    Afternoon clickers. It’s been a drear old drizzly/rainy day all day today so I have been catching up on a few jobs. Brought a sofa frame I have in from the garage and gave it a good clean. I need to sell it as it is taking up virtually all the room in the garage which I need for wet weather days like today. Popped to Tesco’s and got a couple…

    Oh Dix, how awful. You were a blummin star though – well done that man, a good neighbour indeed. Sending positive thoughts for Hazel.

    Morning all. It’s a lot quieter out there albeit a bit drizzly which is perfect as I want to finish my book as the new Phillip Pullman book is released tomorrow…sqeeeeeal :lol: No damage after the high winds – I think a beach ball might have gone AWOL but apart from that all is well. MY SIL is having some major building work done and was…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn :-) you’ll have to tell us the new book is like. I didn’t like the last of His Dark Materials. Prawn linguine – mmmmmmmmm :good:

    Afternoon clickers. Looks like the end of the world out there – ominous orange sky and the birds have all gone quiet….gulp. Not much done today – went into Saffron Walden to mooch around the charity shops looking for West German pottery and Swedish glass mainly…nada. Hope everyone affected by Ophelia is OK :run!:

    Hi Karen, the outlaws are in Dublin which is a bit less blowy than the coast, I think (hope). Will ring them in a bit and see how they got on. Thank you for thinking of them, sweetie :rose: :rose: :rose:

    • Ah, sorry Jenn, I thought some of them were over on the west side; you were probably just visiting. :good: Think Dublin isn’t quite as bad. :good: :rose:

    Oh yesh (best Churchill the dog voice) – got to take advantage of the special offers, Sue, then eat them and have to buy them again :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Hi Lynn. Glad you are feeling better – I would have feigned still feeling iffy to get out of Pilates but then I used to bunk off school for PE ;-) :lol:

    Hi Anne. I did gc in the end – well, not a gc gc, more a nursery where all the plants are outside, there are no Xmas nick knacks and no restaurant :lol:

    Morning Jane. It’s the same here. Hope the work goes well.

    Morning cills. I can’t stand bare cupboards – it makes me feel vulnerable :lol: On seeing the Bailey’s on special offer in Tesco’s on Saturday I said to the OH that I will have to clear out a space in the utility room – my usual :fairysaysouch: :oldnosey: :kissme: :haveyoubeengood?: cupboard ;-) Enjoy your day.

    Morning clickers – put your lead boots on if you are one of our northern/western/Welsh/Scottish/Irish clickers, it looks to be a tad blustery where you are :run!: The in-laws are hunkering down and my nephew and nieces are pleased the schools are closed so not everyone is affected badly :lol: Stay safe and watch out for UFO’s. We look to be…[Read more]

    • Due to weight gain since giving up smoking, I think I can give the lead boots a bodyswerve, Jenn – but thanks for the thought. Will be a truly terrible wind if it can lift me off my feet.

    • Morning Jenn :-) if that doesn’t work, you can get ‘woodland shade grass’ now – it has rye in it and seems to work quite well – of course, it depends on how much soil is under the tree too… Have a good day :-)

      • Hi Jenn. I have Stipa tenuissima popping up everywhere and have lots in pots fromb nes I dug up…..nowhere to put them though ;-)

    Hiya Dix – by ‘lazy day’ do you mean ‘recovering’? ;-) :drink: :beer: :drink: :beer: :drink: :beer: :cake: :coffee:

    • As if jenn ;-) ;-) . Might just have a quick butchers at the GC, roast pork for din din, and a couple of glasses of rose’. :lol:

    Afternoon clickers. Was lovely but has now greyed over but set to change again – the sun is doing the hokey cokey today :-) Just milling around doing little jobs today – what gets done gets done and what doesn’t doesn’t :lol: Just made some soda bread so I will have 2 happy boys in the house. To gc or not to gc that is the question. HAGU…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. Very mild but a bit grey as yet. Don’t know what to do today. Might head down to the old mills in Sawbridgeworth to see if they have anything for my furniture projects. Or I may head to the shops to find some cosiness for the festive season which shall not be named :lol: Or I may be roped into moving some of the slabs from…[Read more]

    • Hi Jen…go girl and get the twinkles sorted. On my Poppydog walk this morning I noticed a Halloween tree in a window, so I need to to that too, I do a Easter tree, but never thought of a Halloween one :good:

    Morning clickers. Is it misty drizzle out there or drizzly mist? Either way it’s not very inspiring. The weekend looks good though. No plans as yet – need more tea before my brain swoops into action. HAGU whatever you are getting up to today :good:

    • Morning Jenn, dry and windy here, you keep your drizzle, I have some towels to wash & dry. Feeling a bit yuk still this morning, a muzzy headache and nausea,need some food though, then the couch and a duvet for me for the rest of the day :-( .
      HAGD :rose:

    • Misty drizzle and drizzly mist are equally wet – so won’t bother to guess. Think we are expecting the tail-end of a hurricane this weekend, so life will continue much as normal – mostly wet.

      • Morning Sheila, I think mizzle is the worst type and sounds pretty depressing too. :light-rain: Mind you, the arid landscape here leaves much to be desired at times, including a pond which is still empty. The two resident Moorhens are certainly stalwart characters, although Mrs seems to have developed a limp sadly. Hope you have some sunshine…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn :-) tea is good! Yep, the weather looks better, especially on Sunday – let’s hope we all get a share. HAGD

    • Morning Jenn, plenty of tea on the go here too ;-)

    Morning clickers. Brighter today but I am a bit knackered to take advantage of it. Will have a faff and a potter and be happy with whatever does or doesn’t get done. Have just started a new book (Merrily Watkins no. 14) so hope to find a quiet half an hour later for a cuppa and a read :coffee: HAGU whatever you are up to.

    OK, so wjere is this warm weather from Spain then? Evening clickers. Blummin cold out there with a brisk wind that finds all the nooks and crannies :run!: Halfheartedly a bit outside – clearing and sweeping mainly but was not up for this dull, cold weather so came inside and made some pecan & maple syrup Belgian bun type things. They are just…[Read more]

    • Evening Jenn, we had a fairly good day here in Norfolk, and it was warm, I was out in a fleece and we haven’t put a fire on tonight. It has been very windy though!!! Your cake/ buns sound yummy :good:
