And following up in the rear..........

Morning everyone. Hope all the sickly ones are feeling a little better today.  Must have caught the 'dream' bug as mine was about overflowing ponds! Daft or what. Think I ought to give my pond a bit of a clean today and downsize the lilly. Will be going out suitable attired so no nasties can feed off me. That is as long as the promised sun shines. Otherwise, it's settee and book.

I love contemplating. Have a list of all the things I have contemplated doing. Have made a start with the 'touching up' painting and the bathroom is next for a small makeover. All I need is to get myself motivated.

Correction to my post on disposal of loft hoarding, duvets and curtains went on Freecycle not recycled.

Lily, the VHS tapes would be taken by a company in Bristol. They will accept 100 but you have to get them there!  Anyone happen to be going that way!!?

Best get brekkie. Yes, FG, the usual.

Pam, my pond does that, athough i's nowhere near the size of yours and could be a totally different problem.  Mine is, I'm told, due to the water table. My garden, along with adjoining neighbour, is the lowest of 10 houses. Excessive rain causes the lining to rise and the sides to bulge.  First time it happened, kept draining some water out and was puzzled when the pond remained the same level.  Now don't bother and just make sure fish are safe.  Having looked again at your picture, that's probably no help at all!

Latest on my loft clearance!!  2 large boxes and 2 large plastic bags of clothes, nick-nacks to Charity and 2 almost new duvets and 3 sets of curtains to recycling. Numerous large empty cardboard boxes flattened and taken by Council. Can now walk about a bit up there!  Found some of my treasures, shawl given to me 42 years ago, christening robe and cape, some happy cards, some sad ones so a few tears shed. Also a teething ring with a silver pendant on it.  On Dickinson's Real Deal the other day, one was purchased for £100.  Expect mine's worthless. Still have a long way to go!

Did find somewhere to send old VHS tapes, but you have to pay the carriage yourself. Am going to see how much it would cost.

I've been twiddling my thumbs today too MrsG.  Got to Son's house, which is only down the road and they had gone out!!  Blooming cheek.  So, no cuddles and had to have a Crunchie for consolation.  Did do the eggshell topcoat on my skirting and that's about it.  Have spent the rest of the day on here, sending e-mails to Council about non road sweeping and trying to find a small mixer for Granddaughter who wants one for her birthday. Enjoys making cakes, etc. Found a nice little one on Tesco website so am about to order it. There's a method in my madness!!

That's 60 more than me Puncdoc.  I claim the booby prize.

MrsG.  What is all this talk of gardening?  Thought you were going to be my fairweather buddie.  Beginning to feel like Tina Nomates.

FG, is there a prize for the person who orders the least bulbs?

Morning all.  Before you all fall off your seats, I have seen every hour of the clock and ached so much thought it better to get up. Miserable day and either the cat or fox have managed to knock the fish food over, lids come off and it is now wet!  Not a good start to the day.

Sorry to hear you are feeling poorly Dove. Does have its compensations.

Thanks all those who admired my little sweetie.  Going to see her in a while for a cuddle and loads of kisses.  She doesn't know that yet.  Son, with his beard, etc, gave her a rash as he was kissing her so much, so it had to go!

Lovely story about your MIL Gilly.  I bet the gasman felt a right wally.

Miserable here today, not that I intended venturing into the garden.  Will be glad when I've finished the penicillin as I am sure it is making me feel under par and is causing me problems.  Never mind, only 3 more to go.  Just tried to put my rings back on, but not able to do so yet.

Oh, by the way, what's sunrise?

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening everyone

Oh, MrsG, how much port went in to that meal? Will probably find out later.

Yes, that is Eva.  That was her first smile at Grandma and, no, it wasn't wind as after having 4 children, I can tell the difference.  Son is a bit put out because she cries a lot!  Was expecting her to be the same as his 18 year old who truly never cried. Never known such a placid baby and he's the same now.

Back to more important things, good to have you back Puncdoc and I hope you keep making progress.  Know what it's like, as many here do, so keep coming back and sharing with us.

After being a domestic goddess yesterday, when everything in sight was hoovered, dusted and cleaned,  today I got the paintbrush out and did a bit of 'touching up'.   Top coat tomorrow.  As most of it was the skirting board in the hallway, you would have to get on your hands and knees to see the bodged job. 

Now going to watch the very last episode of Breaking Bad.  Do hope it's not a let down.
