port when simmering the rhubarb and sugar. Seems to bring out the taste somewhat. I've no idea what kind of rhubarb we have growing in the garden: very tastey though!

I'm not even into my 30s and have never had comment passed about my gardening aside from "you can do ours when you're finished".

Glorious sunshine today so of course its time for work. Didn't manage to get much done yesterday despite working til late so I'm hoping for an injection of motivation if anyone has any spare.

 

Have a lovely day all!

Evening all. Very odd day at work but then we expect no less these days. Just finishing off a few jobs I couldn't do in the office and now settling down to see what I've missed.

Too early for gin?

 

I SAID IS IT TOO EARLY FOR GIN????

Mrs G - congrats on your damp patches.

Morning all!  Watch out for standing water on the roads if you're travelling first thing. 

Mrs.G thanks for the pm : I'll reply after breakfast

Haven't had the television control to watch Chelsea yet: planning a quiet chat up one evening.

Chicky I hope the exams are going well: I'd rather a day with 90 sugar filled children than another exam any day.

Dove: his family are a little above an inflatable padding pool: now could I get a hot tub they'd be all for it! (Actually that sounds bliss...)

Right I'd best get the kettle on. Whose for another mug of hot stuff?

I'm going to be contacting a few places tomorrow (when work restarts) to discuss basic sign language courses that we can run to get all volunteers trained up so that they can at least welcome people and point them in the right direction of the toilets. Hopefully once I have prices I can start looking for funding. Its not looking cheap unfortunately: bit daft when learning it will open up a whole new world and avoid (for me at least) social isolation.

Like my to do list wasn't big enough as it was! Oh well. I think the personal life doesn't really need sleep.

Mrs. G you're going to have to type louder!!

 

His Lordship is inviting his family over for the bank holiday (and my 30th birthday weekend). Guess there goes the idea of spending the weekend in my pants in an inflatable paddling pool drinking cider!
