Hosta, she obviously spotted that you're extremely stylish and thought you'd want to keep up with fashion

Tennis was very good - then I went to the PO and spent a fortune on stamps for Christmas cards - now for a bowl of soup

Right - stumps ground out and everything packed away and gone.  Just time to get to tennis - see you later ... yes Hosta, my knee is strapped up properly

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

I find it's the other way round by quite a large measure - but the good guys are so quiet and self effacing that we don't always notice them. 

How old is your houseplant?

It comes up first on the Talkback Forum 'cos it's been 'pinned' to the top by Admin - that's what the symbol means.

Don't know why it would have come up first on Latest Posts - could you have clicked on Talkback by mistake?

Good morning all  G'day Pat

Sorry to hear we have a poorly Panda - hope you're snuggled down and warm ((hugs))

Man with stump grinder due here this morning so I'm not sure whether I'll get to tennis or not ...

Hosta, just 'cos that knee feels ok don't you go and overdo it - it's just trying to trick you!

LilyP, love Agas - have had several when I've lived out in the countryside, all sorts from the solid fuel to oil then electric - loved them all

Yes BL, you went right past us   Unthank Road was named after a Colonel Unthank, a 19C landlord.  Apparently Unthank Land was land that was settled on without permission of the Baron.  There's also a well-known folk group called The Unthanks.

We had an oven man in last year £60 for a double oven - wonderful.  I wipe it out myself from time to time, but will probably have him back sometime next year.  It's like having a new oven

Well, I'm back from visiting Ma - totally bonkers but happy - they all went out to a garden centre yesterday to see all the Christmas decorations - she doesn't remember going but her conversation was peppered with references to baubles and stars

I nearly couldn't get home - this is the turning to where we live - the road is totally closed and has been all day - I had to take a bit of a  detour

"Show us ya baubles!"
