Any chance of a coffee! 

See original post

 The only coffee we have around here is that cheap jar for the builders but if you're willing to chance it... (might taste of mud).

Morning all.

Up at midnight when his lordship walks in.

Up again at 03:00 because something spooked the dog

Up again at 05:30 because the dog needs to go out

It's not 07:40 I haven't managed to get much sleep between now and 06:00 as his lordship is snoring something terrible. Dog is dead to the world however! 

Anyone for a really big mug of tea?

Reggie gets restless when he's tired and wants to go to bed. I wanted to try and keep him awake til his lordship got home to avoid the midnight manic barking and relating chaos.

Reggie didn't like this idea. He spent half an hour carefully bringing me pillows off the bed until he got his wish! 

He's now tucked up next to me on the freshly laundered sheets strategically dumping his stray fur on "daddies" pillows.

Someone please tell me babies are less hard work than him!! 

Sweet dreams everyone!

Giving Wonkys age away there Dove!

I remember out Nintendo 64. My grandmother (prim and proper and generally not into gadgets etc.) watched us playing the duck shooting game then took the plastic gun and without ever touching it before ABSOLUTELY NAILED IT. As in top score not a duck survived.

Always wondered where she had learnt to shoot!

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.

Most of us are of an age when even our children have long since finished Uni.

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.
