M-U and T'Bird, I have got three Val McDermid books still to be read but as I may use the titles in a future Puzzle I am not going to give you their titles


See original post

 Oooh - you little tease LB!! 


Lily and Harry could be related couldn't they? - pretty little cat.  I notice Lily doesn't have a little moustache like H does - just as well if she's a girl - she'd be forever waxing it...


Glad you're feeling a bit better for a bit of a sleep Joyce -  I prescribe a drop more single malt for you tonight (just to ease your throat of course)


Sorry to hear yet more people are having difficulties posting on the forum. Slightly older iPads which can't be updated to the latest operating system seem to be particularly problematic (I fall into that camp) but there also seems to be problems with other tablet devices.


I think desktop / laptop computers might be ok. 


Apparently there's not much the tech team can do about it. They seem to be struggling to provide an interactive website which works well across the myriad of devices out there.

Oooh thanks M-U - I need to get that from the library


I really like Val McDermid's books - but only the Tony Hill / Carol Jordan ones and some of the 'one offs'. Not keen on the Lindsay Gordon and Kate Brannigan series - but the others are really good page turners!

Morning


Sorry to hear so many of our number are still in the Land of Lurgy. Hope yours is just a cold Joyce - you have enough on your plate without being really poorly as well.


It is cold here isn't it Wonky? But I noticed yesterday that my snowdrops were up (if not out) and I think it's only 6 weeks on Saturday until the clocks go forward so we are starting to emerge from the depths of winter - if only the weather forecast would play ball too!


Many domestic duties to attend to - but first a visit to the bottle bank to a make a very (un)healthy deposit...

Morning


Quiet on here today - you must all be very busy - as I should be.


Ironing to put away then off to the bottle bank to make a very (un)healthy deposit


Hope you've just got a bad cold Joyce and feel much better soon.

LB - Harry is like his mum and doesn't take a good photo  - he usually looks dead grumpy. But I found this one of him asleep which makes him look quite cute...



M-U - we didn't go (were never intending to go) to Glencoe. That was just me having a brain f*rt. After Portsoy we went to Glenmore just outside Aviemore for a couple of days and then home via Glasgow. Would have been lovely to join you for a cuppa. Maybe next time we're up that way Promise not to T-bone you in the SM!

Afternoon


We're back from the wilds of Scotland  Got home late Sunday and have been busy since then cleaning the van, washing clothes and all that other boring stuff you have to do before you feel properly 'Home'.


We had a lovely time in a beautiful part of the world. Far more familiar with the west coast and highlands but this made a very nice change and we've already decided to return before too long - still lots of places to see. Glad we set off home on Saturday. We saw a bit of snow on Sunday morning but it looks as though it was worse yesterday.


Congratulations on the maths Doc. I did maths to A Level & really enjoy tackling number / logic puzzles. Can't remember how to do calculus but graphs and basic algebra rock my boat. Really need to get a life...


Does anybody know why we do mathematics (plural) and arithmetic (singular). Really bugs me when Americans say things like "You do the math" (singular) - but logically they are correct (I think)

Afternoon Ladies

We had a lovely time. Beautiful part of the world you live in M-U.

You've all been very chatty and nostalgic! Does anybody, anywhere eat jelly babies feet first? - definitely off with their heads for me And I eat Cadbury Cream eggs in the same disgusting way I eat a walnut whip. Bite the top off. Tongue inside to lick a bit of filling out then little finger to excavate the rest before munching the remainder of the shell. 


Hazel - Hope things are ok with your daughter - worrying time for you.


Hope all poorly peeps feel better soon.
