Everything about that pic is just so Norris. The face, the colour, the markings, the fuzzy belly that i love to rub, and yes, even the pose. It's her down to a T.
No idea how cold it is here Hazel, still snug under the duvet 😁. Have a good babby squishing time today.
Have got an error & re-load whilst trying to type this post. Those weekend gremlins need a kick 👢 . get me big boots

Morning all .
Had to do a double take at this mornings cat photo it's a Norris for sure.
Glad you're not dead Pansy 👍.
Got a bad head myself this morning... self inflicted
Keep scrolling back up, that pic is the spit.

Nick Kershaw? He was big in the eighties MU.

Drat, I wasn't keen on the taste. Not it .
If I was a Scooby door character it would have to be Velma .
For the eyesight, not the brains .
I'll have a look in my seed box Chey, to see what else might I have for you next week. You can pm me your address and I'll pop them in the post .

I forget the name now LB, but I posted a pic of the plants vs a 500ml bottle of evian for Chey to see for size last summer, cherry tom size I reckon.
I do have cucamelon seeds too Chey, need extra effort though for those. They went down a storm with T2 friends, but it wasn't keen on the taste.
Music industry folk can be very inward and narcissistic MU. Fat Baby for example

Anyone want a slice of pound-bakery carrot cake? Courtesy of T2, cause I like it 😁.
Chey, I've still got seeds for that windowsill size tomato plant if you want some.

Sorry I dropped off into the ether for a bit there. Got caught up chatting with OH 😊
Wow! I'm not very good at deep conversational subjects. Better change it then .
RUNNY : schedule me in for an unbirthday on a date of your choosing.
Any day will do, nice weather preferred .
Ha ha ha . I almost got away with it, you pesky kids .
Bet that's shut it down 😂

Cross posted but. Tried pits once LB, many moons ago.
Ouch!..... Went back to bic
Gnigh Chey . Enjoy your show 📺

Oh Sunny, my mum loved her fur coats/jackets (glamorous in her eyes). Made me shudder to look in her wardrobe as a teenager. Yours was a sensible solution to getting rid. Better that someone had the benefit of warmth than bin them 👍.
I grew out of children's sizes around the age of eleven .

I epilate LB, wasn't sure if my increasing baldness was due to ripping them out or part of the aging process?
Another weird thing is that my eyebrows are getting curlier. What's all that about?

*So this is where it ends up when Rubee's hubby wants new wardrobes, is it? . (*sorry MU )
I've had a good chuckle reading back 😆. Count me in on team jeans & jumpers.
Sunny, I'm with you on the 16 to 26 thing. Still have party clothes in the wardrobe though, my old togs go out clubbing more than me . There is a C&A silk jacket that made an appearance at a retro 80's birthday party last year, and a size 10 slinky black top that went clubbing in town last month. Vintage clothing is cool now

Oh Rubee , fancy him keeping schtum for thirty years. There's devotion for you 💘. Hope the cough improves. Have you a linctus to coat your throat?
05 Jan 2018 10:06
You're right too Ian . No point labouring over a patch you won't use.
My parents have been gradually reducing their lawn over a number of years, finally getting rid of the last square in one fell swoop last summer. No more mowing, spiking, raking etc. They love it 👍
Wise words from Frank (as always), when he says "Each to their own...a garden is built as we wish to use it".

Am I the only person who's never been to Bluewater or Trafford Centre? I've never been to an Ikea eitherSee original post
Count your blessings Dove. I've only done one of the three you mention (Trafford), and that was more than enough to put me off shopping for life 😆😆😆

I dared to mention dismantling the tree yesterday. Got a big fat "NO! Stick with tradition!" ..... Hmpf 😒
Managed to keep the bits & bobs to a minimum this year though, no mantelpiece garland, no window dressings, and only one of the three nativity sets came out of its box 😁
05 Jan 2018 09:33
Is it this one GD?
I don't have one, but have had a glass table with suckers before. Needed a bit of wiggling and jiggling to get the best fit, and that was on a flat surface. Have you tried moving the suckers around different areas of the poppy petals?
05 Jan 2018 09:10
Morning Fedge and LB.
Up and about ✅
Alert and ready for the day ❔
Wrestling the tree back in it's box is a right PITA

Morning all . Glad you got the pipes fixed Joyce, and hope you're snuggled back in the magic bed, catching up with some extra zeds 😴💤💤💤.

Hi Runny . Oh yes, Shutter Island gets a 10/10 from me too 👍.
Any first time watchers must avoid any spoilers prior to viewing.
You have been warned .

It's a bit similar to this image (minus the barbed wire) .
Gives you a better idea of the size though. I have one at the bottom, topped with a 5'x6' wooden fence panel, making it 6'x6' overall.
