• Afternoon all, a busy few days looking after grandson Max, park, Dino golf, dinosaur building, a bit of gardening, got Max to help top dress the pots in the garden with strawberries, herbs and dahlia’s in. We saw a fox visiting the garden, completely unfazed by us both waving at him through the window.
    Lost my mojo last week due to lack of sleep…[Read more]

    • Hello Lynn :-) Well, congrats on the big decision to resign from the nursery :rose: A difficult one to make but quality of life has to come first and it will be one less worry :good: Very good luck to OH for 2 interviews! Sounds like you’re enjoying the half-term with family – may it continue :rose:

    Morning all!! Weathers warming up! Just been planting some shrubs. …. still attacking the compost heaps!! Phew!!

  • Morning Clickers, we are a very small Gang now, I can hardly see with these blooming Cataracts, and various other Bits playing up, still it is lovely to be able to write to Friends every Day, I finally managed to find out what I was doing wrong, that is why I was not posting so much before. Iffy Day here, got DIL, coming, o Joy! as have masses to…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. Grey-ish and a bit murky outside so not sure what I will get up to today. It was like this on Monday and as I geared myself up to get outside, it tipped down. Think I will sow some onion seeds – once I find the propagator – it’s in the shed :confused: Have a good day :blowkiss:

    Morning clickers. It’s looking grey out there but I am snug in bed with a cuppa. We had a lovely walk yesterday afternoon up very steep hills with stunning views and back through Ragleth Wood. Lemon drizzle in the conservatory was our reward :-) I managed to just stay awakefor Shetland. We are walking today, not sure where, though. I’m buying…[Read more]

    Local church last night, moon behind ,flood lights from football ground lighting the front
  • Morning clickers :-) weather doesn’t look particularly good at the mo but it’s not fully light yet, so I’m not sure what’s on the cards. Trying to sort out some of the raised beds on the concrete as more room is needed – probably won’t all be done this year though. Got a tiny essay arriving for proofreading this morning – won’t take me long. Hope…[Read more]

    • Morning Jane, here I am ;-) :lol: A good project for you, sorting the beds. I hope you get some playtime after your proofreading :-)

    • Hope the work went quickly – and easily Jane. A few of my raised beds need the wood replaced, am trying to cajole OH into sorting it out quickly – in case he gets a new job soon. ;-)

      • Hi Karen :-) work done – took longer than I expected :bad: raised beds have their downsides – not many but they’re a pain to shift/repair!

        • At least it’s finished. :good: I love my raised beds, but yes, they are a pain when repairs/replacements are needed. ;-) How many have you got now?

          • Hi Karen :-) 7 big ones and 6 quite small ones. The small ones are on the concrete where we want to park the van – also on the concrete are 2 builders’ bags that I also use as raised beds. I managed to half empty and then drag one of them to a better place (for the van ;-) ). It doesn’t get an awful lot of sun there and so I’m sure I won’t miss…[Read more]

        • That is a good number to have Jane, hard work emptying builder’s bags, don’t envy you that task. :bad: Will you be able to relocate the small ones, or maybe you don’t need to move them? Why on earth would you go to somewhere not nice? :confused: :lol: I’m sure you will have lots of fun travelling about. :love:

    Morning Clickers, much better morning thank goodness as we ended up with torrential rain most of yesterday – just horrible. :-( Hoping for some drier news inside as well as the plumber is due to sort out the leak in the hot press this morning. ;-) I’m off to the pool shortly, so leaving the OH to deal with that. :good: Will catch up later, have a…[Read more]

    • Morning Karen :-) not exactly sure what your hot press is but I hope you get it sorted today :fingers-crossed: How was OH’s interview? Have a good swim and we can catch up later :-)

      • Morning Karen and Jane, A hot press is a very large airing cupboard Jane. Yes, let us know how OH went on. Enjoy that swim :-)

        • Morning Cilla and thank you for explaining, keep forgetting that “hot press” is local to Ireland. ;-)

      • Morning Jane, Cilla has it spot on. :good: hopefully sorted now – will wait and see. ;-) Aye, OH thought it went fairly well, but think there will be a second round of interviews for that one. He has another one tomorrow down South. :confused: Am fast losing track. :lol:

        • He’s getting lots of practice then ;-)
          A very large airing cupboard? I don’t even have a very small one :lol:

          • It’s actually any size of airing cupboard Jane. Traditionally where the hot water tank was located, so shelves/cupboard round it where towels/clothes could be aired and stored. A press is a cupboard, so all sorts of presses here, but “hot press” is the only one in common use, though you would still hear older folk talking about a kitchen press,…[Read more]

    • Enjoy your Swim, Karen, I miss it so much.x

      • Thank you Tina, I do love my swimming. Do you not have a local pool with wheelchair access?

