    third party only – don’t go there BS and please make sure you have building and contents insurance on your home – it is not worth it unless you can afford to replace everything in the event of total loss – married to ex insurance claims chappie, things may have changed but the principle is still the same

    • Don’t worry, Jenny – would never allow building and contents insurance to lapse, mainly because we were burned out of our home when I was about 14 years old, and lost everything. I was left with the clothes I was wearing – and unfortunately my father had let his policy lapse. There was a drought that year, and it was still burning at 4am the…[Read more]

    love it BS – my OH is called “Grumpy Gorilla Grandad” by his middle grand daughter, grumpy because he usually is 0- gorilla because he is very hairy – all said with love (mostof the time – ha ha!) hope the book writing goes well for your friend

    never mind overlooked items BS – found a bag at the back of the wardrobe one Easter which should have been stocking fillers the previous Christmas, never even remembered I had bought them, must have been out shopping and bought a second lot – ha ha – and I was quite young then too!!!

    evening all (Dixon of Dock Green again – must stop showing my age like this lol) grey old day here, mincepies and sausage rolls in the freezer and cake has marzipan on it, – thats enough activity for today, tea and strictly final will do me, enjoy your evening folks.

    • Sounds a very productive day :good: , enjoy your evening to :-)

    • Enjoy your age Jenny … it’s great to get this far, so far :confused: :lol: even if the knees are knacketty and the mind goes wandering further than the legs will take it!! HALE :rose:

    • I’m feeling quite please with festive progress too, Jenny – we oldies know how to pace ourselves, eh? Can remember hideous years gone by, writing gift tags at midnight Christmas Eve, and sweating about overlooked items. Or is it just that we have done it so often, that practice makes perfect…..?

      • good morning Sheila :high-five: I wish :confused: :lol: :rose:

    morning all, sun trying to peep out of the grey, bit of frost but not much, off to church shop, double shift today as we are a bit short of volunteers, enjoy your day folks

    morning all, four days of frost and wunshine does wonders for us lot up here, bit nippy with a touch of northern breeze but beautiful sunrises and the wetness is beginning to dry up enjoy your day folks

    P.S – no offers for the house but a lot of viewings – had as many since beginning of July as we had in 3 years with the first agent – we keep hoping

    we’ve got little Teds too with black habits on because of the Augustinian Priors who were the order who were in Cartmel Priory – bring your Teds with you Anne and they can party with ours – ha ha!

    know the feeling BS – we have a little one across Windermere which the County Council took over a few years ago and it is not being run as good as it used to be, more often it is not running which means a long drive to work for a lot of people

    • Oh Sheila … so would I :lol: Good luck to all the users of Kilcreggan Ferry :good: :rose:

    • I worry for them. Employers will not be understanding forever – they can’t afford to be. Lots of people catch trains to Glasgow at the other side, and probably have rail season tickets which will be non-refundable. Same as yours, this has only been a problem since the Council sacked the pierman and contracted it out to a very inefficient company.

    was on a later shift today Anne – another person has volunteered to help out as well. I am for the time being doing two shifts on a Monday as the person who follows me is due to go for an operation and Dr doesn’t want her getting too stressed – – and then this other person offered her services when she visits her 2nd home every 2 weeks – so today…[Read more]

    • Reasonable arrangement Jenny. If I am ever your way on Monday would love to pop into your shop :-) I found the first little Teds in St Albans Cathedral shop, years ‘n years ago :lol:

      Hello Jenny. I don’t know where the weeks go, either. You and Bean are very good doing curtains, that sort of sewing is not my thing either. Have a good weekend. :-)

    you are doing a cracking job Jenn, daughter had to use her food bank when DWP stopped her benefits a couple of years ago, it was a life saver and an affluent area is no indication of what happens behind closed doors
