Afternoon everyone

At 8am  our next door neighbour called to say all the drains were blocked  - we are in the middle of a run of 3 houses . Barry and our neighbour then had a real job of removing one of the drain covers - hasn't been moved for donkeys years  3 hours later - after using drain rods etc. the drains are now o.k

This afternoon we are having the boiler and fire serviced - it was a valve that went wrong last week.

Sorry to hear about your chicken ppam

Congratulations to all  Great Aunt Lottie

I hope everyone is well and dry this afternoon

Just going back to my knitting - - a camel

Afternoon everyone

It is good to see you Kate

I tried to make some crackers once Becks - just couldn't get the hang of it

The house got a shock today - I did some housework

We have two little people to look after this evening  They will arrive around 6pm  bringing their blow up beds with them  I love their company - we will have lots of nibbles and watch SCD until Tolly gets fed up and wants to watch Humph

Have a  lovely evening

Afternoon everyone

It has been a foul day here weatherwise - raining ,dark,gloomy..........I have finished wrapping all the childrens' christmas presents- just a couple more to arrive

Luckily our nephew is a plumber and heating engineer - he is going to pop in to have a look at the boiler - Barry is convinced it is a valve gone wrong .We have a lovely gas fire in the sitting room and an emersion heater so won't be cold or have no hot water

When our boys were small ( they are 47,45 and 44 now) we didn't have much money and there weren't car boots or ebay - I used to go and pay some money each week in the sports shop in the village  in the run up to Christmas to pay for a football kit for our youngest son who was sport mad. Middle son's music teacher helped us choose a trombone one year and I paid for that weekly till Christmas - this son is now an acoustics consultant  Our eldest son was into bird watching,stargazing and metal detecting so one year had a telescope,another year a metal detector

These days we only buy presents for our Grandchildren and try to keep to a budget - try being the word - I always go over as I love buying them presents

I always get a carrier bag full of goodies from youngest Son and DIL - all bought from car boots  They do buy me something really nice ,too

Congratulations on your news Lottie

I am a great great Aunt

Evening everyone

I have enjoyed reading all the poems - my brain doesn't work well enough to contribute

Washing machine last week - boiler didn't come on this morning  Barry is hoping it is just a new valve needed

I have been wrapping Christmas presents today - no gardening - yukky weather!!!

Many ,many years ago (30 years?) the co-op sold dinner sets that you could buy at a good price piece by piece when you spent so much on your shopping - I am still using some of the plates and bowls
