Morning all! Just nipping in to see what fun and frollicks happens over here.

PF: You can get a spray than numbs your throat. It doesn't leaving a coating like the gels do but I find it brilliant for ulcers because I have that terrible habit not being unable to stop poking anything that hurts.

Morning all.

Am I the only person who's never heard of Tom Petty? The music scene in France isn't the same as in England.

Got up late this morning, been reading in bed. A friend lent me a book called "The Dry", a whodunnit. Hard to put down.

Sun is shining, shall do some weeding.

See original post

 I dont know who / what Tom Petty is either BL. But since he /probably/ doesn't know who I am In not too worried.

We got off the ferry that connects Padstow to Rock a couple of years ago and a dog lifted it's leg and pee'd down my friend's leg. The owner didn't even apologise, unbelievable  .

See original post

 Maybe it's because I'm a hyper vigilant dog owner because

a) he's a big scary German Shepherd who we adopted knowing he wasn't perfect and probably never will be

b) he's a complete mummies boy 

But you'd be amazed how SOME owners have no awareness of what their dog is up too even if it's on a lead. I won't start a holier than thou tale of the things I've seen because some of us might be wanting to enjoy brunch.

I spent as long as I could outside watching the moon. My hound shaped hot water bottle has sone serious warming up of me to do.

FYI chances are they'll just pee up the fence instead.

Evening all. Decided to call in tomorrow as time off to use up some of those hours worked. Means I can go and stock the dog freezer up (preparing his special meals is five hour affair every 3 weeks), give him a bath, get all the washing done, bake a cake, tidy the freezer, cut tge lawn and generally blitz ready for the return of his master...

... Maybe I'll go to work  Seems the easiest option!

Morning all. It's looking very windy outside and its not inspiring me to want  to leave my nice warm bed.

My faithful hound didn't move from my side all night; he's only meant to sleep on the bed on a weekend or when my partner is out but I think perhaps when he's away for a week  I might have to get him spend an occasional night on his own like a big brave dog.

I miss being able to stretch out!

Trainers I reckon Clari! 

See original post

Might be the safest way. My current pair are in danger of being a little more aerated than is best suited for long distance walks. 

Get your woolie hats at the ready Wonky. I've noticed on our evening stroll it was definately biting around the edges.

Evening one and all. 

The annual heating-going-on chat always makes me laugh. We have just had a new 'thingy' installed so we can remotely change the temperature in every room etc, and it has already caused 'debate'. I was brought up on the 'put a jumper on' school of thought,  although my Mum always opened the kitchen window when cooking even when heating on. My OH is of the 'a house should be warm enough to wear a T-shirt' brigade. I think we discussed the minefield of sharing a bed with someone with different climate control requirements before too! 

Hope everyone is ok - and is warm enough, by way of heating,fire, jumpers or animal.

See original post

 My parents would put the heating on as a special treat when visitors came round. I always wondered what they must have thought at the pile of thick blankets on the spare chair that we'd normally be huddled up in. It was only after I left home I found out that my parents rooms were so much warmer than anywhere else in the house! I remember putting my school clothes in a pillowcase in the bed so I could get changed without leaving the duvet.

Now my partner is the type of person who is in a t shirt in three foot of snow so I am back under my blankets! 16'C in the lounge right now apparently.

Funny though I feel the cold; I have to have the window in the bedroom open even when it's bitter out.

Well done Hosta   Best to leave the bottom corner ... it was a bit boggy when we were there wasn't it?  Don't want you getting stuck down there and having to send for the neighbour and his tractor to tow you out 

Check the industrial action plans on the railways before you book Clari!!!

 Hmm... maybe a new pair of trainers instead? The buses around here are scary and with planes being a bit... unreliable. 😑