        • Have a local Pool, Karen, do not know about Wheelchair acsess. got nobody to take me, and cannot stand on my own, anyway, also, only have the use of one Arm.

          • That’s such a pity Tina, they have really good disabled access and assistance at out local pool. I’m sure you do miss it, sounds like you were a very keen swimmer. :rose:

      • Yes Its 10 now K, I went over to it over a year ago, I thought it was the biggest mistake i made at the time,But i have grown into it,The PC i had was still working OK, but so slow that i mostly used to use the i pad,There was about 10.000 photos on there though.Still think windows 7 was the best though, I have done away with internet explorer and…[Read more]

        • Aye, windows 7 was one of the best, but 10 is ok once you get used to it. I actually quite like it, but, like you, I won’t use the new version of Internet Explorer either. ;-)

    Inspired by Walt I popped up to the roof and looked at the moon :love:
    Last night it was scudding through puffy clouds, but tonight it’s sailing through a calmer sky and trees :-)

  • Morning all, just a quick Visit, as Cleaner, is due any Minute, and if she see’s me at the Computer, she will want to Vacuum under my Chair! all the while muttering to herself, am lucky to have her, she is 72! does a very good Job, and bullies me relentlessly. “ent you got no Duck!”me, “sorry, E, will put it on my Order!

    Good morning All :high-five: from a blue-sky- :notacloudinsight: -C.P.
    We had a beautiful ,almost full moon again last night. It lit the white house walls like early sunshine, but white, not a rosy hue. Earlier it was scudding through fluffy clouds reminding me of that poem … ‘The road was a ribbon of moonlight …’ [Alfred Noyes, The Highway Man…[Read more]

    • Morning Anne :-) I’m of the belief that the mind never actually forgets anything and springs memories on us, wanted or not :good: :bad: :lol: Enjoy the sunshine :-)

      • As I have repeated many times Jane, my Mum used to say [sometimes a little wistfully, sometimes with smug satisfaction :-) :love: ] “They can’t take away your memories Anne” :rose:

    Morning clickers. Earlier cuppa this morning as we are leaving for the Shropshire hills for a couple of nights to see big sis and bro in law :-) Hopefully not too much traffic with it being half term. The cats haven’t cottoned on yet :lol:

    • Morning Cilla :-) hope you have a traffic-free trip – surely all the kids will be having a lie in and make everyone else leave late :lol: Have a safe trip and enjoy yourself in that lovely part of the country. Lots of nice photos, please :rose:

      • Morning Jane. Lots of photos, shall be saving them up for your comp :lol: The fox food was gone again including two eggs and some spiced apple crumble but I shan’t see the pics until thursday evening. I haven’t seen pregnant baby fox at all, just Demelza her daughter so I hope she’s sharing the biscuits with her mum, it has been known :fingers-crossed:

  • Morning clickers :-) just hung some washing up and rescued a ladybird from the bottom of the basket :lol: A clear-ish sky, so I hope to be outside for as much as possible while it’s nice weather. Hope you all have a good day :-)

    Morning Clickers, not a bad looking morning, from what I can see of it so far, though we are due for rain most of the day. :bad: Off for an early swim as it is half term and early swimming club won’t be in. :cool: Apart from that not sure what is on the cards for today, but will have my fingers crossed for OH and his interview this pm. Have a…[Read more]

    • Morning Karen :-) fingers definitely crossed for OH :good: I thought the street would be quiet here as it’s half term but the Council have chosen this week to close part of the main road for some work (taking advantage of the lack of parental traffic) and are using my street for a diversion :confused: I hope your pool is empty when you get there…[Read more]

    • Morning petal. Enjoy that swim before the germ factory get there ;-) :fingers-crossed: definitely for OH…..and for a return of peaceful days for you :lol: I hope you don’t get too much rain.

      • Morning girls, busier than I expected! All the adults trying to get their swim in before the kids arrive. ;-)
