Fairy: not selling. Just sorting out the mortgage. 

Jobs all sorted even got my hair cut (first time this year!) And washing now drying outside: what a nice treat! A few days ago I thought the fair weather was over.

Has anyone seen the vodka jelly shots I was making? I've not seen since the neighbours wee lad came round to borrow some.


Oh dear.

Morning all. 

GUESS WHO HAS A FOUR DAY WEEKEND! Yes admittedly I've not got a single day off in November but to be able to even think about a day off for the past few months has been a joke. So I've cleaned the house and am now.... waiting for the mortgage valuer to show up sometime between 09:00 - 12:00. I'm glad in this modern world we still expect people to loose their morning waiting for a person to show up. What happened to half hour text messages to let you get home? Oh well: it gives me chance to pack the dogs bag ready for visiting the family. I am not sure how one little dog needs so much stuff. No wonder they talk about when you have children needing to get a bigger car! The dog at least doesn't need entertaining on the car journey!

Any suggestions for a nice diabetic gluten free celebration type cake for coffee and nibbles that I could make to take with me?

Mine (in South Yorkshire) have just finished their second crop (very tasty) and I've started to snip off the remaining flowers to give them chance to conserve energy for the winter.

Dove: he only wants them if they're not used for what they were designed for I.e. that lasses poetry-ance.

I did contact him regarding us coming to support Car Fest offering rides, demonstrations etc. No response back.

Morning all. Can't believe you lot are talking about underwear AGAIN.

I've got a film crew in today: a local college course fortunately.  I can't wait to see what they produce.

BUt I've also a long weekend coming up. Hurrah! Almost balances out that I only have one day in November that I haven't filled with events for work. Off to see family for birthdays (not mine) so no gardening alas.

If we were invited to fidgets wedding on Saturday
