HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all G'day Pat

Fingers very crossed that DD gets better news today ((hugs))

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 16/10/2015 at 21:10

Trying to stay awake here 'cos I'll have to pick OH up from the station in about half an hour so I thought I'd noodle on here with you lot while I watch HIGNFY.

Jo, I think Wonky might need a bandage after


 The flat is lovely - they've been with that landlord for a long while now and they know not to have great expectations - it will all get done eventually but he is quite 'economical' so tradesmen don't give his work priority

Big dead tree

If it falls to the north a neighbour won't have a garage left.

If it falls to the east it will fall on a neighbouring house.

If it falls to the west  it will fall on our house.

If it falls to the south it will be falling uphill ... think that's unlikely

It's going to cost £500 to have it taken down, taken away and get the stump ground out.  It's a big tree

Right - Fairy's envelope is in the postbox - definitely!  I've filled the car with petrol so I can pick OH up from the station this evening ... and the toast that I've just made to test out the new toaster has no calories whatsoever - how can it have?  It's just a trial run

It's my birthday

 Hope you had a brilliant birthday Lulu

Oooh  'eck!!!  The other day I told Fairy her envelope was in the post - I thought it was - I'd walked down to the post box and posted several envelopes, but .................... when I unpacked my shopping just now from my big bag guess what I found

SORRY FAIRY!!!!!!!!!!!  I'll post it this afternoon - promise!!!  but I've missed today's collection

On the plus side - at last I've bought a new toaster - hope OH likes it - in the end I went for a two slot Dualit (cream colour).  I'm fed up with buying cheapies that die just after the guarantee runs out.  I got this one from John Lewis so it's got a 2 year guarantee so fingers crossed. 

Big dead tree

When our big tree is taken down I want to keep one of the boughs as a feature in the new bed - horizontally - gently rotting down and providing a home for bugs and beetles, nooks and crannies for plants and mosses, and something for climbers to scramble over

Hi What Verdun said was fine. I should've put my brain in gear. More coffee should've been taken. Can we drop it now? I'm sure that would suit Snow . I'm in Costa now, waiting for bus home so on phone.

HELLO FORKERS!

Please folks - if Snow wants me or anyone else to know who they are I'm sure he or she will contact us.  It was thoughtless of me to ask - there are many reasons why someone may change their name.
