Good morning everyone.

Weather pretty poor here in Lincoln today. Cold and wet, though not the heavy rain that was forecast as yet. Have battened down the hatches in readiness.

Good morning all

Have just been reading Daily mirror article on " Sorry I haven't a clue" radio programme. some little gems from the past.

Reindeer. - A Michael Winner weather forecast.

Ovaltine - a fat adolescent.

Pastiche - What Sean Connery eats in Cornwall.

Unfettered -. Without Greek cheese.

The list goes on, made me smile on this horrible morning..

Becks - Hope Jess is feeling better. Maggots in the middle of the night,  sounds like a horror movie.

My OH says he can't cook, I don't think I could stand the mess he would make, he would probably set the kitchen on fire, he is the most untidy worker, but gets the job done. He spends most of his time looking for tools as he has forgotten where he has left them.

I think feeling a bit jaded yesterday was due to the flu jab I had on Friday,- yes it's that time again folks,- at least that's what I think.

Plebs, I like that word, it sounds like it's meaning, if you know what I mean.What is the requirements to join the club?

Have a good day, although the weather is dreadful.

Hi everyone.

Feeling a little jaded today after last nights meal, ate too much, but as I only had 1 glass of white vino, I can't blame that. must be the late night.

Lots of beautiful pics, I love roses, but some of mine have not done very well this year.

I know what you mean about actors not matching up to your expectations. but some who are not what you would call  handsome or good looking just have that certain something.

Cold east wind here today, but at the moment dry, so I will be snuggling up on the sofa and watching some tv.

Cat feeding duties completed.

Roast Lamb for evening meal tonight, with usual accompaniments

Hi everyone.

Cold and getting more overcast, but as yet no rain today. Easterly wind according to the weather vane, straight from the continent over the North Sea, so not good.

Roast Lamb with all the bits and bobs for evening meal tonight.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday,

Frank, it's supposed to be a day of rest

Kate, knowing daughters OH there wont be a crumb left, but if there is it will be in your cyberlocker pronto

Becks, Italy is also my absolute fav for holidays, just love it, the food, the style, architecture, not to mention the sunshine, I was going to say men, but thought better of it although Italian men are a bit on the short side. No offence intended to any Italian men who read this forum.

Just off to feed the Fleur the cat, as I have said, rather posh.

Will catch up tomorrow.

Hi everyone.

Beautiful day here today, warm and sunny after a cool start, not such a  good forecast for tomorrow, then it's downhill for Monday

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Hi everyone.

Geoff, the thought of your neighbour is enough to put you off your cake.

Lovely pics of all the flowers. You all seem on very good form today.

I have been in the garden for a while today, tidying up the borders, decided to leave cosmos for now as they were covered in bees.

Made lasagna for evening meal . Daughter and partner are coming for an Italian themed meal. Starting with antipasti, olives, mozzarella etc, then lasagna with salad and garlic bread, followed by a lemon concoction with fresh raspberries and almond biscuits.Phew it's taken me nearly all blooming day to get it ready, and they'll demolish it in a few minutes, but I'll be alright after a few glasses of vino.

I'm on cat feeding duties this weekend for SIL who lives in the next village, hope she is ok,the cat that is, so I have got to go and feed her and put her in for the night, I'm always on edge until SIL gets back in case anything should happen to her, she's a pedigree Ragdoll cat.

Just before I came in there was a flypast of 14 light aeroplanes going towards RAF Waddington, must have known I was at home

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Frank, that was fantastic, so poignant. people didn't realise how affected children could be by such changes in those days. Have you ever thought about writing a book or perhaps you have already done so. Most children today don't know they are born, they have every advantage and some of them just waste their time and chances, not all I hasten to add.

Thanks for sharing those memories with us, I feel quite emotional,

Good morning all.

Damp and overcast at the moment but not cold. Our weather thing says light rain, that will do for me, we could do with it, very dry down here in Lincolnshire.

I haven't seem any House Martins or Swallows for a couple of days, I think they have finally gone.

I love to see the geese and hear them as they fly over, as you say Frank a wonderful sight.

Have a good day.

Yes Frank I would be very interested. I was born at the end of the war so have no recollection of war time, I only know what I have been told by my parents, grandparents and what I have learnt from books, tv etc. I wish I had asked more questions at the time when I could have got personal answers.Too late now, as my Mum is 99 and can remember some things but gets a bit confused, she is the only family member who is still with us that lived as an adult through the war..

I didn't realise we imported so much food, I wonder what the percentage of imports is now?
