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!

Lovely Chicky - 5 minute slice for me please (could manage 10 minutes but wouldn't want you to think I'm greedy)

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. We are far more familiar with the west coast and highlands but this made a very nice change and we've already decided to return - 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.


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.

...since you're offering Dove - t'would be rude to say no.


Glad he's home safe & sound - I suspect Flatters is quite a tough cookie

Quite agree about proportional fines for footballers etc. Have long thought that fines should be expressed as 1, 2 or 3 week's / month's income etc. That way it hurts everybody to the same degree.


Fairy - we were in Ballater yesterday. Thought it was a really nice little town - lots of royal warrants everywhere made for a colourful display. Didn't realise how badly the town was affected in last winter's flooding. Seems several businesses have been struggling since as the tourists have stayed away. We did the touristy thing & bought some Balmoral bread, Scottish gin & some shortbreads. All delicious.


Wonky - so sorry to hear Flatters is AWOL. Hope he's just been shut in somebody's shed for a day or so. Extra big hugs to you - a very worrying time.
