Morning all


Hard to think a week a go I was just waking up from a glamerous evening my ball gown hanging on the wardrobe, content in the knowledge we'd raised TWENTY ONE THOUSAND POUNDS.

Oh wait. Ball gown is still hanging up on the wardrobe. Must get that washed!!

His lordship has joined in with the sneezing; so any hopes of him looking after me or at least the dog....

Punk you can say whatever you need on this forum. You know we understand.

I'm curled up in bed with the hound and The Goon Show on the radio. Not one for the likes of Children in Need. 

Oh course the nose tap has been turned on so laying down is proving tricky. It's grim! And to make things worse the dog keeps pinching my tissues. Ewwww!!

Wonky, if you're looking in, hope you feel better soon

Clari, can you move to another bed or sofa to reduce the risk of the cold being passed on?

Put Reggie in the middle of the bed

See original post

 Joyce: alas the other bedroom is more of a work room right now as renovations continue. I could get the camp bed out but it's not comfortable.

As for Reggie: I keep trying to sneak him in but is lordship notices.

Nanny Beach - Fox poo ๐Ÿ’ฉ on dogs ๐Ÿ• , don’t have a dog but b-in- law does a border collier and she is for ever managing to find Fox poo , you can buy something from pet shops called “Poo Off “ which sort of dissolves it so you need to wear rubber gloves ๐Ÿงค 

Been Christmas shopping in Lincoln with o/h today , gone surprisingly well , of to Meadow Hall next week , near Sheffield a very large indoor place , at least it is under cover , lots of coffee stops and a restaurants 

See original post

 I wish you luck at Meadowhell (esp. now there's an Ikea next door). It's my idea of torture!

Clari, you've been attacked on two fronts ... not only has your OH got a really bad cold, but Wonky's been off work with a heavy cold and fever too ... you didn't stand much chance of avoiding it 

See original post

 Wonky I thought we were almost sister's how dare you sneakily cough on my pillow when I'm not looking!!

Oooh fish super sounds lovely. I'm not sure what we're having yet. The Land Rover wiring loomed all its associated electrics are currently filling the kitchen so space is a little limited.

Mind you so is motivation.

His lordship has had a really bad cold recently and it's making it's way to my side of the bed. I'm trying my best to keep it at bay but I think I'm on a loosing battle. 

iPod issue. Nowt to do with gardening.

What make and I'll ask around my learned friends.

Morning all.

Had to get new tyres on my car yesterday; couldn't believe how much the bloke treated me like an uneducated driver.

He wasn't happy because if ordered in a specific brand and make "these aren't safe" and then tells me parts on my car need fixing.

Well: you can imagine.

"Oh don't worry" says I. "I use this tyre on my race car: they are far superior in the wet to the brand you've tried to sell me and under heavy braking around corners they really won't let go. If they keep me in the track all out lifting the rear wheel maximum torque and minimum margin for error I'm fully confident they'll keep me safe going to Tesco". 

As for the car parts that needed replacing... Well let's save that story for another time and just say his boss came out the office laughing.
