Morning all. Forgot to turn the alarm off so laying in bed waiting for his lordship to realise I need tea.

I have scrubbed some places, vacuumed others, done the big shop, stressed about finding the right gift for someone who hates gifts, and am back laying on the bed trying to decide what to wear tonight when we all go out for a meal. I've been putting off buying new clothes for a few years now. The wardrobe is getting desperate! It's currently a toss up between jeans and the shirt or rather loud purple ball gown.

Anyone for a mug of tea?

How do you fail to notice you're missing cake??

Muddle; he's not one for gifts (hates them truth be told) but in the staff room I'm always hearing him chuntering about only wanting half a mug of tea which people seem incapable of making. So he's a mug with a very careful (and almost straight) line painted on by myself to help indicate to people where to aim for. The mug I found was reduced to £1.50 (was £5.... for a mug!!) but when you add the card £2.00, paper £1.50, ribbon £2.99, bag £1.00   .... my silly personalised gift is suddenly quite cheap looking!

Endless tea. I like your other half already!!

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!
