Don't know why I said ironing was a lazy day thing as I hate ironing.  Watching the film will be my reward for doing it though.  Got as far as putting the ironing board up ...............

Still raining hard and now darker than when I got up and having to put the lights on to see where I'm going.

I thought you were joking Lily Pilly about the sun as it has been raining all night and it is still raining now.  Walk cancelled with my friends so will have a lazy day ironing and planning to watch the Fred Astaire film this afternoon.  You are a busy lot doing your Christmas cooking - I am one of those who does it at the last minute.  Have a good lunch with your sisters LP.  

Hope the rain doesn't come your way Chicky to spoil the fireworks.

Just like Zoomer I like the smell of petrol.  As a child I went round sniffing exhausts until my Mum caught me and read me the riot act.  The smell of a greenhouse with the tomatoes and on a hot day after a rain shower on tarmac.  Oh, and leather school satchels and the smell of a new car (haven't smelt that for long enough!

Kef - I use cheap plastic mini greenhouses.  I have got three of various sizes and when they are all up in a row it looks like a small village.

Oh dear.  My kitchen is 41 years old - an original Hygena QA.  We are thinking of opening to the public for viewing this ancient piece of history.  In an ideal world I would like a Shaker style kitchen.  We also have a lurid pink bathroom suit as an added attraction.

Do you know where your pets are tonight?

Lily Pilly - I hope your doggie has settled down now.  Dogs seem to be ultra sensitive to loud bangs.  As Lesley says, try to act as if it a normal occurrence and not make a fuss.  Our two cats are 'cat napping' but their ears are twitching at the bangs.
