I'll have the lemon and passionfruit please! 

Very kind of you to share fidget 

Disappeared for me too Dove. No storm here though thankfully.

lily- that's what passes for humour in Verdun's strange little Cornish world....

we just try and keep him happy by throwing him the odd bun or two. 

(he meant 'resent'!)

KEF- steady on...buffing feet sounds a bit rude.  I used to use the electric sander on mine when I did a lot of walking. Far better than those fancy things from the chemist!

Fidget- what's in the Godfather truffle?  Is it Marlon Brandy..... 

Serious! Really

My oldest daughter is obsessed with Marvel superheroes..

Reggie Perrin...brilliant.....I didn't get where I am today...

Kojak. Splendid!

I bet Verdun remembers writing with chalk on a slate at school 

Beware of companies offering vouchers and cash back.

I'm very cynical about all companies nowadays which saddens me. I think so many of them rely on people simply not checking receipts /statements etc and they get away with murder. They just hope you'll not bother, or they fob you off  in the hope that you'll get fed up. 

Glad you got a good result Tina

Think she puts out peanuts as well. Ask her later on hello forkers thread - she's sure to see it. Think the specialist food is little biscuits.

Mmmm- I'll just take a couple fidget- to save coming back. It would be rude not to after all...

Might make scones this week. 

Did the roulade have lots of cream? Raspberry meringue roulades are particularly splendid.

What an exciting life you lead KEF! Almost as thrilling as mine 

Got any gravy tonight?

Not milk - just water. They like cat food but I'd be wary of leaving that out in case the local tabbies just turned up!. You can get special food  from garden centres. Dove recommended it and I noticed my local one had it. She leaves a few raisins and banana chips out too.

Waiting for dinner but made the mistake of reading the last few posts first...any buns left fidget? 

Don't let Verd have any- he's probably been scoffing doughnuts all day....

Dry for a bit this afternoon so more woodworking done and a little painting so might get more planting done tomorrow weather permitting. 

My messages are all of a flutter too but I seem to be able to send. You could send one to Daniel - in case they're not aware lily - and if you say you can't receive, he'll post on a thread to update

Verd -my EV is in a ridiculously small pot as I had nothing else at the time but it has been well fed and watered and the roots shaded in that hot weather by other plants. I might even get it in today as it has miraculously cleared up - hurray!!
