Did you mean a 'thin' thong or  a 'thing' thong Steve.. was wondering if you'd bitten your tongue... 


That's just made me giggle. I read it as though he was saying *sing song* with a numb tongue 

Weekend work for me, so I'll be quiet for a couple of days, enjoy your holiday muchly Hosta, soak away and come home safe

Morning Dove, those to come, and evening Pat 

It's sad when a tree has to come down, but the new space is exciting 

Spin class this morning, then it's tiling again...all day.  I'm aching a bit and the work is grotty but it won't do itself 

Wish I had Fairy's wand

A hot other man Hosta, all sweaty pecks and six pack  in my kitchen

Oh Lily, I hope your daughter was okay 

Hosta, ain't she a star? 

Thanks Dove dear, you are queen of the pictures and I'll take my bubbles both ways thanks 

Gertie, I have a man  but he works 60hrs a week plus private work and he has residual CFS, so I committed myself to the mammoth task of redecorating the house as a thank you, he is funding these decorating adventures after all 

I could get someone in but I like the challenge 

Steve, what a great lawn you have  it's gorgeous

Good news Runny  on son's wellbeing and the case, just hope there's more than a fine.

My son's court case involved just one of the 5 who mugged him, identified by the boot print he kindly left on my son's back. Worst part is that the courts fine those who have nothing, don't pay/can't pay and my son ends up stumping the bills for dental work, he lost teeth to their boots.  It still upsets me even though it was a decade ago...They are always our babies

Great news hubby is home Hosta, think of all the snuggles on tap 

I'm in the bath again  been tiling since early morning but I'm slow and whilst I can cut the best fit around corners /sockets, I'm rubbish at putting them on the wall. Hubby had to rescue me, pull them all off, scrape clean, regrout and put them on flat. He was my hero today, especially after I had banned him from tiling because his eyes don't get the best fit.

So, one wall now almost finished, I really am slow. ..and filthy 

I wish they did a smiley with bubbles

Morning all, evening Pat, sad news indeed Pat 

Runny, I know exactly what you're going through. My eldest was mugged on his way home from a party when he was a teenager. They were no dogs but it was 5 against one and my son is not the fighting kind 

When I first saw him, my heart was torn apart, these are our children! Good people, good souls. Brave as you say 

My son was saved by someone stopping in their car, or it could have been fatal. He has since made a full recovery with minor issues like dental work. I pray for your son's full recovery, I feel sorry for the misguided dogs. Who can truly understand what goes through their minds? 

PS Get well soon KEF

Fairy,  you are inspirational! 

Really, I mean it. I have the habit of being glass half empty and there you are, truly appreciating the fierce beauty on your doorstep. 

I should take the time to appreciate my own doorstep more

Evening all 

Fairy, I often feel sorry for you and your poo weather , I'll give you a review of my new water dispenser when I've got it up and running...

Dove, I'm thinking of that famous picture in the 80's or 90's of the tennis girl in the short skirt, scratching her bum, any resemblance? 

Chicky, lovely to hear good news and have a plan, Christmas will mean more this year 

Windy here, no damage done or seen around. ..hope everyone stays safe 

Only sat down an hour ago, after spin class, painting kitchen walls, vets appointment and then home for second coat on walls 

Phew, so glad that's done, now for the difficult bit  tiling

Morning Hosta,  Dove and all to come 

LilyP what an exquisite photo, Moscow truly is stunning though it looks a bit cold and as you say, a terrible weekend to be travelling through Paris! 

Have a nice time if you can Edd,  know what you mean about being too posh, I love culture but hate the pretence that goes with it  include weddings and christening in there as well 

Busy day today. Gym, decorating and Vets this afternoon. OH has treated himself to one of those new water heating thingys, it holds 3 litres, boils one cup at a time and comes with water filter ofc. Had to juggle kitchen appliances to fit it in but now the kettle is out and so is the teapot! 

Modern times eh?
